It’s been a while since we covered SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, and some major improvements have arrived. The new group-backed team sites are now available, including a preview of the ODFB admin portal and conditional access. Here are important additions to restricting user access and securing external collaboration.
Over the past few months, some significant improvements have been made around the external sharing functionality in Office 365. Some other very important features were introduced as well. The marketing teams at Microsoft, however, were more focused on getting the message for the new and improved OneDrive for Business (ODB) client out, so no big announcements or press focused on these sharing improvements. With that in mind, I decided to do a quick recap to put together an updated list of important improvements that everyone should at least know about.
Congratulations to all the 2015 Exchange Oscar winners this week! What better way to celebrate than with your weekly Exchange and Office 365 fix?

In this video, Justin Harris explains what these groups look like from a technical perspective, walks you through the features and benefits and offers a look at the administrative options available. Click here to read more.
