Productivity and inclusion—Office 365 accessibility...

John Jendrezak, accessibility lead and partner director of program management for the Office Engineering team.

Over the past year, hundreds of engineers from the Office 365 team have been working hard to make progress towards the plans outlined in our 2016 accessibility roadmap. Key enhancements releasing this quarter bring us closer to two goals:

  • People with disabilities can communicate, consume and create content on any device.
  • Everyone can easily create content that is accessible for all people.

As we make Office 365 accessible by design and make it easy for everyone to create accessible content, we hope that people of all abilities will feel empowered to achieve more with our productivity technologies, have equal access to digital information and have fulfilling interactions with each other.

OneNote Class and Staff Notebooks are now available...

With back-to-school season in full swing or just about to get going in many countries, it’s a good time to reflect on the excitement around OneNote Class Notebooks and Staff Notebooks. The original OneNote Class Notebook app was in preview release during the summer of 2014 and went to general availability in October of 2014. Since then, we’ve had hundreds of thousands of teachers using the app in Office 365—resulting in millions of student notebooks created. We also just released some big updates for the 2016/2017 school year. In just one...

Assurant: transforming a risk management solutions...

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Robert Lewis, chief information officer at Assurant.

From the outset, Assurant—a global provider of specialty risk management solutions—looked at Microsoft cloud technologies not so much as an IT upgrade, but as an integral component of a business transformation. We needed cloud-based business tools for employees across the United States and our international offices. With a new focus on our core competencies and drive for profitable growth in the housing and lifestyle markets, it was also important that we streamline how we work with customers.

This digital transformation of our workplace is how we meet the real-time service demands of customers for insurance and risk management products and services, where all-day, everyday service through online markets is becoming the new normal. With Office 365, plus mobility solutions like Microsoft Intune, we have the tools required to deliver a competitive level of service...

Proactive Mac Security: osquery

There are two reputations(at least) that your faithful writer is hoping to shake: #1, I do not work for Google. #2, I am not the ‘osquery guy’. I don’t even know any C++! (I’m going to make time for this eventually, though.) However, for three events over the course of three months earlier this year I was invited to talk about osquery on the Mac. For the U of Utah, while illustrating how I approached my security team with this (among other FOSS tools), I used a chestnut by a certain AFP548 alumni about the concept of ‘fences, not walls’. Don’t lock a machine down until it loses any chance of actual productivity or creative use, which ignores the fact that physical access is total access, anyway. Instead, think of your management enforcement attempts as...

Programmatically Grab The Location Of An Account

Namespace conflicts can be interesting. Especially with multiple local domains. To grab the path of a directory domain of a currently logged in user (when running as the user) using a script, you can run the following:

dscl . -read /Users/`whoami` | grep AppleMetaNodeLocation | awk '{print $2}'

You can then replace the string we’re using with grep if you’d like to pull a different attribute from the user record, you’d use the following:

dscl . -read /Users/`whoami` | grep UniqueID | awk '{print $2}'

Decompile Non-ReadOnly AppleScripts

Forgot to save the source code of those AppleScripts in a place you can find it again before you compiled? Quick and dirty, provided you didn’t save it as ReadOnly, you can grab the source of an AppleScript using osadecompile. Just feed it the app (not the applet or the main.scpt btw), as I do with /Users/charlesedge/Documents/mycompiledapp.app below:

osadecompile  /Users/charlesedge/Documents/mycompiledapp.app

Easy peasy.

Since last March, we have helped Windows users import 71 million Evernote pages to OneNote. Following the great feedback we received, we want to help even more people make the move. Today, we are launching the OneNote Importer tool for Mac. You may feel hesitant about moving all your notes from a place you know to a new online home. Don’t worry, the Importer tool makes moving day easy.

Download the OneNote Importer tool.

OneNote lets you work the way you want. You can get your ideas down in a range of ways that include typing, inking, embedding videos, recording audio or clipping web content. If you prefer to use paper and pen, you can even scan that content with OneNote to make it digital, searchable and available from your phone to your laptop. We’ve heard that many Evernote users rely heavily on their clipper. OneNote has a great clipper for all major browsers, available for free at...

Today’s post was written by Laura Stanner, Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert and technology integration consultant in Dubuque, Iowa.

