What’s New: September 2014

The Office 365 experience is evolving. With the new Office 365 homepage, custom themes, Groups in Office 365, and Delve, Office 365 is making it simpler for you to personalize Office 365, get started working with your colleagues, communicate, and find the most relevant information for you. OneNote continues to release updates across platforms and welcomes Android Wear to the OneNote family. Developers also get a new SDK for OneDrive and a new open source API so you can start contributing and make it better for everyone. 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: August 2014.

Getting Into Developer Mode On A Samsung Chromebo...

To properly go under the hood and hack around on a Samsung Chromebook 2, you’ll need to put it into developer mode. Whether using crosh or installing Chromium or other operating systems or just doing some pretty cool stuff, you’ll need to throw the thing into developer mode. Because you have so much control you should leave developer mode off when you’re not hacking around for security purposes.
Note: Before you switch back and forth, know that user accounts will be reset each time you switch.
Now, to enter developer mode, we’ll first go into recovery mode, using the Escape (ESC) and Refresh (F3) buttons on the keyboard when you press the Power button. When the Recovery screen comes up, use Ctrl-D to switch to developer mode and then when prompted, confirm and the device will reboot into developer mode (or dev-mode for the geeky). When you see the boot screen, wait 30 seconds to boot or just hit Control-D.

It’s no secret that for small businesses, the right technology can mean the difference between merely surviving and fully thriving. Office 365 is transformational for businesses of all sizes, but levels the playing field for small and midsized businesses (SMBs) in particular because it makes enterprise-grade tools affordable and easy to set up and manage.
We are excited today to announce the availability of three new Office 365 plans designed to meet the needs of SMBs with up to approximately 250 employees. The new Office 365 plans, which we originally announced earlier this year, provide even more flexibility and value to SMBs.
The new Office 365 plans for SMBs are:

  • Office 365 Business: The full Office applications—Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Publisher and OneDrive for Business cloud storage, which makes it... | Read more »

The Modern Workplace series debuts live October 7t...

Throw away the roadmaps.
Inventors have a lot to teach us about perspective. Not confined to the “rules” of business, they are free to go back to basics and create new approaches to big problems. Today’s most successful entrepreneurs and industry leaders are taking the same approach. True innovators are willing to look at their problems from new angles, invest in new ideas, fail, and learn from their mistakes.
One place where they don’t take a risk: grounding their business in the right technology to fuel their creativity. Innovators count on Office 365 to help them get their work done and stay ahead of the curve, anywhere and anytime they may be formulating and refining ideas. Office 365 also enables them to collaborate successfully and spontaneously from different locations and different time zones, even different continents.

Announcing Chegg Study + OneNote for students to g...

Chegg the Student Hub, is all about making 13 million high school and university students more successful in their classes through partnerships and offering tools to make learning easier, more accessible and more productive. It is only natural that OneNote becomes the one place for Chegg students to take and organize all their class notes and study guides, accessible on any device they are carrying in their backpack or pocket. That is why we are excited to announce a partnership with Chegg and their Chegg Study Q&A product.
The 2013 Chegg Homework Help survey found that 81 percent of students who used Chegg Study felt better prepared for their exams. Now, a new Clip It button, right next to any Q&A, saves all the answers into OneNote. From there, students can use OneNote to build their study guides, study with friends and take notes on-the-go.

Kennametal: manufacturing leader creates unity and...

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Steve Hanna, chief information officer at Kennametal. 
Being a CIO is about more than just achieving benchmark performance and lowest costs for technology assets. I believe it’s really about collaborating with your business leaders to drive better overall results for the company. At Kennametal, we recognize the huge impact it makes on getting those results if we have the right people onboard, particularly when they work together.
But with nearly 14,000 employees in more than 60 countries, it can be challenging to find and connect the individuals who have the experience and insight needed in a given situation. We do our best to bring colleagues face to face when they’re working together on big projects and initiatives, but it isn’t always feasible to take people away from their families... | Read more »

Announcing Office Sway: reimagine how your ideas c...

