Simplified sharing from OneDrive for Business from the web

Description:
We’re updating the user experience for sharing files and folders in OneDrive for Business from the web.  This new sharing experience simplifies the flow of emailing links to colleagues and guests and copying links to the clipboard. Like the original experience, the new experience presents two choices to users who want to share: type email addresses to send a link in email, or copy a link to the clipboard. Both the “Share” and “Get a link” command support all three types of links in OneDrive, including anonymous access links (accessible by anyone), company shareable links (accessible to those within your organization) and restricted links (accessible to a custom set of users both in and outside your organization). This allows users to more easily choose their method of sharing (email or copying to clipboard) while retaining the full set of permissions choices. As always, the new sharing experience respects all IT sharing and access policies that are in place, so users will be able to get their work done while complying with the practices established by their IT administrators. It is rolling out to customers this month and we expect it to be complete in February.

Deprecation of SHA1 certificate support may affect EOP Filtering Only customers

Description:
There is a world-wide effort to deprecate SHA1 based TLS certificates. In Exchange Online Protection, support for those certificates will end in mid Feb 2017. If your on premises servers are still using SHA1-based certificates after mid February, a secure TLS connection will not be possible between your servers and EOP. If you use Forced TLS for your connector for messages from EOP, none of those messages will be delivered. For messages from your on premises servers to EOP, no TLS connection means we will be unable to identify those messages as coming from you and will not be able to send them out to the internet. For any partner connectors with Forced TLS enabled, mail flow will stop to those partners if they also have a SHA1-based certificate.Please ensure that any SHA1-based TLS certificates are renewed to avoid any disruptions to mail flow

Accessibility Updates - Skype for Business 2016 WIndows client

Description:
These new client visuals are part of a large amount of work (both visual and internal) Microsoft has done to make Skype for Business 2016 more accessible so that it can be enjoyed by more people around the world.  One example of this effort is the slight variation in color changes which provides greater text-to-background contrast to empower those with low vision to more easily distinguish parts of the interface.  We also improved screen reader support, simplified keyboard navigation and made the keyboard focus easier to see in many places.  For more information on the overall goal of Microsoft to enable all users go to: https://www.microsoft.com/enable/

Description:
We’re pleased to announce that we’re ahead of schedule with our inaugural Feature Pack for SharePoint Server 2016. Feature Pack 1, available in November, brings several enhancements driven by recent innovation in Office 365 and feedback from you on UserVoice, including:Logging of administrative actions performed in Central      Administration and with Windows PowerShell.Enhancements to MinRole to support small environments.A new OneDrive for Business user experience.Custom tiles in the SharePoint app launcher.Unified auditing across site collections on-premises      and in Office 365.Unified taxonomy across on-premises and Office 365.OneDrive API 2.0.Unlike previous versions of SharePoint, release-to-manufacture (RTM) did not define the end of innovation, but the beginning. As we continue to develop SharePoint Server 2016, we’ve paid close attention to customer feedback, trends in content management, team collaboration, user experiences across devices, and how the cloud can be blended into existing on-premises scenarios in new and compelling ways. Feature Packs allow us to accelerate delivery of cloud-first features to our Software Assurance customers (where noted) of SharePoint Server 2016 outside of the traditional 2- to 3-year release cadence.SharePoint Server 2016 and the coming FP1 enable hybrid scenarios across on-premises and Office 365 online. You can enable hybrid search, connected experiences with OneDrive for Business, Delve, Yammer and Office 365 Video, and now with FP1 you can perform a unified audit and take advantage of a unified taxonomy. For more information on other SharePoint and Office 365 hybrid scenarios, see hybrid.office.com.There is no cost associated with Feature Pack 1; however, some features of Feature Pack 1 are limited to Software Assurance customers where noted in this post.

Tenant Customizable Recipient Limits

Description:
In Exchange Online a mailbox user is allowed to send to a maximum of 500 recipients per message. This default value currently can’t be changed by the tenant admin. Yet, many admins would like to raise this limit on at least a few mailboxes (for monthly newsletters for example). Others want to significantly lower it (to, say, 50 or some such) for most or all mailboxes in their organization, as part of a perceived defense-in-depth strategy to reduce the potential impact should a hacker compromise a user account and start blasting out spam, or a disgruntled employee tries to air their grievances company-wide. With the upcoming customizable recipient limits, you’ll now be able to customize this setting between 1 and 1000, for a single mailbox, multiple mailboxes, and for the default setting for new mailboxes that you create in the future. Single and bulk edit will be available in the Exchange Admin Center UI, while customizing the default setting for new mailboxes can be done via Remote PowerShell.

You can save values for roles, licenses assigned, contact information, location, and more. When you use the template to create a new user, they will automatically get the saved value for these settings. Example: I have a large group of engineers starting in Redmond. I know that they will all be users with no admin role, Microsoft 365 Business, be located in the United States, be Engineer 1, be in the engineering department, and be in the Redmond office. I can save all of these values to a “Redmond engineer” template. When I go to create the users, I can use this template to prepopulate all these values. Templates will be rolling out slowly over starting in the beginning of September. We will be looking at expanding the scenarios and functionality for templates over the next few months.

Audio Conferencing via Direct Routing for GCC High and GCC DoD

Description:
Audio Conferencing via Direct Routing for GCC High and GCC DoD enables participants to join your organization’s meetings using a standard phone number. Participants choose to use a phone to join meetings for scenarios where Internet connectivity is limited, are in transit, or don't have access to a Teams application. Participants can join the meeting either by using the dial-in access numbers of your organization or by having the meeting dial out to a phone number. Configuring this feature requires your organization to use its own numbers for dial-in access and all meeting dial-outs to phones are via Direct Routing. To enable the service, organizations need to set up Direct Routing and configure phone numbers that can be used for dial-in access. GCC High and DoD customers should note that the requirement to use direct routing is different from the Audio Conferencing service that is offered to commercial organizations where the dial-in access numbers are provided by Microsoft. Please be sure to review the correct documentation for this offering. We expect the documentation to be available at the same time as General Availability for the feature.

