On today’s Office Mechanics show, we’ll take a look at the new Office 2016 Public Preview on Windows 10—both on the desktop and on a phone. Ben Walters joins Jeremy Chapman again to the give an app-by-app tour of Office 2016 Public Preview on a Surface Pro 3 and a Lumia phone.

The Office 2016 Public Preview has been available since May 4th and today we are giving an early look at some of the capabilities coming to Office across Windows PCs and devices. There is more focus than ever on data analysis and visualization and in the show, Ben demonstrates what this means using the new chart types in Excel. Office 2016 makes it even easier to create, open, edit and save files in the cloud. We show how the attachment experience in Outlook integrates with OneDrive and automatically configures permissions for recipients. Beyond sharing files from a common location in the cloud, collaboration is... | Read more »

Today’s post was written by Juliet Wei, senior product marketing manager for the Yammer team.
With the whirlwind of Microsoft’s first-ever Ignite conference behind us, I’d like to take this opportunity to recap some of the Yammer highlights and key takeaways from the event.
Our inaugural conference was successful on a massive scale, attended by 24,000 people including IT pros, developers, business leaders and influencers. Thousands of you packed into Yammer’s 20+ sessions to learn more about our new focus on team collaboration and see the experiences we’re currently working on in action. The deep level of engagement and enthusiasm you brought over the course of five days both humbled and invigorated us.

OneDrive for Business introduces new data loss pre...

The ability to take OneDrive for Business files offline, apply changes and then sync those changes back is fundamental to helping people manage their files effectively across devices.
Many organizations want to ensure their users are only able to sync files to managed- or domain-joined PC’s thereby limiting data leakage possibilities on unmanaged home and personal computers. Today we’re excited to announce that we’re releasing this capability for OneDrive for Business administrators! This complements the other data loss prevention investments we’re making right across Office 365.
To find out all the details on this exciting new feature then check out the OneDrive blog and our comprehensive... | Read more »

Take A Screenshot On Apple Watch

Just like with an iPhone, it’s simple to take a screenshot on your Apple Watch. It’s a similar process as on other Apple devices. To take a screenshot from an Apple Watch, go to the screen to take a screen capture of and then press and hold the digital crown (the round button that spins) while you press the side button down (the little button below the digital crown).

The screen will flash for just a second and you’ll hear the camera sound. If you wait a couple of minutes, the screenshot will automatically show up on your phone in the photo library.

What’s Really In A VPP Token File from Apple’s VPP...

Apple’s Volume Purchase Program allows you to export a VPP token and then import that token into a server to create a connection between an MDM solution (e.g. Bushel, Apple’s Profile Manager, Casper, etc) and apps you purchase through the VPP portal. But what’s in a token? The VPP token is a base64 encoded file. You can cat the file and it will show you a bunch of garbly-gook (technical term):
base64 --decode /Users/charlesedge/Desktop/kryptedcom.vpptoken
But there’s more to it than all that. We can run the base64 command to see:
base64 --decode /Users/charlesedge/Desktop/kryptedcom.vpptoken
In some cases, this file can display improperly, if it fails use the following command:
echo `cat /Users/charlesedge/Desktop/kryptedcom.vpptoken` | base64 --decode
The contents of the file are then displayed, as follows:
{"token”:”AbCDe1f2gh3DImSB1DhbLTWviabcgz3y7wkDLbnVA2AIrj9gc1h11vViMDJ11qoF6Jhqzncw5hW3cV8z1/Yk7A==","expDate":"2015-07-03T08:30:47-... | Read more »

iLink Systems—better and faster with Yammer

Today’s post on Yammer was written by Sid Arora from iLink Systems.
iLink Systems delivers next-generation technology solutions to help clients solve complex business challenges, improve organizational effectiveness, increase business productivity, realize sustainable enterprise value and transforms businesses inside and out.
Our CEO, Sree, a strong advocate of the eat-your-own-dog-food philosophy, envisioned the iLink enterprise-level social network as one that can achieve internally for iLink what we claimed possible for our customers through our services—help achieve a cultural transformation.
Since we live and breathe SharePoint both internally and externally, integration with Yammer seemed the logical choice to provide the needed social fabric experience, but we wanted to be thoughtful about how to bring a new tool into the organization and how it would create value for us.
Within a short amount of time, Yammer started living up to its... | Read more »

