Microsoft Plans for More Intelligent Versioning for SharePoint Online Document Libraries



SharePoint Online makes extensive use of file versioning. Coming in November 2023, we will see SharePoint Intelligent Versioning based on usage and the probability that a version will be needed for a restore. The new intelligent mechanism will replace the current method of setting a fixed version count for document libraries. Sites that need fixed version counts can continue, but SharePoint intelligent versioning should become the default when the feature reaches general availability in early 2024.

Hi Tony,
We're into mid-April 2024 - any idea where this is in the planning for general release?
Checked the roadmap and now schedule for preview in May - I kind of need this now for a particular client...
I have no idea what's happening here. Maybe Microsoft will say something at the M365 conference at the end of the month.
