Office 365 Major Updates: July 2018


Hello 🙂

For those who went on vacantion and missed the office 365 updates, here is a quick summary !

User Experience

Source:    Microsoft 365 Blog: Power and simplicity—updates to the Office 365 user experience

Microsoft introduced the ribbon in Office 2007, replacing the traditional menus and toolbars that had been a mainstay in previous versions of Office. With larger, graphical controls clearly visible and grouped by functionality, the ribbon increased the discoverability of features and functions while making them easier to access.

On June 13th, the Office Team announced an update to the ribbon user interface. The goal with this update is to surface the most relevant commands based on the work you’re doing while making it easier to connect and collaborate with others.

The new, updated ribbon is simplified, with one row of buttons instead of two.

Before

After

02

This keeps the features and commands you use most front and center while allowing a bit more space for content. If you prefer the current ribbon that displays two rows of buttons, a simple toggle allows you to revert to the classic view.

03

The first app to get the new, simplified ribbon will be the web version of Word, which began rolling out to a select group of consumer users in June. In July, it will begin rolling out to a select group of Office Insiders. Feedback from these limited rollouts will enable the Office team to make final adjustments and tweaks before rolling out the updated ribbon to other Office application and to all subscribers.

Planner

The Office team continues to integrate Microsoft Planner with Office  365 productivity solutions such as Outlook for calendars, Microsoft Teams for visibility, and SharePoint for files.  In June, SharePoint integration went one step deeper with new features for embedding Planner into SharePoint sites.

Now, the New button on the SharePoint page includes the option to add a Planner plan.

04

You can add an existing plan,or add a new one. Either way, the plan is available on the SharePoint navigation bar giving everyone on the team the ability to manager their tasks right there in SharePoint.

If you want to design a SharePoint page that includes plan details, you now can add a new Planner web part. Simply go to the SharePoint page where you want the plan to appear, click the Edit button, click on the plus sign where you want the plan displayed, and select the new Planner web part.

Teams

SharePoint Community Blog: SharePoint and Teams: Better Together

Microsoft Teams has featured SharePoint integration since the beginning, with the ability to add files from SharePoint directly into the Teams interface. That integration took a big stop forwards recently with the addition of the ability to link an entire SharePoint document library into Microsoft Teams.

I’m able to add the entire library as a tab in Microsoft Teams, complete with the full power of the SharePoint document library experience.

New functionality in the persistent chat function in Teams gives you much more flexibility to manage your experience. Now you can mute a chat if you don’t want to receive notifications about that thread; you can hide a chat, and you can even leave a chat if the conversation is no longer relevant to you.

Video and conference calling integration within Teams has seen several enhancements as well, including:

  • The ability to assign delegates in Teams so that others can make and receive calls on your behalf;
  • the ability to share files from your laptop or from mobile devices including iPhones and iPads;
  • and cloud recording, which enables you to record any meeting for future playback, which is especially helpful to anyone who cannot attend the meeting live.

 

Sway

Source:    Sway Blog: Create on the go with the new Sway for iOS

On May 30th, Microsoft announced the biggest update in the history of Sway for iOS, making it easier than ever to create a Sway from start to finish on iPhone or iPad.  A new toggle enables you to quickly switch between Edit and Preview mode. In Edit, you can add and reorganize media and text. In Preview, you can see your Sway as others will see it, as well as change the Design to fit your personal style.

In addition, the Sway team has redesigned the Edit mode in the app to have a simple look with an all-white canvas. You can easily add photos and videos from your camera or take a new photo right from within Sway. Once added, simply tap on an image to resize it or add a caption. And grouping photos is a snap! Simply drag one image onto another to create a new image group.

07

Sway on iOS also has robust controls for text. You can add emphasis, bullets, numbered lists, links, and block quotes with a single tap.

When you’re ready to share your Sway, you have options to invite others to collaborate on your creation, send a link to view your Sway, or even export and print it.

You can download the updated Sway app for iOS from the Apple Store. If you’re brand new to Sway, I encourage you to check it out at Sway.com.

 

Admin Center

Source:    Office 365 Blog: Admins- welcome to the Microsoft 365 admin center

Microsoft 365 brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility plus Security. The original admin center focused on security, compliance, and device management, but not on Office 365, until now.

In early June, Microsoft announced it was expanding the Microsoft 365 admin center to encompass Office 365. Users of both Office 365 and Microsoft 365 will now have access to the new Microsoft 365 admin center. For Office 365 admins, this means a simpler experience that easily integrates you with other Microsoft services, all without giving up capabilities or control.

If you’ve used the Office 365 admin center before, the experience will seem very similar. The navigation is the same, and you’ll have the same granularity of control over your environment.

To access the new admin center experience, go to admin.microsoft.com. The site enables admins to manage and monitor all of their organization’s Office 365 and Microsoft 365 services in one spot. Note that if you’ve previously created bookmarks for the Office 365 admin center or any of the specialty admin centers, those bookmarks will continue to work.

In the coming months, Microsoft will continue to evolve the admin center to provide a consistent and intuitive experience across all Microsoft 365 products and services.

 

Frequently asked questions about Microsoft Teams


Hello 🙂

We ( Clients and consultants) all have been asking alot of questions about Microsoft Teams. It’s one of the hot subjects of the moment.

So i wantd to publish today a series of questions with the answers of course 🙂

PS: i haven’t had the time to translate them yet, so it will be in french for starters.

