Microsoft has just launched a plan to revamp the feature of task publishing in Teams, and here’s what it means.

As spotted from the company’s 365 Roadmap site under Feature ID 144248, there will be new options to give users more control over who is notified when a task list is published or un-published.

Users will have more control over how they notify their teams about task updates. They can choose to notify all owners and members, just the owners, or no one. In this way, this flexibility will help users communicate task updates in a way that is most effective for their team.

“Similarly, you will be able to choose who to notify when unpublishing a task list,” Microsoft adds. 

Microsoft also says that this option will be available worldwide starting September 2023 (General Availability) but through Targeted release. That means this new update will be released to a select group of users before it is released to the general public. This allows the developers at Microsoft to test the update with a smaller group of users and get feedback before releasing it to everyone.

Speaking of which, the Redmond-based tech giant just added a feature to insert and play videos in Word documents and PowerPoint presentations through Microsoft Stream. As spotted on the roadmap site, Microsoft says that this feature will be available on desktop clients and the web, but not on mobile.
