The UWP Community Toolkit v2.2

Author: Nikola Metulev
Go to Source

I am extremely excited to announce the latest update of the UWP Community Toolkit, v2.2. The credit for this release, as always, goes to the community, who have continued to support and improve the toolkit for each release. V2.2 introduces a new Parsers package, new controls and helpers, and many improvements and bug fixes to existing APIs.

Below is a quick list of the highlights of this release. Make sure to visit the release notes for the complete list of what is new in v2.2

Microsoft.Toolkit.Parsers and MarkdownTextBlock

V2.0 of the UWP Community Toolkit introduced several new .NET Standard packages, with a commitment to support more cross platform APIs. Building on top of that commitment, V2.2 introduces a new .NET Standard package: Microsoft.Toolkit.Parsers. This package includes parsers for markdown and RSS that can be used across UWP and other platforms that support .NET Standard 1.4 or above.

In addition, the MarkdownTextBlock control is leveraging the new renderer and in addition supports:

  • Code syntax highlighting
  • SVG images and image width/height syntax
  • Relative URIs for images and links
  • Comments and more

Staggered panel

A new panel has been added to enable staggered layout where items are added to columns with the least amount of space.

XAML Brushes

V2.2 introduces a new namespace (Microsoft.Toolkit.Uwp.UI.Media) and adds 7 composition based brushes, including a RadialGradientBrush. The backdrop brushes apply the effect to whatever is behind the element in the app.

MSAL support and cross-platform Microsoft Graph and OneDrive service

A .NET Standard version of both the Graph and OneDrive services has been introduced and the old OneDrive service has been marked obsolete. The .NET Standard versions of each service now support Microsoft Authentication Library (MSAL) and consumption outside of purely UWP apps. The new service can be found in the Microsoft.Toolkit.Services package.

Notifications package support for My People shoulder taps

With the latest update, the notifications package now includes new toast features for My People shoulder taps, so developers can easily enable this feature in their apps.

Built by the Community

This update would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the community support and participation. If you are interested in participating in the development, but don’t know how to get started, check out our “help wanted” issues on GitHub.

As a reminder, although most of the development efforts and usage of the UWP Community Toolkit is for Desktop apps, it also works great on Xbox One, Mobile, HoloLens, IoT and Surface Hub devices. You can get started by following this tutorial, or preview the latest features by installing the UWP Community Toolkit Sample App from the Microsoft Store.

Happy coding!

New in February—advancing creativity, teamwork, and management in the modern workplace

Author: Kirk Koenigsbauer
Go to Source

Today’s post was written by Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president for the Office team.

New Office 365 capabilities this month include tools to improve the quality of your work, craft compelling resumes, and work with team members outside your organization. Office 365 administrators also benefit from new ways to manage collaboration at scale, communicate complex ideas, and protect their employee and customer data. Read on for details.

Enhanced tools for creativity and teamwork

We continue to build on intelligent technology in Office 365 with a new set of AI-powered features to improve the process of content creation.

Improve your writing with Editor—The new Editor overview pane in Microsoft Word brings together a set of tools to optimize the process of editing and finishing your work. While you’re editing a document, Editor overview shows a summary of opportunities for enhancement with corrections, refinements, and stylistic suggestions that take into account the context of the overall document, allowing you to make changes linearly or by category.

Additionally, for education subscribers, the Editor overview pane provides teachers with a dashboard to understand common errors individual students make and inform lesson plans. Editor overview is available to all Office 365 subscribers and replaces the traditional spell check pane. To get started, click the Check Document button in the Review tab of the ribbon.

Craft compelling resumes in Microsoft Word—Last November, we announced Resume Assistant, a new AI feature in Microsoft Word to help you craft a compelling resume with personalized insights powered by LinkedIn. This month, Resume Assistant began rolling out to Office 365 consumer and commercial subscribers on Windows. With over 80 percent of resumes updated in Word, Resume Assistant helps job seekers showcase accomplishments, be more easily discovered by recruiters, and find their ideal job. To learn more about Resume Assistant, read the official LinkedIn blog or visit Office Support for tips, tricks, and information on how to get started.

Work with guests in Microsoft Teams—We’re rolling out the ability to add anyone as a guest in Microsoft Teams. Previously, only those with an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) account could be added as a guest. Starting next week, anyone with a business or consumer email address—including Outlook.com and Gmail.com—can participate as a guest in Teams with full access to team chats, meetings, and files. Guests in Teams will continue to be covered by the same compliance and auditing protection afforded to Office 365 subscribers, and can be managed securely within Azure AD.

Get to information faster with StaffHub Now—Updates to StaffHub provide new ways for Firstline Workers to manage their day. The new StaffHub Now tab includes a preview of your workday, with notes, activities, and breaks all in an easy-to-read format. We’re also making it easier to quickly access StaffHub by bringing it to the Office 365 App Launcher. StaffHub subscribers can navigate to Office.com and sign in with their work account to get started.

