The news that Microsoft will make mailbox auditing the default in Exchange Online is very welcome, as is the new mechanism they plan to use. Microsoft won’t get the new feature rolled out across Office 365 until the end of 2018, so there’s still a gap to fill to make sure that audit records are gathered for mailbox activity.
A free version of Teams is now available and it’s pretty good. Up to 300 users, free storage, and lots of functionality – and a phantom Office 365 tenant (or so it seems). The nice people at Slack might not like what they see, but there’s fierce competition to secure the hearts and minds of those who choose to collaborate using a free platform.
Microsoft made a mistake in their provisioning process for Exchange Online shared mailboxes, so lots of mailboxes have 100 GB quotas. Things are changing now and new shared mailboxes will have 50 GB quotas, unless you license them. Here’s how to check the status of your shared mailboxes.
Recent news (or FUD) about an “undocumented” Office 365 API got the security world in a tizzy, but in reality it’s likely just part of the Graph. What’s more important is to help tenant administrators understand how to harden their tenant against Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks. As it turns out, there are many different things you can do, if you want to.

Upgrading, even for the best of environments, always has a surprise or two in store, even for the most vigilant admin. Getting a good idea what’s going on in your farm right now is one of the best things you can do to improve your changes of a successful, less stressful upgrade when SharePoint 2019 comes around.
Office 365 generates lots of audit data. Some of the data seems a little strange, and we need some help to understand it. Office 365 Cloud App Security helps, but at a considerable cost. Do you need the extra insight provided by Cloud App Security? That’s a decision you must make.
If you use Office 365 Video today, you will use Stream in the future. The migration is happening – slowly. But when it does, you can use Office 365 Groups to organize videos into mini-portals and take advantage of some interesting “intelligent” features to better use content in videos. The only downside is that you’ll have to pay a little more.
This month’s updates cover some GDPR stuff, Teams reminding me that it is important, and some other fun tidbits. Good news for you? I kept the snark to a minimum. You are welcome.
ow do you create InfoPath repeating tables with PowerApps? The answer is you use some really fancy, customized galleries.
Microsoft Teams has introduced a way for Office 365 tenants to archive teams. Basically you set the team to be read-only, a status that affects conversations and files. However, it doesn’t stop team members having read-write access to other group resources, like Planner or Power BI.
Office 365 Groups and Teams support guest users, who enjoy full access to the SharePoint document libraries. You might not want this, because not every document in those libraries are suitable for sharing with guests. The question is how to collaborate with guests while maintaining some control over information. Rights management seems like a good way to accomplish the task.
Lots happens in a month within Office 365. I can’t possibly write an article about every change in SharePoint, Teams, Exchange, etc. released by Microsoft,, so sometimes I need to publish a catch-up (or catch-up) post. Here are ten things that I think are interesting enough for you to know about.
