Our Road Ahead - Microsoft Access Engineering Priorities Oct 2022
Published Oct 12 2022 05:45 PM 1,801 Views

If you remember back in May 2022, we blogged about moving to a new model for how we communicate our Access feature priorities vs. the Microsoft Public Roadmap.


We promised we would communicate updated priorities as plans evolved. New feature development priorities will be listed in regular blog posts but in the Microsoft Public Roadmap we will only list those new features that our engineering team has 90% confidence will be shipping in the month listed. 


We just completed our plans for the next semester (which for us is 6 months Oct-March) and we wanted you to see our updated priorities and why we made them. 


Our focus for the next year is really in two key areas 

1) Improving Access product quality, customer satisfaction and critical modern Access features

2) Learning from our newly released Dataverse connector and iterate where we see critical areas that can be improved to evolve the hybrid cloud story for Access customers with Power Platform.


Based on these areas of focus, below is our list in priority order on what we are working on over the next 6 months.

Currently the Macro Signing feature is now available in the latest beta of the Microsoft 365 Current Channel. We encourage you to use it and give us feedback. We will be updating the public roadmap to reflect our 90% confident date in the coming month.
