Students and teachers: You may be eligible to get...

It was just about a year ago we announced Student Advantage, a benefit that allows eligible students to get Office 365 from their school for free. One drawback to Student Advantage—the onus has been on the school to initiate the service, create an account and order the Office 365 license on behalf of the student.
Today we’re making it easier on the school IT department with a new self-serve model for students that lets them sign up for the free service on their own.
If you’re a student 13 years-old of age or older, here’s what you can do the check your eligibility and get Office for free:

  1. Go to Office 365 for Students.
  2. Enter a valid school-provided email address.

Here’s what qualified students will... | Read more »

Today’s post was written by Steve Birge, Content Developer for Office.com/support.
You’ve got a meeting coming up where several team members will be presenting. So how do you jumble and juggle multiple PowerPoint presentations without reinventing wheels, losing pieces or looking unprofessional? We’ll look at a few ways to make a new presentation out of slides you already have, and see how you can take the same slide deck to several meetings and give customized, unique presentations at each one.
Join us for our Office 15-Minute Webinar at 9:15 A.M. Pacific Time. There’s also a 20-minute Q&A afterwards. You will need to register for this webinar (it takes only a few seconds).

Starting something new. We’ve all been there. The first day of school, starting a new job, or even moving to a new town. As we become familiar with the new surroundings, buildings, new faces and personalities, schedules, and rhythms we start with a home base from which to explore.
Using technology is no different. It’s important to have a home base where you can start, a place where you can access all of your services, downloads and settings and launch into new experiences, applications and adventures to expand your possibilities.
Today we’re announcing a new home page experience in Office 365. We’re rolling out the new home page to current Exchange or SharePoint customers now. Customers can access the home page from the web experience of Office 365, which you get to by signing in to the Office 365 portal.
Once there, you just click the Office 365 logo in the top left-hand web navigation to go to the home page. New customers... | Read more »

Building a global brand with local flavor  

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Anders Munck, enterprise architect with the Carlsberg Group.
 
The past 14 years have been some of the most tumultuous in Carlsberg’s 167-year history of manufacturing beer. We used to license our beer to other breweries, but when our competitors started buying them up, we had to change our business model. So we began acquiring our own breweries. We’ve grown from serving four small markets in 2000 to successfully reinventing ourselves as a global beer brand. Becoming the fourth-largest brewer in the world brought with it a huge challenge: how do we incorporate many globally dispersed businesses into one company? And how do we ensure that our 500 different brands all live up to Carlsberg’s high standard of excellence?
To address these questions, Carlsberg introduced a vision for the business that we call “GloCal,”... | Read more »

Office 365 APIs Starter Project for Windows

We’re building a set of starter projects that are intended to help you become familiar with the different Office 365 client libraries on the platforms you care about. In each project, we’ll show you how to use the client libraries to integrate your users’ Office 365 data into your app.
Using the Office 365 client libraries can simplify your life greatly as you code against the Office 365 APIs from your app. Here are just a few  examples:

  • Use the client libraries’ authentication business logic for getting the client access token. This means you don’t have to implement the authentication, authorization, and consent workflow that’s required for OAuth.
  • The client libraries remove the requirement to implement JSON serialization/deserialization in to/from objects; they have parity with the service metadata description; they manage the client access token; and they can make the object model easier to use.
  • Using the client libraries, you can leverage... | Read more »

What does it mean to own your data in Office 365? ...

Kamal Janardhan is the principal program manager in the Office 365 Information Protection team.
In our last few From Inside the Cloud posts, we offered an insider’s perspective from lead engineers Perry Clarke, Vivek Sharma and Shawn Veney on how we protect your data at rest, who has access to your data within Office 365, and how Office 365 does continuous compliance. They explained the various mitigations that we have in place for data security, access control, and ensuring that customers have the ability to comply with regulations or their own organizational policies.
These posts followed an overview on why trust Office 365 with Rajesh Jha, the head of Office 365 engineering, who emphasized how we ensure that you retain full ownership of your data in the Office 365 service. Today I want... | Read more »

Today’s post was written by Yu Ukai, program manager with Office Lens team in Japan.
I’ve often heard that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and with today’s update to the Office Lens app on Windows Phone, such a translation is actually possible!
Office Lens is a great app for capturing whiteboard notes and paper documents and saving them in OneNote. Today it got even better with the ability to convert pictures of whiteboard notes and paper documents directly into Word documents and PowerPoint presentations—that you can edit, author and edit again.
Converting hardcopy documents into Word files
Take a picture of your hardcopy document using your phone and tap Save. A new Word document is automatically saved to your OneDrive, so you can access it on any device.

Getting Java client apps to run the way you want

I sometimes find the Java setup on my various Apple devices to be a mystery.

Recently, I was trying to get a Java applet to run in the same way on 2 iMacs and my MacBook Air. The applet is a simple vpn client from Juniper that lets me access a Citrix Desktop from any Mac that I can install the Citrix receiver client on so I can work on 'Company stuff' from a large screen iMac when I'm sat at home or from my MacBook when I'm on the road (it works fine over 3/4G).

The first thing is that you have to do some configuring of both Java and Safari to get the applet to run at all.

Once that was all done, I could log in from all my Macs, fire up the applet and establish a secure connection.

On two of the Macs, as soon as I fired up the Citrix app, the Java vpn window would show 'error'. The console showed a Java crash. But on the third Mac, everything worked fi ...

A few months ago, I took a look at 1849 from SomaSim. This Gold Rush-themed city builder for iPad had a fair bit going for it, but lacked in a few crucial areas to make it a true stand-out on the App Store. SomaSim has since added in a sandbox mode, and just last week the first content expansion, entitled Nevada Silver, went live. | Read more »
