There is something cool coming up! But who could explain it better than Jeff Teper?

You heard him right – a full day training, deep dive, one topic – for free! Global Office 365 Developer Bootcamps around the world:

Please join Microsoft MVPs Stefano Tempesta and Max Melcher for an all-day workshop in Microsoft Teams and Azure Bot Framework development!

To be successful in this workshop, you should have a general understanding of Office 365 and an ability to code in JavaScript/.NET. From there, you’ll learn the technologies Microsoft Teams and the Bot Framework are built on!

Based on that foundation, you’ll learn how to develop production-quality Azure Bots for use in enterprise solutions or product offerings. You’ll also learn to use and extend Microsoft Teams. The day will also include an overview of other development opportunities in Office 365, which can provide a tailored collaboration and productivity environment for end users.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the latest Office 365 development technologies!

Explore OneDrive for Business key features and roadmap

27 Sep 2016
September 27, 2016

My clients currently use OneDrive for Business quite a lot and there are still some rough edges – I hope in that session we get some insights what is coming soon. Here are my brief notes:


Rock Solid Sync

The robustness of sync has greatly increased (I share that experience).

Mobile Experience

The mobile experience has greatly increased, 4+ star rating in all app stores. Android and iOS app usage is high.


Office Graph

OneDrive highly uses (and contributes signals) to the Office Graph to enhance the user experience.

Security, Control and compliance

Security is key; IT can manage the OneDrive settings via the admin portal. More to come here, later.


Development & Extensions

Never had the usecase to extend OneDrive, but its valuable to know that there are options:


Work in Progress / Roadmap

“Recent files” is global on all apps, in the Office integration and the browser.

“Shared with me” is showing files that have been recently shared with you.

Search utilizes the Office Graph, same does “Discover”


File Preview

PDF experience improved, annotations are stored back to OneDrive

Adobe Photoshop, RAW files, Illustrator are rendered

Email (msg, eml) are previewed, too.

Video files: dynamically streamed now, the bitrate can be adjusted on the fly now


Folder Sharing

Folder sharing is now rolling out with a new experience. Sharing by link is now possible, previously only named users could access folders.


Copy & Move to

Selecting files give you the option to move or copy files to location where others already have access to. Once clicked there will be a hover that allows you to select teamsites where you can move the files to; the sites that are shown are generated by the office graph depending on your previous usage.

Sync & selective sync

Selective sync is coming to SharePoint sites – the demo that is shown was running on MacOS!


Office Integration

Sharing directly out of office in the top right

Improved Skype for Business integration, you can see changes in real-time, and you can click on the user profiles to see where the person is currently editing.

Activity feed: You get a button in the top right, eg. Word to see what has been changed and eventually rollback changes.



OneDrive will soon have real-time notifications, eg. a folder or file has been shared with you.

Active files

The OneDrive mobile app shows now what happens with your files once they are shared with others. With stats on the right:


Instant preview

In the OneDrive apps you now get an instant preview without opening an office app for that; currently only office files.

Admin center / OneDrive console

This is a big change! Admins can now give access to a users onedrive via the admin center on a per user basis. Additionally external sharing can be controlled.

There is a global OneDrive console to control external sharing globally, lots of settings that had to be done via powershell are now migrated to the new admin experience. Link expiry setting or a block list for domains is new to me, too.

You can now configure to retain data once a user leaves up to 10 years!


The roadmap screenshot was so packed, I barely could read it:

onedrive roadmap

I am most excited about the better SharePoint integration.

The “Scan” option that is coming to the mobile apps is handy, OCR integrated. Scanning business cards or receipts is a good usecase here.

Oh well, and of course OFFLINE FILES aka placeholders. I heard that yesterday in the SharePoint roadmap session and I am pretty excited about it:


My questions after the session

I asked two questions:

  1. When will the url length limit be increased? Answer: next year
  2. Why is selective sync slower than taking everything? Answer: open a support ticket, that should not be the case


Solid show! I really liked what I saw, OneDrive is really maturing. Reuben Krippner and Omar Shahine gave us great insights, thanks!

The answers to my questions were rock solid, I just added them here briefly so I dont forget them myself.
