  • What’s new in the Office Roadmap – 2015-03-13

    Tags: Office 365, SharePoint Online, Yammer, Exchange Online, OneDrive

    RoadmapIt’s not easy to keep up on what is happening in the Office and Office 365 world. Everything is changing so fast. Fortunate for us Microsoft and the Office product group has created the Office Roadmap site (http://office.com/roadmap) with all (almost at least) the details on what is in development and rolling out etc. It became quite famous the other week when the new forms solution went from In Development to Cancelled.

    Unfortunately it is quite hard to stay up to date on what’s changing in the Roadmap, and until Microsoft provides us with better details with regards to this, I thought that I could help out. Actually a while back I built a PowerShell script that automatically notifies me of any changes to the Roadmap – and why keep that a secret?

    I’ll try to blog the changes as soon as I discover them, and I’ll add my personal thought on the change…