Today we’re introducing a brand new app to the Office portfolio. Say hello to Sway! Sway is an entirely different way to express yourself and bring your ideas to life. When your ideas are born, you want to explore, visualize and share them—quickly and easily, wherever you happen to be, and on whatever device you have. You want your ideas to be understood. Sway helps you do just that. It’s a new way for you to create a beautiful, interactive, web-based expression of your ideas, from your phone or browser. It is easy to share your creation and it looks great on any screen. Your ideas have no borders, edges, page breaks, cells or slides. Your mind is a continuous canvas, and Sway brings this canvas to life. Sway helps you focus on the human part: your ideas and how they relate to each other. Sway takes care of the design work—a Sway is ready to share with the world as soon as it is born.  With today’s announcement and Sway Preview, we are just starting our journey with Sway... | Read more »

When Product Management Meets Social Justice

In technology, we often find a lot of cool stuff that, as developers, engineers and yes, even product managers, we think is just plain cool. In agile development, we create epics, where we lay out customer stories and tie them into a set of features; however, while we’re working towards our goals we often find those technical places where we discover we can do something super cool. And we sometimes want to weave those into our stories as features in products simply because we want to make stuff that we’re technically proud of. But should we?
Too often we don’t consider what the social ramifications are to features. Time and time again we hear stories of what seemed like a cool feature that got abused. When we’re creating software, we think of the art. We want to change the world after reading too much Guy Kawasaki. We want to build sometimes just for the sake of building. And sometimes we come to a place where we think we just have to add something into a product. Then we... | Read more »

Visio webcast on October 7: Leveraging Visio—Hyper...

Two of the most significant techniques to enhance the value of a Microsoft Visio diagram are to incorporate data and to create hyperlinks to external locations.
This session is a deep dive into hyperlinking and will demonstrate some of the more subtle but incredibly useful features of Visio hyperlinking. Not only will you learn how to link a Visio shape to a Word document, you will also learn how to build a link that takes the reader to a specific word or phrase in that document. You’ll learn similar tricks for Excel and PowerPoint, as well as how to create hyperlinks that automatically generate a pre-addressed email message.
You will also learn how to leverage the data in your diagrams by creating and running reports. In the final segment you will learn multiple techniques for sharing your Visio diagrams with people who don’t have Visio.
Presented by Scott Helmers, MVP, Harvard Computing Group.

Introducing the Enterprise Social Resource Center

It’s no secret that social networking has fundamentally changed the way we connect and communicate in our personal lives. Now, social is transforming the way we work by enabling businesses to tap into the power of human networks.
Earlier this year, we shared our vision for the future of work: to empower companies to work like a network. To build on this vision, we’re excited to announce the launch of the Enterprise Social Resource Center, a library of educational resources designed to help business leaders and decision makers better understand the value of enterprise social. Bringing together white papers, e-books, infographics, customer success stories—and lots more—into a single location, the Enterprise Social Resource Center is a... | Read more »

OneNote lends a helping hand

Today’s post about OneNote was written by Jean White, who collaborated with Steven Luker to share his story. 
Steven Luker is an avid OneNote user. At first glance, though, his situation might seem very different from most people. Because of cerebral palsy, he uses a wheelchair, is non-verbal and has full use of only one arm.
When Steven shared with us how he uses technology to solve a lot of the problems he deals with, something became evident: Steven is a lot like everyone else. He’s a busy guy, juggling home life, a startup and involvement his church and in the tech community—and he needs a way to keep track of everything. He found a way to use OneNote to support him and his tricks can help you too.
OneNote is the quickest way for Steven to make notes that he can easily retrieve from his computer, iPad, a web browser or his Windows Phone. Notes are also a great way for him to communicate with people. He can type up notes ahead of time—like a... | Read more »

Accelerate your Office 365 adoption: Microsoft int...

Jared Spataro is the general manager of Enterprise Social at Microsoft.
Today, I’m excited to announce the launch of the Office 365 Customer Success Center, a new website designed to help customers drive adoption and business value.  This new resource is targeted at what we call “Office 365 Champions” and I wanted to provide some additional context on why I think this is an exciting milestone for Office 365.

Getting the most out of Office 365
I love to hear how customers are using Office 365 to change the way they do business, but if you’ve worked with new technologies before, you know that a real success story takes more than just making the tools available. To really get the most out of an investment in a new technology, you have to help people understand what they can do with it.  And that’... | Read more »

New version of Lync SDN interface now available

Today’s post was written by Jamie Stark, project manager on the Lync Team.
It’s been just a few months since were at TechEd talking about how Unified Communications (UC) can take advantage of Software Defined Networking (SDN). Since then the industry hasn’t stopped talking about the utility of UC SDN across different scenarios, from diagnosing where media issues happen in the network to automating Quality of Service (QoS).
In the meantime, we’ve been hard at work across three paths.  First, we have a growing list of partners working to integrate, test and qualify with the Lync Server SDN interface—most recently being Meru Networks and Extreme Networks.  These partners are joining... | Read more »
