Access Roadmap

There were NO CHANGES to the roadmap between last week (2022-09-24) and this week (2022-10-01).  The Access roadmap was last updated on May 31, 2022.

Listed below is a snapshot of the official Access Roadmap.

"In Development", "Rolling Out", and "Launched" are Microsoft terms that I pulled straight from the public roadmap.

"Development Priorities" do not appear on the Access Roadmap.  Instead, they get updated from time to time in official Access blog posts.  I'll include a link to the official Access blog post that lists the current development priorities as they get updated.

Development Priorities

The items listed below reflect Microsoft's order of priority and were published in the following article, Changes to Our Public Roadmap and How We Communicate Access Feature Priorities.

  1. Inconsistent Database Error Fix
  2. New (Modern) Web Browser Control (to support Chromium Edge)
  3. Enabling Large Address Aware (LAA) for 32-Bit Access
  4. SQL Monaco Editor
  5. New Microsoft Graph Data Connector
