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.
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 »
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 »

Troubleshooting push notification communications between OS X Server and Apple’s Push Notification can be a challenge. Especially with Profile Manager. One great tip I’ve learned over the years is that the APNS daemon, apsd, has a debug mode. To enable APNS debug logging, run these commands:
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.apsd APSLogLevel -int 7
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.apsd APSWriteLogs -bool TRUE
Then use tail -f to watch the apsd.log file at /Library/Logs/apsd.log. Be wary, as this can fill up your system. So to disable, use these commands:
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.apsd APSWriteLogs -bool FALSE
defaults delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.apsd APSLogLevel
