Outlook.com now supports sharing your larger files...

Earlier this month, Microsoft announced that OneDrive now supports up to 10 GB files. With OneDrive built right into Outlook.com, you can take full advantage of this by storing your large photos, documents and videos in OneDrive, and then share them securely with Outlook.com using the Share from OneDrive feature.
Sending large files as email attachments has always been tricky: They can take a long time to upload and send, and may bounce back, never reaching the recipient. We had this in mind when we created the Share from OneDrive feature—we wanted to provide customers with a way to easily avoid these problems, while still being able to share their files. With the increase in OneDrive file size limits, you can now use this feature to easily share your larger files over email without having to worry about typical attachment problems.
You can learn how to share... | Read more »

Improved spell check for PowerPoint Online

With the new school year underway, the PowerPoint Online team has been working hard to create features to help you ace all of your presentations. We know there is nothing worse than finding a misspelling on your slide when you are the middle of a presentation—especially when the presentation is 20 percent of your final grade. To help you avoid this situation and deliver great, error-free, presentations we added spell check to the PowerPoint Online editor. We previously utilized the browser spell check for PowerPoint Online, but we switched to the high quality Office spell checker. When you are editing text in PowerPoint Online, misspelled words are flagged with a red underline, so you can correct them before you finalize your presentation.

You can try out spell check right now by going to Office.com and selecting... | Read more »

6 cool ways to use Custom Maps

Today’s post was written by James Marshall, a developer on the Excel Power Map team.
If you haven’t noticed, Excel Power Map got a whole lot richer in September with the introduction of a new feature called Custom Maps. This feature allows you to create amazing 3-D visualizations that showcase your data on top of any map image … literally. To prove this point, we’d like to show you six different ways that you can use Custom Maps to visualize your data in new and creative ways. Check out the video to see these suggestions in action.

Hiking map
The first example in the video shows how you can plot geographical data on a USGS Historical Topographic Map. The map shows the GPS coordinates from a hiking trip up Mount Pilchuck in Washington.  Further analysis could be done on the data,... | Read more »

Introducing OneNote class notebooks—a flexible dig...

“OneNote is so much more than a piece of software, it is a framework for teaching and learning.”
—Rob Baker, director of technology, Cincinnati Country Day School
We’ve been tremendously proud over the years to see OneNote helping teachers revolutionize learning in their classrooms.
Across the country and around the world, we’ve seen many classrooms innovating with OneNote to power 21st century digital learning experiences by:

  • Empowering students to take visual notes with ease—place images, text, printouts, tables, ink, screenshots and files in OneNote’s “anything, anywhere” freeform canvas.
  • Eliminating paper by replacing printouts on paper with printouts to OneNote.
  • Combining OneNote with the creative power of... | Read more »

Account Management Using The jamf Binary

The jamf binary comes with a lot of cool little features that you can use to script things quickly, because JAMF has already built things to help you. We’ll look at two really quick. The first is the deleteAccount verb which, surprisingly, deletes accounts. With that verb, you’ll use the -username operator to define a given user that you’d like to remove. That username is defined as the short name (or what dscl shows) of a given user. For example, if I wanted to remove the user rorygilmore, I’d run the following command:
/usr/sbin/jamf deleteAccount -username rorygilmore
You can then provide a popup on the screen that you completed that action:
/usr/sbin/jamf displayMessage -message “rorygilmore has been deleted"
You can then add a new user, using the createAccount verb. To do so, run the jamf binary using the createAccount verb. This verb provides for a number of options, including a short name (-username), a full name (-realname), a password (-password), a... | Read more »

Shobhit Sahay is a technical product manager on the Office 365 team.
Back in February, we launched Office 365 Message Encryption, the all-new encryption service that allows you to send encrypted mail to anyone. We’ve come a long way since that announcement.
