This makes groups a flawless arrangement where you can impart and meet with anybody inside or outside your association – regardless of whether they are not a Teams client. With these changes, here are 9 hints to having more profitable gatherings with participants in and outside your association:

#1 – Join a meeting via Audio Conferencing.  What if you are on the road and don’t have access to the internet? Audio Conferencing (formally PSTN Conferencing) in Teams meetings is now generally available.  Users who are enabled for enabled Audio Conferencing will automatically see dial-in instructions added to their Teams meetings.  Dial-in numbers are supported in 90+ countries, 400+ cities, and 44 interactive voice response (IVR) languages.  Dial-out to add an attendee via their phone number is also supported.  The Audio Conferencing service in Office 365 can be enabled for any user of Office 365 and adds a low-cost audio conferencing to your Teams meetings so you can connect and collaborate with individuals on the phone as part of your meeting experiences.

#3 – Admit attendees from the LobbyDo you need a few seconds to get everything prepared? By default, all attendees who are not from your organization will arrive in a virtual lobby after which they will have to be admitted to join the actual meeting. This is done to enhance the privacy of your meetings – but also gives you time to make sure you’re ready for an important customer meeting. In the future, an admin will have the option to update the settings to allow anonymous users to join directly without having to go into lobby.

#4 – Mute the noisy attendees.  Tired of hearing a dog barking? In large meetings (> 5 people), anyone who joins after the meeting has started, will join as muted thereby reducing noise in the meeting. Further, if you notice any noise from others, you can mute that person, or mute everyone, easily from the roster.   If someone has been muted, they’ll get a notification letting them know. They’ll be able to unmute themselves if they need to be heard. If you ever need to mute all the other participants in a meeting, head to your meeting roster and select ‘Mute all’. Everyone will get a notification and be able to unmute themselves if they need to.

#5 – Join a meeting or initiate a phone call without a plug-in.  Who has time for downloads?! You can now enjoy a plugin-less experience in a web browser where a meeting or a call just works!  You can simply go to teams.microsoft.com from Edge or Chrome and to join a Teams meeting or from Edge to initiate a 1:1 call.

#6 – Share only the essentials. Don’t want everyone reading your email when you share your desktop? With Application sharingyou can choose to share a specific window instead of your entire screen. Rest assured that your desktop screen, or notifications are not shared when sharing your content in the meeting.

Teams meeting desktop and application sharingTeams meeting desktop and application sharing

#7 – Let others get in the driver seat.  What happens when you see something someone else doesn’t? With Application Sharing, if someone is sharing their desktop, you can either request to have control of it or have the sharer give you control of their desktop.

Teams meetings give and take controlTeams meetings give and take control

#8 – Get help with Interactive Troubleshooting. Have you ever forgotten to unmute yourself before you made a great argument in the meeting?  With Interactive Troubleshooting, Teams will alert you if it detects you’re trying to speak but you are still muted.  This is the first scenario of many scenarios where Teams can proactively detect and advise attendees of common issues that may impact their productivity during a meeting.

Teams interactive troubleshootingTeams interactive troubleshooting#9 – View Call Analytics for Teams.  If you need to troubleshoot a user’s meeting as an administratorCall Analytics provides you and helpdesk professionals the ability to search for a Teams call history for a specified user calls and meetings to help troubleshoot issues with these experiences.

If a user is using both Teams and Skype for Business Online, we strive to have tools you leverage for Skype for Business also work on Teams.  With the preview of Call Analytics, all your users’ calls are in one place and we make it easy to identify which client was used. For each call, detailed metrics are provided that can help identify issues impacting the audio quality of the call or meeting. For more information about Call Analytics, please refer to: Set up Skype for Business Call Analytics, Use Call Analytics to troubleshoot poor Skype for Business call quality, and What’s the difference between Call Analytics and Call Quality Dashboard?

Changes to Microsoft Office and Windows servicing and support +1-844-777-7886

Delivering a secure and productive modern workplace is a top priority for many of our commercial customers, and we’re committed to help. Last July, we took a big step forward in this journey with the introduction of Microsoft 365, a new product suite that brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security. Many customers are in the process of moving to one or more of these products, and they’ve asked us to clarify a few key points to help them with their upgrades. Today – two years before the end of extended support for Windows 7 and Office 2010 (January and October 2020, respectively) – we’re announcing servicing extensions for Windows 10, changes to the Office 365 ProPlus system requirements, and new details on the next perpetual release of Office and Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) release of Windows.

