New Lync for Mac adds Media Resiliency, Conversati...

Barak Manor is a product manager for the Lync team
I’m pleased to say that we’ve just released our latest update to Lync for Mac, and it is available for download on Microsoft Support. This release adds new two features; Media Resiliency and Conversation History, and support for Apple OS X Yosemite.
Media Resiliency
No network is perfect, of course, and we all want the best possible experience when hiccups happen. This update adds Media Resiliency for peer-to-peer calls and Lync Meetings, which does two important things. First, if a network disconnect occurs, Lync for Mac will now automatically rejoin a meeting or reconnect a peer-to-peer call as long as network connectivity is re-established within 30 seconds.
(Try it for yourself. Setup a Lync video call on your Mac. Quickly disconnect and reconnect your network cable, or disable and re-enable your wireless connection. You’ll see the video... | Read more »

Protecting you against the SSL 3.0 vulnerability

As we announced yesterday, driving innovations in security capabilities of Office 365 is a top priority. We understand that the security of your data is important and we’ll continue to be transparent about our approach. To that end, we wanted to share details around Security Advisory 3009008. This advisory provides guidance related to a vulnerability in Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 3.0 which could allow information disclosure. This is an industry-wide vulnerability that affects the protocol itself and is not specific to Microsoft’s implementation. To help protect our customers further, we will be disabling fallback to SSL 3.0 in IE, disabling SSL 3.0 by default in IE, and across Microsoft online services, over the coming months.
Starting on December 1, 2014, Office 365 will begin disabling support for... | Read more »

Office 365 Search is now smarter about spreadsheet...

Steve Kraynak is program manager for Excel Spreadsheet Management.
Businesses use spreadsheets for many critical functions, such as financial reporting and investment modeling, and they need to minimize the risks that using these spreadsheets introduce. The need for strong spreadsheet management is emphasized in these stories compiled by the European Spreadsheet Risk Interest Group (EuSpRIG). Office responded to this need by introducing new features in Office 2013 to help manage the use of spreadsheets for important business functions, and now it has enabled a similar capability in Office 365.
Now you can manage spreadsheets in Office 365
One of the tools introduced in Office 2013 is Discovery and Risk Assessment, a server (on-premises) that helps you find spreadsheets in your organization and determine which present the greatest risk, so you can take steps to reduce your risks. It does this by... | Read more »

Julien Pierre is a program manager and Toney Sui is a software engineer with the Office big data team in Beijing, China.
If your company has deployed Office 365 and it has a central monitoring solution that enables you to continually look at the health of your IT services in one unified place—such as a help desk, reporting dashboard or other solution—there’s good news. Developers and independent software vendors (ISV) with a central monitoring solution like this can now use that solution to monitor Office 365 along with your other IT services, using the OData API. This new client library, the Office 365 Reporting Web Service Client Library, is available in .NET and makes it easier to export reporting data.
The library is available on nuget.org.

Tune and optimize performance of your Office 365 c...

We are pleased to announce new resources to help Office 365 customers receive optimal performance when connecting to Office 365. As a software as a service (SaaS) offering, Office 365 has a number of layers between the servers that Microsoft manages and the end user.

Microsoft runs Office 365 in datacenters around the world; these datacenters are connected by a network to over 1,500 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) at over 50 network peering points on the Internet. This network is one of the three largest networks in the world and provides a substantial benefit to Office 365 customers. Between the Microsoft infrastructure and end users there is the public Internet, the customer on-premises network and Internet connection, and important client application configuration steps. The two new content areas we have focused on are:

Encrypt OS X Yosemite Server

Encrypting a volume in OS X Yosemite couldn’t be easier. In this article, we will look at three ways to encrypt OS X Yosemite volumes. The reason there are three ways is that booted volumes and non-booted volumes have different methods for enabling encryption.
Encrypting Attached Storage
For non-boot volumes, just control-click or right-click on them and then click on Encrypt “VOLUMENAME” where the name of the volume is in quotes.

When prompted, provide an encryption password for the volume, verify that password and if you so choose, provide a hint.

Once the encryption process has begun, the entry previously clicked on says Encrypting “VOLUMENAME” where the name of the volume is in quotes.
Before you can encrypt a volume from the... | Read more »

OneNote gets even better on Mac and iOS

Today’s post was written by Omeed Chandra, program manager on the OneNote team.
Fall is here—at least for those of us in the northern hemisphere—and the days are getting shorter. That means you’ll have to finish your work more quickly if you want to get outside and catch a few rays of sunshine before it gets dark. We want to help, so today we’re releasing an update for OneNote on iPhone, iPad and Mac with new features that make it even easier for you to get organized and be productive!

Yosemite Server And Logs

OS X Yosemite running the Server app has a lot of scripts used for enabling services, setting states, changing hostnames and the like. Once upon a time there was a script for OS X Server called server setup. It was a beautiful but too simplistic kind of script. Today, much of that logic has been moved out into more granular scripts, kept in /Applications/Server.app/Contents/ServerRoot/System/Library/ServerSetup, used by the server to perform all kinds of tasks. These scripts are, like a lot of other things in Yosemite Server. Some of these include the configuration of amavisd, docecot and alerts. These scripts can also be used for migrating services and data. Sometimes the scripts are in bash, sometimes ruby, sometimes perl and other times even python. And the scripts tend to change year over year/release over release.
One of the things that can can be useful about the scripts scattered throughout the Server app is to learn how the developers of OS X Server intend for certain... | Read more »

Expanding data loss prevention (DLP) to SharePoint...

