Office 365 news roundup

Microsoft customers of every kind, from individuals to enterprises to educators, rely on Office 365 for exceptional productivity, privacy and security. Office 365 provides the tools to help administrators of Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and universities work better, more efficiently and more easily.

We recently released the Service Assurance Dashboard as part of the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center, which enables administrators to perform a risk assessment on Office 365 services—on-demand—and provides transparency into Office 365 services. We also announced an update to the Yammer apps for iOS and Android, which allows IT administrators to support their mobile workforce and provide employees with access to corporate resources on their personal mobile devices while protecting their corporate data using mobile application management (MAM) controls in Microsoft Intune.

As part of our ongoing work to enhance Office 365 productivity, we announced the general availability of the Microsoft Excel REST API for Office 365. Developers can now use Excel to power custom apps that extend the value of your data, calculations, reporting and dashboards. In addition, we recently released an Office Online extension that lets you create and access Office files directly from the Microsoft Edge browser. We also launched the OneNote Importer tool for Mac, which makes it easy for Mac users to move their Evernote pages to OneNote, allowing them to save money while taking advantage of the OneNote integration with Office apps like Word, PowerPoint and Excel. And for educators, we recently made improvements to OneNote Class Notebooks and OneNote Staff Notebooks based on teacher feedback.

Office 365 is a complete solution, providing the productivity, security and manageability you need.
