Thank you @Nir Hendler! One question - is this preview public or private? "Automatic labeling in Office on Windows and for the web (preview)"

if private - how can i apply? :)


This is a public preview and is enabled if you have Office 365 E5 / AIP P2 assigned to the user and if you opt in SPO integration with sensitivity labels. Word is already rolled out. Excel and PowerPoint should work shortly as well

ok sorry - my question was not clear enough. i meant

"SharePoint auto classification with sensitivity labels (private preview)" there was a demo at BRK3101 

Just applied for that.


@Wolfgang Bach - Applying labels automatically in SPO is not yet available to the public and will start a private preview soon
