SharePoint Conference 2019

Did you miss the SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas last week?  Here are some of the highlights...

One of the announcements that Microsoft outlined in this year's SharePoint Conference was for OneDrive being able to add AutoCAD drawing files and previews of 360-degree images. Another interesting addition is a sync support capability for Windows Virtual Desktop this is Microsoft's new virtual desktop infrastructure service that's currently in a preview stage.

SharePoint Online Site Renaming

What is one of the most long overdue requests as it relates to SharePoint Online or SharePoint Server? Being able to rename site addresses would be the answer.

The owner of the site has been able to change a lot of properties on their sites over the years but changing site URLs has not been enabled.

How Do SharePoint Online Admins Create Sites

Have you ever wondered how Admins of SharePoint create modern site collections or Classic sites?  Don`t let them fool you it really takes minutes to spin one up. Its the maintaining and administrating it that takes the effort. Here is a sneak preview of how they do it. Now it is true that users may create sites them selves, but they do not have all the features available that admins do.

By using the new SharePoint admin center, you can create sites that use one of the new team site or communication site templates.

SharePoint Online Group Inbox Notifications

Activity Notifications

Microsoft is bringing activity notifications to the group inbox in SharePoint Online. They will begin rolling this feature out soon.

Currently, your user's site activity feed only includes SharePoint content, files, lists, and pages. After this change goes into effect, your users will be able to view important group emails updates as well. Current settings will not be affected. 

Microsoft will begin gradually rolling this out in mid-February, and we anticipate rollout completion by April 2019.
