Sway updates—create interactive charts, image Focus...

Recently we announced that Sway now allows shared editing and same-time collaboration, so you can work together to easily bring your ideas to life in an interactive way with friends, family and coworkers. Enabling collaboration in Sway was a top requested feature in our feedback forums, and it was a big step in our journey with Sway Preview—a journey which we’re continuing with more updates to announce today!

Sway now lets you create interactive charts

Since we introduced Sway to the world, it has always been our plan to add support for interactive charts and graphs, so you could support your narrative with the help of interactive data visualizations, along with other sorts of rich multimedia. In January, we added support for...

The philosophy behind Focus Points in Sway

We just touched the surface of the problem area in today’s announcement, so we’d like to dive a little further with you in this post since this truly was an interesting problem.

How does Sway automatically crop images?

First a little background. When we built Sway’s “designer in a box” code, we created an algorithm that we call “Smart Cropping,” and this has been working silently in the background since Sway Preview started in October 2014. This algorithm evaluates pictures in order to understand what is interesting and what isn’t so Sway can create well-composed image crops.

When you drop a picture into your Sway, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes. Sway identifies things like faces, invariant regions (what’s uniform), horizons and other strong lines, and more, as well as how...

Office 365 news roundup

During the Golden Age of Advertising, when Coca-Cola taught the world to sing, Burger King promised we could have it our way, and Dinah Shore encouraged us to see the USA in our Chevrolet, nothing beat a product that was “new and improved.” That’s still true today. Fortunately, Office 365 is always new and improved—week after week, month after month, year after year. We never stop adding new features and improvements, and you never have to wait. You get them as soon as they are available.

The past couple of weeks have been a busy time for Office 365 updates and improvements. Just this week, we started rolling out Skype for Business Online to eligible customers worldwide; Office 2013 users can expect the new Skype for Business client as part of the April update. ...

Enhanced non-delivery reports (NDRs) in Office 365

This post is written by Kevin Shaughnessy, senior program manager and Shobhit Sahay, technical product manager for the Office 365 team.

Regardless which email system or service you use, when an email message you send can’t be delivered you’ll receive a non-delivery report (NDR), also known as a bounce message. The NDR will tell you the message wasn’t delivered, but after that it’s mostly technical jargon designed more for computer science professionals than for the typical email user. You’re often left to fend for yourself to try to fix the issue, searching the web and posting questions on forums for clues to what’s going on and, more importantly, how to fix it. While advances in technology over the last 30 years have been immense, the state of the art in NDRs is still just an homage to 1982—overly technical and ill-designed for the modern email user. But that’s about to change.

Over the next several months, NDRs generated by Office 365 will be enhanced to...

Modern productivity—Office on Windows

Today’s post was written by Jared Spataro, general manager for the Office marketing team.

Today I’m excited to share that the Office Universal apps preview for Windows 10 for phone is expected to be available by the end of the month. With this announcement, we’re rounding out our Office on Windows line-up, and I wanted to take the opportunity to explain our strategy of Universal and Desktop apps.

Office Universal

Our Office Universal apps are designed for on-the-go productivity. They’re touch-first, built for tablets and phones, and optimized for viewing, quick edits, notes and mark-up. On a tablet, the Universal apps are fast, fluid, and streamlined for an immersive, hands-on experience. They’re fantastic for reading and perfect for touch- and pen-based content creation. On a phone, the Universal apps adapt to the smaller form factor. Commands and controls are moved to the bottom of the screen so you can triage your work and make edits one-handed with...

SharePoint Server 2016 update

Today’s post was written by Seth Patton, senior director of product management for the SharePoint team.

In February, we shared our vision on the evolution of SharePoint, outlining our plans for continued cloud innovation with SharePoint in Office 365, and providing a glimpse of the work underway to deliver our next on-premises server release, SharePoint Server 2016.  With Ignite just a few weeks away, we’re getting ready to share more details on the innovation we’re bringing to SharePoint 2016. In the meantime, I wanted to provide an update on release timing and share some of the key enhancements and new capabilities we’re focused on.

Today, we are confirming that SharePoint Server 2016 will become generally available in Q2 2016, with a public beta planned for Q4 2015.  We also want to confirm our commitment to delivering on-premises releases of SharePoint for the foreseeable future. We...

Today’s post on Office 365 Video was written by Mark Kashman, senior product manager on the Office 365 team.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, video then makes a James Joyce novel look tiny. Video is a popular medium for effective, engaging internal communications—and its importance is growing. Office 365 Video, too, is growing, providing organizations with a secure, company-wide destination for posting, sharing and discovering video content. And the video experience—embedded within Office 365—meets IT requirements and wins the hearts and minds of users.

Today, we are excited to announce the rollout of Office 365 Video to all eligible Office 365 business customers worldwide. We’re also pleased that Office 365 Video “gets mobile” with a new, native iPhone app and modern web experiences.

Evolving Yammer for a new era of teamwork

This post was written by Juliet Wei, a senior product marketing manager for the Yammer team.

Yesterday we laid out our vision for modern collaboration in Office 365, which recognizes that collaboration is central to productivity and teams today are dynamic, extending far beyond the four walls of an organization. To get work done, teams need an easy way to self-organize, stay connected on the go, tap into the network of stakeholders inside and outside your company—and do all this while juggling multiple projects.

In talking with customers about how they get the most out of Yammer, we’ve learned that those who realize the most value use Yammer as a home for their projects and initiatives.The new world of work we’re living in demands a new way for people to work together. That’s why we’re on a mission to transform team collaboration. Take a look at this video to see how teams use Yammer as part...

Office 365 now supports larger email messages—up to...

