This month, we are going to cover the SharePoint announcement with a little summertime flare.
SharePoint continues to be awesome and Microsoft continues to make cool investments. Check out this month’s news and highlights.
Microsoft might be working on a free version of Teams to take on Slack.

In today’s Ask the Admin, Russell Smith shows you how you can manage the new OneDrive Files On-Demand feature in the Fall Creators Update.
Microsoft Workplace Analytics is not a “Fitbit for the enterprise” that you can deploy off-the-shelf to get instantly usable information. Expect to invest considerable time or spend some consulting dollars to make sense of organization dynamics, office politics, and internal friction. All the stuff that makes working in large companies so worthwhile!
Microsoft has announced that they are bringing back one of their most requested features, placeholders for OneDrive and SharePoint.
Todd Klindt and Shane Young discuss OneDrive for Business SharePoint Sync, the SharePoint Migration Assistant Tool (SMAT) for SharePoint 2013 and how it can help you evaluate your move to Office 365, and Shane gushes over his first use of the FindTime feature.
Microsoft is updating OneDrive for Business with several new features and is also adding a stand-alone Mac application.
Todd Klindt and Shane Young provide a weekly update on SharePoint DSC, Calendar.Help, OneDrive updates, Star Wars, and more. Very random, very fun.
Microsoft has a patchy history with offline synchronization for its OneDrive platform. The new synchronization client in Windows 10 is a big improvement, and it was recently announced at Ignite that a preview of the client now provides support for synchronizing SharePoint libraries, which will eventually free organizations from the terrible legacy Groove software that’s currently required.

If you have a OneDrive account and you use the unlimited storage that you received by signing up for Office 365, your account will be reverted to 1TB in March of 2017.
Microsoft on Thursday announced that it will alert users of its consumer cloud services—Outlook.com, OneDrive and so on—when it suspects that governments are trying to hack into their accounts.
