This is Patrick again from the Office Collaboration team. Ever have a document shared with you and then had trouble finding it again? Yeah, us too! To help with this issue, we’ve created a new Shared with Me feature. You can get an early look at the feature on Word, PowerPoint and Excel in the latest Office Insider Fast update for Office 2016 Version 1610 (Build 7329.1000 or greater.)
Here’s how it works: When someone shares a document, presentation, or spreadsheet with you, that file will automatically appear when you click Open > Shared with Me.
For the file to show up in Shared with Me , the shared document must be stored on OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, or SharePoint Online.
We’d love for you to take this feature through its paces, paying particular attention to the following:
- How long does it take for documents shared with you to show up in the list?
- Is the list accurate?
As an Office Insider Fast participant, you're first in line to see and use the Shared with Me feature. Don't hesitate to let us know how its working for you and where we might improve!
