Enhancing mail flow security for Exchange Online

Protecting your incoming and outgoing emails is a top priority for us, which is why we are always working to mail flow encryption. With the new security vulnerabilities constantly being uncovered, and communication privacy being in the spotlight now more than ever, we seek to upgrade our service to only use the most secure Transport Layer Security (TLS)-based encryption available. In the last year, we have made various changes to our service, and your mail has never been more secure. You can find out more about how we use TLS to secure your emails by reading, “How Exchange Online uses TLS to secure email connections in Office 365.”

An early look at Cortana integration with Office 365

Office 365 is about helping you be more productive so you can make the most of every moment. We believe the future of productivity involves technology that is truly personal and can work on your behalf. This belief is a driving force behind Microsoft’s personal digital assistant Cortana, which is coming to PCs and tablets, with Windows 10. Cortana learns your preferences to provide relevant recommendations, fast access to information, and important notifications. Cortana in Windows 10 can help you at home, at work and on the go.

Learning adventures with the new Mystery Skype...

Today’s post was written by Anne Mirtschin, teacher at Hawkesdale P12 College, a small rural prep school where students are culturally and geographically isolated. Anne is an active Skype Master Teacher.

Picture the ideal classroom where there is fun, frequent laughter, intense concentration, powerful research, dedicated learning, lots of questions posed, and thinking in different ways. Students are pushed outside their comfort zones, confidence is being instilled, valuable 21st century communication skills are learned in a collaborative work environment. Deep, powerful learning is taking place.

Mystery Skype can bring this atmosphere to the classroom—a classroom that can include any age group, culture, race and country across the world. Everyone loves a mystery and hence the increasing popularity of Mystery Skype. In this ‘game,’ students connect with another classroom or educator using Skype....

This week, we’ve started deploying an Office 365 Store to make third-party solutions manageable in the same way, where external web applications can be launched with a single click—all within the Office 365 experience and with no admin configuration or additional sign in steps.

Rolling out to Office 365 customers in the First Release program, the Office 365 Store is accessible through an icon in the app launcher “waffle” in the top navigation bar (see below).

Office Online makes formatting easy

Document imperfections can be distracting. Rather than producing more new content, you might spend time fixing a typo, correcting a formatting error, or moving a graphic. Over the next few weeks, Office Online is rolling out updates to eliminate these distractions to keep you focused on what matters.

Watch this short video to see all the new features:

Text formatting

Office Online is releasing new autocorrect features. The first implementation will make straightforward changes such as capitalizing the first letter of a sentence. In the coming weeks, you will see more advanced automatic formatting such as transforming two hyphens into a dash—just like you’d expect in Word.

Word Online is also adding the Format Painter, a popular office tool that can streamline document design. Format Painter allows you to copy formatting from the selected content (Ctrl + Shift + C) and paste it onto a different set of content (Ctrl + Shift + V).

Today, we are announcing the first phase of a Preview program for two new Education services: Microsoft Class Dashboard and Microsoft School Information Sync, which will be available to Office 365 Education users at no additional charge. Class Dashboard and School Information Sync simplify connections between systems, and simplify communication and collaboration between teachers and students. As a result, teachers have more time to focus on what they love—engaging with students—using Microsoft Office tools that they use every day.

Resource Engagements—coming soon to Project 2016

Today’s post was written by Julie Kohler, program manager for the Project Engineering team.

In listening to your feedback, we’ve learned that resource managers and project managers find it challenging to agree on and assign resources for specific projects and tasks. With no clear way to track who is working where, who is over-allocated—and with crossed lines of communication, things can start to break down.

To address these challenges, we are introducing a new capability in the next update of Project called Resource Engagements, which helps align project managers and resource managers on the specific amount of work and time period associated with a project. Resource Engagements are an evolution of the old Resource Plan feature in PWA and all of your existing Resource Plan data will be converted to engagements upon activation or upgrade.

BYOD with OneNote Class Notebooks—classroom learning...

Today’s post was written by James Gill, grade 6/7 teacher in SD43, Coquitlam, BC.

I began my journey in Office 365 because I had a vision. I wanted to move my students’ work online because it would improve some things in their practice and allow me to improve some things in mine.

I wanted students to be able to work online so that they could access their work from both school and home. Ideally they could access it anywhere. I wanted to take advantage of spellcheck for my many students for whom English is not their first language. I wanted to make editing their writing something that could be accomplished easily, especially for my students with learning disabilities. I also wanted to make it possible to take advantage of the many resources on the Internet, while at the same time teaching students how and why they need to cite their sources.

But in order to accomplish this I had to tackle a few questions:

  • Search all your Office 365 data without limits on number of mailboxes or documents
  • Use Keyword Query Language for advanced search
  • Preview search results with hit highlighting
  • Use fine-grained permissions to control what can be searched

Like our existing eDiscovery Search, Compliance Search is done in-place, using the existing search system of Office 365 so you’re always searching recent, up-to-date data. See...

An inside look at Cloud service provider security...

On this week’s show, we catch up again with Mark Russinovich to explain the how security components in cloud services are managed. Mark discusses the shared responsibility from the IT and service provider perspectives. We cover real customer examples of Microsoft working with customers to detect tenant breach, correct issues and patch any security vulnerabilities. We also discuss the upcoming customer lockbox process and how machine learning and data analytics can be used to detect anomalous patterns.

We’ve invited Mark Russinovich in the past to discuss to assess the top security risks of moving to the cloud and had Matt Swann explain how COSMOS uses the power of the cloud to detect anomalies in the cloud. On this show we walk...

Going off-the-grid with Office 365—selling local...

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Greg Staky, director of information technology at Veriown Energy.  

Veriown Energy began as a typical startup, in August 2013. Instead of an office, we held ad-hoc meetings in each other’s condos and homes. Everyone used whatever devices they had, and we all traveled a lot to meet with researchers, investors and potential customers. Today, we have a head office in Chicago, but that startup work style—mobile, agile, available and productive—remains. One of my first responsibilities was to find the right business tools to match our way of working and our corporate culture. We’re in the business of selling sustainable, clean, local energy consumption—imagine Veriown turning your roof or parking lot into a solar power plant, with almost no capital expense on your part, so you could lock into...
