In this week’s episode of the 365 Message Center Show, we discuss a targeted Power BI message, new default setting for Exchange resources, the help and support pane in Office 365, and more!
3:31 Exchange Online – calendar AutomateProcessing changes through PowerShell – Read announcement MC151582
— When using PowerShell to create new resources (conference rooms, etc.), the default behavior will be to automatically accept the reservation if the resource is free. Previously, the default was ‘AutoUpdate’, which meant that a delegate for the mailbox had to approve the request manually.
6:52 Disabling Basic authentication in Exchange Online – Public Preview Now Available – Read announcement MC151642
— If you are using apps to connect to Exchange Online using basic authentication, this update is something to pay attention to. You will need to update your connection method to the ‘modern’ way.
9:53 The help and support pane is now available from the Office 365 navbar – Read announcement MC151704
— Your organization can put contact information in the help pane so your users can get assistance quickly.
3:29 Planned Maintenance: Power BI – Announcement MC151453
— Schedule maintenance for Power BI in the West US region was performed Oct 21st. Unfortunately, Microsoft removed the announcement from my Message Center after the period, so I can’t link to it. Check the video for my opinions on it.
33:10 Office 2019 servers available: SharePoint, Exchange, Skype for Business, & Project Server – Read the post in Tech Community
— All new versions of the Office Servers are available now via MSDN (for testing) and your volume licensing sites.
