OneDrive Message Center Updates October 1st to October 15th

Hello everyone, 

 

With the team settling back in post-Ignite, we’ve got some great updates to share that will be landing in your organization soon! This month, we are rolling out updates to allow for the silent implementation of Known Folder Move and we are adding the activity column to OneDrive on the web! We also want to remind everyone about the upcoming TLS changes we’ve mentioned on this blog previously!

 

Known Folder Move

Available Now

 

A few months ago, we announced the availability of the Know Folder Move feature for Windows and OneDrive. It has been truly amazing to see the enthusiasm and excitement around the new capabilities that we announced at Ignite. We are excited to announce that silent deployment of Known Folder Move is now available in production builds of OneDrive, making it even easier to migrate content from your user’s local drive to the cloud.  You can read more about how to deploy Known Folder Move silently to your users here

The team is continuing to invest in and improve the Known Folder Move feature and if there are additional capabilities you would like to see, we encourage you to submit your asks at the OneDrive UserVoice. Most notably, we know that Mac users are interested in Known Folder Move as well and we are continuing to investigate solutions on how to integrate KFM with the macOS platform. We look forward to sharing our future plans around Mac as we make progress.

 

Activity

Begins rolling out to customers in late October 

 

We are adding a new column to the standard views on the OneDrive website to surface the most valuable activity directly to users. Once available, this column will help users easily see which files have been active by highlighting events like comments, mentions and more. This is a great way for users to understand what content they should check out and may be important to getting their work done. The activity column will begin rolling out in October.

Mandatory use of TLS 1.2 in Office 365

In support of our promise to provide best-in-class encryption to our customers, we are planning to discontinue support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions 1.0 and 1.1 soon in Microsoft Office 365. We understand that the security of your data is important, and we are committed to transparency about changes that could affect your use of the service. The Microsoft TLS 1.0 implementation has no known security vulnerabilities. But because of the potential for future protocol downgrade attacks and other TLS vulnerabilities, we are discontinuing support for the use of TLS 1.0 and 1.1 in Office 365.
