Office 365 News Roundup

When we review recent Office 365 updates and improvements—something we do every couple of weeks as we pull together this news roundup—it’s usually easy to spot a general theme that ties those announcements together. Whether the theme is productivity, collaboration, teamwork or some other aspect of how Office 365 enhances the way people work, it’s rarely hard to find. Looking across the large number of diverse announcements during the past couple of weeks, however, we were stumped! So this week, we’ll keep our introduction brief and get right to the good stuff.

Let’s start with security and privacy. We gave you a closer look at our current and upcoming controls for compliance, security and organizational search that come with our next-generation information protection tools. We also started enabling organizations to...

Resource Engagements—coming soon to Project 2016

Today’s post was written by Julie Kohler, program manager for the Project Engineering team.

In listening to your feedback, we’ve learned that resource managers and project managers find it challenging to agree on and assign resources for specific projects and tasks. With no clear way to track who is working where, who is over-allocated—and with crossed lines of communication, things can start to break down.

To address these challenges, we are introducing a new capability in the next update of Project called Resource Engagements, which helps align project managers and resource managers on the specific amount of work and time period associated with a project. Resource Engagements are an evolution of the old Resource Plan feature in PWA and all of your existing Resource Plan data will be converted to engagements upon activation or upgrade.

What can project managers do?

As a project manager, in Project Pro you’ll be able to create requests for...

Office 365—monthly Dev Digest for June

This month’s Office 365 Dev Digest was written by Jeremy Thake, technical product manager for the Office 365 Dev team.

Welcome to the fourth edition of Dev Digest, designed to help you—the Office 365 developer—keep-up-to date with what’s new in Office 365 development. This month has been a busy month of inquiries based on everything we announced at the Build and Ignite conferences, which has kept the team busy.  I encourage you all to engage on the Office 365 Technical Network with us with your questions.

There have been some exciting new things released this month including support for Office Add-ins in Excel on the iPad. You’ll need to update your manifest file to do this to v1.1 and declare that you wish to support that client, which is documented on MSDN.

One other item of note is that the Office Graph on the Unified Endpoint...

BYOD with OneNote Class Notebooks—classroom learning...

Today’s post was written by James Gill, grade 6/7 teacher in SD43, Coquitlam, BC.

I began my journey in Office 365 because I had a vision. I wanted to move my students’ work online because it would improve some things in their practice and allow me to improve some things in mine.

I wanted students to be able to work online so that they could access their work from both school and home. Ideally they could access it anywhere. I wanted to take advantage of spellcheck for my many students for whom English is not their first language. I wanted to make editing their writing something that could be accomplished easily, especially for my students with learning disabilities. I also wanted to make it possible to take advantage of the many resources on the Internet, while at the same time teaching students how and why they need to cite their sources.

But in order to accomplish this I had to tackle a few questions:

What do I do when not every kid has a...

Introducing Compliance Search in Office 365

We’re excited to announce a faster and more lightweight way of searching within your organization’s data in Office 365. Compliance Search is a new capability in the Office 365 Compliance Center, designed for times when the full-fledged search case management of eDiscovery search isn’t required.  Compliance Search is ideal for quick searches across content in Office 365, such as searching for specific credit card numbers in SharePoint as part of a Data Loss Prevention (DLP) project.  Compliance Search lets you:

  • Search all your Office 365 data without limits on number of mailboxes or documents
  • Use Keyword Query Language for advanced search
  • Preview search results with hit highlighting
  • Use fine-grained permissions to control what can be searched

Like our existing eDiscovery Search, Compliance Search is done in-place, using the existing search system of Office 365 so you’re always searching recent, up-to-date data. See...

Going off-the-grid with Office 365—selling local...

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Greg Staky, director of information technology at Veriown Energy.  

Veriown Energy began as a typical startup, in August 2013. Instead of an office, we held ad-hoc meetings in each other’s condos and homes. Everyone used whatever devices they had, and we all traveled a lot to meet with researchers, investors and potential customers. Today, we have a head office in Chicago, but that startup work style—mobile, agile, available and productive—remains. One of my first responsibilities was to find the right business tools to match our way of working and our corporate culture. We’re in the business of selling sustainable, clean, local energy consumption—imagine Veriown turning your roof or parking lot into a solar power plant, with almost no capital expense on your part, so you could lock into...

We’re pleased to announce the availability of Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) support for Office Mix and the addition of Microsoft to the IMS Global Learning Consortium as a Contributing Member.

Your people and your data are your organization’s greatest assets. With Office 365, we continuously strive to provide you with more control over how your data is managed and accessed.

At Ignite in May, we announced the ability to assign workload-specific service administrator roles to your organizations IT administrators for Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Skype for Business Online. We’re pleased to announce that this capability is rolling out starting today.

The ability to assign workload-specific admin roles provides your organization more control over how your Office 365 administrators access your data. An admin assigned to a workload-specific admin role would only have access to the relevant controls and settings associated with that workload. For example, the SharePoint Online administrator role provides that admin access to only SharePoint related controls and settings in the Office 365 Admin Center. The SharePoint Online admin can manage SharePoint site...

Rights Management Service departmental templates...

Today’s post was written by Shobhit Sahay, technical product manager for the Office 365 team.

Rights Management Service (RMS) is one of the encryption mechanisms that helps you protect your Intellectual property in Office 365. One of the new RMS capabilities we announced earlier with was departmental templates, a feature that allows organizations to define different policies that will be deployed to different departments (or roles) for their use in documents and emails. We are excited to share that this capability is now natively supported in Office 2013.

Departmental templates make use of an additional parameter for each template, called the “scope,” where you can designate groups that receive this template.

Increasing user satisfaction, adoption, production...

Today’s post was written by Keith Carvalho, vice president of sales for Vitalyst.

For more than 125 years, Southern California Edison (SCE) has delivered electricity to 14 million Californians in homes, businesses and communities in Southern and Central California. Although SCE is one of the nation’s top 20 electric utilities and is among the leaders in its percentage of sustained renewable resources (over 19.9 percent in 2012), SCE was the last large electric public utility to use Lotus Notes.

Organization Change Management (OCM) was identified as the most significant success factor, while the key business drivers were:
