The Preview Features setting in the SharePoint admin center lets you enable or disable integration with other services. The setting is enabled by default.
Note: The Preview Features setting isn't related to the first release option, which allows you to receive new updates and features as they become available. If you're interested in signing up for that, see Office 365 release options.
What the Preview Features setting enables
Use the Preview Features setting to enable the following features, and others that are added in the future.
Users in your organization will be able to create new Visio drawings from SharePoint document libraries and from OneDrive. To help them quickly get started, we recommend sending to your users an email with this important help topic link, Create and edit a diagram in Visio Online.
They’ll also be able to open Visio files from shared links and edit the files if they have edit permission.
PowerApps and Flow integration
You can create custom solutions by integrating PowerApps or Flow with your SharePoint lists. When you do this, SharePoint data might be used outside of your SharePoint environment. If this is a concern, select Disable preview features for this setting. If you disable preview features, the PowerApps and Flow buttons won’t appear in SharePoint. See the following links to learn more about how PowerApps and Flow work with SharePoint.
Power BI integration with Excel Online
When you use Power BI, your data is sent to the Power BI service. If you have implemented compliance policies for your SharePoint environment, these policies won't extend to the data as it's processed in Power BI. If this is a concern, select Disable preview features for this setting.
Important: When you disable preview features, your users will no longer be able to use Excel Online to view and edit workbooks that rely on Power BI.
To enable or disable preview features for your organization
Sign in to Office 365 as a global admin or SharePoint admin.
Select the app launcher icon in the upper-left and choose Admin to open the Office 365 admin center. (If you don't see the Admin tile, you don't have Office 365 administrator permissions in your organization.)
In the left pane, choose Admin centers > SharePoint.
Next to Preview Features, select Enable preview features or Disable preview features.
