SharePoint Online simplifies storage management

Mark Kashman (@mkashman) is a senior product manager on the SharePoint marketing team.
The journey to simplify the admin experience in Office 365 continues. Previously, we increased all OneDrive for Business users’ storage allotment to 1 TB. Along with this adjustment, we removed the OneDrive for Business quota management tab from the SharePoint Online admin center.
Today we are introducing a new storage model based on usage, making it easier to manage availability of storage across your SharePoint Online team sites. In addition, we increased the number of site collections limits to parallel and adjust the new usage model.
Let’s dive into the details.
The new usage model

Which email application is right for you: Outlook...

In the modern cloud-connected world ubiquitous access to email, files and contacts is key to your productivity and effectiveness—at work and in your personal life. The Microsoft email solution comprised of Outlook and Outlook Web App (OWA) can not only increase your productivity, but also ensure you can collaborate with others, right within your email, in a highly secure environment.
However, only you can decide which email solution is right for you. To help with that decision, we have created an interactive infographic that shows a side-by-side comparison of OWA, Outlook and Gmail. This infographic will answer most of your questions at a glance, while also providing links to more detailed information.

YES Prep Public Schools uses Microsoft Lync to str...

Today’s post was written by Troy Neal, the director of technology at YES Prep Public Schools. YES Prep Public Schools is an open-enrollment charter school system that serves 8,000 sixth through twelfth-grade students in greater Houston, Texas. This is the story of how YES Prep uses Microsoft Lync 2013 to enable educators and close the achievement gap.
At YES Prep Public Schools, most of our students come from communities where only 50 percent of students graduate high school and less than 10 percent are expected to earn a college degree. But we know from experience that all students can achieve at the highest academic levels when they have access to a quality education.
For the past 14 years, 100 percent of YES Prep seniors have been accepted to a college or university. And within five years of leaving high school, 82 percent of our alumni have either graduated or are still enrolled in college.
Despite this academic success, we struggled with disparate... | Read more »

Office 365 news round-up

Microsoft launched Office on August 1, 1989, and for 25 years Microsoft Office has been helping people get things done in their personal and professional lives. We’re proud of that.
The world has changed a lot during the past quarter century, and so has Office. Today, you can experience the power and convenience of Office on your desktop computer, portable laptop computers, or mobile devices such as the Microsoft Surface and Apple iPad. And with our cloud-based Office 365 or Office Online, you can move seamlessly between those devices and use Office wherever you are, with no need for attachments or flash drives to transfer files from one machine to another.
One of the things I like best about Office 365 is that it’s very democratic. Anyone can use Office 365 and enjoy the benefits of better communication, collaboration and productivity. No one is excluded.
At work, everyone... | Read more »

JSON Light support in REST SharePoint API released

The REST SharePoint API has been an extremely popular way for Office 365 developers to work with SharePoint sites, lists/libraries, and list items/documents. One of the big bits of feedback we got from developers using the REST SharePoint API was about the payload of the data that was returned. Our response was to add support for JSON Light. JSON Light is an open standard that allows developers to provide in the header of the request how much metadata is returned. To check out more about JSON Light, head over to the Microsoft OData JSON spec document. You can also check out all the endpoints for the SharePoint REST API over on MSDN.
Before this, when calling the SharePoint REST API, Office 365 developers had to include in the header request : “accept: application/json;... | Read more »

UserVoice driving improvements to SharePoint API

The SharePoint API allows Office 365 developers to call SharePoint to work with the Office 365 building blocks, including Sites, Lists/Libraries, and List Items/Documents. These APIs come in two main types: native SDKs in .NET, JavaScript, and Silverlight; and a REST API.
Our team is constantly listening to you on UserVoice for your feedback on Office 365 development, which is influencing engineering to release new features to the API layer of the Office 365 platform.
Here’s just one example of this. Based on a request in UserVoice, plus direct requests from customers through Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS), the Office App Model Samples team built out a... | Read more »

OneNote Online co-authoring experience improvement...

OneNote has always been a powerful tool to work with others through shared notebooks stored on OneDrive or Office 365.  From teams at corporations tracking work items together, to families sharing household information and to-dos, OneNote is a great place to collaborate in real-time. Today we are happy to announce improvements to the OneNote Online co-authoring experience:

  • The new “People Presence” feature helps you see who else is working on the same OneNote page or is in the same notebook simultaneously, regardless of which OneNote client they are using, so that you can connect and collaborate with them if needed.
  • Improved syncing means your edits are nearly in real-time. This will help you and everyone else to stay on the same page as ideas develop and evolve.

Today we shipped two new samples that focus on standalone web applications that use the AngularJS framework communicating back to Office 365 using the Office 365 API. One is a Research Project Tracker scenario that was written by Andrew Connell (@AndrewConnell) and Scot Hillier (@ScotHillier), and the other is an Expense Tracker scenario written by Dan Wahlin (@DanWahlin). These scenarios highlight the power of Office 365 in real-world examples and show the end-to-end build of the entire solution in Visual Studio. The samples include setup guides (as GitHub markdown files) in each repo that you can follow to get the scenarios running against your own developer tenants, and Channel 9 videos you can watch.

Connect and collaborate with the powerful tools in Office 365 for Enterprise

Top 5 tips for back-to-school on a budget

For students and parents alike, heading back to school is a highly anticipated and exciting time. It’s a chance for new beginnings – an opportunity for students to get a clean start, and for parents to hit the reset button (not to mention, getting the kids out of the house).
Whether a freshman in high school or a freshmen in college, there’s no better way to start the school year than having the confidence in knowing that you’re armed with all the stuff it takes to succeed. From fashion, to supplies, to technology – this confidence often comes at a high price. In fact, the National Retail Federation reports that due to an increased demand for electronics, families will spend an average of $699.28 this back to school season (that’s up five percent from last year), with millennials spending $913 million of their own money.

Communications market update: customer response an...

Giovanni Mezgec is General Manager, Product Marketing for Lync
Every day I come across stories of how organizations use Lync to connect people. I recently discovered how one hospital, Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, is using Lync to enhance the patient experience by connecting them to their families when they’re apart. This is a great example of the experiences and moments that Microsoft technology enables, and it also illustrates how we are delivering on our vision of Universal Communications in a way that everyone can understand.

This story is just one of many real-world examples of how Lync is making a difference. Our customers are using Lync daily to transform and enhance their work, and the industry is recognizing this. To give you an idea of how Lync is being recognized, I want to share with you some recent findings from industry experts who follow the enterprise communications industry and Lync specifically.