Today’s post was written by Kevin Shaughnessy, senior program manager and Shobhit Sahay, technical product manager for the Office 365 team.

For the last few years the largest email message you could send or receive in Office 365 was 25 MB. While 25 MB is more than enough for the majority of email, you might bump up against that limit when trying to send large slide decks, spreadsheets or videos. Outlook Web App (OWA) in Office 365 offers an easy way to “attach” a document as a link to where it’s saved on OneDrive for Business, a great option for sharing large files with your colleagues. But there are times when you’d prefer to send a large file as an actual attachment rather than a link. For those times, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve increased the allowed maximum message size to 150 MB, giving Office 365 administrators the ability to set the maximum message size of their...

The rise of dynamic teams

This post was written by Bryan Goode, senior director of Modern Collaboration.

“Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.” —Helen Keller

As we gear up for //build and Ignite and get ready to share more about the innovation going on across Office 365, I wanted to take a moment to share our vision for modern collaboration and address why Office 365 is uniquely positioned to usher in this new era.

Over the past several years, advances in cloud, mobile and social technologies have forever altered the nature of work. But look a little deeper, and it’s about more than just the technologies; it’s about the impact they’ve had on the flow of information. We used to go looking for it. Now it comes to us. In this age of greater transparency and discoverability, it’s clear that the open exchange of information leads to quicker decision-making and...

Ground Control + Bushel = A Comprehensive iOS...

Bushel is a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution. We can manage all kinds of cool things, but there are a few things we can’t do. These include:

  • Controlling where app badges are on screens
  • Enrolling without first entering a wi-fi password
  • Supervising devices that aren’t managed using Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP)
  • Updating iOS devices (iPads, iPhones, iPod Touches) to the latest operating system

Apple Configurator can do many of these tasks, but has limitations. There’s a tool out there called GroundControl. GroundControl is super-simple to use, like Bushel. GroundControl can deploy a backup to a device, which is how it controls where badges are on screens. GroundControl can also provide the wi-fi credentials to get on a network, places devices into supervision (so Bushel can easily manage Activation Lock Bypass on non-DEP enabled devices),...

TA15-103A: DNS Zone Transfer AXFR Requests May Leak...

Original release date: April 13, 2015
Systems Affected

Misconfigured Domain Name System (DNS) servers that respond to global Asynchronous Transfer Full Range (AXFR) requests.

Overview

A remote unauthenticated user may request a DNS zone transfer from a public-facing DNS server. If improperly configured, the DNS server may respond with information about the requested zone, revealing internal network structure and potentially sensitive information.

Description

AXFR is a protocol for “zone transfers” for replication of DNS data across multiple DNS servers. Unlike normal DNS queries that require the user to know some DNS information ahead of time, AXFR queries reveal subdomain names [1]. Because a zone transfer is a single query, it could be used by an adversary to efficiently obtain DNS data.  

A well-known problem with DNS is that zone transfer requests can disclose domain...

Office 365—allowing us to focus on what matters most...

Today’s Office 365 post was written by Timothy Harris, vice president of global IT shared services at Mylan, a global pharmaceutical company.

In information technology, it’s tempting to be wowed by a new product or swayed by a charismatic salesperson. But if I’m doing my job well, I actually look beyond the technology itself. I stay focused on solving my company’s business problems. For example, Mylan has been growing so quickly that we’ve found it difficult to establish a cohesive technology suite for our geographically distributed workforce.

In the past several years, we’ve acquired new business units that expanded our capacity to produce life-saving pharmaceuticals, but they also created an IT environment with lots of overlapping products that confused users and made it challenging to work together, especially across...

Return of the Intermittent Bricking

So it used to be we’d wait for machines that were bound to Active Directory running 10.10.0-10.10.2 to freeze during startup and we’d either

  1. perform CPR or
  2. apply rc.server script fixes.

‘Things can only get better,’ we said. ‘Just trust them,’ we said. ‘They’ll get it all fixed if we just wait a bit longer’, we said.

Wrong.

This issue with createmobileaccount lengthens user migrations and disrupts the QA’d process we’ve been using in our organizations for years. Now we’re supposed to say ‘jolly good, carry on, we can just wait until 10.10.4 for that?’ Oh, pardon, that’s not a big enough deal?

Sway guest blog—artist teacher Winston Struye

Today’s post on Sway was written by guest blogger and Slideluck Youth Initiative artist teacher Winston Struye.

My job title at the Slideluck Youth Initiative is “artist teacher” and it’s not a job I take lightly. To me, the role of an “artist teacher” is similar to that of a “creative leader” in a workplace: someone who can incite creativity in others, open people to possibilities that they did not see before, and, above all else, point students towards the “artist” they all have within them. My method of doing this is by providing students with tools (such as ideas, applications, methods) that can potentially illuminate their own creative potential. And Sway has turned out to be one of the most effective luminaries for showing my students the artists they all within themselves.

The Slideluck Youth Initiative is a branch of...

The March Office 365 updates cover an impressive range: previews, significant improvements, new capabilities and connectors, and a new app. You can now preview Office 2016 for Mac, send information in Gmail messages straight to OneNote, preview your notes in OneNote for iPhone, capture web content more easily with OneNote Clipper 2.0, and more.

For Office 365 business users, three new previews are available: Office 2016 IT Pro and Developer Preview, Skype for Business technical preview, and Office 2013 client modern authentication public preview. Admins can now manage access to data on mobile devices, and use the admin app to perform common tasks on the go. Excel Power Query and Delve got significant improvements, and there’s a new Salesforce app for Outlook. And for JavaScript developers, new capabilities for working with the Office 365 APIs are here.

Leave us a comment to let us know what your favorite new feature is. If you missed last month’s updates, see...
