Office 365 Development Patterns & Practices...

The Office 365 Development Patterns & Practices team shipped the new open source repository today to GitHub.com/OfficeDev. This marks the transition from the Office App Model Samples (Office AMS) project, which was an internal Microsoft initiative, to a broader open source community vision.

Background

The Office AMS team shipped three main releases in the last year that focused on common customer scenarios. Many existing SharePoint developers were extremely familiar with how to build these scenarios with SharePoint Full Trust Code solutions and Office VSTO/COM add-ins, but didn’t know how to approach implementing these same scenarios with the App Model. The main purpose of providing these samples is to address this transformation...

  3. View your password protected sections.

Network Port Testing With Netcat

You can do some pretty simple testing of ports and network communications using strategies I’ve outlined in the past with tcpdump, trace route, telnet, curl, stroke and of course ping. However, netcat has a few interesting things you can do with it; namely actually run a port super-quickly to test traffic between subnets, forcing scans of ipv6 traffic, debugging sockets, keeping connections alive, parodying through SOCKS 4 and 5 and just checking for daemons that are listening rather than actually sending data to them.

In this first example, we’re going to just check that Apple’s web server is accessible (adding -v for verbose output):

/usr/bin/nc -v www.apple.com 80

The result would be pretty verbose

Retaining a competitive advantage: Why staying...

Today’s post was written by Jennifer Yust, senior marketing manager on the Lync team.

It’s no secret—an organization that runs well internally is better positioned to adapt to changing market conditions, shorten project timelines, and add more value for its customers. That’s why MWH Global, a “wet infrastructure” engineering firm that handles huge water-related projects, has embraced each new version of Microsoft unified communications (UC) solutions as it is released. As Gregory Tornrose, the firm’s Global Director of IT Operations, puts it, “Our strategy is to simplify our technology tools and processes and empower employees to work in whatever ways they want to stay productive, share ideas, and serve our customers.” And that’s exactly what the firm is doing with Microsoft Lync.

The upgrade path

MWH Global recently upgraded to Microsoft Lync Server 2013 to uphold its practice of staying at the forefront of technology and to gain the latest...

This week we examine things that have recently been added as new capabilities to the apps for Office model itself. The great thing about the cloud and its agile development is that the extensibility platform itself can continually evolve. So we highlight the top 5...

The Center for American Progress is an independent nonpartisan educational institute dedicated to improving the lives of Americans. Our goal is to shape the national debate by critiquing existing policies, developing new policy ideas, and challenging the media to cover the issues that truly matter. To achieve these goals, some of our staff is tasked with helping develop legislative ideas and driving their deployment. Some are expert witnesses for congressional hearings and meetings, some create training programs on policy, and others release reports and messages to the media and to executive, legislative, and state agencies. For all these tasks in our “need to know everything and be everywhere” world, communication and...

Mousecape – Customize Cursors on OS X

Mousecape is a new open source Mac App which is available on GitHub to finally allow you to create and use your own mouse cursors, or 'capes' as the app calls them.



Once you download the app, there is a remastered version of the Svanslös cursor set created by Max Rudberg which is retina-screen ready.



Mousecape is as non-instrusive as possible, never asking you for your password for anything. It works by using private APIs created by Apple to register system cursors so it has no performance hit at all.



Capes, or cursor sets, are applied for as long as display state doesn't change, meaning until you change resolution, monitors, sleep your computer, reboot or logout. However, inside of the application is a helper application that will detect when the cape is reset and will apply it again.

Montgomery County, PA: How government can become...

Today’s post was written by Anthony Olivieri, Chief Technology Officer at Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

One of the best things about working in technology is that there’s always something new, some way to “build a better mousetrap.” But mousetraps are only worthwhile if they truly address the business needs that you’ve identified within your organization.

Montgomery County is considered a leader when it comes to effective use of technology in the public sector. We feel it’s our obligation to harness technology to empower employees to work smarter and be more productive, while reducing costs. When we increase productivity, we can serve the public more quickly and comprehensively—which is ultimately our mission.

