Office Release Notes

Office for Mac is gaining support for a new feature today.

For those on the Office Version 16.42 (Build 20100402, Insider Slow), Office can now recommend or apply a sensitivity label to content automatically.

Here is how Microsoft describes this feature in detail.

Auto-apply or recommend sensitivity labels 

Office can recommend or automatically apply a sensitivity label based on the sensitive content detected.  

To enable this feature:

  1. Open a document with admin-defined sensitive terms, or type admin-defined sensitive terms into a document. Wait for the scanner to process these sensitive terms.
  2. Observe that a yellow bar appears across the screen – a policy tip providing a recommendation or auto-apply.

Within MSIT, you can trigger this if you are part of the M365 Inner Ring, and you enter the term CC52A-CLPTestRecommed into a document.
