SkyDrive introduces smart files in Windows 8.1

When we designed SkyDrive for Windows 8.1, we thought a lot about how storage needs are growing much faster than device hard drives. So we invented smart files, which allow you to have your files always with you while being unconstrained by storage capacity.

In the Windows 8.1 preview we saw consumers using SkyDrive in two distinct ways. The first group of people are very conscious of what they have saved to disk and most of their files are online-only. We found that the majority of people using smart files take up 80% less disk space than they would without smart files. The second group of people are on the other end of the spectrum: they explicitly chose to have all their files available offline, and so have their entire SkyDrive stored locally.  This showed us that users understand smart files and are tailoring the feature to their needs.

 

 

Although smart files are a fraction of their original size, they behave identically to any other file. A great example of this is how smart files show up in Bing Smart Search in Windows 8.1. This feature, which is rolling out over the coming weeks, allows you to search from the desktop for the content of Camera Roll photos that have had text extracted from them.

For example, you might have taken a photo 6 months ago of the menu of your favorite restaurant, but can’t remember where it’s buried in your Camera Roll and want to remember the dish you had. You can simply type in the restaurant name on your desktop and Bing Smart Search will search text of your Camera Roll photos and pull up the picture of the menu with the restaurant name printed on it. With the power of smart files, this will work even if your Camera Roll is marked for online-only access. The moment you open the photo, it will be instantaneously pulled from the cloud for you to view the full version.

 


People are starting to take photos not only to capture special moments, but also to keep track of everyday information, so we are really excited about this scenario and proud to unveil this valuable OCR search feature.

Just weeks away from the general availability of Windows 8.1, we’re very excited to not only continue allowing you to have your files always with you, but to make your files smarter.

Microsoft add Feature to the Ms Office 365 Tools

Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft hopes to be set to include all the more new and apparently private company centered applications to its Office 365 Business Premium membership.

ms office setup

There’s a join page for “business applications for Office” that I saw by means of MSPowerUser.com that touts a modest bunch of applications, including MileIQ, Bookings, Invoice, Spend, Point, and Presence. The applications recorded appear to be supplementary to Microsoft’s current Office application suite, furthermore appear to be versatile first and cross-stage.

Microsoft Office 365 Ad on Features

A portion of the applications either as of now have been or are amidst being added to the Office 365 Business Premium arrangement, for example, the MileIQ mileage tracker and Bookings programmed planning applications. Simply this week, Microsoft declared that Bookings could be coordinated specifically with business clients’ Facebook pages.) Microsoft purchased Mobile Data Labs, the organization behind the MileIQ application, in November 2015.

A few the applications recorded on the page appear to be so far informally unannounced and are recorded as “coming soon.” Those incorporate Spend, a cost following application, and Presence, an application that will permit clients to “set up yourself online just and unquestionably track your web nearness.”

Office 2016 Setup on Premium Software

I think about whether the Spend application has anything to do with the Microsoft Garage hatchery extend that was known as “Phoenix.” Back in 2015, Microsoft was trying an iOS adaptation of the Phoenix cost reporting application, yet references to that application appear to be gone from the Garage page.

There’s additionally a referrals application said on the new-application page that is called Point. I think about whether this has anything to do with another Microsoft Garage hatchery application that was called “Home Team.” The Garage page records Home Team as “trial finish.” The portrayal of the application: “Home Team empowers clients to get and share informal suggestions for administration experts.The new business applications page additionally references a “private issue aide” similar to a “coming soon” option to the arrangement. I blogged a while back about Microsoft’s Bing Concierge bot, which took a gander at an ideal opportunity to be an adversary to Google’s Assistant. Possibly this is by one means or another identified with whatever this new business colleague might be.

The “Join” catch for all these applications takes clients to a page to agree to a free trial of Office 365 Business Premium. That administration is Microsoft’s most extensive Office 365 membership get ready for independent companies. It costs $15 per client every month if paid month to month, or $12.50 per client every month if paid yearly. It incorporates the full arrangement of locally-installable Office applications for up to five PCs as well as Macs per client, and in addition Exchange Online, Skype for Business Online, SharePoint Online, Yammer venture long range interpersonal communication, and 1 TB of OneDrive for Business distributed storage. This is all about the Premium tools for Microsft Office 365.

Scheduled EOP reports and domain-based email traffic support

Two new EOP reporting features have been included in this update. First, customers can now schedule EOP reports to be delivered via email on a weekly or monthly basis. For tenant admins, this means you can schedule EOP reports to arrive in your inbox on a day that you specify and choose from four types of EOP reports:

  • Mail traffic summary (aka sent-and-received mail)

The new scheduled report feature is easy to set up on the Office 365 portal for EOP or Exchange Online customers.

To get started, go to the Office 365 portal and click Reports, then select the type of report you want to schedule. From the report page, click Schedule this report. It’s that easy! You’ll find more information about scheduling EOP reports and the customization features that help you obtain the specific data you need here.

Scheduled EOP reports are delivered to your inbox on the day of the week or month you specify.

The second new reporting feature enables admins to assess email traffic at the domain level through PowerShell. For large customers with many domains, this feature makes it easy to view domain-level aggregation of mail traffic. To obtain mail traffic breakdown by domain, use the ‘Domain’ parameter with  Get-MailTrafficReport and Get-MailTrafficPolicyReport in PowerShell. More information about domain-based email traffic support is available here.

Simplified block and allow

We simplified the process for EOP or Exchange Online admins to block or allow emails from an individual sender or an entire domain. The new simplified block-and-allow lists replace the need to write a complex transport rule to bypass spam filtering or modify the Spam Confidence Level for a sender or domain.

Located in the Spam Filter section of the Office 365 Exchange Admin Center, you’ll access this feature by clicking the Protection link, making it easy and intuitive to find. There, you can create, edit and maintain block-and-allow lists for senders and domains.

Simplified block and allow is currently in preview with first-release customers and will be deployed worldwide by the end of the month.

Quarantined message preview and bulk release

As part of our efforts to revamp our quarantine feature area to further protect against email containing malware or viruses, we released our new quarantined message preview earlier this month. You gave us the feedback that you need more information to determine if a quarantined message is malicious or legitimate. The new quarantined message preview allows you to see the body of a message without triggering any malicious content. This new visibility provides an improvement over previously just seeing a quarantined message’s sender, recipient, subject and date.

Two months ago, we released our bulk release feature, which has received widespread positive feedback from customers. Now, admins can quickly and easily select up to 500 quarantined messages to release or not release, which can be especially helpful in addressing large email campaigns. The bulk release feature can be accessed either through the Office 365 quarantine area or via PowerShell.
