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.

If you have a backlog of email in your inbox, it can be difficult to quickly judge how old things are. You can help fix that by using the Show In Groups feature in your Outlook Inbox view.

This is for those old-timers like me who remember when you had to have the expensive version of Adobe to create PDF files (or you'd install free PDF print drivers to get around that). Microsoft has solved that problem, and now you can save a Word document directly to a PDF format.

I'm part of four different Group Chats in Skype for Business that are important to my role and function. But a couple of the chats are high traffic and don't often directly pertain to what I'm doing. To keep up on those chats, I rely on the Ego Feed entry. Ego Feed can be set to only show me things that have certain keywords.

I stumbled across the Privacy Relationship settings in Skype for Business yesterday, and I found some interesting options that I thought I'd share with you today.

Did you know you can drag and drop attachments to and from emails? This is one of those things that I probably knew, but I never use the feature as I'm so used to using menu options.

There have been times when I've needed to have two different areas of OneNote open at the same time, and this tip has been a lifesaver in terms of getting everything to display properly.

Most of the time when you click on a link in a web page, you go to another web page. But occasionally, the link opens a new email pre-populated with an address (and often a subject line and text in the body of the email). Would you like to know how to make those types of links?
You know when you're in a Skype for Business meeting, and every time someone enters or exits the call you hear the Skype chime? It's useful when you're getting ready to meet, but it can be distracting once the meeting is underway. Using the information below, you can turn the chime off during a call if you're a presenter.

Being able to share my screen during Skype for Business calls is a feature that I couldn't live without in my work life. However, there are times when the Currently Presenting bar at the top of the screen blocks out information that I need to be sharing. Here's how you can hide the Currently Presenting bar, as well as how you can make it reappear again.

Each Microsoft Office program (such as Outlook, Word, Excel, etc., as well as many other non-Microsoft programs) offers a variety of options when you paste content. This tip looks at Keep Source Formatting, Merge Formatting, and Keep Text Only.

If you're like me, you have a few emails (or a lot) that are in your Inbox as you're working it like a To Do list. You need all the information that's in a particular email, but you also need to add a couple of notes, details, or attachments to keep everything in one place. You can edit an existing email message without sending it to anyone.

I'm sure I'm not the only person who has struggled with trying to center information on a page in Word. I've spent too much time trying to add enough line feeds and tabs to get that effect. Had I known about this particular formatting option, my life would have been much easier.
