Read below to find out some of the new features added to Office 365:
On May 21st, Microsoft announced Microsoft Training Services, a digital, customized learning service for Office 365 and Windows 10. The training is designed to help customers leverage learning to transform their organizations without investing heavily in training and change management resources.
To date, 25 organizations have participated in the pre-pilot phase, helping to develop and test the service, which includes:
• Customizable, always up-to-date content,
• Experiences right-sized to an organization’s needs, and
• Metrics on training materials users consume and the types of custom playlists they create and share.
New Outlook features across Windows, Mac, web, and mobile, help you manage your time and keep what matters most front and center.
Do you collaborate with people in different time zones?
Outlook team has added more time zone functionality. In Windows, you can now display up to three time zones in your calendar grid. Just click on File, then Options, then on the Calendar section. Under Time Zones, you can add whichever Time Zones you would like to see.
Windows Title Bar:
The Title Bar has been a fixture in the Windows interface since the first version released to manufacturing 32 years ago. Title bar functionality in Office 365 has taken a huge leap forward in the name of productivity improvement.
Click on the title bar and a new drop-down enables you to take several actions, including:
• quickly re-name the current document,
• open the document’s location,
• share the document via an invitation or a link, and
• quickly access the document’s version history.
On May 25th of this year, enforcement began on a European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation, better known as GDPR.
This law imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union, or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents, regardless of where the organization is physically located.
One essential step to meeting the GDPR obligations is discovering and controlling what personal data the organization holds and where it resides. Many Office 365 solutions can help you identify and manage access to personal data, including:
• Data Loss Prevention,
• Advanced Data Governance,
• Office 365 eDiscovery, and
• Customer Lockbox.
