Feature management workspace
The Feature management workspace provides a list of features delivered in each release. By default, new features are turned off. You can use the workspace to turn them on and view the documentation for them. For more information about Feature management, see Feature management overview.
All new features remain in preview for at least 30 days, and typically 30-60 days. Major features are generally available in October and April of each year following the preview period. As soon as you see new capabilities in the Feature management workspace, you can turn them on. Some features may be on by default.
At times, an integral feature will be on by default and can't be turned off (for example, the Feature management workspace).
Once a feature is generally available, it may be turned on or off in production environments. The Feature management workspace indicates when a preview feature will become mandatory. This date is usually on October 1 or April 1 to align with the semiannual release plans. You can't turn off mandatory features. Until it becomes mandatory, you can turn a feature on and off in all environments.
