SharePoint Launches Files Restore and New Admin Center

by Tony Redmond

Microsoft announced the Files Restore feature for SharePoint Online on April 22. It's the kind of news we can expect as the SharePoint conference draws near, and it's good news for Office 365 tenants. Some backup vendors might not be so keen as Files Restore makes it a tad harder for them to sell their backups. Small Office 365 tenants also got the news that the new SharePoint Admin Center is becoming the default. The new portal might even be ready soon.

Slack released some integrations for Office (365) on April 9. I took a look and discovered some interesting things about how the Outlook add-in for Slack works (and doesn't work sometimes).