When teachers and students using Office 365 Education return to school this year, they’ll be greeted with a big, fat “F” in their app launcher!

No, “F” isn’t what you think it means. “F” stands for the “fabulously fantastic” Microsoft Forms.

Microsoft Forms is one of many “welcome-back-to-school gifts” specifically focused on the needs of teachers brought to you by Microsoft engineers.

Forms—created just for teachers and students

Forms was created just for teachers and students to meet our specific needs. The Forms team welcomes honest feedback from its clients—teachers and students.

Math teachers’ summer collaboration with Office...

Today’s post was written by Cal Armstrong, Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert at Appleby College in Canada.

This year, I had the opportunity to be faculty at the Institute for Advanced Study’s Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI)—a three-week, residential program for mathematics teachers from around the world. There are three aspects to PCMI: One is discovering (new) mathematics, another is delving deeply into pedagogy and the third is becoming a resource to other teachers. It is the latter in which Office Online has made our summer work possible.

The task in the two-hour afternoon sessions is to develop a resource not for you, but for others. This often takes the form of a professional development seminar, a task collection on a particular theme (i.e., “low floor, high ceiling”) or a rubric or framework for teacher learning.

Now, all that seems pretty manageable. But the teachers are from all over. They don’t know one another. They have different...

King’s Schools journey with Sway

Today’s post was written by David Harcrow, academic technology coordinator at King’s Schools in Shoreline, Washington.

I started teaching elementary school in 1998. Back then, technology was really limited to word processing, some PowerPoint and really slow internet—especially at our school. Back then, I was not really involved in using technology in the classroom simply because it seemed very inefficient and lacked a lot of exciting programs for students to use for learning.

As the years went on, technology started to improve, the internet became faster and new programs started to emerge. About six years into my teaching career, I started to see lots of new programs that could impact student learning. Our internet speed started to improve, and programs like Google Earth and YouTube started to present the ability to access content that could be displayed for all students to engage with and share. Still, at that time, projectors weighed 60 pounds and were...

Proactive Mac Security, Introduction

Let’s say your company is a place where no one works day-to-day logged in as an admin on their Mac. Everybody in this environment is also a computer expert, and therefore aren’t as prone to tomfoolery such as letting family members use their login to play Chrome games, and of course they don’t go to ahem riskier parts of the internet while using the computer their employer provided for them. Workflows for where to store data are well-defined, all generic (non-private) actions are logged and collected, and data that requires local storage is backed up efficiently. Computer management, from patches to configurations, is curated by their loyal sysadmin who follows the same practices as they expect their customers to use. Management is applied efficiently, over secure channels, and logical compromises allow flexibility when the computers leave known-good networks. (And no network is ever required to be trusted for safe operation – of course.)

Some Reasons Not To Pay Down Tech Debt

Every development organization has tech debt. Modern development projects have gotten so large and complex that there are now dozens of libraries, frameworks, and services implemented in a modern solution. Additionally, there are always new techniques, new modules, new frameworks, new skills, and new perspectives. Applications are now ecosystems, constantly evolving, and our perspectives about them must evolve as well.

Yes, a burn down chart looks better when you pay down the debt. Yes, security flaws can force you to pay down technical debt. Yes, most developers always want to fix all the things, including impending dead technology. Modern solutions have many stakeholders. The modern roadmap has to include benefits for existing customers, senior management, the people you send into the field, and net-new customers, coming in based on new features that need to get implemented.

You can’t implement new features that help to retain customers and acquire new customers if...

People are increasingly using apps for work on their personal mobile devices. This is especially true of “deskless” workers—employees who spend most of their work day away from a desk—in industries like retail, manufacturing, healthcare, airlines and consulting. In the case of Yammer’s customers, an employee might use the Yammer mobile app to help customers in-store or share customer feedback with colleagues. In other scenarios, employees might access Yammer when they are in transit or working remotely.

This trend of using personal mobile devices for work presents a challenge for IT departments that want to ensure the security of company data, especially those concerned about unintentional data leaks.

