Excel Power Map–December update for Office 365

Last month we shipped a great time saving feature—playing a tour directly from any scene. This month we’ve improved Geocoding performance, made the Auto Fit feature for custom maps more accurate, and added another popularly requested feature as well—a quick way to select all items when filtering.
When we shipped Filtering back in September, we got a lot of positive feedback, as well as several new requests. One common request was to make it easier to select all of the items in the filter search results. Well now you can, just click the (Select All Search Results) check box and we’ll select not only the visible items for you but also the ones that are cut off because you have too many results. This is a very convenient way to explore your data through filtering by slowly narrowing it down.

New Document Inspector features for Excel, PowerPo...

Steve Kraynak is a program manager for the Office team.
Beginning with the November and December 2014 updates for Microsoft Office 2013 and 2010, several enhancements are being added to the Document Inspector, also known as the “Check for Issues” tool in Excel, PowerPoint and Word. The Document Inspector helps you to prepare your documents, presentations, or workbooks for publishing and sharing by checking for items that may contain hidden or private information. In some cases, it will remove such items from your document, in other cases it alerts you even if it can’t automatically remove the items. For more information about the Document Inspector, read about it on Office.com, where there are articles explaining how it works in Excel,... | Read more »

Check Active Directory Status On Windows

When scripting, sanity check logging takes way more time that actions. Before binding to an Active Directory domain, you should verify that your system isn’t currently a member of an Active Directory domain. After binding, you should also check that settings are as expected. Use the get-addomain commandlet to do so:
Get-ADDomain
To be more specific about a given domain:

Strengthening our multi-state competitive advantag...

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Steven White, chief information officer for Brock & Scott
When I joined Brock & Scott a year ago, the firm had come through a sustained growth phase, expanding from its two founders in 1998 to more than 935 employees in 17 locations across seven states in the southeastern United States. We developed a reputation for our work for some of the United States’ largest banks. There are few firms that have our multistate footprint and the ability to serve our clients across a large geographic region is one of our competitive advantages.
However, to improve that competitive advantage, we needed to maintain the same high level of expertise and service across all our offices. So one of my early priorities as CIO was to help Brock & Scott implement a common set of business productivity tools that would foster a... | Read more »

Enable AutoAdminLogon For Windows Deployments

There are 3 registry keys that admins in the Windows world use to enable automatic logins, often required for deployments that require a logged in user to setup user environments, such as configuring app deployments as part of a mass deployment.
The required keys in the registry are:
HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon’ -Name DefaultUserName -Value “Krypted\Administrator”
HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon’ -Name DefaultPassword -Value pass
HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon’ -Name AutoAdminLogon -Value 1
Once set as above the administrator on the domain krypted will automatically authenticate with a password of pass. To put this into a powershell script:
PS C:\> New-ItemProperty -Path ‘HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon’ -Name AutoAdminLogon -Value 1
PS C:\> New-ItemProperty -Path ‘HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\... | Read more »

You can get the currently logged in user from a powershell script by using
$env:username. But most deployment scripts use elevated privileges. Therefore, you need to be a tad bit craftier.

Here, we’ll use the Get-WMIObject command to look at system data and then effectively grep for the username object:

Get-WMIObject -class Win32_ComputerSystem | select username

Video calling between Skype and Lync available now

Today’s post was written by BJ Haberkorn, director of product marketing for the Lync Team
In 2013, we enabled Lync users to contact people on Skype using instant messaging, presence, and audio calling right from your contact list.  I’m happy to say that we’ve now taken the next step by adding video calling between Lync 2013 and the latest Skype for Windows desktop client, available for download here.  Now Lync users can conduct everyday business and collaboration “face-to-face” with customers, partners and suppliers who use Skype.

Office 365 news round-up

Merriam-Webster defines collaboration as working “with another person or group in order to achieve or do something.” So it’s no surprise that for an increasing number of businesses and individuals, the real-world definition of collaboration is Office 365.
Office 365 is built for collaboration—across the web and across devices—making it easy for you to work with other people and get things done, even when you and your colleagues are separated by time or distance, or you’re all using different platforms and devices. Office 365 combines the power of world-class productivity tools, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive, Lync and Skype, with the social capabilities of Yammer and the ability to discover the right information at the right time with Office... | Read more »

Organize your holiday with OneNote

Holiday shopping can be hectic. There’s so much to do in a narrow window of time that sometimes we can lose sight of the cheer in it all. Let OneNote help you keep everything in its place—so you can stress a little less and enjoy each moment a little more.
Holiday gift lists
Keep track of everyone you’re buying for with organized wish lists in OneNote. (Even convert handwriting to text with OneNote 2013 to make a child’s list legible.) To simplify, categorize each list by person, store, or discount deals. When you’re shopping on the go, save time with the recently updated OneNote Clipper. Just clip a product you’re interested in and automatically save the most important information to your notebook for later. You can also choose to send the clipping to your inbox with the Email to OneNote feature.
Wish list ideas
If you’re stumped on what to buy... | Read more »
