We need a "Is this feature deployed to my tenant yet?" tool
People in the world, both admins and users, are constantly asking whether new features Microsoft has announced as on the way or rolling out are deployed to their tenant yet. This often results in a lot of confusion and probably support cases and questions into Microsoft asking these types of questions.
We could solve this by building some sort of "Is this feature deployed to my tenant yet?" tool. This tool would very simply authenticate the person checking via Azure Active Directory, and then return a simple result for the feature you are checking on. Results could be:
- Targeted Release Only
It would also be nice if IT Admins could provide a small bit of text/guidance for users in case they come across a feature where the answer is Yes, but the user does not have access. This could point them towards some sort of Support function, request process, etc so IT has a better idea of the needs of their users.

Definitely. This is a grand idea!!!

Or even more simple and faster for Microsoft. Build numbers for each tool in your tenant. then we can just follow up via build notes or something to know if we have them deployed or not.

actually this would be awesome while should also limite the helpdesk ticket while users can check by them self if licensed and if not make a request to get the license, maybe using flow or powerapps to get workflow behind.
