52. That’s quite a number. It’s not the number of updates we have to talk about in this episode, but it is the number of episodes we’ve released.
With that being said, Episode 52 is all about news for the month of February 2018. We have updates in Azure, the Microsoft Search experience for Teams and SharePoint, and a number of updates to Azure Active Directory.
- General availability: Virtual Network Service Endpoints for Azure SQL Database
- Private Teams now shows up in Search
- New ways to govern access of external users are coming to Office 365
- “In SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, sharing resources (files, folders, sites, etc.) with external users is accomplished by sending an invitation to the users directly, or adding them to groups and granting appropriate access levels. As a result, an external user would only see the content that has been shared with the user or with groups to which the user belongs.After March 23, 2018, external users will no longer see content that has been shared with Everyone, All Authenticated Users, or All Forms Users. Only a small number of tenancies use this permissions model to grant access to their specific external invited guests. Content that has been permissioned to these groups will, by default, be visible only to your users within your organization’s tenancy.”
