Outlook for Microsoft 365 Apps Feature Update for December 2021

Fashionably late to the New Year’s party comes the release of the December feature update of Outlook for Microsoft 365 Apps in the Current Channel (previously known as the Office 365 Monthly Channel).

It comes with 1 new feature for Outlook and 1 highlighted fix. There is 1 additional fix in the general Office Suite and another 1 in Access which also affect Outlook.

  • Improved Calendar Search
    Improvements have been made to Calendar search, largest of which is the ability to more easily find the next occurrence of a series in search results.
  • We fixed an issue that caused users to see garbled text in some fields when exporting contacts to a CSV.
  • Access: Implemented a change which enables full support of requirement set 1.11 and 1.9 for Outlook add-ins.
  • Office: We fixed an issue where the teaching callouts (tips) about the new look of Office did not appear in Outlook. Now, users of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote are notified about the changes to the new look of Office, which includes information about what changed and how to change settings, or toggle off the experience.

Note: Depending on your installation type, this update can be installed via the Update Now button in Outlook or the Microsoft Store and updates Outlook to: Version 2112 (Build 14729.20194).
