January 2020 Update Available for Office 365 for IT Pros

Fifteen Chapters Updated

Returning to normal service after the holiday season, the Office 365 for IT Pros writing team is pleased to announce the release of the sixth update for the Office 365 for IT Pros (2020 Edition) eBook. The update is dated 6 January 2020. Subscribers can download the updated EPUB and PDF files from Gumroad.com while Kindle readers can update their books from Amazon. See our FAQ for more information about the update process.

Although Microsoft shut down for the holidays and froze the code deployed inside Office 365, we still had plenty to cover due to software changes released during December. As always, we learned more about Office 365 and incorporated these tips and insights into the text. Among the changes are:

  • How Exchange Online auto-processes updates for calendar meetings.
  • The new OneDrive for Business Request Files feature.
  • The lack of a sync control in the Outlook for Mac client.
  • Using Sensitivity Labels to classify Office 365 Groups, Teams, and sites.
  • How Sensitivity Labels can block guest access to sensitive groups.
  • Final details and dates for the migration from Office 365 Video to Stream.
  • Citrix and VMware announcements that affect Teams Meetings.
  • PDF support for Office 365 Message Encryption.

As a result, 15 of the 24 content chapters are updated in this release. Full details of the changes are available in the book’s change log.

Working on the February 2020 Update

Now that everyone is back to work, we expect a further set of software changes and new features to appear during January. We’ll cover these in the February update, which we expect to release on February 3.

As always, we’d like subscribers to download and use the updated content. We update it to make sure that you have the latest information. It would be a pity to let that effort go to waste.
