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 »

Calling the ballgames from OneNote with profession...

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.

Providers that support both TLS and SSL 3.0 will not be affected and require no changes.To check for compatibility, we have already disabled SSL 3.0 on the Provider Communication interface in the development environment only.

Vijay Kumar is a senior product manager and Shawn Veney is a principal architect on the Office 365 team.
As part of Microsoft’s commitment to compliance, we strive to ensure that our cloud services, like Office 365, meet or exceed the breadth of regulations and standards our customers require.

The Garage Series for Office 365: Crash course in...

On this week’s show Jeremy Chapman is joined once again by scripting guy, Greg Stemp, to apply PowerShell to practical tasks within Office 365. Greg demonstrates how PowerShell can be used for automating bulk tasks, building advanced queries against data in the service, saving the results to a file for other processes to use and some things you just can’t do in the user interface. If you’ve been putting off learning PowerShell to manage your Office 365 environment, this is part two in a series to help you get started.

Last week we kicked off a two-part series for using PowerShell to save time in managing Office 365. This week I’m joined again by scripting guru, Greg Stemp, and we apply theory to practice and spend almost the entire show demonstrating common tasks you would need PowerShell for. Specifically we show:

Today, when you log in to Outlook.com, OneDrive.com, or Office Online, you may notice something new. We have updated our header to create a consistent and simple way to switch between your Microsoft services—the app launcher.
Last week we announced a new way to organize and launch apps in Office 365 for business. Today, we’re introducing the new app launcher, which offers a single point of access to the personal services you use daily: Outlook.com, People, Calendar, OneDrive and Office Online.  We’re excited to say that launching apps is now the same, whether you’re using Office 365 at work, or attending to your personal life in Outlook.com. Consistency just makes sense!

Click to launch, click to switch

Today’s post was written by Matt Gauthier, senior program manager with the Office Online team.
Click to launch apps
Last week we announced a new way to organize and launch apps in Office 365 for business cloud-based services. Today, we’re starting to roll out the new app launcher for our consumer services—namely Office Online, Outlook.com and OneDrive.  Outlook.com users have been switching apps this way for quite some time, so today’s change represents a small visual change. However, the exciting news is that now launching apps is the same whether you’re working or tending to your personal life. Consistency just make sense!

Performance and scale improvements to Project Onli...

Chris Boyd is a senior program manager lead on the Project Engineering team and Krishna Mamidipaka is a senior product marketing manager on the Project Product Marketing team.
To provide a delightful user experience and better support the scale at which some of our largest customers operate, we have started to roll out performance enhancements to Project Online tenants worldwide. While some of these changes will be visually evident to the user, others could be more latent.
Here are a few common things that will feel much snappier as a result of these investments:

  • Project Center—In particular, navigating to a specific project from Project Center. We invested in optimization that eliminates certain intermediate steps.
  • Interacting with projects on the web—Performance optimizations, all the way from SQL tier to the web UI will speed up user experience.

Today’s post on Office 365 ProPlus was written by Markus Petrak’s, corporate director of Integrated Business Solutions, New Technologies / Office 365 for Henkel AG & Company.
Here at Henkel, we’ve been very busy modernizing our IT infrastructure. After upgrading our computers to get everyone on Windows 7, we decided to adopt Microsoft Office 365 for all of our productivity needs. Office 365 is a cloud-based productivity solution that includes Exchange Online, Lync Online, SharePoint Online, and the Office 365 ProPlus client. We had been using Lotus Notes and Office 2003 and felt we were not achieving the full potential of the organization. We wanted to break down siloes, and in the past we depended on email for the majority of communications.
This is why we wanted to invest in a modern, integrated set of tools to support a more productive and... | Read more »

Demoting An Open Directory Server In Yosemite Serv...

The command to create and tear down an Open Directory environment is slapconfig. When you disable Open Directory from the Server app you aren’t actually removing users. To do so, you’d use slapconfig along with the -destroyldapserver. When run, you get a little insight into what’s happening behind the scenes. This results in the following:
bash-3.2# slapconfig -destroyldapserver
The logs are as follows:
2014-09-18 14:42:02 +0000 slapconfig -destroyldapserver
