Outlook for Microsoft 365 Apps Feature Update for January 2023

Microsoft released the January 2023 feature update of Outlook for Microsoft 365 Apps in the Current Channel.

However, it looks like most of the Outlook Team is still on holidays or have been busy working on other things as this release does not contain any new features or published fixes for Outlook.

However, the Excel Team has been quite busy on improving the PivotTable user experience;

  • PivotTable overlap improvements
    We have improved the experience when PivotTables overlap other content in your workbook.
  • Excel PivotTable version compatibility user messaging
    Excel now gives alerts about PivotTable compatibility issues and provides informative documentation and workarounds.
  • Date Support for Pivot Tables Connected to PowerBI
    In PivotTables that are connected to Power BI datasets, dates are now supported for analysis as the data type is no longer a string. For example, filtering data on specific timeframes is now possible.

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 2301 (Build 16026.20146).