When I consider my vision for the County, I think first of mobile productivity. One of my top priorities is to enable County...

Microsoft’s unified technology event for enterprises

Over the past few months, it has been awesome to connect with our technical communities, customers, and partners at the SharePoint Conference, Lync Conference, Exchange Conference, Project Conference, and most recently, at TechEd North America. While the world is increasingly digital, there is still no replacement for time together, in person, to talk tech and business, and simply get to know each other better. Hands down, my favorite weeks of the past year have been those spent at these conferences, meeting with many, many of you!

As we took stock of the past conferences and looked forward to the next year of conferences, we decided we can do better – better for our technical communities, better for our business customers, better for our partners, and better for Microsoft. Part of this is a recognition that as our industry continues to evolve, so must our approach to creating valuable experiences for all of you. Part of this recognition is feedback from attendees across the...

As the Chief Technology Officer of AvePoint Public Sector and having been in this space for years as a Microsoft MVP, I have witnessed the power of Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference firsthand and can honestly say it continues to be one of the industry’s most valuable assets. The buzz of partners from all over the world congregating in a city with as much repute as Washington D.C. (my hometown) only elevates the excitement.

Make iWork 09 the default and avoid update nagging

Many people continue to use iWork 09 apps, because they contain features missing in the newer versions. However, having the older apps on your system mean a constant nagging from Apple to update to the newer versions. If you do download the newer versions, then it is impossible to make the older apps the default for your documents. The old Get Info » Change All trick doesn't work.



Here's what to do to remedy that.



First, make a backup. Then install the latest iWork apps. Your older versions get moved to a subfolder called iWork 09. That's why you have the backup.



Next, move the NEW apps to an external disk or other partition. You can then restore the 09 apps to the /Applications folder. Or leave them in the subfolder if you prefer.



Having the apps on different volume from the system disk lowers their priority, so the 09 apps in your /Applications folder remain the defaults for your...

Podcasting with OneNote

William Devereux is a Program Manager on the OneNote team.

I’ve been podcasting for nearly six years and recorded over 200 episodes. Along the way, I’ve gone through dozens of equipment configurations, including different microphones, PCs, and recording software. But one thing has remained the same since the beginning: OneNote. My fellow hosts and I rely heavily on OneNote, thanks to its sharing and real-time collaboration features.

Every podcast needs show notes to help the hosts stay on track, and this is where OneNote truly shines. All three of the hosts have access to our shared OneNote notebook, allowing us to edit topics, move them around, and even cross them off in real time. The changes are instantaneous, so it feels like we’re sitting in the same room instead of hundreds of miles apart. And with OneNote Online, our guests can access the show notes too,...

This week I attended the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC). It was a great way to connect with Lync partners and see them in action—demoing new products, swapping success stories, and sharing key announcements. With over 16,000 partner attendees, it was impossible to speak to everyone, so I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your continued commitment to the Lync business and share some personal highlights from the week.

Our customers are responding very well to our vision and to our product offering. This is creating significant opportunities for partners as they help drive large end-to-end deployments of real time voice and video applications. This is only the beginning. As we continue to lead the industry to the next era of Universal Communications, I believe our partners will have a critical role in helping us transform the...

10x increase in Public Folder limits

Brian Shiers is a technical product manager on the Exchange Team.

We have made investments to scale up the limits for Public Folders in Office 365. Today we are raising the folder count limit to 100,000 folders. This is a 10x increase over the prior limit as defined in the Exchange service description limits. This enables migration of larger existing public folder hierarchies and increased use of the feature in Office 365. Customers can immediately take advantage of this new scale for public folders.

As you scale the number of public folders in the service you might need to keep track of the number of folders. Exchange Online remote PowerShell provides an easy way to see the current public folder count in Office 365. Using the Get-PublicFolder and...

Despite that focus on fun, it’s important to remember that we run a serious business. We’re a rapidly growing Fortune 500 and S&P 500 company with more than 6,000 stores, and we need all our stores to reflect our brand and uphold our high level of service.

