Update #80 for World’s Best eBook Covering Office 365 and the Microsoft 365 Ecosystem
Drafting the announcement of yet another monthly update for the Office 365 for IT Pros eBook and making the text interesting and different is a real challenge. After 80 monthly updates, seven of which are for the 2022 edition, you could say that we know how to process monthly updates. And we do. Every month. Each month throws up its own set of challenges, from authors being late submitting their chapter changes, to Word having a meltdown, or the OneDrive sync client becoming mildly confused. We suffer from the same minor crises that other Microsoft 365 users endure as we grapple with the cloud. But we persist and get the update done, which (boringly enough) has just happened (again).
The February 2022 update for Office 365 for IT Pros (2022 edition) is now available for subscribers of the EPUB/PDF version to download from their Gumroad.com account or by using the download link in the receipt received by email after subscribing. Amazon Kindle subscribers can ask Amazon to release the update to your account. See our FAQ for more details about downloading monthly updates.
About the Change Log
Changes made in the February 2022 update for Office 365 for IT Pros are described in the change log. We don’t note every edit, addition, or deletion across the 24 chapters, so the change log is more like a set of highlights rather than a comprehensive page-by-page notation of changes. For instance, we don’t usually note the fact when we remove text that we consider outdated, which happens all the time because of the way change occurs across Microsoft 365. We also don’t note tweaks made to text to improve its readability or to emphasize an important point, perhaps because someone has pointed out that we should (we love getting feedback from readers).
Although we do try to note the most important updates, life is too short for generating a tremendously detailed change log for a 650,000-word book, and we also doubt if people would read a very detailed change log. Suffice to say that more happens in a monthly update than meets the eye or gets written down.
Please Download and Use the Update
Which is one reason why we’d like subscribers to download and use the most recent text. You’ve paid us to deliver the most comprehensive and up-to-date material we can produce, so you deserve to take advantage of that content. Every month, we receive questions from Office 365 for IT Pros readers who cite information from an outdated version. Just like the Exchange development group have little sympathy for people who don’t install recent cumulative updates for on-premises Exchange servers, we don’t like getting questions already answered in available updates. In fact, it’s a little depressing, so please download and use the February 2022 update. We’d appreciate it if you do.
