Today again update on new feature of my favorite cloud SAAS service – Microsoft 365

New feature – Microsoft Editor Spellcheck and Grammar in SharePoint Pages

Background :

  • Microsoft has published news – Microsoft will add the Microsoft Editor service to SharePoint Pages and News and enabling their spellcheck and grammar capabilities
  • But then timeline for this feature is changed and got delayed

Updated Timelines :

  • Targeted Release: (select users and entire org) will begin rolling out in late December and expect to complete rollout late February (previously mid-January)
  • Standard: will begin rolling out in mid-January and expect to complete rollout late January. This feature should be already in our tenant now 🙂

  • This feature / update will add the Microsoft Editor service to SharePoint Pages and News and enabling their spellcheck and grammar capabilities
  • This will allow proofreading to take place in SharePoint without relying on the Editor browser extension
  • Example in below news, SharePoint keyword is written as – “sharepoint