Enhanced filtering for connectors

Description:
This feature will help organizations that have complex mail routing set ups. This basically means that your MX record does not point to Office 365 EOP and you receive mail through an inbound connector. Properly configured connectors are a trusted source of incoming mail to Office 365, but connectors aren’t necessarily the true source of messages and obfuscates the sender information. Enhanced filtering for connectors is a feature that allows you to filter email based on the actual source of messages that arrive over the connector. This is also known as skip listing and this feature will allow you to overlook, or skip, any IP addresses that are considered internal to you in order to get the last known external IP address, which should be the actual source IP address resulting in improved effectiveness. We believe that this feature will help those customers that aren’t fully leveraging EOP/ATP’s full value to show why you could or should move your MX record to EOP.

Office 365 license activation changes

Description:
In August, we will start rolling out changes to Office 365 licensing technology to make it more reliable and resilient. These changes will help simplify activation management and streamline the Office activation experience for users. Users will still sign-in to activate Office on their devices, and if single sign-on is enabled, Office will automatically pick up the credentials and activate Office. As part of your subscription, users can still install and activate Office 365 apps on up to five PCs or Macs, five tablets, and five smartphones. Previously, users who reached this limit were prompted to deactivate an existing install before activating Office on a new device. Going forward, Office will automatically sign the user out of the user’s least recently used device when the user exceeds the limit, eliminating unnecessary friction. In August, we’ll start slowly rolling out these changes to commercial customers on Monthly Channel. No additional action is required on your part.

Office ATP AIR - Exposing Investigation data through Management Activity API

Description:
In response to customer feedback and suggestions, and to ensure that our customers have access to critical information to investigate security incidents in their tenancy, we have made some enhancements to the Automated Investigation and Response (AIR) feature in Office 365 ATP. We have been working to meet the extensibility requirements of our customers, who want to leverage the intelligence of our investigations within their custom tools. As part of this work, we will be exposing information about AIR investigations through the Office 365 Management Activity API. This data will include Investigation metadata like ID, Name, Originating Alert ID along with link to the investigation for further analysis. In addition to this, we will also be providing high level information about the investigation actions and entities associated with that investigation. The investigation data will be sent as an event to the Management Activity API on the change of the status of an investigation. As an example, when the status of an investigation changes from Running to Pending Action, it will be captured as an event with the latest investigation data for that state made available through the Management Activity API. The enhancement will begin to rollout by end of July and is targeted to be saturated by 2nd week of August.

Description:
We’re improving how you manage admin roles in the Microsoft 365 admin center. It will be easier to see who has admin access and to assign roles that grant the right level of access to your admins. We are rolling out this feature to Targeted Release customers and will begin rolling it out to worldwide production in July. Today, you can view, add, or remove admin roles for a specific user from the Active users page. We’re adding a Roles page accessible from the left navigation pane in the new admin center to extend your capabilities. With this experience you can export a list of all admins in your org who are assigned Azure Active Directory roles that apply to Microsoft 365 services. You can view all admins assigned to a specific role, add or remove admins from a specific role, search for roles by name and keyword, and learn more about what each role allows a user to do.

Improvements to Threat Explorer for better hunting experience

Description:
We're making significant improvements to the Threat Explorer for better manual threat hunting experience. Based on common hunting scenarios and customer feedback, we're introducing following updates: 1. Clarity on delivery status of an email : Today in Explorer/ Real-time detections, we show the delivery status of an email which could be delivered, delivered to junk, blocked, replaced and removed by ZAP. The status doesn’t help paint a complete picture of where the email actually landed and where is it at a given point of time. We're going to split the existing delivery status into more accurate values and simpler relatable names to define it. Delivery status is renamed to “Delivery action” and “Delivery location” is another column which is added to indicate the location of an email. There might be events which occur post-delivery of an email, they are captured under the column “Special action”. All these values combined would help the admin understand what action(s) were taken on an email and the location of that email. 2. Timeline view for an email: Email timeline is a new feature underway to make hunting simpler for admins. In case of multiple events occurring on the same email, that would be shown in a timeline view so the admin won't have to hunt down at different places to understand the email events. 3. Ability for admins to view and download malicious emails for analysis: Email preview and download option will allow the admins to better analyze bad emails We'll be rolling out these features in the order above.

Microsoft Intune is excited to introduce management of UEFI BIOS settings (device firmware on most new hardware), powered by the intelligent cloud using Device Firmware Configuration Interface (DFCI). Until now BIOS management has been proprietary per-OEM, often creating an inconsistent experience to deliver security with ease-of-deployment. With DFCI support, IT administrators gain the efficiency of cloud-scale remote firmware management with zero-touch device provisioning and built-in security. DFCI will initially apply to Surface devices, and an open-source framework will be published to enable third-party OEM partners. DFCI supports zero-touch provisioning, eliminates BIOS passwords, provides control of security settings including boot options and built-in peripherals, and lays the groundwork for advanced security scenarios in the future.

Title:
Microsoft Intune distributed administration with role based access control

Description:
Role-based access control and scope tags help organizations define that right administrators have the right access and visibility to the right objects in Microsoft Intune administration console. By assigning roles to IT admins using permissions, scopes and roles, organizations can define what the IT admin can access, change, manage and see. For example, if your tenant is distributed across several departments or regions, you can limit each IT admin to only have visibility and management over their own Intune objects. This feature is available now and new capabilities are added with ongoing service releases.
