Management consulting firm picks Office 365 at...

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Gordon Loeb, chief operating officer at Loeb Consulting Group.

Loeb Consulting Group grew out of my wife Natalie’s expertise and passion about helping people reach their potential at work. It all started about 17 years ago, when Natalie began consulting for the law firm where she had worked as a training manager designing professional development programs. Her drive to help people achieve as much as they can in the workplace and enjoy what they do is responsible for the growth of her consulting business.

I joined her full-time about two and a half years ago, and today, with four employees and 25 consultants working across the United States and in the United Kingdom, Loeb Consulting Group has reached a juncture in its evolution. At this critical moment, it’s essential for us to look professional and to have sound business...

Skype for Business Windows Phone app is here!

It’s an exciting time for Skype for Business as we deliver communication-powered productivity in Office. In the last few months, we’ve delivered the Skype for Business client for Windows, the new Skype for Business Server, and Skype for Business Online in Office 365. And just last week, we announced previews of new meetings and voice capabilities in Office 365 through the Skype for Business Preview Program.

Today we’re pleased to announce the availability of the Skype for Business app for Windows Phone.

What’s new—intuitive interface, more emoticons, improved server communications

Document font embedding demystified

For many years, Office on Windows has offered users the ability to embed fonts within electronic documents such as Word documents or PDF files. However, we often get questions about the font embedding feature and today are providing you with details on what font embedding is and how you can use in your electronic documents.

Put simply, font embedding is taking a digital font file and including it within another digital file. Usually when people refer to font embedding they are talking about document font embedding. Document font embedding ensures that the recipient of a document can view it properly even if they don’t have the fonts you used to create it installed on their machine.

How to take advantage font embedding

Font embedding settings are usually included as an advanced option under the document “Save” or “Export” menus of Word, PowerPoint and Publisher and can be enabled by selecting the Embed fonts in the file checkbox.

Bypass the Application Downloaded From the Internet...

___ “is an application downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?” is a warning dialog that appears when you open an application that you downloaded from the Internet. When you install those software titles with automation, you can clear the attribute that causes the prompt, so you don’t get a lot of confusion from end users. TO do so, use the xattr command, using -d to delete the com.apple.quarantine attribute. Here, we’re going to do so recursively, using the -r option and finally defining the application:

Unix Signals

When you run a kill command to stop a process from bash or the javax.realtime.POSIXSignalHandler class, you’re sending what’s known as a POSIX signal to the process. These signals can be called via their numeric representations or the signal (e.g. with the -s option of the kill command). Signals include the following:

  • 1: SIGHUP – Close the controlling terminal when the controlling process dies
  • 2: SIGINT – Send a keyboard interrupt
  • 3: SIGQUIT – Quit from a keyboard/terminal
  • 4: SIGILL – Terminate illegal instruction with a core dump and don’t restart
  • 5: SIGTRAP – Send a trace/break trap (with core dump)
  • 6: SIGABRT – Process an abort signal
  • 7: SIGEMT – Send the signal when emulator traps happen
  • 8:SIGFPE – Terminate floating point errors (erroneous arithmetic operations) with a core dump
  • 9: SIGKILL – Kill a signal outright (kill cannot be ignored)
  • 10: SIGBUS – Terminate access (some portion of...

Bash: A Silly wc Example

The wc command is used to count words, characters and lines. Here, we’ll run it a few different ways. -l shows the number of lines in a file. For example, in my home directory, I can use it to see how many lines are in my .gitconfig file:

wc -l .gitconfig

This would output something like the following:

11 .gitconfig

Or count the number of characters with -c:

wc -c .gitconfig

Or check the number of words:

wc -w .gitconfig

You can also run it against multiple files. For example, here I’ll check the number of lines in both my .gitconfig file and my .gitignore_global files:

wc -l .gitconfig .gitignore_global

Let’s say I have a list of numbers and I want to take an average of them. I can use this to quickly figure out how many numbers I have (and so will divide by) before tallying them up.

Statistical Models and Same Sex Marriage

As you’ve likely heard, if you live in the United States (and possibly elsewhere), same sex marriage has now been legalized. And it’s legal in Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, Denmark, France, Brazil, Uruguay, New Zealand, Britain, Luxembourg, Finland and Ireland already. The trend to legalize same sex marriage started in 2001. And it’s been gaining popularity. At some point, it’s likely that same sex marriage will be universally legal. But when?

 

Let’s ask Excel, using polynomial trendlines. To get started, let’s look at how many countries have legalized same sex marriage. The below spreadsheet lays out how many countries have legalized same sex marriage to date, and when.