Updates for Office 365 administrators

Updates to Office 365 this month help administrators manage access to resources, better understand what information they have stored, and strengthen their compliance posture.

Enforce naming conventions across Office 365 Groups—We introduced the ability for administrators to set naming policies for Office 365 Groups. This top requested feature allows organizations to enforce consistent naming structures and block specific words from being used. Naming policies are automatically applied when a user creates a new group, and can include dynamic attributes from Azure AD, such as department, office, or geographic region. This makes it easier for administrators to manage groups at scale, and for users to identify relevant Office 365 Groups in the global address list. Office 365 subscribers can try this feature for free while it is in public preview. For licensing details, visit Office 365 Support.

Create advanced network diagrams in Visio Online—Last year, we introduced Visio Online, a web-based version of the popular Microsoft diagramming tool. Starting this month, Visio Online now includes a variety of network topology and equipment shapes, giving administrators the tools to create detailed network diagrams and plan their IT environment. We also introduced new canvas capabilities like Dynamic Glue and Control Points, giving all users greater control over shape customization and making it easier to produce complex diagrams. Visit Visio Online Support to learn more.

Prepare for GDPR with new compliance capabilities—The European Union’s Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect May 25, 2018 and sets a new precedent for data protection and compliance. Throughout February, we announced several new capabilities in Microsoft 365 that leverage the cloud to help organizations meet their compliance obligations. Compliance Manager, now generally available, helps you assess and manage your risk and prioritize tasks to achieve organizational compliance. We also introduced new features in Azure Information Protection (AIP), including the general availability of AIP Scanner, which enables you to automatically discover, classify, label, and protect sensitive data in apps, cloud services, platforms, and on-premises. Learn more about these new features in our latest GDPR blog.

Changes to Office and Windows servicing and support—As part of our ongoing commitment to help our enterprise customers with the deployment and maintenance of their corporate environments, we announced changes to our servicing and support models. These updates include servicing extensions for Windows 10, changes to the Office 365 ProPlus system requirements, and new details on the next perpetual release of Office and Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) release of Windows. Read more about the details on our TechNet blog.

Learn more about what’s new for Office 365 subscribers this month at: Office on Windows desktops | Office for Mac | Office Mobile for Windows | Office for iPhone and iPad | Office on Android. If you’re an Office 365 Home or Personal customer, be sure to sign up for Office Insider to be the first to use the latest and greatest in Office productivity. Commercial customers on both Monthly Channel and Semi-Annual Channel can also get early access to a fully supported build through Targeted Release (Clients, Services).

Empowering clinicians to achieve more with Health Team Huddle templates

Author: the Microsoft 365 team
Go to Source

Today’s post was written by Diana Pallais, managing director of Microsoft 365 Industry Marketing.

Improving quality of care depends on many things—including overcoming complex care environments and cybersecurity threats. Since Microsoft 365 is built for teamwork, healthcare organizations can increase the effectiveness of their quality improvement processes and coordination of treatment plans, and enable research projects. Our new Health Team Huddle templates for developers extend Microsoft Teams to help drive quality and care outcomes by enabling collaboration with more effective huddle teams.

Every day, many times a day, health teams huddle to address patient care issues—tackling quality, safety, and management issues. But many teams rely on outdated modes of communication without an easy way to centralize health team notes, create actionable plans, and visualize patterns of patient symptoms. Critical patient information can fall through the cracks with these antiquated processes. Digitizing the huddle creates a single place to interact as a team. This integrated space for collaboration helps providers be in tune with their patients and improves the quality of care.

With the Health Team Huddle templates, you can:

  • Measure and visualize impactful best practices across your organization.
  • Identify patient care issues and potential causes.
  • Share ideas with your health team using natural conversations.

Reimagining the huddle process is one way that Microsoft 365 can empower health teams to securely work together with intelligent tools and solutions to share ideas and improve quality of care. And this is built on the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph, which provides built-in security at all levels, leveraging trillions of data signals with machine learning. Microsoft has a long track record of building security and privacy into how we design and develop software. To build a trusted cloud platform for health teams, Microsoft has more than 1,100 internal controls to meet multiple regulatory requirements and industry standards, including HIPAA BAA and FedRamp.

We have a number of partners with healthcare industry expertise who are ready to assist you by understanding your needs and tailoring a solution that meets your requirements.

