Microsoft Roadmap is an all-in-one place, comprehensive and invaluable resource for anyone who engages in 365 admin. It points out all the features and enhancements, right across the Microsoft 365 estate.


Yes, all the information is here for you: release dates, end-of-life support dates, upcoming changes, cloud features, productivity apps, features that are being developed and evaluated, and a whole lot more.

Running a business and keeping abreast of all the technological things that are sent your way can be pretty daunting. See what’s on the horizon with Microsoft Roadmap”

So if you would like to know what Microsoft has planned, just go to Microsoft 365 roadmap. Equally, you can access it via Microsoft Teams. Simply go into search mode, and you can see what the tech giant has in store for you, by drilling it down by item, by product, release phase, etc.


Visibility of New Features


It’s there to help you plan for any upcoming changes and align your business strategy with Microsoft products, as they are developed. Knowing when features are coming online, can help you prepare with training your team, and how to deploy it across your business, so that you not only have a smooth transition but without any breakages.


The roadmap is laid out in three sections:


  • In Development – stuff being developed and tested.
  • Rolling Out – These are updates that have become available.
  • Launched – Fully released features that are now available for everyone.


The roadmap has been around since September 2018, replacing the previous Office 365 roadmap. (The website supports RSS feeds, so, if you would like to be notified with real-time feature updates in Outlook, supported browsers, or mobile readers).


Staying informed is vital when it comes to the successful adoption of any upcoming Microsoft 365 innovations. The roadmap is dynamic, so any of the features and updates are subject to change as features evolve, so keep an eye on it.
