MC320162: People centric search rollout update (SharePoint, Office.com)

Updated June 28, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Since previously communicated (MC275345 – Sept 2021), we have updated the people-centric search rollout timeline below. After the gradual rollout began in December, we have worked to improve your experience around finding content through people and understanding people through their content by offering greater consistency and reliability in SharePoint and Office.com. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 68783.

People-centric search is a pattern that lets you zoom in on a person to view, explore, and search the enterprise graph around them. This has the dual purpose of enabling you to find content through people, and to understand people through their content. When you pick a person, you will be able to search through their work; however this will only include items that you already have permissions to view or modify.
