Todd and Shane talk about how to use passwords with PowerShell securely, a new SharePoint Online Web Part that is rolling out, new security and risk features in Office 365, how Power BI finally integrates with SharePoint, and Imposter Syndrome.
Microsoft introduced the Safe Attachments feature as part of its Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) offering in 2015. ATP is an option for Exchange Online Protection (EOP). It is included in the Office 365 E5 plan and can be licensed as an add-on for $2/user per month for other Office 365 plans. Now Safe Attachments can handle dynamic delivery and the improvement is noticeable.
Microsoft has moved 400 million Outlook.com mailboxes to an Office 365 infrastructure. Outlook.com mailboxes are now powered by Exchange Online and exploit other parts of the infrastructure like EOP. It’s a good change from a engineering and economic perspective.
This week, Todd and Shane discuss a top 10 list of intranets that SharePoint dominates, some features and announcements for SharePoint Online, new PowerShell cmdlets for SharePoint Online, and how to make PowerShell easier to use if you are on Windows 7 or 8.
Microsoft has intensified its competition with Slack by making the Teams platform more attractive for developers. New Bots and deep link capabilities are now available. Meantime, Microsoft also says that they will enable Teams for all Office 365 business tenants.

Teams and Planner are excellent examples of new functionality that Microsoft can create using the toolkit of parts that exist within Office 365.

Microsoft offers Office 365 administrators the opportunity to measure the security of their tenant against standard benchmarks set by Microsoft. Despite some glitches, the Secure Score service is a worthwhile and useful tool.
Microsoft has announced that they will block Office 365 tenants from creating workload-specific searches from July 2017. Instead of using Exchange Online and SharePoint Online, you have to create content searches and eDiscovery cases through the Security and Compliance Center. It’s a good change, even with the complication of keeping old searches until they expire.
Beginning in March 2017, SharePoint site owners will no longer be able to create new site mailboxes. Existing site mailboxes will function until they are replaced by something else.
Background processing usually remains hidden from end users. No need exists for a user to understand what maintenance goes on under the covers of the service. Office 365 delivers service with no fuss to its users, but recently I have noticed some instances when background processes have made themselves felt. Although these are not serious issues, they are a worrying sign of a lack of attention to detail.
