We all store lots of information in the cloud and sometimes it is hard to find work that needs to be resumed or finished. OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online now boast the ability to mark files and folders for later. The two apps share a common list and make it easy for users to find work that they need to return to.
Microsoft Teams will soon offer users the chance to engage with an exploratory experience to see what Teams is all about. The new experience replaces the previous 1-year trial offer. Office 365 tenant admins who don’t want users to test software can disable the ability to sign up for trial apps and services in the Office 365 Admin Center.
Microsoft Teams now supports roles for meetings. You can assign the presenter role to specific participants, who then have rights to present and other actions, like recording the meeting. Everyone who’s not a presenter is an attendee. These folk stay nice and quiet and listen to what’s going on and all the good information shared by the presenters.
Microsoft Stream now has the ability to trim content from the start and end of videos. The feature is very easy to use and is a good way to remove the seconds of lead-in often captured in recordings. Only the start and end of videos can be trimmed as there’s no capability to remove content from the middle of recordings.
The Office 365 Admin Center is a critical tool for tenant admins. Recently, Microsoft has improved the management of role assignments by providing a way to compare what different roles can do. The idea is that if you know exactly what a role enables people to do, you’re less likely to assign the wrong role to the wrong people.
