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.
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😉.
