What's new in Office 365 this week?

By

Getting your invoice via email instead of needing to sign in, an updated list of known safe websites, and knowing when a OneDrive folder is shared are new features in Office 365 this week.

 

For the first time, Office 365 can now send your invoice via a PDF email attachment instead of requiring you to log into the Admin centre. This is a welcome change. though It's not automatic. To turn it on you must sign in and select Billing / Billing notifications. You will see a new option, "Receive billing statement as email attachment" – turn this on. You will then receive your invoice as a PDF attachment in an email at your next billing cycle.

To reduce the risk of embedded content coming in from unknown sites, Office 365 has a default list of sites and domains — listed in the HTML Field Security setting — which are known to be safe. Microsoft is improving how the HTML Field Security setting is configured, to help improve the content embedding experience.

Specifically, Microsoft is updating the default list of sites and domains to include additional commonly-used websites from Microsoft and external services. This rollout will be completed by the end of August.

Office 365 now shows when a folder is shared on OneDrive Web. The sharing indicator appears on the end of the breadcrumb to make it clear in the in-folder view when that folder is shared with others. To learn more about who the folder is shared with, click the sharing glyph to open the “Manage Access” pane.

Microsoft is gradually rolling this out to First Release customers in the following days and it will be completed by the end of August.
