Over the last months we’ve taken many steps towards enabling search-driven publishing for intranet sites in SharePoint Online. We enabled the Content Search Web Part (CSWP), the cross-site publishing feature, and a new group cache that improves the performance of the CSWP.
Now we’ve enabled two features that previously were available only in SharePoint Server 2013—the Taxonomy Refinement Panel Web Part (TRPWP) and faceted navigation.
Introducing the Taxonomy Refinement Panel Web Part
The Taxonomy Refinement Panel Web Part (TRPWP) is similar in both name and functionality to the Refinement Web Part (RWP). With the RWP, visitors can filter content that’s displayed on a page; for example, they can filter to display only items... | Read more »

Your SharePoint 2013 farm in Microsoft Azure is ju...

The Azure Preview Portal now supports the automated creation of a basic or high-availability SharePoint farm in Microsoft Azure.

You can use your Azure subscription, an Azure trial subscription, or your MSDN subscription to set up your farm.
Setting up a farm in the basic configuration requires three servers: a domain controller, a SQL server, and a SharePoint server.
Setting up a farm in the high-availability configuration involves nine servers: two domain controllers, two SQL servers, a SQL Server quorum server, two SharePoint servers in the application tier, and two SharePoint servers in the front-end web tier.
For either of these two farms, you can specify... | Read more »

Meet the new Office Dev Center

We are excited to announce that the Office Dev Center has gone through a major redesign and content overhaul, as we create a home for the Microsoft Office 365 developer audience.

We also heard the resounding feedback that developers had to constantly hunt and peck for key resources, such as the various events and recordings of our latest announcements and launches.... | Read more »

Legal firm embraces cloud computing, wins case for...

 
Lawyers at RTR, a criminal defense firm in Miami, Florida, had been using faxes, couriers, and an unreliable server—which impeded productivity. Then one of its lawyers introduced Microsoft Office 365, mobile devices, and smartphones. Now documents are stored online, lawyers access case files in court and at home, on any device, and they use simultaneous coauthoring to create briefs. Productivity is up by an estimated 25 percent.
For more, read the RTR case study.

Bob Gogel is CEO of Integreon.
To provide our clients with highly scalable legal, research, and document support services from our 17 office locations around the world, we depend on fast, flexible communication technology.

 
For a number of years, we relied on separate software systems for voice, instant messaging, content sharing, and video conferencing that simply didn’t provide the ease of use that our people needed. Our employees found that constantly switching between productivity tools, email, and a separate web conferencing application was a hassle. They also felt tethered to their computers, because they lacked the freedom to collaborate from anywhere through their smartphones or other mobile devices.
Beyond these usability concerns, cost was also a major issue. We couldn’t justify the expense of a standalone web conferencing service... | Read more »

In this special edition of Garage Series Live Under the Hood, Jeremy Chapman goes deep on the operational side of information protection with lead engineer Matt Swann – from Office 365′s blue team – responsible for detecting and analyzing anomalies in the service. They discuss how the service is architected for security across physical, network, access and data vectors then Matt demonstrates how the cloud is used to protect the cloud with real intrusion and anomaly detection examples.

Last week we concluded our Garage Series Road Trip with our final stop in Dubai, where we saw how businesses in the booming Gulf region are using Office 365 and we took a tour of Project, offline support in OWA and OneDrive for Business and saw a video call using Lync from a watch. This week revisit the conversation of trusting the Office 365 service with one of our foremost... | Read more »

I'm writing a detailed set of instructions for getting VPN 'on-demand' working with iOS 7.

Delivering improved handwriting capabilities, incl...

Just in time for back to school, we are releasing OneNote for Android tablets with handwriting capabilities, along with several OneNote handwriting improvements for Windows 8 and partner devices.
Even in the digital age, some folks still find handwriting more natural than typing. Beyond the benefits of comfort, The New York Times recently reported on research that suggests students are better able to generate ideas and retain information when they write versus type.
We’ve made improvements for handwriting in OneNote that reflect our vision for how people can take advantage of software and the cloud, without compromising the comfort and benefits of pen and paper.
Here’s what’s new:

SharePoint Online simplifies storage management

Mark Kashman (@mkashman) is a senior product manager on the SharePoint marketing team.
The journey to simplify the admin experience in Office 365 continues. Previously, we increased all OneDrive for Business users’ storage allotment to 1 TB. Along with this adjustment, we removed the OneDrive for Business quota management tab from the SharePoint Online admin center.
Today we are introducing a new storage model based on usage, making it easier to manage availability of storage across your SharePoint Online team sites. In addition, we increased the number of site collections limits to parallel and adjust the new usage model.
Let’s dive into the details.

In the modern cloud-connected world ubiquitous access to email, files and contacts is key to your productivity and effectiveness—at work and in your personal life. The Microsoft email solution comprised of Outlook and Outlook Web App (OWA) can not only increase your productivity, but also ensure you can collaborate with others, right within your email, in a highly secure environment.
However, only you can decide which email solution is right for you.