To address this feedback, we are announcing the expansion of capabilities for cloud partners under the new Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program, unveiled today at WPC. Partners in this program will be able to directly provision customer subscriptions and provide one monthly bill for both Partner and Microsoft services. They will also directly manage their...

10.9: Update OS without creating a user on a new Mac

This is my take/an update on las_vegas' hint I found here awhile back for running OS updates without creating a user on a Mac. It is applicable to any system 10.5 and up.



This can be helpful if you have a Time Machine backup that's on a newer OS than your install media, or if you're selling/donating your Mac as it saves the new user having to update things.



First things first, wipe your drive (and zero it if you don't trust the end user of this computer) and reinstall your desired OS.



Once your OS is installed, boot to your install media or the Recovery Partition if available. Open Terminal from the Utilities option in the menubar. In the new Terminal window, type the following:

This will bring up the Password Reset utility. Click Macintosh HD or whatever your HDD is called. You'll...

Name Faces in iPhoto efficiently

I've become somewhat obsessed with the faces feature in iPhoto. Currently, I have about 7000 unidentified faces in my library. I knock out a few hundred here and there. It's oddly satisfying, but I go to a lot of large events - events where a lot of people look familiar because they are regulars, but I don't know them. This makes finding faces rather cumbersome, especially since the method of ignoring faces requires the mouse. Everything else can be done with the keyboard. Plus, doesn't track repeatedly ignored faces, so the same faces keep showing up. Well, I've discovered a way to work around these cumbersome limitations.



Doing everything with the keyboard makes things go a lot faster. If you're using the Find Faces feature and skip faces you don't know (because you don't want to pause to use the mouse), the next time you click on Find Faces, you'll be presented with those same unknown faces over and over again. They build up and always get presented in...

Curious about the new app model for Office? This week, Jeremy Chapman is joined by Jeremy Thake to talk about the new app model. They explore the developer options for Office with the building blocks, the object model and application compatibility. Beyond what’s the same, they also explain what is different and demonstrate how new apps are built in Visual Studio.

Prior to joining the Office team at Microsoft, I worked on the Windows team for deployment, imaging and application compatibility. It turns out that application compatibility is one of the biggest stumbling blocks not only for Windows, but also Office and pretty much anything on the desktop and even SharePoint or in some cases Exchange. This week, I’m joined by Jeremy Thake to present the new app model along with core concepts of application compatibility with the old models for all these platforms to explain what is the same, but then we explain what is different with the new app model and what gets...

DeSantis Landscapes: Firm stays nimble, saves 30 to...

DeSantis Landscapes filmed their own Office 365 story on a Nokia Lumia 1020.

DeSantis Landscapes has come a long way from the company that Tony DeSantis founded in 1974 with a wheelbarrow and a lawnmower. Forty years later, the Oregon business has 92 employees, two offices, and customers spanning the state. On the advice of its longtime IT consultant, Compex Two, DeSantis replaced an aging server with Microsoft Office 365 and 20 new computers running the Windows 8.1 operating system. Using Lync Online, employees can meet virtually from wherever they are, using whatever device they have. They can have quick videoconferences, share screens, or pull documents from SharePoint Online to move business along in minutes—versus driving back to the office to meet or to hunt for, change, and email documents. Whether employees are in the office or the field, they’re more efficient, saving up to 30 to 50 hours a week. They’re also better able to transmit the company culture as...

New interactive training for hybrid computing now...

Bill Baer is a technical product manager on the SharePoint team.

Hybrid computing is the intersection between traditional on-premises and cloud computing models. Deploying a hybrid scenario is useful when you need to realize ROI on existing on-premises investments, when you require a bridge between on-premises and cloud to support migration, or if you’re not ready to move to the cloud all at once. We are committed to continued innovation and guidance for those of you who are deploying hybrid scenarios. To demonstrate our commitment, we recently launched new interactive hybrid computing training and introduced new changes to SharePoint that make it easier to work in hybrid environments.

