    Hi Jesper, I have a question – when you say "next SharePoint Online Service Update" – how can I tell exactly what update you are referring to?  I ask because, as a SharePoint admin, I've received a notification as of Feb 23 regarding a SharePoint Online service update, but I don't know if your post and this email could be referring to the same update.  Any pointers on how to know precisely what update is being discussed, and what will be included in the update, will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
