When this will happen

Rollout will begin in late August and is expected to be complete by mid-October.

How this will affect your organization

If you’ve configured users for a default sensitivity label policy for Office documents, the label you chose will automatically be applied to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents that users create or modify. Previously, this only applied to new documents only.

Note: This functionality is now generally available for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents on the Web (MC305436), and with this update will extend to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on PC and Mac.
