#Office365 – Plan your Time Away and Focus Time. This is super important, and easy thanks to My Analytics

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Thanks for the great feedback on this topic. Today, I’ll share a typical Monday Routine for me

Plan my weekly Focus Time and Time Away.

I used to do this manually, now thanks to My Analytics this is just 2 clicks. And, also fairly accurate. You can do this in the My Analytics site, I’m an Outlook person so, in the main Insight panel I access to this 2 options

  • Plan your time away
  • Focus Time every day

In example, Focus Time will show the following screen. Here we can automatically schedule 1-2 hours per day to focus. Just click [Book time now] and it will find empty spots in your calendar for this.

This is super awesome, and also super good for our well-being.

Microsoft Research and the importance of breaks and focus time

If someone ask you “Why do you have this Focus time?”, and they expect a more formal answer, this may help. Microsoft Research. They shared a set of articles about the importance of work breaks and “workplace detachment and reattachment” as part of the Microsoft Research group. This information is available here.

Happy coding!

#Office365 – Delay email delivery to normal hours ! Don’t be the one sending emails 📧 at crazy hours …

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

I didn’t expect to have so many good feedback with yesterday’s post about how to short the duration for all your outlook events. So, today goes another tip, this one focused on being kind with your colleagues.

If you work with colleagues in different time zones, or you work outside your working hours, you may want to delay the delivery of an email to fit into the appropriate working hours. In example, if try to send a colleague living in Australia, I’ll get a “Delay Delivery” Inline suggestion.

You can even enable this behavior as the default one, in Insight Settings.

So, a simple check and you may save a colleague to read a new email at night or early morning.

BTW, you may avoid emails at all ! more on that on other posts.

Happy coding!

#Office365 – How to get profile photos from AD/O365 users?

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Here goes a simple one:

How to get profiles users from Office portal ?

You know the profile photos that you see all around in Office 365. In example, in Delve

delve profile photos

If you right click one of the users, you won’t get a save image option, that’s bad.

However there is a simple trick to get here. Just navigate to the following url, using the specific user id for the requested user

https://nam.delve.office.com/mt/v3/people/profileimage?userId=<userid>

In example, when I do this with my Avanade account I got the image !

Super easy !

Happy coding!

#Podcast – NTN 35 – #Office365 overview, as a user and as O365 as a platform

giphy

Hi !

In today’s episode it’s time to give some time to Office 365 services. A few years ago this was a task which will only involve a couple of slides, nowadays it gives us to talk over 90 minutes and much more. Juan Carlos Quijano (@jc_quijano) joined me, and we spent a first half of the episode talking about our experience as users and the 2nd half talking and describing each of the services of the platform.

In this podcast also premieres the news section of Sergio Mabres. Sergio performs a weekly summary of technology news that is really worth taking a look at.

As always, I hope you enjoy it and apologize for the mistakes (if any).

En el episodio de hoy toca repasar un poco los servicios de Office 365. Esto que hace unos años era un repaso en un par de slides, hoy nos da para hablar 90 minutos y mucho más. Me acompaña Juan Carlos Quijano (@jc_quijano), y nos pasamos una 1ra mitad hablando sobre nuestra experiencia como usuarios y la 2da mitad hablando y describiendo cada uno de los servicios de la plataforma.

En este podcast también estreno la sección de noticias de Sergio Mabres. Sergio realiza un resumen semanal de noticias de tecnología que realmente vale la pena echarle un vistazo.

Como siempre, espero que lo disfruten y que disculpen los errores (si es que hubo alguno).
