People doing website or document layouts often need to use filler text to work on the page layout prior to having the content finalized.

Microsoft recently announced the (limited) release of the new lists in SharePoint Online, as part of Office 365. For those of you who use lists extensively, I think you’ll find some significant changes and improvements here, and Microsoft has opened the door to the use of “PowerApps” (still in preview, video on this coming soon) and Microsoft Flow, for creation of SharePoint-aware mobile apps by “citizen developers,” ie, people like me who don’t have coding chops but who understand the application, can configure, drag drop, etc.
Have a look, and don’t hesitate to contact Collacrity if we can shed more light on the subject.
If you have two minutes to learn something new today…

As always, if you have feedback, please don’t hesitate to join the conversation by commenting in-line or contacting Collacrity directly.
Please enjoy the first in a series of “Have You Met…?” videos, designed to give you a quick, two-minute introduction to a new capability or piece of technology that is relevant to information workers.
This first one is focused on the recently released (to First Wave adopters — ask your Office 365 Administrator if you don’t know if this means you) “Modern Document Library Experience” in SharePoint. We provide a brief overview of some of the changes, and some new capabilities, of modern document libraries.
We’re very interested in your feedback, topics you’d like an introduction to, or other ideas for content. Please contact Collacrity with your feedback!
