A new Push-to-Talk experience from Microsoft Teams. As part of the Ignite 2020 conference, Microsoft has introduced a series of exciting new updates to the Microsoft Teams experience. Users can enjoy an updated Microsoft Teams Phones experience, complete with a convenient user interface that fits their schedule. There are also several updates for calling and chatting with Microsoft Teams. One of the interesting newcomers to appear in the Microsoft portfolio this season is the Walkie Talkie app. This handy push-to-talk application provides access to direct communication for the entire team. The app is now available in Android and allows users to communicate quickly and effectively with their teams through the channels in which they are members.
If the OneDrive client is actively syncing files, you’ll see the sync symbol (Image #1) over the OneDrive icon in the notification area. Clicking the OneDrive icon displays a list of files that are in the sync queue. On the device I was dissolving, OneDrive uploaded a series of large media files that had recently been transferred to the local drive. By default, the upload speed of the OneDrive sync client is not limited. In other words, it can saturate your upload bandwidth. If the client syncs small office files, or if a large amount of upload bandwidth is available, the default setting may not be a problem.
In August, we reported that Microsoft is working on a simplified notification experience that makes it easy for users to configure and customize their notification settings. The revamped notification settings page has begun rolling out to users using the desktop and web version of Microsoft Teams, according to the Microsoft 365 Roadmap. The newly designed notification settings section offers many customization options, such as email, sound, teams and channel, chat, meetings, people, and others. Interestingly enough, one of the main highlights of this release is the new Teams and Channel section. Allows users to choose from two teams and channel notifications presets, including “All Activities” and “Mentions and Replies.”
Using Microsoft 365 means that a large percentage of your business data, from emails to spreadsheets, is hosted in the Microsoft cloud. The Microsoft cloud platform is incredibly secure in itself, but it’s up to YOU to manage your own environment in that cloud! Here’s the good news: The Microsoft 365 platform has numerous built-in security features that, if configured and maintained correctly, can protect your business from cyber thieves. Let’s look at the controls you need to deploy in your Microsoft 365 platform.
Microsoft Lists is the latest offering in the Microsoft 365 package. It has been touted as “Smart Information Tracking” for data from sources such as inventory events. However, the concept of lists is something that has existed in the Microsoft domain for some time through SharePoint. Therefore, this application may interest you if you are an IT administrator working in an environment where SharePoint lists are widely used. On the other hand, if you are someone who wants to organize and track information quickly, this article is still important to you.
Microsoft announced Stream 2.0, a major revamp of the Stream video portal, in the What’s New for Microsoft Stream and Video in Microsoft 365 at the Virtual Ignite 2020 Conference. The big news is that Stream is moving its video storage from the Stream Azure-based storage service to SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. The move starts with recordings of Teams meetings in October (learn more in What’s New for Teams Meetings).
Chat services cannot be disabled. Unlike social media accounts that you can deactivate for a short (or longer) period of time, a chat service will continue to work even if you’re logged out. Your colleagues or friends will see that you’re offline, but even then they can send messages. This applies to all types of chat services and apps, whether they’re used for work or personal communication. If you no longer want to receive messages for a particular service, there’s not much you can do. If you don’t plan to use the service, it’s reasonable to delete the account, but if you’re taking a break or day off, an out-of-office message is the right choice.
Guest access is disabled by default. As a Microsoft 365 or Office 365 administrator, you must enable guest access for Teams before the administrator or team owners can add guests. To enable guest access, work with guests in a team.
The Windows 10 operating system comes with built-in OneDrive support, allowing users to sync files and folders to the cloud storage platform. This makes it easy to share files from your computer with your friends, family, or colleagues with OneDrive, as well as set up access control.
