One common request when performing an eDiscovery or using the Search-Mailbox cmdlet has long been the option to search a specific folder only. Possible scenarios for such requests are to delete/purge items from a (sub)folder or copy them to a different mailbox, etc. Similarly, an “exclude folder” functionality can sometimes be useful. With the latest additions to the service, we are now able to scope eDiscovery/Content searches to specific mailbox, SharePoint or OneDrive for Business folders!
Customers that have the First Release option turned on within their tenants were treated to a welcome surprise this weekend. Additional Groups features!
The file repository section within my Groups has been upgraded with new SharePoint document library functionality. In reviewing the updates, I found there are four distinct features that add tremendous value to the Groups value proposition.
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.
Earlier this week, Tony Redmond wrote about Jeffrey Snover – also known as the godfather of PowerShell – being promoted to Technical Fellow at Microsoft; one of the highest achievable ranks.
Given that Jeffrey is considered to be the founding father of PowerShell, that does not really come as a surprise, as PowerShell has changed the way we work and interact with systems. And this does not only apply to large-scale environments or cloud solutions like Office 365.
With IT/DEV Connections less than two weeks out, I found myself getting anxious to attend these insightful sessions.
The conference, which happens to be one of my favorites, has many advantages: It’s not as hectic as Ignite, and the smaller crowd gives you the opportunity to interact with all the great speakers. As usual, it's held in Las Vegas from September 14 – 17 in the beautiful Aria hotel. It doesn’t get much better than that!
