Latest Insider build of Office 2016 for Mac brings Outlook improvements, Excel fixes

Microsoft today released a new Insider Slow build for Office 2016 for Mac. This Version 16.11 is a minor update with most of the suite not receiving any updates or features. Outlook for Mac is the biggest beneficiary, however, with improvements to the People experience and more. Find the full change log below.

Outlook for Mac:

  • Improved People experience: when creating a new email or event, pressing delete key after clicking on a recipient to display the new contact card now removes the recipient without having to first dismiss the card. Learn more about the new contact card in our People article posted on the Outlook Blog

  • Display second time zone: when adding a second time zone to the calendar grid, a label is now displayed for the default time zone. Learn more about new time zone features in our Calendar article posted on the Outlook Blog
  • Set start and end time zone: when dragging and dropping, or resizing an event in the calendar grid, the end time now remains set in the proper end time zone

Excel for Mac:

  • Fixed several crashes.

  • Fixed the icon for inserting a Timeline filter to a PivotTable.
