Microsoft's Office 365 has been expanding in both sales and in its global reach, and that means more people will need to be informed on any changes and additions that are planned for the productivity software service. This week, Microsoft announced a new way to better communicate with Office 365 administrators: the Message Center.
In a post on the official Office blog, Microsoft states that the Message Center now appears as a link on the left side of the admin portal. It is designed to be a complement to the current service email alerts admins receive, adding in items such as alerts to new Office 365 features.
You can see a list of important items, links to detailed information and visual indication of items that require administrator action. When you click on the details link you are provided with more information on the specific action that administrators need to take and timeframes for those changes.
Naturally, this is just the first version of Message Center and Microsoft plans to update it with new features in future releases, such as receiving messages in the language of the administrator's choice and information that has been tailored to the specific organization.
