Howdy folks,

Many hundreds of thousands of you have used the our new Access Panel (MyApps) while it was in public preview to launch your Azure AD connected applications, change memberships in groups, and quickly access your security settings.

Today, I’m excited to announce the new Access Panel is now Generally Available (GA)!

Since we launched Public Preview we’ve received a ton of interest and great feedback. We’ve listened to your feedback to offer a refreshing experience on both desktop and mobile. The Access Panel is better than ever!

The new design’s biggest highlights are its modern layout and optimized controls. If you’re convinced already, go ahead and check it out for yourself.

If you need a little more convincing, here are the top three new features you’ll notice in the new design:

Mobile-friendly with a completely new look

Our responsive layout adjusts to the perfect size no matter what device you’re on. The new layout makes it easy to scan through your apps and add new ones.

“At a glance” notifications and a new user control

Notifications now alert you instantly when an access request comes your way and lets you review them at once. The user control lets you quickly switch between organizations anywhere on the site.

Improved group management experience

Group management is now a breeze with everything you need on the main page. You can easily see what groups you’re in or own, and join or create new ones.

If you use our mobile app you’ll also notice a new icon along with the upgraded design.

Since the holiday season is in full swing, we’ll have a two-month transition period where individual users can opt in. Our target date to switch on the new design for everyone is the end of January.

Of course, we always love to hear your feedback and suggestions, and look forward to hearing from you!
