Hi @Rouven,

Yes, we publish product news at the beginning of every month 🙂 You can see the previous ones here.

We don’t send any notifications, but if you keep an eye on our Product News section, you will see them there.

Will there a March Update as well? Is it possible to be notified of these updates?

Hi @MSAdvocate,

Thank you for highlighting this! We have fixed the article :)

Shouldn't it be PowerPoint instead of Powerpoint? At least in Microsoft it is used to be called that way. Also, I suggest to use “Microsoft Office 2021 (Microsoft Store edition)” instead of “2021 Microsoft Store version of MS Office”. It may confuse your customers otherwise.
