Teams Mobile Feature updates for iOS

There are two handy features for the mobile client coming out quite soon. The first one is a better integration on the file storage integration. File-picker will soon (if not already for you) enable you to select different locations to attach files from. On my personal device, I can now pick from OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox. This feature should be rolling out to most tenants already The second feature coming out is the capability to hide (or show) Teams calls in the native iOS call log. I am looking forward to this as I have more than once accidentally called someone back with the wrong modality when I'm not in the office and not on Wi-Fi. Be aware that calls made prior to turning this feature off (removing calls from the call log). Already placed calls will remain in the list. The setting only applies to new calls. This last feature should be rolling out in September .

Office 2010, Going from Tech-Preview to Beta


I had a few obstacles when I tried to remove the 2010 tech preview I want to share with you.

But first, let me explain to you what scenario I had. I chose to upgrade my 2007 to 2010, and I had to use the 2007 Groove client, as the 2010 groove did not seem to work. After installing the 2010, I had also added the MOC 2007R2 + Live meeting add inns.

First I tried to uninstall the the 2010 tech preview. So far so good. no problems or errors reported. But when I tried to install the 2010 beta, I was prompted with an error message, saying I could not install until all 2010 components were removed.....?

Here is a list of what I had to do make it work:
1: I repaired the 2007 installation -> no go
2: I ran Outlook, and repaired the inbox to a 2007 state -> no go
3: I removed MOC -> no go (By the way, after removing tech preview, the MOC's integration to Outlook stopped working)
4: I removed the Live meeting component -> no go
5: I removed the conference add in for outlook -> Success

The lesson in this? It's not always enough to remove the software in question, but make sure you remove or fix some or all of the plugins/software which are integrated with the product.

I am now running Office 2010 beta, and have successfully reinstalled all the components I had to remove. And BTW: The new Sharepoint client (replacing Groove) is a nice improvement!)