New documentation and training for hybrid computing

We published new interactive courseware to help you understand hybrid topologies and the considerations that come with it. The series of three modules, comprised of 14 presentations, provides an end-to-end, high-level...

Clip the web with me@onenote.com!

We just made it easier than ever to clip the web — now, when you send an email with a URL to me@onenote.com, we’ll clip a screenshot of the webpage along with the email’s contents into your OneNote notebook.

  • Browsing the web on your smartphone? Hit “Share”, pick Email, and send it to me@onenote.com.
  • Find an article in a news reader app? Share it via email and type me@onenote.com.
  • Friend emailed you a funny link? Forward it to me@onenote.com.

To get started, just send an email containing a single URL in the subject or body. And fear not, you can still save your list of “top 100 lasagna recipes” without getting 100 screenshots in your notebook — if you send us an email containing multiple URLs, we’ll only save the mail content and skip the web...

Mod and OneNote sync notes on paper to the cloud

Jon Wheatley is co-founder of Mod

We are excited to announce the new partnership with Mod, a paper notebook that syncs to the cloud. Now you can sync your hand written notes that you take in Mod with OneNote. From a student taking notes in class to a composer writing notes to a song to architect sketching out floor plans, a paper notebook provides a natural place for capturing ideas. OneNote is the one place to bring together those ideas in one digital destination to be organized into a larger portfolio or shared with others. Take a look at the video to see how we are bridging the two worlds:

For some people who are not yet ready to move to an all digital world, nothing beats the tactile feedback of pen and paper, but when it comes to access and storage, digital has many advantages. With Mod and OneNote, you can have the best of both worlds. Take your notes on paper, and then save them forever in the cloud to be accessed...

Dakota Financial: Direct funder reduces the cost of...

Dakota Financial filmed their own Office 365 story on a Nokia Lumia 1020.

Dakota Financial provides funding for equipment leasing to small businesses that cannot obtain traditional financing. It replaced an expensive scanning solution with Microsoft Office 365, SideKick 365 DCM (a SharePoint App from SkyLite Systems), and a scanner from Kodak. Today, the company is saving more than US$14,400 a year in document storage costs. Employees are working more productively by using Office 365 and the SideKick 365 DCM app to automate document uploads to online storage. By streamlining access to more than 1.5 million financial documents, in or out of the office, the new solution saves auditors significant time. It also provides banks with unprecedented transparency into the company’s assets, improving business relationships with lenders. Today, instead of spending hundreds of dollars per extra gigabyte of data, Dakota Financial can grow its business with minimal costs.

In November we announced the addition of Yammer Enterprise to all Office 365 Enterprise plans. And today—to further support our vision—I’m pleased to announce that Yammer Enterprise has been added to all Office 365 Midsize Business and...

Office 365 news round-up

“Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.”  That was the news flash reported by Popular Mechanics in 1949. Twenty-eight years later, on the brink of the PC revolution, Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp. (DEC), a company that manufactured big mainframe computers for business, had another prediction: “There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.”

Trying to predict the future is always tricky. Things change. And when it comes to technology, they often change rapidly. (When Popular Mechanics made its now laughable forecast about the future of computing, neither the transistor nor the microchip had been invented and the march toward...

Improvements to Office 365 in June focused on updates for Lync, such as enhancements to Lync for Mac and Lync Room System, as well as on new OneNote tools, extensions, and partnerships.

Document collaboration made easy

Steve Chew is a senior product marketing manager and Joey Masterson is a senior program manager on the Exchange team.

When people send files as attachments, they’re often looking to collaborate with others and get feedback. Up until now, this has been a cumbersome process. For example, when you email a document to your colleague, she must first download the document to make her edits. Once she’s finished editing the document, she then needs to reattach the file to a new email before sending it back to you. This requires multiple steps and context switches, which can be distracting and time-consuming.

Earlier in the year at the Microsoft Exchange Conference, we announced an enhanced document collaboration experience in Outlook Web App for Office 365 users. Today, we’re thrilled to introduce the first of these enhancements, which aims to improve the way people interact with files as attachments in their email. Now, you will be able to edit a document straight...
