Office 365 news round-up

One great advantage of our Office 365 cloud-based productivity suite is that you no longer have to wait months or years, until a new version of Office is released to receive software updates and improvements. You get new features immediately, as part of your Office 365 subscription, as soon as they are available and ready to use.
Microsoft developers are the source of those ongoing improvements and new features—and not only our internal developers. Office 365 is a platform as well as a product, and there is a growing community of developers who are building new applications for Office 365, and creating new solutions to enhance the service and tailor it to the needs of their organizations. During the past two weeks, we took two important steps to provide additional resources and support for Office 365 developers. First, we launched the newly redesigned Office Dev Center, to provide essential training... | Read more »

When submitting your app for review, you’ll be asked whether your app uses the Advertising Identifier (IDFA) to serve advertisements. If you indicate that your app uses the IDFA, but it does not have ad functionality or does not display ads properly, your app may be rejected. Make sure to test your app on an iOS device to verify that ads work correctly. Similarly, if you indicate that your app does not use the IDFA, but it does, your app will be put into the “Invalid Binary” status. Learn more about the IDFA in the iTunes Connect Developer Guide.

Use an ipsw to Manually Upgrade an iOS Device

Recently, I needed to test the behavior of something during the upgrade process of an iOS device. The device was running the latest version of iOS so I needed to use an ipsw to load a specific version of the OS. Usually I use Configurator for running a lot of updates, but I didn’t want to restore the device, so I used iTunes. After I backed up the device, here’s what I did:

  • Download the ipsw file from Apple for that specific device
  • Connect the device (make sure Configurator isn’t open, enter a passcode if needed and then launch iTunes
  • Click on the device in iTunes (You might need to show sidebar if you don’t initially see it)
  • Click on the Summary tab
  • Option-Click on Check for Update (Alt-Click on Windows)
  • Select the ipsw previously downloaded
  • When prompted, click Update
  • When the device... | Read more »

Open sourcing Exchange Web Services (EWS) Java API

Victor Boctor is a principal architect on the Exchange team.
Our last release of Exchange Web Services Java API was in January 2013 (see blog post). Since then, we’ve received feedback about several issues with our model for supporting the Java client APIs. These issues include:

  • License is restrictive. It doesn’t allow sharing of source code modifications except with Microsoft.
  • Hard to contribute. The project doesn’t utilize collaboration platforms like CodePlex or GitHub to facilitate the process for contributing bugs, reports, patches, and other kinds of contributions.
  • Release cycle. There should be a more regular release rhythm, with more fixes and improvements.

Based on this feedback, we decided... | Read more »

Expanding the classroom to global proportions with...

Lindsay Parenteau, senior student, University of Massachusetts, shares her experience with Office 365.
It wasn’t until my senior year as a biochemistry student at UMass that I experienced the potential of cloud computing. I had signed up for an elective course called Decision Making in the Age of Cloud Computing. It’s a combination of biology and business studies where we work with students from around the world to research the efficacy of different biotech companies. We used productivity tools to literally erase the geographical and time zone barriers of working with team members in Russia, Egypt, and Ireland. It was as if our classroom expanded to global proportions to offer an experience that I didn’t think was possible without studying abroad.
My first impression of Office 365 was how intuitive it is to use the cloud-based tools—email, shared calendars, video conferencing, instant messaging, and a collaborative online portal. We went to the portal to get... | Read more »

Access your work files with the new OneDrive for A...

Reuben Krippner is a director of product management for Office 365.
The lines between work and personal life have blurred. People use the same devices for work and personal purposes. Anywhere and anytime, people need to be able to easily access, share, edit and collaborate on the files that matter to them.  
Today we are excited to announce the first OneDrive for Business native experience on Android, part of a significant update to the existing personal OneDrive app. It’s our first app that brings together OneDrive and OneDrive for Business in a single experience. Now, people who use Android phones and tablets can seamlessly navigate between personal and work files within the same app. Everything you save to your personal OneDrive remains separate and distinct from everything you save to your OneDrive for Business, but switching between the two is simply one tap away.

Wesley Holley is a program manager on the Office 365 team and Shobhit Sahay is the technical product manager on the Office 365 team.
Responsible organizations today use a variety of controls and policies to keep their data safe and secure. These controls become even more crucial if the data involved is sensitive information, which can range from industry-wide data (such as credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, or customer information) to proprietary information (such as patents or confidential documents). Protecting this sensitive data is important because it enables organizations to comply with industry, government, and other regulations.
Office 365 already provides these necessary capabilities for email with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) in Exchange, Outlook, and OWA, along with a series... | Read more »

Operation Smile: Nonprofit changes lives with help...

Operation Smile provides free surgeries to correct facial deformities for thousands of children every year. The nonprofit organization wanted to expand the reach of its work, but it needed better technology tools to support growth. The organization adopted Microsoft Office 365 to remove technological barriers and streamline collaboration. Operation Smile can now put the pieces in place to significantly increase its number of surgeries each year and make a difference in the lives of even more children.

10.8: Open a specific browser based on the URL

Usually I want to open Gmail in Chrome and URLs pointing to my development server in Firefox. For everything else I use Safari.

There is this nifty free app called LinCastor that enables you to register your own handler for an URL. Although it had beed designed to register your own non-standard URL schemes, it can intercept standard http and https as well.

In LinCastor (which you need to double-click twice to fully open for editing):

  • Add a new URL scheme
  • Choose AppleScript handler

Paste the following code in, (replacing the stub code at the bottom):

on handle_url(args)
if (|URL| of args starts with "https://mail.google.") then
tell application "Google Chrome"

Use Get Info to See Information About Multiple Fil...

When doing a regular get info, you will have a screen (the Inspector) that shows you some basic information about a file or folder. This screen changes as the file changes, so if you were downloading a file, as the download completes, the file displays an ever increasing size. To see this screen, use the Command key and the i key (Cmd + i). If you have multiple objects selected when using the key, you’ll see each show a summary in its own screen.
However, at times you’ll want to see a Summary Info screen, which shows information about multiple selected objects. This screen doesn’t change as the files that are selected change. To see this screen, highlight a number of files and then use the Command, Control and i keys concurrently (⌘^i) to see a screen as follows.

Today’s post was written by Michael Bouchet, vice president of Infrastructure Services at Reed Elsevier
Reed Elsevier is a world-leading provider of information solutions for professional customers. LexisNexis helps lawyers win cases, Gray’s Anatomy helps doctors save lives, Elsevier BioSource helps scientists make new discoveries. Other Reed Elsevier companies help corporations build commercial relationships, insurance companies assess risk, and government and financial institutions detect fraud.
Our diversity is part of our strength, but it was threatening to become a liability as well. We needed to bring deals to the table that took advantage of our global knowledge assets, but we had a country-specific business model and disparate communication tools. We wanted to enable employees and partners in different offices to put their heads... | Read more »
