Microsoft Ignite is right around the corner (3/2/2021 – 3/4/2021) and it is a virtual conference again this year. Head over to MyIgnite to get your sessions lined up ASAP as many of the sessions have limited “seating” available. As was the case last year there is no cost associated with attending so there is no reason to site this one out.
In this month’s post we are focusing a lot on the “big 3” of modern collaboration in Microsoft 365: Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive. We do highlight a welcome update coming to Planner as well and a note about Outlook, but even that is related to SharePoint and OneDrive. What is really piquing our interest this month though is finding out what big news comes out of Ignite😉.
After skipping our January post, we are back in action…welcome to 2021 all. It is an exciting and busy holiday season for our team as Interactive Business Systems was acquired by The Planet Group and we are now part of the Planet Technology team. We are truly looking forward to growing with the Planet Technology team.
Back to the business at hand…In this edition of What’s New we cover a few Teams announcements, a huge SharePoint enhancement (at least in our opinion) and a PowerPoint feature worth checking out. That is right, we are covering a PowerPoint feature which is likely surprising to anyone that really knows our team as our disdain for PowerPoint is probably very visible. However, this PowerPoint feature makes a ton of sense as it relates to a topic near and dear to my heart, coaching😉.
Interactive Business Systems is now Planet Technology. Looking for a new job? We work with some of the biggest names in tech, and we’re hiring! Check out our open jobs and make your next career move with Planet.
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.