Shobhit Sahay is a technical product manager and Jack Kabat is a principal program manager on the Office 365 team.
One of the key tenets of our approach to security with Office 365 is to give you the right set of tools and services to address your organization’s specific security and compliance needs. Data loss prevention (DLP) is a critical part of the security capabilities we’ve built right into Office 365. We first rolled out DLP  in Exchange and Outlook and then expanded into Outlook Web App (OWA), adding new features along the way, such as policy tips in OWA and document fingerprinting.
But people collaborate and share sensitive information in many ways beyond email. For example, they might have sensitive content in Word documents or Excel spreadsheets created in client applications, and then share those documents with others in SharePoint or OneDrive for Business. As we enhance the collaboration capabilities within Office... | Read more »

New Office 365 extensibility for Windows, iOS, And...

In a world where people move between multiple devices and numerous apps to get things done, today we’re announcing new ways for developers to create applications that build on, and securely tap into the Office 365 platform. With millions of consumers and over 70 percent of the Fortune 500 companies using Office 365, it presents developers an opportunity to reach an audience that’s not only vast, but highly engaged given the number of hours people spend in Office every day.
Today, at TechEd Europe, we announced three new capabilities for developers:

  • General availability of new Office 365 APIs for mail, files, calendar and contacts
  • New mobile SDKs for native app development, and
  • Visibility for developers’ apps through the new Office 365 app launcher.

Today’s post was written by Zohaib Haider Ali, senior product manager for the Office 365 team.
As more and more businesses adopt a bring your own device (BYOD) approach to phones and tablets, keeping corporate data secure on mobile devices is becoming a top challenge. As part of our commitment to making Office 365 the business productivity service suite with the most advanced security and compliance capabilities, we’re excited to announce new mobile device management (MDM) features built in to Office 365 that will help you meet this challenge.
These new MDM capabilities, set to roll out in the first quarter of 2015, will help you manage access to Office 365 data across a diverse range of phones and tablets, including iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices, so you can:

Today’s post was written by Julia White, general manager of Office 365 Technical Product Management.
Today, storage limits just became a thing of the past with Office 365.  OneDrive and OneDrive for Business will now offer unlimited storage—at no additional cost—to our Office 365 consumer and business customers.
OneDrive makes sure you always have all your important content on all your devices and enables multiple people to collaborate and co-author a single document at the same time. Gone are the days of not having that document right when you need it or managing multiple versions of the same document. With OneDrive there is always just one source of truth available across all your devices. What’s more, with Office Delve, that important document your co-... | Read more »

Need A Password? There’s An App For That!

Remember this comic:

Regrettably, password policies don’t allow for a few random words at most organization, so a special character, a capital letter and a number are basically required in most passwords these days. However, if you need a quick and dirty generator that includes a phrase and those additional characters, consider MyPhrase from Björn Albers. It’s simple to use, fast and easy. Good luck out there!

Office 365 news round-Up

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” That was the view of Leonardo da Vinci, one of the most innovative thinkers who ever lived. Although Leonardo valued simplicity and made it a cornerstone of his work, he tackled many complex challenges throughout his life. A true Renaissance man, Leonardo used his genius to invent hydraulic pumps, musical instruments and submarines; create works of art that show a mastery of human anatomy and a deep understanding of human nature; and design flying machines nearly 500 years before the Wright brothers launched their first glider at Kitty Hawk.
Like Leonardo, we value both innovation and simplicity. So as we add innovative new features and capabilities to Office 365, we also strive to make it simpler and easier to use. As an example, we recently announced the new Office 365... | Read more »

The World Series is in full swing and it yields a month filled with memorable home runs, strikeouts and game-winning hits. The soundtrack of these moments stays with you forever because of the announcers who call the games. But this is not a job for the shy or unorganized person.
Calling plays in a three-plus hour baseball game with hundreds of players throughout a 162-game season requires both knowledge and know-how. Joe Block, professional baseball announcer in Milwaukee, uses OneNote on all his devices to keep track of player stats, game stories and even to keep score, bringing the game to life for his listeners. He heard about OneNote from another announcer and friend, Scott Franzke from Philadelphia, who discovered the benefits of using OneNote long before Joe, but has learned even more through their shared use of it. Joe and Scott sat down with us and talked... | Read more »

Three questions to ask when you work on Office doc...

Technology is the great enabler of creativity and productivity. So when you encounter technology that inhibits your ability to collaborate, you have to wonder what went wrong. To choose the right technology for collaborating on Office documents on the web, ask yourself these three questions:

  1. Do you use browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari?

You don’t want to be constrained by your internet browser. After all, the browser is only a means to the end of being productive on the web. Office Online works consistently across all major browsers, including Internet Explorer (IE), Chrome, Firefox and Safari. You do not need additional software such as extensions to make this work. You can view Office documents with consistent file fidelity in these browsers. You can edit Office documents using Office Online across these major browsers without worrying about losing the Office file format or the formatting of the document itself.
