Celebrating Women's History Month

An image of a collage of women working at Microsoft. In honor of Women's History Month, we decided to interview a few of the women who are a part of our Modern Work Supportability Women's group. A few years later, the Women at Microsoft group in Charlotte was created and I began to attend their events. In March 2020, I attended the annual WAM conference in New York, which was a fun and enriching experience to meet many women in different roles across Microsoft.

Learn how to enable the Microsoft Loop app, now in Public Preview

An image of the Microsoft Loop app on a desktop device. We are excited to announce that Microsoft Loop is now in Public Preview! The Loop app is opt-in during our Public Preview, so as an IT Admin, you need to follow the steps below for your users to experience it, otherwise it is disabled. With Loop, you can create and share Loop components-portable pieces of content that sync across all the places they have been shared including, Microsoft Teams, Outlook, Word for the web, Whiteboard, and the Loop app. Learn more about the end-user value of the Loop app here in our announcement blog. Create a security group that will contain all the users in your organization who you want to grant access to the Loop app during Public Preview.

Reinventing collaboration with AI in Microsoft Loop

An image of the Experiments tab within the Loop app settings providing toggles to enable or disable Copilot and Jumpstart Workspace. Participants in our initial feedback sessions love that they can continue to work with Copilot even after it generates initial text - and we think you will too. While we guide you towards writing requests with our examples, these should not limit how you use Copilot in Loop. Spin up new content and tweak it - Copilot can help you draft a newsletter or come up with a list of ideas to get the ball rolling. If you need to explore some options before getting more eyes on a draft - just use Copilot to sample different tones and help you rephrase content based on your intent. Copilot in Loop builds on our existing commitments to data security and privacy in the enterprise. Copilot automatically inherits your organization's security, compliance, and privacy policies for Microsoft 365. -------------------- Read more at Source: Microsoft Tech Community Microsoft 365 Blog

The SharePoint storage platform supports the Loop app

Today marks the start of the Microsoft Loop app journey. The Loop app is now available in public preview! Loop is about people - people who want to create together with ease, no matter where they are or what tools they use. SharePoint provides the underlying storage and collaboration technology for Loop. Enabling products like Loop to build and innovate quickly on the SharePoint platform requires significant planning and work. Leveraging B-Tree graph nodes allows us to unlock powerful collaboration capabilities and unmatched flexibility in a data structure that works for existing file types but also natively supports Fluid Framework, the underlying tech for Microsoft Loop. Security and Compliance - By building on the core SharePoint platform, Loop components, pages, and workspaces inherit all of SharePoint's industry-leading work on compliance and security. Congratulations and thank you to our Loop colleagues! We love being in the Loop. -------------------- Read more at Source: Microsoft Tech Community SharePoint Blog
