@cuong Hi Cuong!
Would love to get my hands on these, but I have an MS365 Apps for Business subscription (English). Although I'm in the Beta channel with regard to Excel, it seems I'm missing the boat here. All publications I find refer to the new data types being available for MS365 Personal and Family subscribers. Any idea if/when this will reach Business subscribers?

@Riny_van_Eekelen We can't promise a specific timeline at the moment, but we do have a plan for Businesses to enable Wolfram Data Types. At the moment, we didn't want any businesses to take any sort of data dependency on Wolfram while we are still finishing most things. We want to allow businesses to Opt-in to Wolfram data if they choose, without the buttons necessarily being available by default.
That being said, please try logging in to Excel for the Web, you may be able to see the ribbon buttons available there. If not, we may still be blocking them based on you're sign in from a business account. Please send feedback from the Help Tab in Excel for the Web, and include ATTN: Kayceer with a description of how you can't see Wolfram data types. This will allow me to look at some telemetry and identify if we have a bug somewhere, or if we are doing it intentionally at the moment.

Thank you for the info. As I said before, technically I can understand it.
Depending on what I want to do, I also have to choose the ending.
But as a user, I don't want to understand it.
As a user, you don't want to understand why something doesn't work,
you want to know how it could possibly work, even if only theoretically.
It's about adapting to the end user and not taking the technical limits as a measure.
We saw that with smartphones, where someone did not stick to the technical limits
and followed the users' requirements more ... in the process,
he turned an entire industry upside down.
To cut a long story short is just one thought i wanted to share.
If it doesn't fit here or if this is impossible, please just ignore it.
In the end I would like to thank you for your interest in my thought
and for taking the trouble to read it all through. ... and as I said, it's just a thought :).