Our key partners include:

  • AvanadeFrom the back office to Frontline doctors and nurses, Avanade helps our clients deliver more effective, efficient, and affordable healthcare. Our Digital Workplace practice utilizes the secure and regulatory compliant Microsoft toolset to give caregivers access to the information, applications, collaboration, and automation they need to work more effectivelyany place, any time, and on their device of choice. At HIMSS18, Avanade will present a case study of how we used Microsoft Teams to deliver a Virtual Tumor Board that is driving higher utilization while creating a better work experience for caregivers.
  • New Signature—As life expectancy increases and health issues become more complex, patient care must become more connected and focused on preventive, continuous health. Microsoft 365 and Azure are opening up new opportunities to meet these challenges head on and enable healthcare organizations and professionals to change the way they work. New Signature’s Healthcare Team Collaboration Labs use Microsoft’s latest digital workplace solutions together with prototype use case templates to help you reimagine your team communication, collaboration, and connected patient care.
  • Rapid Circle—The Incident Reporting solution helps healthcare institutions prioritize, automate, and analyze your current incident reporting process. By using Microsoft Teams as a hub for your healthcare team to collaborate and report incidents, they are enabled to help professionalize current processes and improve patient handling.
  • SADA Systems—Serving the needs of healthcare organizations nationwide, SADA Systems specializes in collaboration, virtual health, telemedicine, cybersecurity, data and analytics, and custom application development. We are excited to leverage Microsoft Teams to further empower collaboration solutions for health teams. With a proven track record in enterprise consulting, cloud platform migration, custom application development, managed services, user adoption, and change management, SADA successfully enables healthcare organizations by delivering on all Microsoft Cloud solutions.
  • Slalom—Slalom’s “Jumpstart your productivity with Teams” offering enables health organizations to drive productivity by leveraging Microsoft Teams as the hub for teamwork. The offering takes a user-centric approach to identify appropriate personas and collaboration scenarios and determine dependencies. This offering enables health organizations to roll out Teams in just three days by providing a comprehensive adoption and change management plan, in addition to a roadmap for care collaboration execution in healthcare scenarios.

Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17110 for Fast

Author: Dona Sarkar
Go to Source

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17110 (RS4) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

What’s new in Build 17110

Improvements for Enterprise Customers in RS4

Enterprises can now run custom actions during feature update: In RS4, we are adding a new feature that will enable your enterprise to run your own custom actions/scripts synchronously with setup. Setup will execute custom actions during two update phases controlled by using preinstall.cmd or precommit.cmd:

  • Pre-install: This would be just before all the system and device compatibility scans run.
  • Pre-commit: This would be just before the system reboots into the offline phase.

Setup also migrates the scripts for future updates. In the event of an update failure or rollback, a failure.cmd script can be used to perform custom operations or undo actions of previous custom scripts.

Run (Migrate):

  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunpreinstall.cmd
  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunprecommit.cmd
  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunfailure.cmd
  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunreflectdriversfoo.inf
  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunreflectdriversfoo.sys

Run Once (Do not migrate):

  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunoncepreinstall.cmd
  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunonceprecommit.cmd
  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunoncefailure.cmd
  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunoncereflectdriversbar.inf
  • C:WindowsSystem32updaterunoncereflectdriversbar.sys

Enterprises can run post rollback scripts in system context : Current /postrollback scripts run if the first user logs in after the rollback has admin privileges. We received feedback from several enterprises that most of their employees don’t have admin privileges. With RS4, we are enabling /postrollback scripts to run in admin context or system context.

We are not changing the behavior of the existing /postrollback switch. We have added a new switch /postrollbackcontext “xxx” to be used along with /postrollback switch to specify in which context should the scripts be executed:

  • To run /postrollback scripts in system context

–        setup.exe /postrollback c:Fabrikamsetuprollback.cmd /postrollbackcontext system

  • To run /postrollback scripts with first user to login have admin privileges (admin context)

–        setup.exe /postrollback c:Fabrikamsetuprollback.cmd /postrollbackcontext admin

Windows containers

Docker for Windows users, we are flighting the matching Windows container images of Server Core and Nano Server to the Docker Hub for continued testing and feedback.  Thank you for all the great feedback and please keep it coming!

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

  • We fixed an issue where buttons on Game bar were not centered correctly.
  • We fixed an issue where a small number of PCs might have experienced one CPU under persistent high load or even a bugcheck (GSOD with error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION).
  • We fixed an issue where tearing a PDF tab in Microsoft Edge would result in a bugcheck (GSOD).
  • We’ve updated Start so that it now follows the new Ease of Access setting to enable or disable hiding scrollbars.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some app icons appearing distorted in Task View.
  • We fixed an issue where making a pinch gesture over the open apps in Task View might result in no longer being able to scroll down to Timeline.
  • We fixed an issue where pressing and holding on a card in Timeline would open the corresponding app, rather than bringing up a context menu.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the title bar overlapping content when you opened your lists in Cortana’s notebook.
  • We’ve updated the new notification to fix blurry apps so that it now will persist in the Action Center to be accessed later once the toast has timed out and dismissed.
  • We fixed an issue where it wasn’t possible to open a new inPrivate window of Microsoft Edge from the taskbar jumplist while in Tablet Mode.
  • We fixed an issue where dragging a Microsoft Edge tab out of the window and releasing hold of it somewhere over the desktop might periodically result in a stuck invisible window.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in DirectAccess not working in recent builds, where the connection would be stuck with status “Connecting”.
  • We fixed an issue where the touch keyboard number pad would show the period as a decimal separator for countries that use the comma as a decimal separator.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to turn on and off third-party IMEs using the touch keyboard.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in numbers not being inserted when flicking up on the top row of letters in the wide touch keyboard layout.

