Next to most features, you will find links to additional content (these open in a new browser tab). [blog]: Most features are explained in a blog, along with screenshots, for a quick overview of the features and benefits. [video]: Some features are discussed and demoed in a video, as part of our longer release video. [user guide]: Most features have a dedicated article which provides step-by-step instructions on how to use them. [training]: A micro-lesson is available for this feature in our Learning Center. Some lessons may cover multiple features, so several links can point at the same training content. The remaining features are self-explanatory and don't need an article or video.

Note that the new versions have been   thoroughly tested   and can be used on your models and in your regular activities. Phase 1 enables members of the   feedback group   to try out the add-in first. Any customer/partner/employee can join. In phase 2, the add-in becomes available for   download   for all users In phase 3, all users receive a notification in Microsoft Office that a new version is available There are about 3 weeks between phases, the target dates for phases 2 and 3 may change.   ℹ️  How and why upgrade: We recommend following our governance best practices to upgrade to the another version. You can use any of the non-deprecated versions below, although we recommend using the latest ones to benefit from the newest functionalities. Should we deprecate some versions in the future, we will contact you directly and update this page.