Today’s post on Office 365 was written by Rafael Bardales, Shared Services Director at CBC.
The Central American Bottling Company (CBC) has been bottling and distributing beverages since 1885, and in the past 130 years we’ve seen many changes to the business and the world. From our initial roots in Guatemala, we’ve expanded operations to eight countries around Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. We’ve been distributing PepsiCo products since 1942, and we now also deliver drinks from major brands like AmBev and LivSmart to our 455,000 customers, most of which are small independent grocers.
Building and managing an efficient distribution network that can reliably deliver products to so many customers in multiple countries presents many challenges.  We need to make sure that everyone in the company—from delivery drivers to executives—always... | Read more »

Office for Android phone Preview now available

Today’s post was written by Jared Spataro, general manager for the Office 365 marketing team.
Over the last 12 months, we’ve transformed Office from a suite of desktop applications to a complete, cross-platform, cross-device solution for getting work done. In January, we delivered the Office apps for Android tablets—and we’re really proud of our 4+ rating in the Google Play store! Today I’m pleased to announce the preview for Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Android phones. Join the Microsoft Office for Android community to participate in the Preview program.
The Office for Android phone apps are modern, optimized for touch and designed for work on the go. Here are a few things I think you’ll love about them:

Reset A Forgotten PIN Code On An Apple Watch

If you use Apple Pay, you’ll be forced to configure a PIN code on that shiny new Apple Watch of yours. If you forget that PIN code, you’ll likely end up on Google looking for a way to unlock it. Never fear, the Googs has come to the rescue. There are a few different options. If you selected to unlock with a phone unlock, then you need only unlock your phone. But if you did that, you wouldn’t be here…

The next option is to log in and reset the watch manually. But again, if you could do that, you wouldn’t be here… So next, grab your charger and then press and hold the side power button on the watch. This brings up a little Power Off button (along with a Power Reserve and Lock Device button). Then do a Force Touch (press hard) on the Power Off button. It takes me five or six tries to get the button to come up, but when you do it just right, you’ll get the Erase All Content... | Read more »

Change The Move Goal On Your Apple Watch

The Activity App lets you set a move goal that matches how much you move around in a given day.
I decided to set mine to match my FitBit, which was a little high, so I dropped it back down. To change it, open the Activity app and swipe right to the calories display. Then, force-tap inside the circle indicating your status.

Use the plus and minus button to set your calorie goal for the day.
Note: Interestingly, the calories are active. If you’re used to seeing those listed by the FitBit, or many other devices, you’ll be used to seeing Passive Calories. The Apple Watch can show you Passive Calories, but by default it displays Active Calories.

De-Cluttering everyone’s inbox

Today’s post was written by Brian Shiers, senior product marketing manager and Kumar Venkateswar, senior program manager on the Exchange team.
Last fall, we introduced Clutter, which moves less important emails out of your inbox and keeps you focused what’s most important to you. Today Clutter is moving over one million emails per day and saves users 82 minutes per month on average. Starting in June, Clutter will be on by default to help more people benefit from Clutter. We’re also introducing new administrative controls for Clutter and improving how Clutter interacts with users.
Administrator controls
Additional controls are being added to help administrators manage Clutter. First we are introducing two PowerShell cmdlets to report on and turn off Clutter for users. These cmdlets are available for use today. Organizations who want to manage use of Clutter should use the cmdlet... | Read more »

Power Map for Excel–May update for Office 365

Today’s post was written by Igor Peev and Daniel Witriol, program managers on the Power Map team.
In the May 2015 update of Office 365 we are proud to introduce a new core feature to Power Map: Custom Regions. The Custom Regions feature allows data to be mapped to the regions that matter most to you, even if they are not the traditional zip code, county, state or country regions. Custom regions are useful for scenarios involving sales districts, school districts, congressional districts, land lot development, crop rotation, geological analysis, and anything else using custom-defined polygons.
The Custom Regions feature in Power Map allows you to import KML or SHP files which contain custom polygons. Once imported, you can use custom regions in the same manner as you would use standard regions such as zip codes.
KML files can be created with a variety of free tools which are available on the Internet, you can read more about them... | Read more »

Today’s post was written by Rebecca Lawler and James Peters, program managers on the Outlook Web App team.
Last year, we released the first wave of OneDrive for Business integration within the Outlook Web App for Office 365 customers. That integration allowed users to send OneDrive for Business files and set edit and view permissions using the Insert > Attachment menu, making it easy to share cloud files without having to separately navigate to OneDrive and leave the context of your inbox.
Today, we’re thrilled to introduce improvements to this integration to make saving and sharing files to OneDrive for Business even easier in the Outlook Web App.
Save attachments directly to OneDrive for Business
The Outlook Web App now lets you save attachments you’ve received in email directly to your OneDrive for Business folder... | Read more »
