Create and open projects faster
We've improved the speed of Project for the Web so you can create and open projects more quickly.
Get Project for Education
School admins, students, faculty, and staff can use Project for Education to create projects using timeline and board views, and see all their projects in a roadmap.
See how far you've come
Track how close you are to being done by selecting your project name and viewing what percentage of all tasks in the project are complete.
Save time and simplify work with improved speech-to-text
A new dictation toolbar, suggestions experience, and auto-punctuation make it easy to create content with your voice in Word
Get stats on your workbook
Workbook Statistics provides an overview of the content of a workbook, to help you more easily discover its contents.
Preview your video
When you insert a video on a slide you can play the video in edit mode, so you see what the audience will see.
Duration and effort, unlinked
For unassigned tasks, Project will no longer automatically recalculate duration and effort when one of them is changed.
You spoke, we listened
We heard your feedback and have been making fixes. Two to know about: The browser no longer shakes when you are scrolling in Project, and tasks due Today no longer appear as late in Grid view.
Improved View mode
View mode allows you to see all the ribbon commands, and to switch easily to and from Edit mode.
Zoom out further in Roadmap
See an even bigger picture when you view your roadmaps at 4 additional levels: 18 months, 2 years, 3 years, and 6 years.
More colors to match your mood and your message
Want to give the shapes in your presentation title color? PowerPoint now has 16 million colors to choose from so you'll always find just the right shade.
See all your slides at a glance
Use Slide Sorter to organize your slides into sections and drag them to reorganize your deck.
Create Visio drawings in Teams
Edit diagrams directly in Teams if you have a Visio license, or just view and comment on them if you don't.
New connection experience
It's easy to add a connection point anywhere on a shape, and even have multiple connectors on the same edge.
Quickly access your most recent projects in Edge
Projects and roadmaps show up in the list of your most recently used items in the new Microsoft Edge, so you can easily pick up where you left off.
Comments with context
Respond to comments and mentions right from email without opening the document.
More commands where you need them
When you want all the command buttons at your fingertips, switch your ribbon to the classic layout. Just press the V (chevron) button in the lower right corner to make the switch.
Link directly to a task
Collaborate more clearly by copying and sending a link to a specific task in your project. In any Project for the web view, select the three dots, then select Copy link to task.
Copy the data, keep the formatting
Whether you're copying from workbook to workbook, or from worksheet to email, text, cell, and table formatting are retained. Formulas, hyperlinks, conditional formatting, and data validation rules also stick around so you can focus on what's important. And if you want to paste plain text, try Ctrl + Shift + V.
Create stunning, high-quality diagrams in Excel
With the Visio Data Visualizer add-in for Excel, create basic flowcharts, cross-functional flowcharts, and organizational charts from data in an Excel workbook.
Switching panes just got easier
Panes are now tabbed, which means easy switching and more space for what you're working on.
