RE: Online Interactive Guides

Hi Maddie, where are the other Office365 guides? what you had mentioned n is just few of them, I used to access http://guides.officeignite.com/Office%20365%20Guides.htm the complete set before? how to access them?

Re: Online Interactive Guides

[ Edited ]

NO EXCHANGE LAB.. thx for nothing.

 

I click here https://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/virtuallabs?id=eazbhvo0sq0 on "Get Started".. wrong link, i hope..

Re: RE: Online Interactive Guides

Hi Vignesh - all relevant and up-to-date guides were moved over to this community. Are there specific guides you're looking for?

Re: RE: Online Interactive Guides

@Vignesh S, we moved all relevant labs from the http://guides.officeignite.com site to Tech Community.  We did not transfer over outdated labs (Lync labs for example). My goal was to confirm community interest in this type of learning to determine if we invest in this type of learning moving forward.  So fare we have seen tremendous interest so we are absolutely planning on investing in more of this type of training.  Thanks for your feedback and stay tuned for more guides!

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Thanks for the feedback @Dirk Hülsekopf.  The link you provided is to the Technet Virtual lab inventory that a variety of full/VM hosted labs.  The Online Interactive Guides that are linked on this page are click-through demo labs (not an actual virtualized environment.  You are correct that we do not have any Online Interactive Guides on Exchange, however if there is enough interest, we certainly can build a few.  What types of Exchange guides would you like to see?  A "how to" on configuring an Exchange Hybrid environment?  Best practices on administering Exchange Online in the Admin Center?  Migration/Deployment focused?  Focused on Exchange security and compliance features?  Let me know and we will absolutely consider investing in these.  Thanks!

Michael

Re: Online Interactive Guides

When I click on the Virtual Exchange Lab, I end up here. The start lab links to this thread. Seems there are no labs for Exchange (at least the ones I clicked on).

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hey Michael, 

 

Regarding the exchange labs, i understand that virtual labs are different from guided expereinces but selecting "Creating a Database Availability Group" lab brings us here, thats what many people mean by  NO Exchange labs here.

 

Also if microsoft could bring back the exchange 2010 labs in virtual labs that would be great too. 

 

Thanks

Kevin 

Re: RE: Online Interactive Guides

These are helpful, however, they typically make some assumptions about licensing, configuration and security roles that are not fully explained. It would be more helpful, if there was some type of supporting documentation that would explain why we may not see the exact same screens. For example, my Security and Compliance Center does not have a Security Policies heading like the Using MDM video demonstates. I am going to have to spend some time doing some research to understand why mine is different.

Re: RE: Online Interactive Guides

Hi Michael, So what happened to the Guide for Project Online ?? That is not here and nor was it out of date. Would be good to see this restored. I note a number of Microsoft sites still point to the old link and instead of getting the Project Online guide video the get this page ... and nothing about Project online ! Thanks

Re: RE: Online Interactive Guides

Good point.  We only have the E3 license, but a lot of the security information is on features that you only get with and E5 plan.

Re: RE: Online Interactive Guides

[ Edited ]

Hi Dean,

they all were functionality demonstration guides, the guides were simply a superb Top view solution flow of each individual products line. For sure, no where they addressed any thing relataed to pricing/Licencing.

I wonder what concerns you all had .

Thanks for nothing.

 

Re: RE: Online Interactive Guides

Thanks for the feedback @Kelvin Kirby.  We will get the Project Online Guide added today.

Re: RE: Online Interactive Guides

Hi @Kelvin Kirby, we have added the Guide for Project Online.

Re: Online Interactive Guides

What happened to Performing eDiscovery Using SharePoint? The previous link was http://guides.officeignite.com/Guides/Performing%20eDiscovery%20Using%20SharePoint.htm. We used this as a training video for Microsoft O365 Frontline support engineers so they would be familiar with the procedure even though they don't support it.

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hi Kathy, we moved all relevant content over to this community. I'm adding @Michael Kophs so he's aware of your feedback regarding the Performing eDiscovery Using SharePoint Guide.

Highlighted

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Office Guides: SharePoint Online Overview for IT Pros sends people here for the interactive course but there is nothing about SharePoint here. Very disappointed.

