Microsoft Training Services
On May 21st, Microsoft Training Services were announced. This new feature is set to provide a fully comprehensive experience for people who aren’t quite sure how to use Microsoft 365 to its full potential.
It’s a customised, digital learning service for Windows 10 and Microsoft 365 that helps you to get the very best from this service without having to spend a fortune on training. Up to now, 25 businesses have taken part in the pre-pilot phase.
Microsoft Training Services will include always up-to-date content, helpful metrics on training materials that are needed by users and experiences that are tailored to your business needs. This service will be ready to use in July this year as a pilot.
New Outlook features
As part of Office 365 June updates, to help you better prioritise your tasks and manage your time better, there are new Outlook features across Windows, Mac, web and mobile.
As an example, it’s now much easier to add a new location or meeting for an event on iOS. Outlook will suggest the location for you as you start to type, such as your office or recently used meeting rooms. It can also use your location data to provide you with up-to-date directions and travel details.
What’s more, it will let you know who has responded and agreed to attend to a meeting, which helps you to prioritise accordingly. Along with this, comes an improved time zone function which is great for organising conference calls and meetings in other countries in a ‘time zone-friendly’ manner.
OneDrive and SharePoint
With Office 365 June updates, there’s an improved built-in scan feature for Android mobile app and OneDrive iOS which can now be accessed by an icon in the tab bar.
For added convenience, OneDrive for Business allows automatic uploads for videos and photos, along with a new capacity to set and require passwords for sharing folders or files with others.
SharePoint spaces now also have a mixed-reality experience, meaning you can view content from every angle, helping you to visualise and manipulate data on product models.
Now the new GDPR rules are in full force, Office 365 has many solutions to help you better manage your data which includes: Advanced Data Governance, Data Loss Prevention and Office 365 eDiscovery.
