Rand 3.0 Product Release Notes, Oct. 12, 2016

We’ve added two new features to this week’s product release: the Office 365 Meetings and Office 365 Outlook tiles. These two tiles weave your existing meetings and emails into your digital workplace, expanding your seamless integration experience.

We’ve released these two new tiles as ‘Tiles in Preview’, and are eager to hear comments on their use. As always, you can expect to see improvements made based off the feedback we receive—we’re listening!

For details on the Office 365 Meetings and Office 365 Outlook tiles, as well as descriptions on each bug crushed, read on down.

New feature: Office 365 Meetings Tile

In order to bring what you need into your LiveTiles Digital Workplace, we have implemented the Office 365 Outlook Meetings tile (you can find it under the new “Personal” category in the tile ribbon).

 

Leveraging Microsoft’s Graph API, this tile will allow you to not only be able to view meetings up to a week in advance, but it also gives you more information by clicking on an event to view the meeting details.

When you click on a meeting, a panel from the side of the page will appear, providing more information. This includes displaying the scheduled meeting time, as well as meeting contents, location and participants.

 

If you click on the portrait of a person in the meeting you are viewing, you will be able to view more information about that person, including their email, phone number, location, job title, as well as your recent emails and upcoming meetings with that particular user. In addition, you will be able to send an email, start a Skype for Business chat or set up another meeting with the person from this view panel.

 

We are releasing this as a ‘Tile in Preview.’ We expect to make improvements based on your feedback. We are especially interested in your experiences with the authentication flow for the tile. We have made it as seamless as possible, but want to hear your “real world” use experience.

Please note: this tile is for Office 365 use only.

New feature: Office 365 Outlook Tile

The second addition to expand your Digital Workplace experience is the new Office 365 Outlook Email tile (you can find it under the new “Personal” category in the tile ribbon).

 

This tile allows you to view your ten most recent emails. It automatically updates when someone sends you a new email, so you are always kept up to date. If you would like to view more information from an email, you are able to click on the item, which displays the email in a side panel.

 

Once the panel is open, you are able to see the entire email and can interact with it. In addition, if you click the user’s picture in the top right of the corner (or initials if they do not have a picture) you will be taken to their personal panel.

 

Here, you can view more information about that person, including items such as email, phone number, your recent emails and upcoming meetings with that particular user. Additionally, you can send an email, start a Skype for Business chat or set up another meeting with the person you are viewing from this panel.

Like the Meetings tile, we are releasing this as a ‘Tile in Preview.’ We expect to make improvements based on your feedback. We are especially interested in your experiences with the authentication flow for the tile. We have made it as seamless as possible, but want to hear your “real world” use experience.

Please note: this tile is for Office 365 use only.

Bug fixes

People Search tile – Need permissions to LiveTiles Design subsite to view results This has been fixed so that you can now view the results of the People Search page without needing access to the LiveTiles Design subsite.
On-premises – Polyfill Library doesn’t work well with MicrosoftAjax.debug.js This has been fixed to work better with MicrosoftAjax.debug.js
If a page loaded over http and upgrade unsecure tags are enabled, the pages do not load in end user view This has been fixed so that pages that are created on HTTP have the upgrade unsecure tags disabled on page creation, and pages created over HTTPS are created with this option checked.
Certain on-premises versions don’t have SP.Folder.moveTo, which crashes Announcements List page when adding attachments This has been fixed so that adding attachments to an Announcements List page in on-premises environments do not cause it to crash.
Add Web Part tile – InfoPath Form Uncaught Type Error e.delete This has been fixed so that when applying an InfoPath form, the page won’t get stuck trying to load.
SharePoint documents library insert list item links in Documents tile Links now work on the Documents tile and Documents List page.
