Microsoft has released Build 15928.20198 to the current Microsoft 365 channel. In this update, there are feature updates for Access and Word as well as resolved issues in Excel and Word. Some of the key features in this update include the ability to code sign Microsoft Access database and VBA code, and tag team members with tasks in Word to increase productivity.

The release notes for this update, also known as version 2212, are as follows:

Feature updates


  • Enable the ability to code sign Microsoft Access database and VBA code: This update enables the tools/digital signature command within the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) IDE (integrated development environment) for current Microsoft Access database formats. Signing a database will allow VBA code to run on the database even if the Trust Center settings specify that only digitally signed code should be run.


  • Tag your team members with tasks: Create and assign tasks without leaving Word. Simply add a comment, @mention your team member, press Ctrl + Enter and highlight the tip. Your comment becomes a task, and your work is done! See details in Blog post.

Problems solved


  • Fixed an issue where when you right-click a chart and select Edit, the application closes unexpectedly.


  • Fixed an issue where users might see a “Contacting Server” dialog when trying to open a file.
  • Fixed an issue where a tab stop marker would not work using the ruler.

Regarding mentions in Word, to use the feature you just need to open one of your documents located in OneDrive or SharePoint and highlight the text you want to leave a mention on. You should see a new reply button that you can click, then type @ followed by the name of the person you want to tag, then you can assign the task using a checkbox before clicking the blue arrow to assign the task.

Once the task is solved, you can click on the check mark in the upper left corner of the comments window. In the upper left corner, there is a reopen button to reopen the task if the job needs adjustment.

Although these updates should arrive with this update, Microsoft warns that it is rolling out features to the current channel over time, so if you don’t have any of the features yet, you should get them soon.
