Key Updates and Announcements Happy Friday! I have two weeks worth of updates as I decided to kick back and relax during the Easter break. Here’s a few of the changes that have my interest:
Teams Meeting experience improvements! Most people who have participated in a Teams meeting this week most likely would have been a part of the shenanigans of people applying new background effects. Perfect timing to rollout this change as so many people are working from home who want to block out the visual noise caused by working in make shift offices.
Key Updates and Announcements Happy Friday everyone. Another week, many more updated provided by Microsoft, here’s a few of note, with a full list provided in the list of updates section.

Key Updates and Announcements Happy Friday, Everyone. I hope everyone is staying safe during these trying times.
Microsoft streamlining Office 365 performance to accommodate additional remote workers Due to the current world climate, there’s been a surge in the number of people working from home resulting in unprecedented pressure placed onto IT infrastructure, including networks and cloud based services. As a result of this additional usage, Microsoft have made changes to de-emphasis some features to free up valuable computing resources to ensure vital services remain responsive.
In recent weeks due to global circumstances there is much chatter surrounding the need for people to work from home and the impact this type of decision has on the ability for people to successfully complete their work within these constraints. Whilst working from home is not a new concept and many organisations allow for staff to work from locations other than their typical central office location, for many people this arrangement may be for a single day per week, less frequently, alternatively for some they make a deliberate choice to always leave home each day and be present at the office.
