Office 365/Office 2019 updates up to May 2019

I've decided to start writing a monthly blog on updates introduced as part of Office 365, but need a firm base to build on.  With that in mind, this blog brings Wise Owl up to date, listing as it does a summary of all of the updates to Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word from the time of the release of Office 2016 to the present day (early May 2019).

The idea is that from this point on I'll blog each month on just those new features introduced in Office 365 for that month.

If you're not sure whether you're using Office 2016, Office 2019 or Office 365, just run one of your Office applications:

Office 365 start screen

Here the start-up screen shows that I'm using Office 365.

The main difference between the versions is that Office 2016 and Office 2019 are fixed, whereas Office 365 will update (usually automatically, unless you've changed your settings) on a monthly basis. 

So with that preamble, let's start with general new features which apply to several versions of the Office applications, before looking in turn at features specific to each.
