Getting the most from Microsoft Office 365 means staying on top of the latest updates and developments. Microsoft shows no signs of slowing down and has added a number of features to the Office 365 productivity suite.
The Whiteboard app is now generally available on Windows 10. This handy tool means that users will be able to create whiteboards for notes, sharing ideas as they grow and develop. Each whiteboard is saved to the cloud, so that users and colleagues can access it on any device, any where.
Improved OneDrive Activity Centre
OneDrive's Activity Centre now includes vital battery-saving features for Windows devices – pausing the sync when your device enters low power mode.
Nudges for MyAnalytics
MyAnalytics is a great tool to aid your time management and can now let you know when you need to set aside time and remind you to keep on track with certain tasks. It's extremely useful for those attending loads of meetings, helping to balance work, emails and to-do lists.
Filters and splicers for Power BI
Now, filters and splicers can be applied to report sharing on Power BI. This saves you from having to explain a configuration or take screenshots when you share a report – it will display correctly every time.
You can now create and deliver your own live event using the aptly named, Live Events; now coming to Yammer, Microsoft Teams, and Microsoft Stream.
