I am speaking at SharePoint Saturday Warsaw 2018

I am excited to be speaking at SharePoint Saturday Warsaw for the first time. Hereby my session:

Modern Collaboration in Teams & Projects with Office 365
Level: 100
Track: End-User, Business
Office 365 is the collaboration toolkit for businesses. We can choose between SharePoint Team Sites, Outlook Groups, Yammer Groups and Microsoft Teams. Choice can be good but doesn’t necessarily make our lives easier. Jasper Oosterveld, Microsoft MVP & Modern Workplace Consultant, is going to take you on a 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.

Office 365 Updates

Office 365 Update: SharePoint Online hub sites

We are releasing SharePoint Online hub sites, a new building block of the intranet. SharePoint Online hub sites bring together related sites to roll up news and activity, to simplify search, and to create cohesion with shared navigation and look-and-feel.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 21036.

How does this affect me?
SharePoint hub sites enable you to organize your intranet by associating multiple team sites and communication sites together. This is an optional feature that has no effect on the user experience unless hub sites are created.

You can use SharePoint Online hub sites in Office 365 to organize concepts, teams, divisions, or resources throughout your organization. With this feature, you will be able to create one or more hub sites by converting an existing modern team site or communication site into a hub site by using Microsoft PowerShell, or you can create a brand new modern site and start from there. After a hub site is created, admin-approved site owners can associate existing team sites and communication sites to the hub site.

When this feature is made available to your organization, you will be able to convert existing sites into hub sites by using the SharePoint Online Management Shell (PowerShell for SharePoint in Office 365), and the following cmdlet: Register -SPOHubSite https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/Communications – (where ‘Communications’ is the existing site you would like to convert into a hub site).

Complete documentation of PowerShell instructions will be published when we begin initial rollout to Targeted Release.

We’ll be gradually rolling this out to Targeted Release organizations in late March and we anticipate rollout completion to all organizations by mid-May.

Office 365 Updates

Office 365 Update: SharePoint Online news digest Email

SharePoint Online news digest email is a new Office 365 feature. We’ll begin rolling this feature out in the next few days.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 21047.

How does this affect me?
Users will be able to quickly create a clean news digest by selecting the desired news articles they wish to roll up into a consolidated Email to be sent to the users/groups of their choosing. The news articles appear as article previews with thumbnails and a glimpse at the body text of each article with links to take a reader to the full article.

We’ll be gradually rolling this out to Targeted Release organizations in mid-March, and we anticipate rollout completion in the coming months.
