The Garage Series for Office 365: Work like a network. A first look at enterprise social updates with Yammer

This week Jeremy Chapman is joined by Yammer and enterprise social expert, Christophe Fiessinger, to give a preview of what’s coming with Yammer and Groups spanning Office 365 services for mail, collaboration and social. Christophe demonstrates upcoming changes within inline commenting and integrated collaboration experiences – proving that social is not just a single browser-based destination, but woven throughout Office 365. Today we have a special 10 minute show, covering the latest on enterprise social with Yammer and beyond – where we demonstrate the latest work to weave social into the fabric of how we work and communicate in Office 365. I’m joined by the enterprise social lead Christophe Fiessinger for Office 365, who offers a sneak peak on upcoming functionality. The show was filmed live at the SPC conference just after we previewed upcoming advancements in the keynote. The main premise is that social is not a single destination or Website, we’ve done a lot of work to integrate social across Office 365 application experiences to realize how you can work with more agility and like a network. Office Graph, Inline Social and Groups The exciting thing about the direction that we are taking with enterprise social is that the underpinning technology Office Graph which we previewed early March during our Garage show on Code Named Oslo and Office Graph , means that conversations relevant to what you are working on, just find you. Also with Inline social, you can have conversations within specific content that you may be working on which Christophe demonstrates with PowerPoint and video. You can find more in Jared Spataro’s blog Work like a network!  Enterprise social and the future of work . We also demonstrate how you can scope your work network through Groups that you can set up. The advantage of setting up groups to network around specific projects that you may be working on is that in turn you can fluidly communicate inline across applications such as email, calendars and files and unify related conversations, with the people identified within your group. On March 31, Steve Chew described in detail the concept of groups in his post about the evolution of email , so you’ll want to check that our for more information. If you can’t wait to get your hands on this stuff, we’ll be rolling out this functionality incrementally throughout the year, starting this Spring.

Outlook.com customers can now import their email from Yahoo Mail

After receiving a great response from the customers who imported their email from Gmail to Outlook.com , we’re excited to announce that, as of today, you can use Outlook.com to import and manage your email from Yahoo Mail and many other IMAP-enabled email providers. A recent study* by Radius Global revealed that 81% of all email users are using multiple email services. Keeping up with numerous accounts can be time-consuming, but moving to a single email service is not as easy as it sounds. It’s often hard to give up your older email account, because that’s the one your friends and family know, and it’s the one you use to sign in to so many different services. To help you, the import wizard in Outlook.com allows you to import and manage your mail from Yahoo Mail or many other IMAP-enabled email providers, or from Gmail. You can keep your old email addresses, but manage them all from one place: Outlook.com. Importing your email from Yahoo Mail Importing your Yahoo Mail into Outlook.com is simple. To get started, navigate to Options and then click Import email accounts . Select Yahoo , enter your Yahoo email address and password, and then click Import. This will also set up your Yahoo email address as a “send from” account, meaning you can continue to send emails from your Yahoo address, right from Outlook.com. It’s also possible to connect your Yahoo account to your Microsoft account , so your Yahoo contacts appear in Outlook.com. Importing your email from other email providers We’ve also added the ability to import from many other popular IMAP-enabled email providers. To get started, navigate to Options , click Import email accounts , then select Other email provider . Most popular IMAP-enabled email providers are supported. In both cases, the import happens in the background, so you can continue using Outlook.com or even sign out while it’s happening. Once the import is complete, we’ll send you an email to let you know. Import time will vary depending on how many emails there are to import. Importing your mail will not affect your old account–you can keep using it as you always have. However, we’re confident that once you try Outlook.com, you’ll love it. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to try the tool and let us know what you think. –Mike Schackwitz,  Principal Director of Program Management, Outlook.com *The online quantitative survey and analysis of 3,002 email users in the US, France, and Brazil was conducted by Radius Global Market Research ( www.radius-global.com ) from Dec 2013 to January 2014.
