We’re excited to announce the full release of Version 2.0 of the Periodic Table of Office 365. We’ve included a bunch of new features thanks to a lot of feedback we’ve received from all of you. You can access Version 2.0 from the same link as usual:

Updated navigation experience

The menus have been rearranged and centralized to make your navigation experience that much easier. In fact, we rebuilt the entire Table from the ground up, so we took the opportunity to improve the layout.

Which tool when?

The biggest question of the Office 365 ecosystem is “Which tool do I use for this scenario?” We’re aiming to help answer that with context-based guidance on which apps to use to get a task or process done. Our Which Tool When wizard will guide you to the right apps based on the need.

Log in for your personalized Table

While it was a big deal when we rolled out the license filters for the Table, the apps that were displayed for a given license (e.g., Enterprise E3) may not actually match the apps you have access to. Lots of times, Office 365 admins remove access to certain apps.

But now the Table can display exactly which apps you have access to and grey out the rest. Simply log in using your Office 365 username and password and the Table will show you your personal license. Every time you return, you’ll have your Office 365 experience shown.

Your personal launchpad

We heard from many of you that you like to use the Table as your way into your Office 365 apps. So we improved the experience by adding launch buttons to each app that supports it.

Best yet, if you’re logged in, you can even access tenant-specific links like those to SharePoint and OneDrive. Make the Table your home page and you’ll never need the Office 365 waffle again!

Customize the Table for your use

In the coming weeks, jumpto365 will be rolling out a premium version of the Periodic Table that you will be able to edit to meet your needs. That means you can remove apps your organization doesn’t use and even add non-Microsoft apps that you do use! In a slick editor experience, you can pick from pre-populated icons like Slack, ADP, SAP, GSuite, and more, provide titles, descriptions, tile colors, and even links to launch the app directly. Stay tuned for our upcoming announcement!

We still want feedback!

The reason we’ve been able to continuously improve is because of all your feedback and feature suggestions, so please keep them coming! To leave a note, click the blue Help button on the bottom-right of the page, enter “feedback”, then click “Leave us a message”. We’re looking forward to hearing what you think!
