It is now May in 2020 and spring has come to the Nordic countries. Most of us still work from home. For some it works great and some feel it more cumbersome. For me, it’s more or less Business as usual and the only thing I miss sometimes is meeting my clients and colleagues in real life. Technology is our friend these days, but it is important, of course, to dare to use it and to use it properly.
Just over a year ago I wrote the article “Why do you continue to send (and reply to) email?”
When I wrote the article, I had, for a short time, made a complete conversion and more or less stopped sending internal emails. In the past year, the number of e-mails sent has been a minimum and then limited to responding to e-mails that I have received. Usually when I receive an internal email, I don’t even reply via email, but I continue the conversation in Microsoft Teams instead. Do I miss the internal email? The answer is a resounding NO. I now exclusively use Microsoft Teams and Yammer for collaboration with my colleagues and it flows on incredibly well. Continue reading “Is it difficult to adapt and to stop sending internal emails?”
I myself have relied on “Activity Alerts” in the Security & Compliance Center and it has worked well. As soon as someone deletes, for example, a Team or a Planner, a notification is sent to a team channel in my Governance Center and then I know that it might be something I should look into.

If you are using Office 365 and want to define rules for retention, disposal and archiving, it is not something that is particularly difficult to activate (It is rare that features are difficult to activate…). Continue reading “Office 365 Retention, Disposal and archiving. How hard can it be?”
Many of us are like squirrels. We collect and store more content than we can/should consume.
After some time the content of our Office 365 Tenant becomes a “Content Flea Market”. One of the challenges with a flea market is that it is difficult to get an overview of what is valuable and what is worthless.
What if we could have a function that cleans away old unimportant content and that also ensures that we keep current and important content as long as we need to keep it?
Surely You have a whole lot of various content stored in Your Office 365 Tenant. Probably some of this content should not be deleted and most likely You would benefit from deleting a whole lot of other content that does not qualify as useful, valid or current.
In Your Office 365 Environment (Exchange, OneDrive and SharePoint)
- Do you have a requirement to retain content for a minimum period of time?
- Do You want to permanently delete old content that you are no longer required to keep?
- Do You want to ensure that your users only work with content that is valid, current and relevant to them?
- Do You want to be able to select where the policy should be applied?
Here is an overview of retention policies in Office 365 works and how to do implement it!
