The Planner iOS app now supports the ability to share items like tweets, Facebook posts, and web links and create them as new tasks in plans. It’s a very useful feature announced in the Planner blog, but never highlighted to Office 365 tenants in a Message Center notification.
Many PowerShell modules are available for Office 365 applications. Keeping them up to date can be a pain, so here’s a PowerShell script to automate the task. Using the latest modules means that you can access new and updated cmdlets, which might make all the difference to your scripts.
The standard Teams search function can unearth a lot of information in chats and channels. Using filters, precision searches, and contextual searches makes it easier to find what you need, even if you might have to learn some new tricks. But life is full of new experiences, and so is search.
You can now enable noise suppression for Stream videos during the original upload or afterwards. Speech is isolated from background sounds to make it clearer and more distinct. You can apply noise suppression to lots of different videos, but you can’t to Teams meeting recordings because noise suppression is already done for those videos.
Teams meeting organizers can download a participant report to note who attends a meeting and when they were present. If you forget to download a report while the meeting is active, you’ll have to make up the attendance roster, and that would be a bad thing.
Because it sits on top of so many Microsoft 365 components, Teams is easily the hardest Office 365 workload to backup. You can try to backup Teams by copying its compliance records stored in Exchange Online, but that’s only a partial (and bad) solution that utterly fails to take the full spectrum of Teams data into account.
Many migration projects use Exchange Web Services (EWS) to move data to Exchange Online. EWS is using throttled to preserve resources. Here’s how to lift the restrictions for up to 90 days, all without going near a support call.
A few days after buying the Surface Earbuds, I am returning them to Microsoft. Poor sound and an uncomfortable fit in my ear mean that I’m reverting to my old Bose QC20 headphones, even though they have their own problems. The promised integration with Microsoft 365 applications isn’t worth the paper it’s written on, which is another reason for the Earbuds to go back.
