As usual, we are still seeing a flood of new features and other announcements as a result of Microsoft’s Ignite Conference. We have done our best to curate a handful of the most interesting or impactful ones. Before we dig in, just another reminder that SharePoint 2010 workflows are no longer functioning as of November 1, 2020 AND Teams will no longer be supporting IE 11 after November 30, 2020.
This month we have a few new things happening in Teams: virtual break out rooms, transfer meetings between devices, and meeting recordings now saving to OneDrive and SharePoint; a couple SharePoint announcements: new required properties for SharePoint pages and personal search query history; and one tidbit for Forms: choose specific users/groups to respond to forms.
The Microsoft Teams team dropped a lot of great updates this month and at the time of writing this up they have launched 118 feature enhancements/updates in 2020 per the Microsoft 365 Roadmap. You can check out some of the recent ones in the roadmap link but with Microsoft Teams getting so much press we decided to focus our update on SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and the big announcement for everyone regarding Internet Explorer 11 support moving forward that makes almost every developer smile😉.
This month we will be pointing out a couple messages Microsoft really, really wants us to pay attention to as well as few great SharePoint Online features coming soon. You may notice a lack of Teams focused messages this month but don’t worry…there is still quite a bit of Teams goodness in the pipeline on the roadmap😉.