To then see a trend line, we’ll add a chart element, selecting Add Chart Element and then select...

Announcing compliance toolset for public folders

Office 365 offers a comprehensive compliance toolset that spans Exchange email, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business documents, and Skype conversations. Some customers store valuable information in Exchange public folders, and have requested that we broaden Office 365’s compliance solution to cover public folder data as well. Previously, external archiving solutions were required to meet this need.

Today, we are pleased to announce that the Office 365 archiving and eDiscovery toolset is being extended to include public folders. Customers can now place public folder content on hold to preserve it for legal or regulatory requirements. They can perform eDiscovery functions on public folder data, including search, preview and export. Entire public folders or specific content (based on keywords) can be preserved immutably. They can delete aged items out of public folders. And all administrative activities on public folders are fully audited. Throughout all these operations, users...

Compliance is no longer about email alone. It has extended into realms that include social media, instant messaging, and collaboration platforms, to name just a few. In just a few years, these communication channels have become so prevalent that entire industries have spun up around them. Governance and regulatory policies have been updated to reflect the growing influence of these new mediums. When thinking of compliance, organizations must now account for all of these new communication tools that are frequently used by their employees.

Today, Office 365 helps customers stay compliant with an archiving solution that covers email, documents in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, and Skype for Business meetings and conversations. But, our customers require and have asked for more—they want Office 365 to provide the same rich archiving capabilities over non-Microsoft data sources, such as social and messaging data, as well.

The website is focused on simple scenarios that are focused entirely for Office 365 administration.

Learning PowerShell for Office 365 makes the job of IT admins easier and more efficient. For example, say your company goes through a large reorganization where departments change names and move to different management. If you are dealing with a few changes and a few people, the Office 365 Admin Center can quickly be used to make the changes. However, consider the task at hand if the changes involved hundreds or even a thousand users. While the Office 365 Admin Center is more than capable of making all the changes, the amount of work and the...

Students are pushed outside their comfort zones, confidence is being instilled, valuable 21st century communication skills are learned in a collaborative work environment. Deep, powerful learning is taking place.

Mystery Skype can bring this atmosphere to the classroom—a classroom that can include any age group, culture, race and country across the world.

Office 365 users gain one-click access to third-...

Back in October 2014, we announced release of the Office 365 app launcher and My Apps—places where you can organize and personalize your list of first-party services accessible in Office 365.

This week, we’ve started deploying an Office 365 Store to make third-party solutions manageable in the same way, where external web applications can be launched with a single click—all within the Office 365 experience and with no admin configuration or additional sign in steps.

Rolling out to Office 365 customers in the First Release program, the Office 365 Store is accessible through an icon in the app launcher “waffle” in the top navigation bar (see below).

Clicking the icon takes you to a special version of the Office 365 Store, in...

Bringing Sway apps to more platforms and devices

When we launched Sway Preview, our first priority was ensuring anybody could use the rich Sway web experience in any modern browser, regardless of whether you’re on a PC, Mac or tablet. That way, the broadest amount of people could use Sway to quickly create and share polished, interactive reports, presentations, personal stories and more.

Every day, people also use native apps to get stuff done on their tablets, phones and other devices. Office has spent the last year bringing productivity applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote to all major devices and platforms. Sway for iPhone is already available, and we’ve heard your feedback loud and clear that you’re eager for Sway apps on more devices and platforms. So today, we’re excited to share more news and a...

Todays’ post was written by Vijay Kumar, the senior product marketing manager for Office 365 Security.

If you’ve been following the From Inside the Cloud video series, you know we regularly bring you an insider’s view from the people who design, build and manage security, privacy and compliance in Office 365.

We recorded several sessions, which are now available for you to view on the Office 365 Trust Center:

Office Online makes formatting easy

Document imperfections can be distracting. Rather than producing more new content, you might spend time fixing a typo, correcting a formatting error, or moving a graphic. Over the next few weeks, Office Online is rolling out updates to eliminate these distractions to keep you focused on what matters.

Watch this short video to see all the new features:

Text formatting

Office Online is releasing new autocorrect features. The first implementation will make straightforward changes such as capitalizing the first letter of a sentence. In the coming weeks, you will see more advanced automatic formatting such as transforming two hyphens into a dash—just like you’d expect in Word.

Word Online is also adding the Format Painter, a popular office tool that can streamline document design. Format Painter allows you to copy formatting from the selected content (Ctrl + Shift + C) and paste it onto a different set of content (Ctrl + Shift + V).
