Embedding a Microsoft Stream channel on a web page

Microsoft Stream is the successor of Office 365 Video, and basically an enterprise video service where people can upload, view, and share videos securely. Since last month (20th of June 2017) Microsoft Stream is GA, which means it has left the preview phase and is now fully backed and supported by Microsoft.

One of the cool features of Stream is the possibility to easily generate embed code for a video, which you can then copy/paste to a web page of your choice (SharePoint pages being an obvious choice). Microsoft explains quite well how this works in their own documentation: stream.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/stream-portal-embed/.

For a customer I was looking for a way to embed an entire channel in a SharePoint page though. Continue reading

New modern UI for (external) sharing in SharePoint Online

Last week I was doing a last check-up on my slide deck and demos for SharePoint Saturday London (June 24th, 2017) when I noticed the user interface for sharing in the modern UI had changed. I updated my slides accordingly and showed the new UI last Saturday for the first time in a session of mine. People were impressed, and so was I. It looks slick and intuitive, but there’s still some things you really want to know about the various sharing options, so I decided to write a blog article about this. Continue reading

Promoting Azure Information Protection labels to SharePoint metadata column

Edit 1-March-2017:
Microsoft has reached out to ask me if I would be so kind to stress that the solution described below is a temporary solution and it could be that things might change in the future. Hereby stated. Now on to the article itself.

On February 8th this year, Microsoft made the latest version of Azure Information Protection (AIP) general available. You can find the announcement here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2017/02/08/azure-information-protection-december-update-moves-to-general-availability/

What was also part of that release, but wasn’t mentioned in the announcement, is the integration with SharePoint metadata columns. Before this GA release, some integration was already possible, but that required registry hacks on local client machines. With the latest release it is possible to do the configuration in the Azure Portal. There are some caveats, but we’ll get to that later in this article. Continue reading
