Additionally Microsoft finally releases a slightly rebranded version of the FSLogix Full suite which is now called Microsoft FSLogix and doesn’t need a license key anymore. Also the versioning has been changed, to reflect the style of several other Microsoft of Citrix products with now 4 digits,the first 2 digits refer to the year, and the last 2 digits refer to the month. The version being now is called 1907. Check out if you’re eligible. You must be licensed for one of the following Microsoft products:

If you have to need any older version of FSLogix that still needs a product key (not recommended) you are allowed to use the following key, if you meet the requirements (see above): MSFT0-YXKIX-NVQI4-I6WIA-O4TXE

And last but not least several important improvements have been made about different products:

  • OneDrive’s Files on-demand feature will work on Windows Server 2019
  • More options for the Outlook Cached Mode
    • The Mail Inbox can sync before the Calender
    • Reduce the number of folders being synced
  • OneDrive has a new installer that works per machine instead of per user
  • Teams has a new installer that works per machine instead of per user. This installer is going to be improved in the upcoming months.
  • Windows Search per-user index (I’m not sure if this will be a Windows Server improvement or if the FSLogix feature meant)
