Office Insider version 15.36 is rolling out for Macs - here's what's new

If you're an Office Insider with a Mac on the Fast ring, a new build of Office 2016 is available for you. The version number is 15.36 (170524).

The changelog doesn't include anything in the way of front-facing features, but as you'd expect, there are a number of bug fixes:

  • Google accounts: Non-supported folder actions and Follow Up options are now hidden instead of appearing as disabled

  • Templates: New icon for saved templates (.emltpl extension)

  • Delegates can now add Skype for Business online meeting details when scheduling events on behalf of principals

  • After a delegate accepts a meeting invitation on behalf of a principal, the event will now show as Busy instead of Tentative

  • Preferences to automatically sign and encrypt outgoing messages are now respected when using Resend

  • Decrease and increase indent actions in the Format menu now work properly for numbered lists

  • Position of the separator between the calendar sidebar and the mini calendar is now maintained

There is also one known issue:

  • Certificate for outlook.office365.com keeps prompting intermittently
    • This issue is being actively investigated; stayed tuned for updates

If you're on the Slow ring instead, you should also have seen some new features recently, mainly in Outlook 2016. These include Read & Delivery Receipts, and Drag & Drop Emails to Create New Items.

In order to jump on the Office Insider Program, you need to be a paid Office 365 subscriber. Once you are, you can open any Office application, and go to Help -> Check for updates, where you'll find the option to begin receiving pre-release builds.