Known issues

  • Selecting a notification after taking a screenshot or game clip opens the Xbox app’s home screen instead of opening the screenshot or game clip.
  • Post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices have experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and may enter a reboot loop state. For affected PCs, turning off fast boot may bypass the issue. If not, it is necessary to create a bootable USB from an ISO, boot into recovery mode, and this will allow bypass.
  • When Movies & TV user denies access to its videos library (through the “Let Movies & TV access your videos library?” popup window or through Windows privacy settings), Movies & TV crashes when the user navigates to the “Personal” tab.
  • [ADDED] We are investigating reports that the Microsoft Store is no longer working (and appearing on Start/All apps/Taskbar) after updating to this build. See this forum post for details.

No downtime for Hustle-As-A-Service,
Dona <3

Wipro drives innovation and encourages social learning through Yammer

Author: Guest Author
Go to Source

Wipro logo.

Today’s post was written by Anurag Seth, vice president and global head of Talent Transformation, TopGear, and Business Continuity at Wipro.

Profile picture of Anurag Seth, vice president and global head of Talent Transformation, TopGear, and Business Continuity at Wipro.Digital transformation at Wipro includes a proactive evolution of our skills and qualifications to better serve customers. If Wipro is to help customers succeed on their own digital journeys, it’s critical that we stay ahead of the rapid evolution of technology in a world where cloud computing is the new normal. That means our employees need to become proficient with leading-edge technology concepts such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data to help customers gain business value from these latest innovations in IT.

Our challenge, then, is to manage the rapid pace of new training—e-learning and hands-on experience—which is required for more than 160,000 employees working in 62 countries to offer expertise in the kind of technology and services that will help customers solve 21st-century problems. We’re doing just that by choosing Office 365 collaborative cloud tools to help develop a social learning platform that uses the enterprise social network Yammer.

Although we deployed Yammer two years ago, today more than 4,000 public groups and 100,000 employees are active in our Yammer network, and we are one of the first companies to introduce the role of social officer to create a strategy for using Yammer as a social learning platform. The social officer encourages the formation of dedicated social learning groups on Yammer, and employees subscribe to those they are interested in. These groups could unite a single role, such as project manager, where participants in more than 175 cities across the globe share their challenges and learning at a scale and pace we could never achieve with traditional methods. Most of these groups come from the 40,000 members of our Talent and Transformation Yammer group, which represents the learning and development function at Wipro.

As soon as employees saw their contributions recognized by senior leaders—our CEO regularly follows Yammer threads and adds his input—there was a groundswell of participation. When a social learning group appeared for the first time in the top five most engaged Yammer groups at Wipro, it was a breakthrough. Today, of the top 100 most followed people in the organization, 51 are from social learning groups. That represents strong leadership in a culture change that’s happening organically at Wipro—for millennials who are joining the company now, as well as our long-term employees.

Yammer also supports an exciting new learning initiative called Topcoder for our crowdsourcing platform at Wipro. This initiative acts as a crowdsourcing mechanism to discover and develop new expertise across the organization. For Topcoder, we created training, case studies, and learning refinements that are open to all employees, along with exciting, real-life projects and challenges—all publicized through Yammer. As employees work on the projects, in their own time, they create groups and collaborate on Yammer to learn new skills and solve the challenges, gaining companywide recognition in the process. Over time, we are seeing the growth of permanent communities of practice on Yammer—mainframe, Java, architects, and consultants—which raises the level of discoverable expertise that we can bring to bear on behalf of our customers.

All this represents a culture change at Wipro that has huge business value. As more employees participate in Yammer-based social learning—sharing their expertise and engaging with the company—or participate in Topcoder’s projects to solve real-world problems, we’re developing better skills to more quickly serve customers. For example, a recent challenge in Topcoder that generated buzz on Yammer asked employees to create an exciting UI for a mobile app. We received many entries and awarded prizes to the top three designs. Now when a customer comes to us with a similar challenge, we have dozens of Topcoder participants with relevant experience, ready to go.

As the number of people participating in social learning increases, Yammer provides a mechanism to tap into the talent of our more than 160,000 employees. This will take our digital journey to the next level. With an increasing pool of consultants rapidly honing their skill sets by learning in a more natural, engaging way, Wipro is in a better position to increase its competitive advantage.
