What’s Coming Next, From The WWDC Keynote

Posted a Huffington Post article from my notes from the WWDC keynote. Hope you enjoy!
Apple kicked off WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) today, with a Keynote that showcased some of the upper tier of talent and management within Apple. As a former WWDC speaker, I watch the keynote and most sessions through the remainder of the week religiously. Here, you see what’s coming in the fall releases of the four operating systems: macOS, watchOS, iOS, and tvOS (for Macs, Apple Watches, iPhones and iPads, and Apple TVs respectively).

To read the rest of the article, click here to jump to Huffington Post.

PS: macOS autocorrects to tacos. Mmmmm, tacos…

The Deferred Channel June updates for the Office 3...

The June Office 365 client update (version 1602) includes a number of new features and capabilities for those receiving updates from the Deferred Channel. As you might recall from a previous post, the Deferred Channel allows organizations to choose an update schedule that reduces the frequency of feature changes for the Windows desktop apps, enabling IT admins and developers to have more time between releases to validate Office against their line-of-business applications, add-ins and macros. New features are available in the Deferred Channel three times per year, on “Patch Tuesday,” in February, June and October.
For information on the updates available in this month’s Deferred Channel, visit the Office 365 client release notes. In addition, the existing Office... | Read more »

The future of video conferencing—3 trends breathin...

For decades, video conferencing has been a nice-to-have feature for most businesses, but not a necessity. Thanks to advances in both hardware and software—as well as the growing demand for visual communications among millennials in the workforce—that’s all about to change.
Despite the decrease in bandwidth costs, both hardware and software continue to improve video quality while using better compression methods that eat up even less bandwidth. This has helped reduce the costs of video conferencing services and devices, which has led to a widespread adoption in the workplace. Today, virtual meetings can be held in large video conferencing rooms dedicated to cross-team collaboration, on mobile devices like tablets and cell phones or while simply sitting at a desk using VOIP or a conference phone.
As technology continues to improve, here are three trends to expect for the... | Read more »

Empowering attorneys and staff with Office 365 hel...

Today’s Microsoft Office 365 post was written by Judith Flournoy, chief information officer at Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, a law firm with seven offices in the United States and Europe.
The legal profession stretches all the way back to the orators of ancient Rome. The field has come a long way since then, with attorneys often working together across geographical and organizational boundaries on behalf of their clients. That idea of teamwork—collaborating with colleagues, outside consultants and even clients—needs to be at the core of what we do so that we can take advantage of areas of expertise and facilitate efficiencies.
As law firms have expanded to handle matters across the globe, they’ve needed to change the nature of collaboration, which has evolved tremendously over the last 50 years or so. For most of the history of our profession, attorneys relied on face-to-face meetings and documents shared via human messengers. The telephone and fax machine... | Read more »

Last December, we announced that Office 365 Groups are now supported by eDiscovery. Since then, we’ve delivered a number of updates to help administrators govern and manage Office 365 Groups, which provides cross-application group membership to enable teams to easily collaborate in their favorite apps.
The following capabilities are available today to all Office 365 commercial and education customers:

  • Ability to update privacy type—When you create an Office 365 group, users have two privacy options: public (anyone within your organization can access the group’s content) and private (only approved members can access the group’s content). This update enables group owners to change the privacy setting from public to private or vice versa by editing the group properties in Outlook on the web.... | Read more »

Office 365 news roundup

American author and humorist Mark Twain, a keen observer of human nature, once said: “There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.” If you belong in that first group, then Office 365 is for you. We provide the tools you need to get things done.
Earlier this week, we introduced Microsoft Planner, a new way for businesses, schools and other organizations to structure teamwork, facilitate collaboration and get more done while using visual dashboards and email notifications to keep everyone informed and up to speed. Previously available only to select business customers, Microsoft Planner is now available as a free app to all Office 365 users.

Today’s post was written by Wilj Dekkers, Year 5 teacher and e-learning coordinator St. Andrew’s College in New Zealand.
OneNote is central to the pedagogy in my classroom and school. When you walk through the building you can witness the everyday use of the application from Year 4 to Year 8. You will see Active Boards where teachers annotate writing samples in the Content Library for students to use as a reference for their own learning. Students are huddled around their laptops debating which sources of information are most relevant to include in a shared notebook, and staff are reviewing meeting notes shared through a Professional Learning Group’s OneNote.
St. Andrew’s College uses a custom designed Inquiry Pathway—the core of which is built around helping students develop a collaborative approach to learning. The approach is question-driven, encouraging students to find the answers themselves,... | Read more »

What’s new in Office 365 administration—May roundu...

The new Office 365 admin center is nearly complete. This month, we added full support for mail-enabled security groups, the ability to create custom tiles and custom help desk information and email apps management. If you notice a feature that is still missing, please let us know using the feedback link at the bottom-right of the new admin center.
Over the last few weeks, we had the opportunity to demo the new admin center and the usage reporting dashboard at Cloud Roadshow events in Sydney, Seoul, The Hague and Milan. We love attending events like the Cloud Roadshow because they allow us to meet many of you in person and put faces to the names we know from the Office 365 Yammer Network or email conversations based on your admin center feedback. They also allow us to meet new customers, have in-depth conversations about business management requirements and receive even more feedback.
