Change The Default Duration Of Calendar Events

I’ve been on a quest to have less meetings in this world. But since that doesn’t seem likely, I’m settling on shorter, more specific meetings. One of the ways I’ve been trying to achieve this is to send a key called “Default duration in minutes for new event” into com.apple.iCal with an integer. In this case, I’m going to reduce my default meeting times to 15 minutes.

defaults write com.apple.iCal 'Default duration in minutes for new event' 15

And viola, just like that I get to have less time spent in meetings! Note that this doesn’t change the default time of Quick Events.

Office 365 news roundup

There is no such thing as a typical Office user. More than 1.2 billion people in 140 countries now use Office. They speak 107 languages and they differ widely in education, income, occupation and ability. As a result, Office 365 has to be much more than a one-size-fits-all productivity solution. It must meet the needs of all users, and we’re committed to making sure it does.

As part of our ongoing effort to meet the communication, collaboration and other productivity needs of every subscriber, we are continuing to make regular updates and improvements to Office 365. As an example, recent enhancements to Office 365 have brought us...

App Store Improvements

We love helping customers discover innovative, useful, and exciting apps on the App Store. With more than 2 million apps available and around 100,000 new and updated apps submitted each week, there’s something for everyone. To make it easier for customers to find great apps that fit their needs, we’re implementing two suggestions from the developer community starting September 7, 2016.

Quality Apps
Quality is extremely important to us. We know that many of you work hard to build innovative apps and update your apps on the App Store with new content and features.

Whether your company has offices scattered throughout the country (or the world), relies on a team of road warriors, has embraced telecommuting, or has clients in cities near and far, video conferencing can make the miles between you virtually disappear. After all, with today’s newest video conferencing tools, you can connect, share, see, hear and collaborate—no matter where you are. In fact, it’s almost better than being in the same room.

Sway featured story #3—Planet Labs

Last March, we kicked off our Sway featured series, where we showcase remarkable people and inspirational stories in the Sway medium. Our first story featured Nathan Sawaya, world renowned artist, who pushes the bounds of what LEGO blocks can do in his creative masterpieces. Our second Sway told the story of the Greens, a courageous family who used their personal experience with cancer to open up difficult yet much needed conversations around death and loss.

For our third story, we are pleased to feature Planet Labs, a San Francisco–based startup with the mission to send tiny satellites into space to take detailed imagery of earth. Started in a garage and co-founded by a former NASA engineer, the team continually develops groundbreaking technology that allows them to not only take documentation of our...

In May 2016, we unveiled a new vision for the future of SharePoint, and today we’re pleased to announce the rollout of several new enhancements to SharePoint Online team sites in Office 365, including deeper integration with Office 365 Groups. These enhancements will begin rolling out to Office 365 First Release customers next week.

The home page of a SharePoint Online modern team site gives you immediate visibility into site activity and important documents, with quick access to Office 365 Groups, its members and associated Office 365 apps.

Team site publishing pages and new web parts

Modern team site pages are fast, easy to author and support rich multimedia content. And pages look great on any device, in a browser or from within the SharePoint app. Using pages is a great way to communicate and share your ideas—such as status and trip reports, how-to write-ups, know-before-...

What’s new in Office 365 administration—August update

The new admin center is getting better and better every month. Many of you already use the new admin center as your main management tool, and it’s great to see your feedback on how it is improving your overall Office 365 management experience.

In July and August, we focused on continuing to enhance and automate the setup and configuration experience. This is one of the areas that we have completely redesigned as part of the new admin center.

Here is a summary of how the new admin center makes it easier for admins to get started with Office 365 and how it allows you to quickly onboard your users to the service by providing you with new configuration functionality, more control and additional guidance.

Visio updates—advanced design collaboration, data-...

In the August Office 365 update yesterday, Kirk Koenigsbauer announced the pre-release of Visio Online and Visio on iPad to enable cross-platform consumption of Visio diagrams. Today, we take a hands-on look at both, as well as updates to Visio Pro for Office 365, from one-step data linking to diagrams, to advanced design and collaboration with the enhanced AutoCAD support.

The Visio team is committed to empowering individuals to create anything visually, teams to collaborate throughout the processes, and organizations to effectively communicate one version of the truth. The three scenarios in today’s Microsoft Mechanics demo highlight Visio’s enhancements as a collaboration platform.

For example, with the improved AutoCAD import, architects, engineers and the operations team can now work together on advanced design originating...

Going beyond the ordinary—usingOffice 365 to thrive...

Today’s Microsoft Office 365 post was written by Michael Pynch, technology partner at Wipfli.

I was drawn to Wipfli for the same reason that our clients are: the chance to work with a large, respected firm that feels small and personal. As an accounting and consulting firm, we are in the relationship business, and our firm’s culture of teamwork, communication and respectful, responsive client service is part of our heritage. We call it the “Wipfli Way.” I remember the days when driving a few hours across northern Wisconsin to make key decisions, face to face, was the norm. Today, Wipfli has 36 offices across the United States and two offices in India and we hold ourselves accountable to providing the same level of personal client service, and making business decisions, at digital speed. We are doing this by empowering our more than 1,700 associates with the mobility, connectivity and security of Microsoft cloud technologies, including Office 365, Microsoft CRM...

Stop All The Downloadin’

Just a quick one, to remind you that there are ways you can have a dialog with users about tightening security controls. We’re beating the drum about Flash dying a death, and haven’t included it in our image since the Great Analytics Fiasco of 20.0.0.235. I’m not the most tolerant or creative tech out there, so luckily my boss comes up with ideas about how to deal with our C-level customers inability to roll with the punches and maybe adopt Safari extensions like Open In Chrome. After years of training our (mostly) PC users that ‘a bookmark will be on your Desktop’, it’s maybe understandable that they don’t want that one-click way to push the current webpage to Chrome when they get a page with ‘Missing Plug-In ->’ somewhere on it.

The thing we’re trying to avoid is calls from users saying ‘I noticed I...

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...

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.)
