with 0 Comments by

Planner now supports guest user access to its plans. Office 365 tenants will celebrate this feature because they’ve been waiting for it to arrive. It’s curious that it has taken Microsoft so long to upgrade Planner for this feature given that Groups and Teams have had this capability for a while. But it’s here now, so enjoy.

Consumers Gain from Enterprise-Class Office 365 Features

Outlook.com (premium) now boasts two new protected email features taken directly from Exchange Online. It’s an example of how the shared Office 365 infrastructure enables Microsoft to make functionality available to users of its consumer and enterprise platforms as they want. OneDrive Restore is another example. In both cases, the features aren’t available to free seats.

How Planner Synchronizes its Tasks to Outlook’s Calendar

Many Office 365 tenants use Planner for group-based task management. Generally, the application is OK and has been getting better. Now it can connect to Outlook to synchronize tasks into a user calendar, which then allows users to see tasks alongside their other commitments and print details off if needed. It’s an imperfect but acceptable solution to the lack of print capabilities within Planner.

GDPR comes into force on May 25, 2018. To help Office 365 tenant administrators respond to GDPR data subject requests, a new DSR case feature is available as a preview in the Security and Compliance Center. The feature is based on the existing eDiscovery case and content search functionality, so it should be very familiar to anyone who has searched Office 365 for email, documents, and other information.

Boost in SharePoint Storage Allocation to Move Data to the Cloud

Microsoft has boosted the per-user storage allocation for SharePoint Online by 20x to make it easier for people to move data to Office 365. It’s a good move, and one that’s probably overdue. Teams and Office 365 Groups have accelerated the use of SharePoint over the last year or so. However, Exchange also increased its storage allocation and that hasn’t got everyone to the cloud. Yet.
