Overview:

Currently, users experience some frustration when using Office products because of all different routes that they must use to access all their content. The Quick Access feature will allow users to access shared libraries from both their SharePoint and Teams locations. When the user opens files from shared libraries, these libraries will show up in the form of a list which will encourage users to save and open files to these libraries with ease. This helps deliver a more consistent, coherent storage location experience across M365 apps. This new backstage experience won’t show up in Teams, SharePoint, or OneDrive but does include storage locations from OneDrive and Teams (sites/channels) which are stored on SharePoint.

When this will happen:

Targeted Release: We will begin rolling out late June 2023 (previously late April) and expect to complete by late July 2023 (previously late May).

Standard Release: We will begin rolling out late July 2023 (previously mid-July) and expect to complete by late October 2023 (previously early September).

How this will affect your organization:

This feature will make it easier for employees to get access to more of their storage locations, including Microsoft Teams where they may store more of the content for their projects.