Peut-on supprimer un Teams une fois sa ‘mission’ ou son ‘projet’ terminĂ© ?

Bien sûr. Et dans ce cas, les rÚgles standards de rétention seront appliquées.

Concernant les droits justement, est-il possible de définir des droits en lecture seule pour des Guests sur le Teams ?

Il est possible d’interdire au guest de faire des modifications lourdes (crĂ©er un nouveau canal dans le teams par exemple). Cependant au niveau de l’usage il n’est pas prĂ©vu de bloquer la possibilitĂ© au Guest de discuter ou accĂ©der au documents. Le but Ă©tant de collaborer au sein de l’outil. Pour un usage de lecture seule un simple partage de doc (depuis Teams ou OneDrive) suffirait.

Etant utilisateur office et exchange, quel est l’avantage par rapport à slack ?

Bonjour, l’intĂ©gration de Teams est plus forte avec Office 365 de maniĂšre gĂ©nĂ©rale. pour l’administrateur : Gestion des droits d’accĂšs utilisateur, Gestion des rĂšgles de sĂ©curitĂ© des documents etc… pour l’utilisateur : les fonctions tĂ©lĂ©phonie et rĂ©unions arrivent dans Teams : le spectre fonctionnel plus large

Pas de nĂ©cessitĂ© d’ExpressRoute ?

Non ExpressRoute n’est Ă  mon avis pas indispensable comme pour le reste des services Office365.

Pouvons-nous gérer des droits spécifiques pour des folders dans le SharePoint du Teams

Vous avez toute la granularitĂ© de SharePoint (via la vue de management classique SharePoint). Par dĂ©faut tout utilisateur ajoutĂ© Ă  l’Ă©quipe obtient les droits en modification et lecture. Il est cependant possible d’attacher d’autres BibliothĂšques SharePoint au Teams (en plus ou Ă  la place de celui crĂ©er par dĂ©faut) les droit sont alors gĂ©rĂ©s de façon traditionnelle dans le SharePoint (pas d’autorisation de rĂ©plication des droits).

Est-il possible de faire une conférence avec un utilisateur Guest en Skype Grand Public?

Non mais l’utilisateur guest pourra se connecter depuis un browser.

Et quid de l’archivage ?

Vous pouvez appliquer les mĂȘme politiques que celle de vos sites SharePoint Online. Si vous souhaitez faire de la rĂ©tention de donnĂ©e par exemple cela est possible via le compliance center d’Office 365.

Peut-on bloquer l’accùs aux connecteurs tiers ?

Oui, via le centre d’administration. Vous pouvez choisir quels connecteurs vous souhaitez autoriser.

Au-delĂ  de supprimer des canaux crĂ©Ă©s dans une Teams, est-il possible de l’archiver pour conserver les fichiers et flux associĂ©s ?

Il est possible de mettre sous rétention le site SharePoint (donc vos documents). A creuser pour la partie fil de discussions.

Je m’aperçois que lorsque l’on utilise une boite mail hĂ©bergĂ©e sur un Exchange On Prem, je n’ai pas les fonctionnalitĂ©s liĂ©es aux Groups. Est-ce normal ?

Oui c’est une limitation d’un usage avec Exc On Prem

Quels sont les avantages du client riche PC par rapport au client web ?

Les deux sont identiques en terme de fonctionnalitĂ©s. Le client riche offrira plus de confort pour des utilisateurs habituĂ©s Ă  un usage client riche (par exemple dĂ©marrage automatique du produit au lancement de l’ordinateur, notifications etc).

Y a t’il nĂ©cessitĂ© Ă  faire du proxy transparent

Pour éviter la transformation UDP vers TCP, privilégiez le by-pass effectivement

Quelle est la licence Office365 minimale requise

Business ou Enterprise cf ici https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/office-365-licensing

Est-il possible en passant par le client lourd Teams d’avoir un mode “Hors connexion” ?

Non pas pour l’instant

les flux teams et skype sont diffĂ©rent comment s’assure l’intĂ©grabilitĂ© ?

L’interopĂ©rabilitĂ© s’effectue au niveau d’Office 365. Un utilisateur Teams peut chatter et appeler un utilisateur Skype (et vice-versa)

L’interface admin Teams sera disponible Quand ?

Mais elle est déjà disponible !  Vous la trouverez sur le portail office 365 sous Settings / Service & Add ins, Teams.

Mais Microsoft prĂ©pare une nouvelle interface d’administration Skype/Teams. Sa disponibilitĂ© est imminente.

Si Teams s’aperçoit du blocage des flux audio UDP, il utilisera du TCP pour envoyer ces mĂȘmes flux audio?

Oui. Teams va toujours essayer d’abord en UDP, mais si c’est bloquĂ©, il basculera en TCP et la communication s’Ă©tablira quand mĂȘme. Par contre, dans ce cas, les probabilitĂ©s d’avoir une mauvaise qualitĂ© augmentent.

Un utilisateur peut-il avoir Skype et Teams en mĂȘme temps? comment prioriser l’un ou l’autre?

Oui possible. L’administrateur va dĂ©finir des politiques : laisser l’utilisateur choisir, bloquer Skype ou Teams compĂ©temment, scĂ©nario mixte.

Pour les calls, si les flux UDP sont bloquĂ©s, il y a des tentatives d’envoie en TCP?

Oui. Et la communication s’Ă©tablie. Mais le risque que la qualitĂ© soit moins bonne est plus Ă©levĂ© qu’en UDP.
