Microsoft 365 Updates Feb

From Teams to Outlook and Yammer, new Microsoft 365 updates bring you enhancements for sharing, swifter data-finding, staff training and compliance. Find out more:

First line in Teams front line

Already established as one of the best-loved tools within Microsoft 365, there's now even more to love about Microsoft Teams. A new Shifts feature now replaces the current StaffHub and lets first line managers create working schedules, edit them and share them with their staff. First line workers can also use the feature to see their work schedules, notify managers of their availability or request time off.

Where Outlook meets LinkedIn

There's now extra functionality for Outlook applications thanks to an update which lets you hover over a contacts name in Outlook and automatically previews the contact's LinkedIn profile — making professional connections quicker and easier to establish.

Post-training surveys made simple

You can now send out post-training surveys to help assess the effectiveness of programmes as soon as the training is over thanks to the integration of Microsoft Forms within Microsoft Stream. And there's even better news for Microsoft Stream — its new integration with PowerPoint lets you embed rich video content into presentations to keep audiences engaged.

Yammer sharing

One innovative update now lets Yammer users include any Yammer conversation from a user, group or home feed onto almost any SharePoint page, article or site, making Yammer conversations truly and fully interactive

Compliance takes center stage

New online security and data privacy updates for Microsoft 365 now include a Compliance Center. This innovative feature makes it easy for compliance professionals working in Microsoft 365 to carry out risk assessments and protect sensitive data.