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hi Sandra, thanks for your feedback. We moved all relevant and updated guides/labs over to this community. I'm adding @Michael Kophs so he is aware of your request for the SharePoint Online Overview for IT Pros Guide.

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Thank you for the feedback @Sandra V.  We are in the process of creating new SharePoint Online Guides that represent that latest available SharePoint offerings.  We only carried over the Online Guides from the previous site that were still relevant, removing the guides that were outdated and in need of updating (the SharePoint guides fell into this category unfortunatley).  Please stay tuned for a new wave of Online Guides that will include SharePoint.

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hi I am specifically looking for these guides,

It can be really inefficient when links are changed.

 

The orgiginla links were as follows. (not I changed them to hxxs to satisft the forms checking)

 

Performing an In-Place eDiscovery and Hold in Exchange Online.

hxxxs://officeignitelabs.cloudguides.com/Guides/Performing%20an%20In-Place%20eDiscovery%20and%20Hold...

 

 

Note: there is also eDiscovery for SharePoint Online.

hxxxs://officeignitelabs.cloudguides.com/Guides/Performing%20eDiscovery%20Using%20SharePoint%20Onlin...

 

 

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hi Quentin,

eDiscovery and Hold is now mostly being done in the Security and Compliance Center instead of in the Exchange and SharePoint admin centers. I can't say for sure, but I suspect this is why the old Ignite labs were pulled.

 

You might check out this Office video:

Getting started with eDiscovery case management in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1A466XvwN4&feature=youtu.be

 

It's just a short four-minute video, but it does a pretty good job walking through the steps necessary to set up eDiscovery.

Thanks,
Kathy

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hi,

 

Please add the old labs (Exchange & Office 365 Guides). They were really helpful.

 

 

Regards,

 

Rahul Kumaar

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Thanks for the feedback @Rahul Kumaar.  We are in the process of bringing back all old guides.  We are also in the process of refreshing these guides as to reflect the latest product/service offerings, but will post the old guides until the new ones are ready.  Stay tuned!

Michael

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Thanks.

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hi Michael,

 

Thanks for considering brining the old guids. They were so helpful. When shall we expect to see them back?

 

Regards

Mohamad

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Such helpful guides. Thank You

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Good stuff @Maddie Egan. I like these interactive guides.

 

Anything to help the end user actually interact with the environment and get comfortable with it is the way to to for better user adoption. Keep up the good work!

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hi @Mohamad Simawy - we have added back some of the previously retired guides on this post.

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hello Maddie, 

Thank you for bringing the retired guides back. 
The migraton guides are a big help. 

Re: Online Interactive Guides

I'm unable to access the information for O365 groups.  I just get a dark grey screen...have tried accessing in both IE and Chrome.

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hi @Brandon Little, are you still having issues?

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Michael and Maddie,

 

Please restore the Office Guides: SharePoint Online Overview for IT Pros guide until the new guide(s) are available.  Why take away what you currently have when the new content isn't ready yet?  That makes no sense.  I was looking forward to the guide, now I join @Sandra V and just have disappointment (again) in Microsoft.

Re: Online Interactive Guides

The Lync Labs would have been extemely useful as the deployment is largely identical to Skype For Business. Please can you make these available again for those studying for the 70-333 and 70-334 exams.

Re: RE: Online Interactive Guides

[ Edited ]

When we are able to see the technet labs for lync and skpe for business again. It is redirecting me to the technet community page which makes no sense. Can you please let me where I can find the labs

Re: Online Interactive Guides

Hi Maddie,

 

Is there a specific site I can have our SharePoint Learning site point to so that our staff can use the interactive guides?  I don't want to copy each link and manage it. 

 

Dave

 

 

Re: Online Interactive Guides

[ Edited ]

Hi Dave,
1-Create a Wiki Page and there you copy paste all the required links.
Rename that wiki page and share with teams,

2- Only If Office 365 , then can use sway to create a dedicated media WALL like Facebook

let me know if it helps

Re: Online Interactive Guides

[ Edited ]

This is great guys. keep sharing knowledge!
