BLOG ROUNDUP

What a month it’s been. In just a few weeks, the way we work and live has changed. Our customers’ needs have never been clearer, or more urgent, than they are right now. And our top priority is to help you meet those needs by building the tools that help you enable your employees to work remotely; helping you find the right digital tools to transform your in-person events into virtual ones; and securing organizational assets to help you protect your business, even in challenging times. This month, we have new features and capabilities designed to help keep your business moving during COVID-19 and beyond. New capabilities in Microsoft Teams, for instance, help you host more effective, inclusive, and focused online meetings and offer virtual solutions for one-on-one consultations. A crisis management site in SharePoint helps your organization quickly share information during emergencies. And an improved search experience in Outlook allows you to quickly find what you need in your email and calendar. | Related: New Microsoft 365 offerings for small and medium-sized businesses | Video – What’s New with Microsoft 365 | March 2020

As organizations across the globe are taking their operations online, they are increasingly relying on Microsoft Teams to stay connected, enable remote work and keep their business going. For our Skype for Business customers planning their move to Teams, we want to provide an update on the latest Teams functionality improvements and resources that can help you with your transition. | Resource: Video Playlist – Upgrade to Microsoft Teams

The fight against COVID-19 continues, and for many of us that means weeks or months of remote work ahead. From small stand-ups to convention-center-spanning conferences, meeting and event planners are scrambling to bring important work gatherings online. Earlier this month, we published an overview of our virtual teams and meetings capabilities to help our customers understand the available options. But many followed up to ask: “How do I choose the right virtual meeting platform for my particular meeting or event?” Also, because these capabilities typically support up to 10,000 attendees: “What do I do when I’m planning an event for 10,000-plus? Here’s the short breakdown on the first question: (a) Microsoft Teams meetings are great for bringing groups of people together to participate throughout. Think: staff meetings and brainstorms, and (b) Microsoft 365 live events, meanwhile, work best for “one-to-many” or “few-to-many” scenarios, like a keynote, a CEO town hall, or a moderated panel discussion. To address that second customer question—the one about events larger than 10,000 attendees—I’m sharing an important announcement here – through July 1, 2020, we will be temporarily enabling up to 100,000 attendees through the live events assistance program.

This post includes all the SharePoint and related tech updates that rolled out in March 2020. This is the all-inclusive roadmap release recap for all things SharePoint and related technology. Highlighted features include multi-lingual publishing for pages and news in communications sites, the SharePoint mobile app will adhere to customized tenant themes and branding, SharePoint root site swap is now available to all customers, redesigned SharePoint Pages and Lists app for teams, a new standalone SharePoint pages app, and many more! All the features listed began rolling out to Targeted Release customers in Office 365 as of March 2020 (possibly early April 2020).

Last year we announced changes to make Exchange Online more secure, and earlier this year we provided some updates on progress. In response to the COVID-19 crisis and knowing that priorities have changed for many of our customers we have decided to postpone disabling Basic Authentication in Exchange Online for those tenants still actively using it until the second half of 2021. We will provide a more precise date when we have a better understanding of the impact of the situation. We will continue to disable Basic Authentication for newly created tenants by default and begin to disable Basic Authentication in tenants that have no recorded usage starting October 2020. And of course you can start blocking legacy authentication today, you don’t need us to do anything if you want to get started (and you should). We will also continue to complete the roll-out of OAuth support for POP, IMAP, SMTP AUTH and Remote PowerShell and continue to improve our reporting capabilities. We will publish more details on these as we make progress. We still intend to move our customers away from Basic Authentication as we still very strongly believe improving security in Exchange Online benefits all of us, and so we’ll announce more accurate timelines for disabling Basic Authentication for tenants with usage at a later date.

April is a big month for Power Apps, with 2020 Release Wave I updates rolling out in full swing. In addition to the major announcements of Mixed Reality coming to Power Apps and AI Builder becoming generally available for many scenarios, we’ve been busy improving the core Power Apps offering across the board as well. This post rounds up many of the latest updates available now or very soon. If you haven’t already seen the Virtual Launch Event, you can view it here. This event provides a great overview of the updates across all of the Power Platform and Business Applications. You can also see a lot of these updates in action in our recently released Emergency Response Solution.

We are excited to announce that you can access the new Yammer experience and functionality in the latest versions of the iOS and Android apps. Yammer mobile now leverages the Microsoft Fluent design language to deliver a delightful user experience that provides a sense of consistency while moving between different Microsoft mobile and web apps. The app has a new layout that highlights the content of the conversations to help users focus on what matters. The updated profile gives users easy access to their personal profile, networks, settings, and organizational branding. The improved communities list helps users quickly find their communities and discover new ones.

In our previous blog post we covered an overview of what migration endpoints are, how to find them and what makes them tick. In this post, we will cover related troubleshooting. Note that this post has some in-depth troubleshooting steps, so it is not necessarily something that you’ll read for fun, but we wanted to make it available for those times when you run into trouble! Before getting to the part where we troubleshoot specific migration endpoint issues, we’ll cover the top reasons why a migration endpoint cannot be created. Whether you are having trouble creating new migration endpoints in Office 365 Exchange Online or are not able to migrate anymore to or from Exchange Online using an existing migration endpoint, the cmdlet Test-MigrationServerAvailability is your dear friend. Always run this cmdlet in Exchange Online PowerShell, not from on-premises Exchange Management Shell. We will focus on hybrid migration endpoint issues and the cmdlet syntax for this endpoint type.

Outlook is designed to help you connect, organize and get things done quickly and easily. With all your emails, calendar events, contacts and files in one place it is even more critical to simplify how you find what you need. Microsoft Search is providing helpful ways to do that with new innovation in Outlook for iOS and Android using intelligent technology to provide insights and predictive results. Search in Outlook mobile is organized and personalized for you, saving you time and helping you be prepared for your commitments. We are pleased to announce that we’re rolling out the ability to use natural language to search to find what you need in Outlook for iOS and Android. This means you can choose to speak or type your search query using everyday language to filter and narrow your search for emails, calendar events, contact information and files. This new way to search in Outlook can save you time when you dictate your query rather than type and when you use filtering terms such as “last week”, “next appointment”, or “phone number” to easily get to the results that you need.

Bring out your best writer anywhere you write with Microsoft Editor, your intelligent writing assistant. Many of us are working or attending school remotely, and with so much communication happening through writing it is more important than ever that we communicate clearly. Microsoft Editor, an AI-powered service that enables you to write with confidence in 20+ languages, can help. Write polished prose, craft impressive emails, and post on your favorite sites like LinkedIn, Gmail, Facebook, and more. Anyone can access the essential Editor capabilities, such as spelling and basic grammar across Word, Outlook.com, and the web for free with a Microsoft sign-in. However, Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscribers have access to advanced grammar and style refinements. Clarity, conciseness, formal language, vocabulary suggestions, and much more are included with your subscription. Optimized for where you write most, Editor will be available in three main places: documents (Word for the web and desktop), email (Outlook.com and Outlook for the web), and across the web (through our new browser extension). While Editor will be available to help everyone with the basics for free, for Microsoft 365 users there are some additional powerful features that vary by endpoint.
