Hi,

 

It's great that the new Creators update offers a single sign on experience for our users so they have access to all their Office 365 documents. The only niggle with this is users need to use a keyboard to sign in on a device otherwise setup for touch only. 

 

I know the Surface Hub doesn't support Windows Hello using it's in built camera but would it support a 3rd party Windows Hello compatible camera? It'd really improve the user experience for our staff.

 

Thanks,

Craig.

It wouldn't support Windows Hello as that is an operating system login, whereas the sign-in to the Office apps by the user is to the app itself.
I do believe that users should be able to authenticate using the Microsoft Authenticator app on their mobiles to support selecting their user on the screen, however I don't have access to a Hub so can't confirm if this came in the Creators Update.
