On September 2, 2016, Anna Chu, a community manager from the Office 365 Network at Microsoft, posted an announcement that the network is rebranding as the Microsoft Tech Community, and confirms that the Yammer-based Office 365 Network will shut down on September 15, 2016.

News about the first email social engineering attack against Office 365 came alongside Microsoft’s announcement that the anti-spam SmartScreen technology is being deprecated. Stay safe people!

Sort of buried in the small type of a blog by the SharePoint Team was a notice that the size of SharePoint Online site collections will increase to 25 TB.
Office Blogs ON Aug 31, 2016
In a post to Office Blogs today, the SharePoint team announced new features for SharePoint Online team sites and Office 365 Groups. The enhancements will begin rolling out to Office 365 First Release customers in early September. If you use Office 365 Groups, be aware that they will all be updated with their own team site when these new enhancements roll out to production.

SQL Server 2016, possibly better than previous releases, offers a clear licensing choice that really comes down to scale.

In a post today to the Office Dev Center by Bill Baer, Microsoft released the new SharePoint Framework Developer Preview (SPFx). I was watching the Twitter feed from SharePoint Fest Seattle, and Jeff Teper (@jeffteper) announced the preview in his keynote.

In a post on Andrew Connell’s blog today, Andrew posted his pledge for the #IStandByYou campaign along with his August 3 interview for the Microsoft Cloud Show with Cathy Dew about Women in Technology. Good post, Andrew! And good show!

If you manage an Office 365 tenant and you have one of 4 specific types of plans, you can use PowerShell in SharePoint Online to raise the storage limit, 5 TB at a time, for users who hit the default 1 TB limit. For the rest of us, we'll stay at the 1 TB limit that Microsoft set.

In a post to Office Blogs on July 25, 2016, the SharePoint team announced modern lists, coming soon for SharePoint Online. They're in preview now, but the preview version does not support customizations. Don't panic. Though the SharePoint Team have not stated it specifically, Wictor has compiled statements from the team inferring that classic SharePoint lists will be supported in classic mode.

If you are trying to decide whether content for SharePoint Online should go into site collections or sites because of backup and restore considerations, the insight Jasper gained from an exchange with Microsoft Support will interest you.

OneNote is a great tool, and I can hardly function without it now. But there are times when I need to have the OneNote page displayed side-by-side with the other application I have on the screen, and I don't want to keep switching back and forth between screens. I can do that by automatically docking my page to the side of my desktop.

Have you ever been in a situation where you made a change in OneNote in the last couple of days, but now you can't find it. Sandra Mahan showed me a feature I had never used before… the Recent Edits option.

It's common to get a number of "Accepted" or "Declined" responses to tell you who is coming to a meeting, but most of them don't have any additional comments. You end up opening up each one, only to immediately delete it. However, there is a setting in Outlook that will automatically delete those for you if they don't have any comments. It's a great setting to help reduce Inbox clutter…

It's not uncommon to have a situation where you'd like an email to be sent out at a later date and time from the moment you create it. Perhaps you'll be on vacation next week, and you want to remind someone that their report is due on Wednesday with a reminder email sent to them on Tuesday. You can do that in Outlook!

The other day, someone called and indicated that they couldn't find a Skype recording from a meeting they had just completed.

Searching for emails in Outlook is pretty common. However, it seems like I rarely search for calendar entries. Sandra Mahan brought this to my attention yesterday, and I thought it was pretty cool.

A few tips ago, I showed you how to create a custom Outlook template for email formats that you send on a regular basis. A colleague sent me an email asking if it was possible to edit one of those custom templates once you saved it. And the answer is… yes you can!

Yesterday I was asked if there was a way to temporarily sort emails by categories based on the way you want to see the categories ordered. While there’s not a way (that I know of) to create a “custom” sort order to your categories (I think you’re stuck with sorting in alphabetic order), you can create search folders that can be filtered for various content.

Yesterday I received the latest Efficiency 365 newsletter from Dr. Nitin Paranjape titled Date Magic In Outlook, and it blew my mind. I had NO clue that you could use date shortcuts like these when you're creating new tasks and appointments.

We've all had that "oops" moment when you send an email out to someone (or a group of people), and you immediately see a typo that you need to correct. Outlook allows you to recall email messages that you sent out, provided that the emails haven't yet been read.
Thomas Duff ON Sep 30, 2016
If you get Outlook emails that are formatted as plain text, your replies will also default to plain text. However, there is a way to change the formatting to HTML or Rich Text.

A work colleague pointed out a cool feature in Outlook that I didn't know about, and that I plan on using on a few mail folders. Instead of the default setting to show the number of unread messages, you can instead show the total number of items in a folder.
