So after some months time we can already see that features are coming to the cloud versions before the on prem version. An update to OWA in Exchange Online now integrates the Office Web Apps into the attachment previewing experience for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files! Along with continued PDF support, this means Exchange Online users get high-fidelity previews of Office documents on the web, in exactly the same format they were created.
This post is a reminder that Microsoft Online Services has maintenance scheduled for this weekend.
Office Communications Online has a two hour maintenance window on Saturday, 8/27, between 1AM GMT and 3AM GMT. During this time, the service may be unavailable for a 10 minute period.
We will deliver minor patch updates to the Americas Region BPOS Exchange Online service on Friday, 8/26, between 4AM and 10AM GMT, and Saturday, 8/27, between 4AM GMT and 10AM GMT. We expect minimal customer impact during this time.
Between 3PM GMT Saturday, 8/27, and 3PM GMT Sunday, 8/28 , the billing portion of Microsoft Online Services will undergo planned maintenance.
While we’re updating the system, the following services won’t be available:
- Purchasing new subscriptions or addition of additional licenses
- Conversion of trial to paid subscriptions/offers
- Viewing of monthly charges or final invoices
- Viewing or modification of credit card or invoice information.
The following services will NOT be affected by this maintenance:
- All product services (Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Office Communications Online)
- Managing existing BPOS subscriptions
Thanks for your patience while we make important service improvements.
We just started a user group focusing on mainly on BPOS / Office365 / Azure and probably the rest of Microsoft´s cloud story.
Lets see were it takes us. The group will be based on Linkedin. To sign up http://www.linkedin.com/groupRegistration?gid=3732942
The plan is to have a first meeting somewhere in sthlm in the coming months with the topic of Office 365
Ok so I’m living my 3 screens and a cloud life and all is great, I stream / download all the music I want and haven’t been a pirate for many years now. Until I wanted to look at a music video in my WP7.
So a 3 minutes SD music video is 159 points that’s 3 min of standard def for 159 points folks…
I mean come on, I can just go to Youtube and look at the same video for FREE in HD
and the best part of this is that a fairly new blockbuster movie is only 320 point?
So there is something seriously messed up with the music industry and how they do their pricing of music videos for zune compared to youtube.
