Collacrity’s latest two-minute “Have You Met…” video features Office Delve, a new way of managing content within Office 365 where content finds you based on relevance:
- content you create (no matter where in Office 365 you store it)
- content you interact with (e.g., view, like, comment on)
- content that your colleagues interact with
- content that you have permission to see (no permission, no view)
Delve also includes some personal productivity analytics (in preview) that harken back to the days of Xobni, an e-mail add-in that provided you with information about your e-mail activity.
An aspect of Delve that is difficult to demo, but interesting (and worth watching as the product matures), is that it uses Machine Learning to learn about your patterns and habits, and gets smarter about content relevancy as you use it more.
If you’ve got two minutes to learn something today, Delve in!

The "Consumerization of IT" has created new demand for user experiences, and Microsoft has excelled at the "Enterprization" of consumer applications by adapting the capabilities and even some of the visual style of leading consumer applications to be enterprise-friendly (i.e., managed and controlled in ways that adhere to corporate standards for security, privacy, and reliability).
People doing website or document layouts often need to use filler text to work on the page layout prior to having the content finalized. This week’s two-minute “Have You Met” video introduces a couple of useful, but little-known, functions in Office to automatically create “Lipsum” or random filler text in Office documents. Meet LOREM and RAND:
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.
