As of yesterday, IE 11 is no longer supported for using Microsoft Teams on the web. Please remember this is just the beginning of the IE 11 deprecation cycle within Microsoft 365’s products and on August 17th, 2021 Microsoft 365 apps will not support IE 11 in any way. Now that we have your attention, we will be delving into an unwelcome feature delay in Teams, a couple interesting SharePoint related updates, giving Planner so much deserved love as well as a much requested “comeback” feature in Teams regarding meeting experiences.Read more

In this month’s post we highlight a few of the Microsoft 365 announcements at Ignite along with some nice features coming to Teams and SharePoint in the upcoming month.
