Office 365 Update: OneDrive for Business Files Restore

OneDrive for Business Files Restore is a new Office 365 feature. If your organization’s OneDrive files get deleted, corrupted, or infected by malware, with the File Restore feature, you may be able to restore your entire OneDrive to a previous time. Files Restore helps you undo all the actions that occurred on both files and folders within the last 30 days.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 23758.

How does this affect me?
Files Restore lets you restore your OneDrive for Business to a previous time within the last 30 days. It helps you undo all the actions that occurred on both files and folders using existing features, such as version history and recycle bin. You can continue to use version history and recycle bin to restore individual files today.

We will begin rolling this feature out at the end of January, and we expect to complete the rollout by mid-February.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
You don’t need to do anything, but you may consider updating your user training and notifying your helpdesk.

Office 365 Update: Bulk metadata editing

Bulk metadata editing is a new SharePoint Online feature in Office 365. We’ll begin rolling this feature out in the next few days.
How does this affect me?
This feature allows you to edit the metadata of several items at once by selecting those items in the modern list view, and using the details pane to edit their metadata.

We’ll be gradually rolling this out to Targeted Release customers on January 17th, and the roll out will be completed by the end of January.