Servicing extensions for Windows 10

Windows 10 is being adopted rapidly by organizations of all sizes, and as customers deploy the product they are implementing a modern servicing methodology we refer to as Windows as a service.

Many customers – including MARS, Independence Blue Cross, and Accenture – have made significant progress in moving to Windows as a Service, but some have requested an extension to the standard 18 months of support for Windows 10 releases. To help these customers, we are announcing an additional six months of servicing for the Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10, versions 1607, 1703, and 1709. (Additional servicing for Windows 10, version 1511 was announced in November.) This extension will be offered via normal channels. The chart below outlines the impact of these extensions for each of the last four Windows 10 releases.

Release Release date End of support End of additional servicing for Enterprise, Education
Windows 10, version 1511 November 10, 2015 October 10, 2017 April 10, 2018
Windows 10, version 1607 August 2, 2016 April 10, 2018 October 9, 2018
Windows 10, version 1703 April 5, 2017 October 9, 2018 April 9, 2019
Windows 10, version 1709 October 17, 2017 April 9, 2019 October 8, 2019

We will also offer additional paid servicing options for Windows 10 Enterprise and Education releases starting with Windows 10 version 1607. For more information, contact your Microsoft account team.

Updates on the Office 365 ProPlus system requirements

Office 365 ProPlus delivers cloud-connected and always up-to-date versions of the Office desktop apps. To ensure that customers get the most secure and efficiently managed experience from ProPlus and Windows 10 together, we are providing updates on the Windows system requirements for Office 365 ProPlus.

  • To clarify our current support practices for ProPlus running on Windows 10, ProPlus will not be supported on Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel (SAC) versions that are no longer being serviced.
  • Effective January 14, 2020, ProPlus will no longer be supported on the following versions of Windows. This will ensure that both Office and Windows receive regular, coordinated updates to provide the most secure environment with the latest capabilities.
    • Any Windows 10 LTSC release
    • Windows Server 2016 and older
    • Windows 8.1 and older

We recognize that some of our customers deliver Office to their users via Remote Desktop and VDI. Later this year, Microsoft will deliver new Remote Desktop and desktop virtualization capabilities within the SAC release cadence of Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows Server. Join the Windows Server Insider program to get early access to these capabilities.

Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus Customization Tool for Click-to-Run

On 1st of Jan 2018 microsoft had announced a preview of the Office Customization Tool for Click-to-Run, a simple to use web application that enables desktop administrators to customize Office 365 clients.

For complete application visit office.com/setup

Until before, Windows administrators would use notepad or an equivalent text editor to compile various XML statements to define the Office edition, feature update frequency, version, language and other number of available settings. This somewhat tedious task, in most cases, would result in installation errors from fouled up manual entries or copy-and-paste actions into the text editor.

With the new Office Customization Tool, desktop admins can leverage the rich user interface that intuitively shows all available options to build the desired Office configurations. The configuration tool groups the commonly used settings in the following categories:

  • software & language
  • installation & update
  • licensing & display

Each of these areas provide admins with options to help meet their security and regulatory needs.

One of our favorite additions, is the configuration builder. Desktop admins can quickly see a list of all configuration settings being chosen on the right-hand side of the screen, giving the desktop admin a quick and easy way to see the result of their selections without jumping through multiple screens.

When all the desired settings have been selected, desktop admins are provided with the option to download the resulting configuration.xml file which is to be used in conjunction with the Office Deployment Tool for the settings to take affect during installation time of the Office 365 client.

Desktop Admin also have an option to upload any previously configured XML files to the configuration tool and modify them with new or existing settings.

For those of you who are familiar with the old Win32 Office Customization Tool which came with your perpetual (MS Installer) bits, you’ll notice the new customization tool has a lack of install-time user preferences. Over the next several months we will be enhancing the tool to enable desktop admins to select many configurable user preferences that are currently being offered with the perpetual counterpart. We encourage you to try out the new Office Customization Tool which is available in preview today, by clicking on the link or typing http://config.office.com in your browser. Send us feedback and let us know what you think by using the send a smile feature, located on the top right of the web application.
