Collab365 – What’s new in SharePoint 2016 for Power Users

Posted by Joy

I delivered my 1st session today at 11.00 PM – 12.00 PM GMT (07th October) at Collab365 on “What’s new in SharePoint 2016 for Power Users”. It was at 4.30 AM (08th October) for me and delivering a live session at this time for the 1st time.

This is one of the few live broadcasting sessions at Collab365 and it was nice to see more than 30 attendees.

Even though I had some technical trouble sharing screen, I managed to cover many of the new and enhanced features in SharePoint 2016. Following are the topics I covered during the session:

  • SharePoint Release History and Roadmap
  • App Launcher
  • Increased upload file size
  • 5,000 items list view threshold
  • Document Library accessibility features
  • ODF support
  • Expanded support for file names and URLs
  • Sharing features
  • Durable Links
  • Access Services new features
  • Fast Site Collection creation
  • Hybrid scenarios in SharePoint 2016
    • Hybrid Sites
    • Hybrid OneDrive
    • Hybrid Search
  • Compliance features

Even though I was not able to demo all of this, I was able to explain all of them.

I’m planning to record set of short videos on how to configure and use them in future and stay connected. Smile

Announcements – SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview

Posted by Joy

I have been trying the new SharePoint Server 2016 bits for few months through the TAP programs and now time has come to talk about in public.

Microsoft released SharePoint Server 2016 preview build 16.0.4316.1217 on 10th August for TAP participants and now the same build has been released to public.

It’s pointless recreating the same blog and visit Bill Baer’s post about to get more information on the SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview.

This preview meant and focuses on infrastructure new features and enhancements and I believe that’s why they call is as IT Preview.
