365 Solutions Group would like to let you know that Microsoft have officially announced their Exchange Server 2010 will no longer be supported as of October 13, 2020.
So what exactly does this mean for you?
Most importantly, it means you’ll no longer receive critical security patches and bug fixes, which leaves your organisation open to the risk of security breaches and system instability. You’ll also lose eligibility for technical support, new features or time zone updates.
Let's dive into some details.
Some companies pay top dollar for tools and apps like Trello, DropBox and Evernote – in fact a monthly subscription to the most well-known applications can cost a staggering total of around $182 per month!
But why waste all that money when an Office Business Premium subscription gives you access to all its comparable apps (Planner, OneDrive, OneNote etc) for just $17.20 a month? That’s a massive saving of $164.80 - every month, for each and every staff member.
Not only will you save money, but the Office apps are designed to work together for seamless integration, which provides a much simpler user experience. This is also a more secure solution, as you’ll only have one login and password to manage for each user.
Don't be afraid to make changes, 365 Solutions Group will guide you through the migration process, and can provide training for end users to encourage adoption, if required.

Did you know there’s actually a right and wrong way of setting permissions within SharePoint?
Many companies take advantage of SharePoint’s excellent features for knowledge management, but it’s not always obvious how to control permissions to avoid letting the wrong people compromise your data.

Successful businesses are constantly looking for the best ways to be effective and efficient.
The “Agile” method of project management is a set of practices proven to deliver higher-quality products to happier customers in less time.
Agile teams work in short iterations of typically two weeks, focusing on delivering something concrete to the customer in every iteration. In this way, any emerging changes to the requirements are caught early, and the final product is guaranteed to be what the customer wants. Other Agile practices centre on embedding quality through continuous testing and knowledge sharing.
To help companies start their Agile journey confidently, the celebrated project methodology "Scrum" is often used as a framework. As with any new process, it can sometimes be hard to choose a suitable tool or system to support you.
Microsoft Planner provides the answer for efficient project management. Because it supports Scrum, Planner can manage all your tasks in an Agile way, to ensure the successful delivery of your projects. Planner lets you easily adapt to working with Scrum to give you total confidence in successful delivery every time.
Let’s get down to details.
Office 365 is a suite of applications which maximize efficiency in every part of your organisation and remove barriers between departments, helping the different areas of your business work together.
Let's take a look at a typical example.
At the Microsoft Ignite conference 2019, it was announced that a few of our favourite apps were changing. PowerApps and Microsoft Flow got a name change, and introducing a cool new Artificial Intelligence and bot tool, Power Virtual Agents.
Office 365 applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint are used on a daily basis. However, we all know that there are different versions of those applications, Word 2016, 2013, 2010 etc., and that some businesses might not see the logic of paying more money for higher priced/newer versions. Recently, Microsoft announced that after October 2020, they are modifying their Office 365 services system requirements related to service connectivity, and they will no longer support 2013 as part of the older versions of Office 365 applications.
You might think Microsoft Office is just the set of tools we use every day – Word, Excel and PowerPoint – and yes, these are great applications we couldn’t live without. But the ‘big three’ are only the starting point - there’s a lot more in your Office 365 for business subscription that you might not even know you’re paying for – one of the latest (and greatest) Office apps is Kaizala.
You already know about Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, but Office 365 provides a whole lot more than these applications. Most businesses don’t use all of the tools available to them with their licenses mainly because they aren't aware that they have access to them - and in many cases they are paying for third-party solutions unnecessarily.
What are the hidden gems that come with your Office 365 Business or Enterprise licences? In this blog, we describe some of our favourite tools and how they can solve business problems around team collaboration, communication, manual and/or repetitive business processes, and content creation.
