On Friday a co-worker indicated that they had added some comments to a Word document I created in one of our MS Teams. The following Tuesday morning, using the MS Teams Desktop Application, I went to the team to review the comments but noticed something a bit weird, the modified information hadn’t changed. It was still showing as last modified by me over a week ago. I’m typically a good “techie” and keep my stuff up to date, shut down my machine every night and I’m regularly in the MS Teams application and never noticed this. A bit perplexed, I opened the document in Word and sure enough the comments my co-worker added were there, but she hadn’t changed anything else, she just added comments.

With a little over 6 weeks to go until Ignite and the Business Application Summit last month we are sure to be getting some new features and enhancements galore over the next couple months. As an FYI: Microsoft has made most of, if not all the Business Applications Summit sessions available on demand. If you’re thinking about how your organization can take advantage of the Microsoft Power Platform (Power BI, PowerApps, Flow and Dynamics 365) it’s worth looking through the sessions.
Recently we were asked by a client to develop a MS Flow that creates a sub site when users enter a new item into a SharePoint list. What we found was there’s no simple, out of the box way to have the new sub site inherit the top navigation of the parent site. As a result, we needed to create an Azure Function to preform this function. Continue reading “MS Flow and Azure: Creating Parent and Sub sites”
Administrators of Office 365 be warned…the Teams/Skype for Business migrations are going to be coming and you need to start being proactive sooner rather than later. Most of us have already got the “Teams & Skype” admin center but we can still utilize the Services & add-ins section to manage tenant wide settings we don’t have access to in the new admin center. As you may have already guessed that’s going to be changing, quickly. Continue reading “MS Teams and Skype for Business transition is coming: Are you ready?”
Postman is an incredibly useful tool for testing API’s. I’ve been using it for a few years now and have found some features that make it a breeze to work with when it comes to secured API’s. It’s good for handling different environments as well.

I recently had the opportunity to write a Xamarin app for the first time. It wasn’t anything complicated – basically a CRUD application that would list items for the user with the option to add, edit and delete – but it afforded me a chance to compare and contrast with the way I’ve been writing mobile apps for the past few years.

It’s been another busy month for Office 365 updates. Many of the updates that rolled out were ahead of schedule which can be nice for folks that were waiting on a specific update to implement a solution. However, it’s nice when the Office 365 Roadmap is accurate😊.
Microsoft 365 Admin Center
This one’s been in the pipeline for some time but if you haven’t checked it out yet be prepared for some changes. Content is still very similar so it’s not a terribly difficult adjustment but anything with Administration rights in Office 365 should get familiar with the new layout sooner rather than later at https://admin.microsoft.com.
