I was watching the December update (thank you for posting it!) and you mentioned there something that we  knew from MS announcements that docs.com will go away, and you recommended TechNet. But on our O365 Admin portal we received an announcement that TechNet retires, and all the content will be moved to Docs.microsoft.com "We're moving TechNet to https://docs.microsoft.com" I checked and docs.com and https://docs.microsoft.com are different locations, but it will be nice to know Microsoft strategy on where they are going to publish for a long term their adoption content. In our communication to end users we usually refer to links provided from Microsoft. But if these links change, we need to make sure to update the links to the correct and more permanent location.

Thank you!

It's a good point Svetlana, I think the Message center post could have been a bit clearer.  Docs.com is shutting down and doesn't really come into it, as it was standalone service that was retired after the LinkedIn acquisition and Slideshare must have been deemed to be a suitable replacement.

 

docs.microsoft.com (DCM) is the next generation Microsoft documentation platform, which started with just a few topics but over time has grown with more areas. It has many useful features - Introducing docs.microsoft.com, my favourite being the option to download content to PDFs.

 

Microsoft Teams documentation was moved to DCM not so long ago and now TechNet content is on its way.   I think it will be much of the content here - Office Products and you can already see many of these headings on DCM, though most of it still redirects to TN for now.  By the looks of those headings, it will include some support.office.com content as well.

 

Either way, all the links after they are moved will still work as they will get redirected, so it has no impact as such and I am sure things will be clearer nearer the time.

Sorry for not being more clear.

 

@Cian Allner,

 

Thanks for jumping in and providing much needed clarification.