Letting Go Of Old Tech

We’ve all got a box sitting around somewhere, full of cables and devices that used to blink away at us until we snuffed the life out of it all by replacing it. Some of us have 10 of those, full of tangled cables that maybe went to that one camera that we lost in 2009. Many of us remember the exact price we paid for each device in those boxes, such as that $699.99 firewall. It can be challenging to replace that device with one that costs 10% of that price, even though it’s more than ample to meet our needs. And we have a hard time imagining that after only using the thing for 6 years that it’s now out-of-date. After all, don’t I still have that one sweater I bought during my freshman year of college? Won’t I need that laptop I replaced 3 years ago?

Chances are that you should burn that sweater and send the firewall and old laptop off for recycling. Of course, always make sure that you won’t be losing some data and have a backup of anything you’re getting rid of (that stored...

Carvajal switches to Office 365 for faster business...

Today’s Microsoft Office 365 post was written by Jaime Parra Mutis, corporate IT director at Carvajal.

Keep business information both accessible and safe—a challenge in any scenario, but especially difficult when you operate myriad business divisions in 15 countries. That’s what we face at Carvajal, where our divisions produce everything from office furniture and educational software to commercial printing and packaging. We also strive to make our large, diverse company operate as a cohesive organization. It can be tough to coordinate meetings and collaborate among 20,000 employees in so many different divisions dispersed throughout South and North America.

A few years ago, we decided to standardize our technology environment to make it easier to reach across geographic and divisional borders and unite our workforce. For example, we needed to consolidate all the different communications systems we’d been supporting and establish a more stable email...

But what if we add technology to collaborate across grade levels or even to other schools? As a school district with Office 365 it is pretty easy to do. In my school, we are fortunate to be a school where each student receives a district-issued laptop for the school year. The fact that we have technology at our fingertips makes this technology collaboration easier. We utilize Skype for communications with another school, take notes in OneNote class notebooks, make videos or use Sway and PowerPoint...

Office 365 news roundup

Security and productivity are top priorities for every person, business and organization that uses Office 365. Yet, finding the right balance between the two—one that provides maximum security without compromising productivity and vice versa—can be a challenge. At Microsoft, we are committed to helping you achieve and maintain that balance.

We recently announced that we are extending Azure Rights Management to the Word, Excel and PowerPoint mobile apps for Android, providing full Office Mobile support for information rights management (IRM). As a result, you can now open, read and review rights-protected emails and Office documents on any device—whether it runs Windows, Mac, iOS or Android. We are also working on new features and enhancements to make IRM even better for Office 365 subscribers in the future.

We are excited to announce the launch of the new OneNote Staff Notebook API for Office 365! Since the launch of OneNote Staff Notebooks last year, the only way to create staff notebooks was through the OneNote Staff Notebook app. Thanks to all the feedback we’ve received from school leaders, teachers and IT admins, we made it possible to now create OneNote staff notebooks programmatically as well. What this means is that IT admins, Microsoft Education partners and others can automate the creation and updates of OneNote staff notebooks across a school or district. This allows for large time savings and efficiency for teachers, as well as school IT staff. Read the MSDN article on the OneNote Staff Notebook API for in-depth instructions.

Improve compliance with Office 365 E5 plan

Organizations own the data they keep in the cloud and they need to know how it is being handled at all times.

Microsoft is the industry leader in cloud compliance for enterprise customers. With the Office 365 E5 plan, advanced compliance is integrated into the service, so organizations can meet their unique requirements using a single cloud service.

Microsoft recognizes that organizations want control over access to content stored in cloud services. To maximize data security and privacy for Office 365 customers, Microsoft has engineered the service to require nearly zero interaction with customer content by Microsoft employees. Access is obtained through a rigorous access control technology called Customer Lockbox for Office 365, which helps you meet compliance obligations for explicit data access authorization. In the rare instance when a Microsoft service engineer needs access to your data, access control is extended to you so that you grant final approval for...

Stay safe in the cloud with Office 365 E5 plan

When data is in the cloud, organizations need a trusted partner to help defend against potential attacks. Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise E5 plan—with Advanced Threat Protection and Advanced Security Management—helps protect data and users from malware and detect anomalies, so IT can quickly respond to potential attacks.

  • Safe Links—Provides real-time, time-of-click protection against malicious URLs by wrapping external links in special URLs that check the destination URL for threats before opening them.
