I am speaking at Office 365 Engage 2017

I am excited to be speaking at Office 365 Engage in beautiful Haarlem. My sessions are as following:

The Intranet Is Dead! Long Live the Modern Workplace

SharePoint & Intranet Portals have been tied together since the release of SharePoint 2007. We have been building extensive, heavy branded and overly customized Intranet Portals for businesses worldwide. Result? Abandoned Intranet Portals, raising costs for maintenance and configuration and a lot of frustration. What does matter at the end of the day? Productivity tools to make business users lives easier, efficient, fun and more productive. What do companies want at the end of the day? To provide formal and static information. The solution? The Modern Workplace empowered by Office 365. Join Jasper Oosterveld, Microsoft MVP and Cloud Consultant, how he lays down his vision and experience around the Modern Workplace.

Modern Collaboration in Teams & Projects Powered by Office 365

Office 365 is the collaboration toolkit for businesses. We can choose between SharePoint, Office 365 Groups, Yammer and Microsoft Teams. Choice can be good but doesn’t necessarily make our lives easier. Jasper Oosterveld, Microsoft MVP & Cloud Consultant, is going to take you on a 75 minute journey through the Office 365 collaboration landscape. After this session, you have a clear understanding of the different tools and how these connect with each other. Making a choice has become a little bit easier.

Getting the Most Out of Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a new member of the Office 365 Collaboration toolkit. Jasper Oosterveld (Microsoft MVP & Cloud Consultant) is going to take you on a 20 minute journey, how to get the most out of Microsoft Teams. The goal: Learning how Microsoft Teams increases the fun and efficiency for collaboration scenario’s.

Microsoft Stream: The Future of Video

Office 365 Video Portal step aside! Microsoft Stream is here and is reclaiming its spot as the future of video within Office 365. Jasper Oosterveld (Microsoft MVP & Collaboration Consultant) is going to talk about the following topics: What is Microsoft Stream? What are the difference with Office 365 Video Portal and how can you transition towards Stream? After these 20 minutes you will know all the ins & outs of Microsoft Stream!

Updates

Office 365 Update: New Office 365 Profile Card Experience

We’re rolling out a major update to the Office 365 profile card experience. You’ll begin seeing this change today in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint.

How does this affect me?

We’re overhauling the profile card experience to enhance the way users collaborate with colleagues and external contacts. You can access the new profile cards by hovering over the names of people from your organization that appear in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online and selecting the ‘See more’ link at the bottom of the floating card.

We’ll be gradually rolling this out to First Release customers starting today. This roll out will be completed by the end of April.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change. Please click Additional Information to learn more.

Updates

Office 365 Update: Office 365 Groups invite to join

We are introducing a new feature for group users to create an invite link for any group they are part of and share it with others.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 71997.

How does this affect me?

The invite link can be emailed or can be copied and pasted to any other channels. The users who click on this invite link will join the public group automatically and will join private groups on approval from group owners.

This feature is available only on Outlook on Web.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

You don’t need to do anything. Please click Additional Information to learn more.

Updates

Office 365 update: Auto creation of Direct Reports group in Outlook

To help managers collaborate more effectively with their employees, we will automatically create Office 365 Groups containing the manager’s direct reports. Managers can easily update, delete, or modify the group at any time.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 78174.

How does this affect me?

Beginning April 13th , 2017 We will automatically create direct reports groups in Outlook (leveraging the Office 365 Groups Service) for eligible managers.

If you have Office 365 Groups disabled for your tenant, or if the manager in question doesn’t have permission to create groups, then no group will be created.
What do I need to prepare for this change?

If you are looking forward to this, there is no action you need to take. Get yourself familiar with Office 365 Groups, update your user training, and notify your helpdesk, as needed.

If you would like to leave Office 365 Groups enabled for your organization but turn off direct reports groups creation, we have provided controls to enable and disable. Please click Additional Information to learn more.

Office 365 Updates

Office 365 Update: Microsoft Teams is now on-by-default

As we communicated last month, in MC93471, we are turning Microsoft Teams on-by-default at the organization level, for all eligible users with the appropriate license assignment. Microsoft Teams is now on-by-default.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 61652.

How does this affect me?

The ‘Turn Microsoft Teams on or off for your entire organization’ setting in ‘Settings > Services and Add-ins > Microsoft Teams’, went from a default value of “off” to a default value of “on”.

Microsoft Teams is now available to all eligible users with the appropriate license assignment. You can continue to manage user access to Microsoft Teams via license assignments.

If you have explicitly removed the Teams license for a specific user, they will not have access to Teams when we make this change.
