Starting in early June and to be completed by the end of September 2021, Microsoft Office will display a list of recommended files on the File tab, or home/start page of Word, Excel and PowerPoint on Windows. This list will allow you to keep track of work and quickly access files with higher activity such as those with edits, mentions and comments by people you interact with.
This feature uses machine learning to predict which files you’re most likely to want to work on next and presents those as a set of cards you can choose from. Only files that you have access to in OneDrive or SharePoint are suggested.
Recommended files in Office has already been available on Office.com and Office for Mac and is now coming to Office on Windows.
Recommended for you allows you to keep track of work around you and choose files with activity that matters most to you. On the home page in PowerPoint, Excel and Word you will see files recommended for you.
Each card shows the name of the file and who made changes or shared it and why it was recommended like @mentions, recent edits or comments.
