Halo, I wonder how microsoft choose which users to get new feature flags get activated earlier than other users. Is it by random users, location matter, usage of users, or any method?

For the last couple months, Dynamic View and new presenter modes were announced to be released for Public Preview users. But in my case and for many others, we didn't those features activated eventhough we are in public preview. Until recently I got those features activated along with the whole users in my organisations which are regular users. But there is no explanation from microsoft why is it like that. If the features should be activated at once for all user in the organisation, then you should announced it already released for the public preview users.
Last, is there any way that we, as public preview users, trigger the activation of new feature flags manually from our side? May be from the setting config or devtools?
It will also be nice if there is some setting in admin center to decide when users will get launched new features activated for the users.

Thank you

Hello @RikkyCitra,

Thanks for your feedback. New features are enabled for all users in Public Preview before launch (GA) although 100% rollout might take a few days. Any feature that comes to Public Preview is announced in the Microsoft Tech Community forum here by @Kaushal Mehta (LYNC)  with instructions on how to use or enable the feature (if required). Sometimes a simple sign out/in of Teams helps in pushing of the latest update. Please note that not all the features go through Public Preview right now. The team is working on streamlining this process and bringing more predictability in the Public Preview feature release timeline.

 

Thank you,

Preview Team
