Are you getting the most from Office 365?  Do you like to be bleeding edge?  Want to try new products and features out before they hit the mainstream?  You can set that option in your o365 Admin Portal and try out the new stuff before it hits the general public.  You can also provide early feedback which can help shape the development of the product as well.  Go to this site to see how to adjust your settings to enable preview features.

Want to see what’s in development and early release?  This site will show you the Office 365 Product Development Roadmap.  It includes what’s been recently released, and what’s coming down the pipeline.  Use this page to see if the feature you are looking for is on the horizon.  It’s also a great resource to see what features are available that you never knew existed!

Our personal favorites:

  • Skype for Business (desktop and mobile device) – chat with all your colleagues, instant video conferencing and screen sharing, integrated with Outlook for chat history
  • Yammer – think Facebook for the office, with integration to SharePoint, etc.
  • Office 365 Activity Dashboard – see who’s really getting the most of your subscription, and what features are being actively used (and by who)
  • OneDrive for Android – access to both your work and personal accounts from your mobile device

Check out how other people are using these products at the Office Blog site.  Select which products you are interested at top of the page and it will filter blog posts related to those products.We hope these maximize your Office 365 usage and lead you to new and improved opportunities!
