#Heres #whats #announced #Microsoft #week Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
It’s the first Friday of the year, and as usual, we’ll be rounding up all of the features Microsoft announced for Microsoft 365 throughout the week. Here’s everything you need to know:
Extended view of the profile card in Teams
Teams users will soon have access to a new feature called 109526 on the Microsoft 365 roadmap that will allow them to use enhanced profile card views in Teams. This allows your profile visitors to retrieve more information from your profile card i.e. an overview of the profile, contact information, organization chart and the LinkedIn tab.
The advanced view feature is already available in Outlook and is expected to be generally available to Teams users in April.
Microsoft Teams: The Teams calendar now includes schedule popouts
As we previously reported, Microsoft Teams will be getting a new feature that will allow users to open the scheduling form as a separate window. The feature, tagged 99197 in the Microsoft 365 roadmap, was originally scheduled to be generally available by the end of November, but this has since changed and is now expected to be generally available in mid-January.
In related news, Microsoft has identified an issue with Teams’ calendar. It doesn’t seem to update automatically for some users. The company is currently working on a fix and plans to have it available by week 1 of February. In the meantime, you can try this workaround:

Graph API for Teams meeting transcripts
Microsoft is introducing new organization-wide application permissions and RSC application permissions to ensure apps can access meeting minutes for a specific meeting. According to Microsoft, “Resource-Specific Consent Credentials (RSC) specifically allow admins to authorize users to give consent to apps, giving them specific access to the transcripts of a team meeting they’re installed on, rather than giving them access across the tenant .”
The feature, tagged 95788 in the Microsoft 365 roadmap, was released as a beta around the end of July last year, although the estimated general availability timeline has been pushed back from late February to early April.
That’s it for this week folks! Let us know which feature you’re most looking forward to in the comments section below.
