Manage Access inconsistencies with Microsoft and Office365

Manage Access inconsistencies with Microsoft and Office365

In my day job, as a SharePoint and Office365 consultant, I now find that I keep having to revise previously-issued advice because Microsoft keep changing the code and what the user is expected to do, without actually telling anyone.

On Friday, we saw that the Manage Access function for documents wasn’t quite working, because it wouldn’t tell you who you had given access to:

So we had to revise our documentation, because it was a fairly useless feature. No point trying to figure out who you’re sharing a document with if you can’t actually see the names.

Fast-forward to Monday morning, and it’s changed so you *can* see who you’ve shared a document with.

Nice change, Microsoft, but you could have just released that function when it was working to begin with…

The future of Windows?

Quite a few bloggers (see the full guestlist) and I were invited into Central London to preview what exciting things Microsoft had in store for us for 2009/2010, in an event apparently termed Microsoft-hosted CESfest 09. So off we duly went.

The mystery about what was going to be revealed at said event was somewhat spoilt by the extensive press coverage from CES 09, including a preview of Windows 7 and some enhancements for Windows Live Messenger, but they revealed all to us (and a webstream) anyway.

So now you’ll be wanting to know what exciting new improvements there are to Windows 7….
