    Can the acronyms feature be fed from the enterprise level?

    I know MS has real problems when comes down to deadline and shipping time, but it is awful to hear "late January" when the title is December 2018.

    An acronym is an abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word (e.g. ASCII, NASA and RADAR ). The example shows BPO and EDC. These are not acronyms, they are abbreviations. I think the UI might have the wrong title.

    I see the new features for Office 365. However, I have the most updated version and still cannot find the functions. Can the video speak to when the feature Is available?

    See, your own video has nice text and overall animations and transitions, yet what we have in PowerPoint is essentially same as we had in 2010

    Jim Naroski,
    Dear Sir,
    Can you tell us when will the "linked notes" feature, that's ability to take linked notes in OneNote while reading from source materials in Word, PowerPoint and internet explorer, will come to office 365 and OneNote for Windows app. Especially, now that Edge browser can read and annotate PDFs and EPUBs, why isn't the linked notes feature has been brought over to MS Edge app and OneNote for windows 10. This will bring ability to take freeform linked notes to the PDFs and EPUBs, the format's which are more common than MSWord for research papers and textbooks. Kindly consider bringing Linked Notes feature to MSEdge, it's the browser which has the potential for becoming the best browser for students and knowledge workers.

    These video series are excellent … and that Whitepaper on Passwords is pretty good too — especially the section on common misconceptions. Well done.

    It would be great if the PowerPoint Slide Reuse feature had a way to take the latest content from that original slide if for instance, numbers on the slide get updated. This would require that both decks be hosted online, but I see this often where slides are just out of date.

    Thank you Microsoft for your continued enhancements of Microsoft 365. 10 years ago, I thought the 'Cupertino Way' was the only way but over the years you have won me back with Windows 10, One Drive, Surface hardware, and Microsoft 365. I have not been more happy with the seamless operation across my multiple devices.

    Finally, thank you for these recurring update videos. It is a great way of summarizing the new features and reminding everyone Microsoft 365 is an evolving product.
