When this will happen:

Rollout will begin in late October 2023 and is expected to be complete by late November 2023.

How this will affect your organization:

Users in Outlook for the web will have the ability to update their settings in order to hide Favorites if they do not use or want to see them. By default, Favorites will be visible, but with this feature, users can opt to hide the Favorites experience from their view. Once hidden, users can always go back and unhide their Favorites.

What you can do to prepare:

There is nothing you need to do at this time. You may want to notify your users of this update.
