Microsoft is working on a new tool that will make it easier to collaborate on large sets of data and it is currently testing this tool with a select group of Office 365 users.

Microsoft StaffHub is a new Office 365 application built from bits of Office 365 Groups, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Azure, and Teams. The concept is simple – provide an application to allow the schedules of workers to be managed through a combination of browser and mobile interfaces.

Todd Klindt and Shane Young discuss PowerShell, SharePoint Online boundaries, using WAN accelerators, and then about a million more Microsoft random notes, including events and Azure training on their SharePoint Podcast.
It’s impossible for an email hygiene service like Exchange Online Protection (EOP) to suppress every possible piece of malware that attempts to penetrate Office 365. Even the broad array of anti-malware techniques will let some small percentage of spam through. Email administrators need to be on guard all the time.
