If there’s one thing all SharePointers have to keep in mind, it’s the limits of the tool you’re using. I’ve put together a useful infographic you should consult to remind yourself what limitations you could hit in SharePoint if you’re not careful. These limits are specific to SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online.

Vendors of backup software often focus on the data belonging to a single application. It’s an approach that does not work for Office 365 where new applications use components drawn from multiple workloads. Traditional backup and restore approach is inadequate Office 365 Groups and Office 365. But the real question is whether cloud backups make sense.

Learn how Azure Information Protection, now in public preview, allows existing Azure Rights Management (RMS) templates to be applied to protect content generated by Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook (2010 to 2016) automatically based on a simple classification scheme defined in an Azure protection policy.

The news that Microsoft Press had decided to lay off all its editorial staff came as a shock, especially as I know some of the folks working there as a result of writing two Exchange Inside Out books. It’s always sad when people lose their jobs, but it is much sadder when a highly profitable company can’t find a way to keep such a worthy business unit going.

A dozy Friday afternoon in mid-summer is just the time to announce a change in direction, which is just what Microsoft did today when they said that the current Yammer-based Office 365 Network was going to be swapped out for a new Office 365 Network powered by the well-known Lithium platform.

It’s summertime, Microsoft has just entered a new fiscal year, and the Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) is in full swing in Toronto. I resisted the temptation to join the heaving multitudes at WPC and instead listened to the live steam of the Tuesday keynote to hear what Microsoft executives were saying about Azure and Office 365.

Using some good graphics, Marc explains the levels of hierarchy in SharePoint in a way that will make sense to most users who struggle with where a document goes and where one might want to establish security for sharing documents with others.

Office 365 makes it much easier to protect confidential information using Azure Rights Management Services (RMS). Companies often want to control the encryption keys used to protect information using a process called “Bring Your Own Key” (BYOK). Azure RMS supports BYOK for Office 365 but only if you accept some significant reductions in Exchange Online functionality.

When you are the organizer of a meeting, you typically have to take notes of the meeting and share them with all the participants. This can sometimes be a lot of work. Did you know there's an easier way to do it in OneNote?

Office 365 is not immune to security vulnerabilities in the code that make up its services. In this case, an ISV discovered a gaping hole in a new API introduced in March 2016 to enable access to reporting data for Office 365 tenants. Fortunately, the gap has been fixed and we can relax. That is, until the next vulnerability is discovered.
Microsoft announced their FY16 Q4 results on July 19 and the market duly applauded. My eye was taken by the rather small subtitle on the results announcement that proclaims that the annualized revenue run rate for commercial cloud products had reached $12.1 billion, an increase of $4.1 billion over the year, underlining the strong growth in demand for cloud services.

You can’t have too many services to upload, organize, and play back videos. Microsoft has done a decent job of the Office 365 Video portal, but it operates within the walled garden of an Office 365 tenant and the videos are only accessible to tenant users. The new Stream service (now in preview) is designed to be more social and more accessible to the wider world. The two will merge in the future.

Excel is a great way to build tables of data, but sometimes you need to make sure you don't have any duplicates in your data. That may be easy if you only have a dozen rows, but what if you have thousands?
It's very simple… use the Remove Duplicates menu option!

I’m technically on vacation and supposed to be sunning myself in the South of France. However, the ecosystem surrounding Office 365 never stops evolving and changing and I keep a wary eye on what’s happening, even by the pool. Here’s what I have been looking at in the last week.
