what version of Office 365 has the LAMBDA function? I've currently updated to 16.0.13530.20000. , but I'm getting a ?NAME# error when I try to use it.

Hello @DesigningKnights,


The feature is available on version 2012 Build 13519.20000 or higher. Currently the feature is only available to a portion of Insiders right now but we look to expand the availability later down the road. 




@Evan_Bolin What's the current status on availability?

If it is still restricted set of Insiders, how do I get into the inner circle?
