We're nearing the end of the month, and that means it's time for Microsoft to once again highlight the changes made to its Microsoft 365 products over the past few weeks. There actually wasn't a blog post for October, so this is the first time we're getting a feature roundup of this kind in a couple of months.
Many of the changes in this month's updates were actually announced at Ignite earlier in the month. For example, OneNote 2016 has been brought back to life, and it's now getting a new dark mode that's already available for all Office 365 subscribers. Another previously announced feature is Sheet View in Excel, which lets users filter and sort lists in spreadsheets without affecting other users in real-time co-authoring.
One thing that's new is that users who create quizzes using Microsoft Forms can now allow respondents to upload files. Microsoft is also announcing an upcoming Outlook.com integration with Sticky Notes, which will let users see their notes in their inbox. This will be rolling out to everyone next month.
For IT managers, there are other updates this month, but they were also announced back at Ignite. These include a new Endpoint Manager, which brings together features from Intune and System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr). Microsoft has also made Intune licensing available to ConfigMgr customers. There's a new Productivity Score feature that lets organizations get insights into how productive its teams are and what factors might be affecting productivity.
Finally, Microsoft is announcing that Cloud App Security and Azure Advanced Threat Protection are now available for U.S. Government GCC High customers, bringing additional security capabilities to the public sector.
