A new Skype for Business look for Lync Room System...

In March 2015, we announced that Microsoft Lync has been rebranded as Skype for Business, bringing the familiar and well-loved Skype experience to the workplace, combined with the trusted enterprise-grade Lync platform.
We are happy to announce that Lync Rooms Systems will be updated with the Skype for Business experience. On November 10, we are rolling out a Cumulative Update to all existing Crestron, Polycom and SMART Lync Room Systems, updating the user interface (UI) and branding to Skype for Business. The Cumulative Update will either be applied automatically, or manually, depending on the policy set by the IT admin. The update does not change the functionality, but users will see a sleeker, darker design theme, attuned to large-screen viewing.
Let’s take a look at the new user interface.
The image below shows the pre-meeting calendar UI on the console. The console, positioned at the center of the meeting room table, is used to control the meeting room... | Read more »

At the “Rename device” screen, enter a new name for the device and click on Rename.

Alternatively, you can use the (+) menu to choose variables to use during the renaming process. Here, you can choose to base a name on a Serial number, the Number, the device Type, or the Capacity of the device.

Copy Big Update Files Between Apple Configurator 2...

One of the things that is awesome and sometimes frustrating about Apple Configurator is that when you do certain tasks, you end up updating the OS on devices. The reason this is awesome is that it allows you to centralize operations. The reason this can be frustrating is that if you’re on a limited bandwidth connection, you may find that you can’t do very basic tasks before downloading a large OS update. And if you’ve got a bunch of Apple Configurator workstations, and you are running a training session, this can get infinitely more annoying.
In these types of lab environments, you’re in luck. If you have an ipsw (the iOS OS update file), you can copy the file from ~/Library/Group\ Containers/ onto another machine. To copy them onto a USB drive called bananarama for example, use the following command:
cp -R ~/Library/Library/Group\ Containers/ | Read more »

Email archiving—5 reasons why this is the best ema...

Whether you work in the corporate world or not, you probably send and receive multiple emails every day. It’s a fast, convenient way to communicate with peers, colleagues, clients, friends and family. Of course, email is an extremely popular communication tool for companies—in part because of its ability to document conversations and serve as a searchable repository of information.
In fact, studies suggest that three-fourths of an organization’s intellectual property is contained within email and messaging systems. That means it’s important to protect this data and not just send it to the trash. But keeping that much information can overload your company’s storage servers.
So what’s the best solution?
Email archiving is nothing new. The tool has been around for years—so why don’t more companies use it? Here are five benefits to using an email archiving... | Read more »

Set Device Wallpaper Using Apple Configurator 2 On...

You can set a wallpaper on both the home screen and lock screen of a supervised iOS device. As mentioned, the device will need to be supervised. Supervision can be implemented via Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP for short), but DEP will require MDM to implement supervision, and with a device enrolled and supervised via MDM, you’ll need to use the MDM to set the wallpaper. You can also use Apple Configurator 2.
To use Apple Configurator 2 to set a wallpaper on a supervised iPhone or iPad, first save the image or images lo call on an iOS device. Once saved to the Apple Configurator machine, open Apple Configurator 2 and plug a device in.

Then right-click on the device, choose the Modify menu and then Wallpapers… from the Modify menu.

Enable Device Supervision On iOS Devices Using App...

When a DEP device is setup, the device is supervised. By supervising a device, in Apple wisdom, ownership by the organization is proven and so additional options for limiting what a device can do. For example, supervised iOS devices that are enrolled in an MDM solution by a DEP portal cannot then be unenrolled. Supervision also allows an MDM to escrow a key that can be used to unlock a device locked by Activation Lock. And there are plenty of restrictions and other management options that Apple makes available on a device owned by an organization rather than an individual. It’s understandable given the massive consumer market served and the desire to preserve a fantastic user experience on devices.
If you purchased iOS devices before DEP was available, then you can still enable supervision on those devices. To do so, we’ll use Apple Configurator 2. Before you do anything, know that this process will wipe a device and reactivate the device. There are a number of reasons for... | Read more »

If you are an Office 365 administrator, there are a number of new tools, reports and resources coming to help save you time when managing Office 365.

Install Apps On The 4th Generation Apple TV

The most substantial part of the update to the 4th generation of the Apple TV is the addition of an App Store. Awesome! There are a nice number of apps so far. Not too many, just yet. Let’s look at installing an app. To do so, start your Apple TV and from the home screen, click on the App Store icon.

From the App Store, search for an app and click on it. If you like the screenshots, click on the Get button (it’s a free app so it says Get).

Once installed, click on Open.

The app opens. Yay. Very easy.

Automate MDM Enrollment Using Apple Configurator 2

I’ve written a number of articles on automating MDM enrollments using Apple Configurator in the past. In Apple Configurator 2, there are some new options that make the process much easier than it’s ever been in the past. To get started, let’s open Apple Configurator 2 and click on a Blueprint we’d like to apply to devices being prepared during a mass iPad or iPhone enrollment through Apple Configurator. Control-click on the Blueprint to set up for automated enrollment and click on the Prepare button.

At the Organization screen, select the organization you’d like to enroll your device in and click on the Next button.

At the Server screen, select to enroll in an MDM server.

What’s new: October 2015

The Office 2016 launch in September was followed by a steady stream of improvements in October. The Skype for Business iOS app is here, and the preview of the new Skype for Business voice and meeting capabilities is now more widely available. FastTrack evolved from an onboarding service to a customer success service to help you realize business value faster with the Microsoft Cloud. Compliance updates include enhanced service organization controls (SOC) audit reports and the launch of local datacenters in India. OneNote inking is better than ever, Sway and Office Lens got enhancements and mobile updates, and the new Office was updated as well. For developers, there’s new on-demand video training, updates from the PnP team and more.

Leave us a comment to let us know what your favorite new feature is. If you missed last month’s updates, see What’s new: September 2015.

Take Screenshots On The 4th Generation Apple TV

The new Apple TV has a USB-C port. It’s got some great uses. One of which is that you can use it to take screenshots through Xcode. To do so, you’ll either need a USB-C MacBook or a USB-C to USB adapter. Once you’ve plugged your computer into the back of the Apple TV, open Xcode and choose Devices from the Window menu at the top of the screen.

From Devices, click on your new 4th Generation Apple TV. You’ll then be greeted by a Take Screenshot button. Click on it.

You should then see the screen from your Apple TV. Now, good luck with that pose… Now that I can take a proper screenshot of an Apple TV I’ll have to meditate on whether or not I’ll someday write a book on the darned things…

Configure The New Apple TV 4

The new fourth generation Apple TV is everything I hoped the third generation would be. We have a touch remote with a Mic, great video, USB-C, and most importantly, an App Store! And while I have security concerns around the setup process, I am sure Apple has thought through the myriad of questions I have surrounding sharing Apple ID keys over bluetooth from a phone to the Apple TV to streamline the setup process. So about that setup process. Configuring the new Apple TV is pretty straight forward. To get started, get your phone out. Yes, your phone. Then unwrap the Apple TV and plug it into the HDMI port on your TV and the AC adapter (which is the same as the second and third generation Apple TVs).

Once plugged in, boot up your Apple TV. When prompted, click Set Up with Device on the fancy  new remote.
