In other Windows news, a new Microsoft Word is in development, and it is set to support @mentions. According to TechRadar, Microsoft Word will eventually get an update that features a new tool that would enable users to tag others in their shared document.
This upcoming feature will let Microsoft Word users create a comment that has capabilities to create, assign, and track tasks from multiple collaborations within the document. Right now, the feature is listed as “in development” but is scheduled to arrive in December.
This new Microsoft Word feature may not come as a surprise to some, as @mentions are already available in Microsoft Excel. The new feature is set to improve online collaborations, especially with shared documents or files that several colleagues need to work on at the same time.
This kind of function has long been available in Google Workspace’s Docs, Sheets, Slides, and more, making collaboration easier. Microsoft’s decision to add a similar function to its Office suite is aligned with its mission to improve the software experience.
So far this year, Microsoft stock has declined thanks to pandemic-related production challenges, a struggling economy, and a decrease in operations in Russia, Nasdaq reported. But Tigress Financial analyst Ivan Feinseth is confident that the company will overcome these headwinds, attributing this capability to their “extremely strong Azure and Cloud adoption, gains in its Microsoft 365 application suite, and growth in Teams, Dynamics, and Power Platform.”
