It has been a busy week of #Microsoft365 messages. We saw a few reminders that Office 2013 and older versions of Mac OS will shift out of support for Office 365 by October 2020. While it’s a year away, large organisations need that length of time to plan a deployment to Office Pro Plus.

The Global Reader role is rolling out, allowing those assigned the role to read settings across Office 365 services. This will equip some service administrators information to make decisions and configuration changes, without giving them the ability to edit services they don’t need access to.

Outlook on the Web adds ‘Meetings Insights’ to assist you with preparing for a meeting. It will suggest relevant files and emails to attach and share with invitees.

We launched the ‘365 Message Center Show’ audio podcast last week and have had a very positive response, judging by the number of downloads.
