Office 365 Newswire: What’s new in Microsoft’s Office 365? – 4.20.2012

This week is a bit of a slow news week here at the Office 365 news desk and the Office 365 Newswire reflects this situation. I think when you see the first news item you will see just exactly what I mean. But fret not. Summer is coming and with its arrival, there just might be an Office 15 beta. If this rumor proves true… might there also be a beta of Office 365? As I say almost every single day:

You never know with Microsoft.

Office 365 news & editorials!

  • Office 365 goes to the movies :: Where are my petit fours? The USS Fabrikam? Russle up a posse? Well Cletus, watch this movie to see how the plot unfolds. If you like cheese, these are pretty funny. I am ashamed I laughed at each one. It is proof I’m a legitimate dork.
  • What’s new in Microsoft’s Office 365? There’s a wiki for that :: MJF making her rather routine appearance at the newswire. You should probably just bookmark her blog and subscribe to it via your favorite RSS news reader. To add a little value, I think I’ll start stating her main point here and then telling you the first thing that comes to my mind. What do you think? Let’s try it. MJF gist=Microsoft has Wiki to remind of all the new stuff they have added. My Take=I’m ready of Office 365 wave 15.
  • Office 365 Could ultimately fail. Not! :: This headline is straight from the early 90s… NOT! This is a point, counter point regarding last week’s news item where someone had the audacity to say Office 365 will fail.
  • Small business competency and Office 365 certification path :: If you are into certifications, here is more news regarding Office 365′s certification program. I don’t have a high opinion of certification programs. I won’t tell you why for risk of offending anyone with certifications.

Office 365 tips, tricks & tools

  • SharePoint Online makes PowerPoint slide libraries available via the cloud :: PowerPoint slide libraries is a feature I really want to investigate. It is on my list but I have not been able to get to it. I have a few (what I believe to be) good ideas for apps take advantage of them. I bet you do too. This is a good article. It defines the problem that slide libraries solve and then digs in deeper. Oh… it also includes plenty of screenshots which makes me happy.
  • Office 365 Point of view videos [Part 1] [Part 2] [Part 3] [Part 4] :: This is a 5 part series but only four have been published. The series explains Office 365′s features (email, SharePoint, Lync, etc) from a “worker’s” point of view. Not sure what type of worker. I find this to be a funny word. Have you ever looked at a word and thought about it too much? To the point where you think it should be spelled the way it is? I have. I’m doing it right now… worker, worker, worker, worker… .
