  6. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We&#39;re supporting InfoPath but our big focus across Microsoft is PowerApps and Flow as you saw us announce last May and ramp over last year</p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884452578259488768">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  7.  
  8. <p>Once again, InfoPath will be replaced. But not yet. The support statement on InfoPath is at <a href="https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2014/01/31/update-on-infopath-and-sharepoint-forms/">https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2014/01/31/update-on-infopath-and-sharepoint-forms/</a>. I cannot believe this is still a question people have to ask.</p>

  10. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Working on it! More to share at <a href="https://twitter.com/MS_Ignite">@MS_Ignite</a> this September.

  12. <p>Sigh, again with the "branding." It is quite evident that there is no solution that will please <a href="http://quoteinvestigator.com/2013/12/11/cannot-fool/">all of the people, all of the time</a>. More significant -- the first of several mentions of Ignite. I suspect there will again be substantial announcements at <a href="https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/ignite/default.aspx">Ignite</a> for SharePoint. I will be there. Look me up if you want to connect.</p>
  13.  
  14. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We love Publishing Sites. Shipping Comm Sites V1 this summer &amp; will add more branding, workflow, roll-up, news customization, etc.</p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884454544691707904">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  15.  
  16. <p>Jeff expanded his answer on this in a video: <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884454780369739776">https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884454780369739776</a></p>
  17.  
  18. <p>Reading between the lines here, I expect that Publishing Sites will see no further investment. But the most popular Publishing features will get ported to Communication Sites. (Specifically mentioned was <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884455021655367682">variations</a>.) Sadly, we have no time-frame for those ports, so organizations will need to evaluate Comm sites to see if they meet the requirements. I fear that they won't for many, so Publishing sites will get used, pushing the Comm sites roll out far into the future for those orgs. One of the downsides to shipping minimally-viable products. </p>

  20. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Yes doc sets will continue - while we&#39;ve updated a lot of the UX, we know we have more to and this one a candidate for &#39;18</p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884455059781672960">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  21.  
  22. <p>I have a number of clients using document sets and it is a roadblock for Modern. This is a confirmation that they will be improved.</p>
  23.  
  24. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Hey Tim, the biggest entry points are SharePoint home, rollup of news, and the SharePoint mobile apps. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Online?src=hash">#Online</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/OnPrem?src=hash">#OnPrem</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TeperTakeover?src=hash">#TeperTakeover</a></p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884457185039704065">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  25.  
  26. <p>This is a bit of a disappointment, since the answer is really just a work-around. But, as soon as the <a href="https://dev.office.com/sharepoint/docs/spfx/extensions/overview-extensions">SPFx Extensions</a> get released, we can build this ourselves.</p>
  27.  
  28. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/SharePoint?src=hash">#SharePoint</a> in <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Office365?src=hash">#Office365</a> best experience, value, security.

  29.  
  30. <p>So, cloud first. Cloud is where Microsoft sees the market going, so they are going there as well. That makes sense and provides the funding for improvements to SharePoint. Jeff seems to be hinting that an on-premise version update is a year away. (Product versions are tied to fiscal years and Microsoft is currently in fiscal 2018.)</p>
  31.  
  32. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We are going to make it easier to adapt modern sites but if you are running classic sites, we have no plans to turn them off. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TeperTakeover?src=hash">#TeperTakeover</a></p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884459542896967680">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  33.  
  34. <p>When the Modern UI first started to rollout, the messaging was a bit muddied. This should clear it up -- the classic stuff will be there as long as you need it. </p>
  35.  
  36. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">All sites in SharePoint are future proof but we currently have no plans around Contact Lists. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TeperTakeover?src=hash">#TeperTakeover</a></p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884459964634288128">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  37.  
  38. <p>So, while Document Sets will get some attention, Contact Lists will not.  I suspect that there are other list templates that will get left behind. If there is ont that is important to you, I suggest getting it on <a href="https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/">UserVoice</a>!</p>
  39.  
  40. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We are working on filtering/sorting in large lists and library filtering. More to share at <a href="https://twitter.com/MS_Ignite">@MS_Ignite</a>! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TeperTakeover?src=hash">#TeperTakeover</a></p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884460251877003264">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  41.  
  42. <p>I'm sure that <a href="https://twitter.com/sympmarc">Marc</a> wants to hear about <a href="http://sympmarc.com/tag/5000-item-limit/">removing the limits</a>, but for now we have to live with improvements in showing a subset of the large list.</p>
  43.  
  44. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">News! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/SharePoint?src=hash">#SharePoint</a> Comm Sites to First Release to all tenants this week <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TeperTakeover?src=hash">#TeperTakeover</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/andyhaon">@andyhaon</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/mkashman">@mkashman</a></p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884460656593731584">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  45.  
  46. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Oh and SP Mobile for iOS and Android get native Comm Sites support by end of July</p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884461073755127809">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  47.  
  48. <p>Another source of confusion -- how to get the new Communication Sites. Of course, I recommend a separate tenant for first release as a #BestPractice.</p>
  49.  
  50. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint">@SharePoint</a> Will it be possible to transform the SharePoint Online Root Site and old team sites into Communication Sites? <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/tepertakeover?src=hash">#tepertakeover</a></p>&mdash; Olga (@olgaamarti) <a href="https://twitter.com/olgaamarti/status/884451145061675008">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  51.  
  52. <p>A great question that was not answered. However...</p>
  53.  
  54. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Modern pages and parts can go into existing sites and subsites which will get you much of this</p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884462142170124288">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  55.  
  56. <p>So, it is possible to "modernize" a site. If you don't want to wait for an automated switch, you could start creating modern pages and set it as the home page. But, I'm not 100% sure the rollup stuff all works as expected.</p>
  57.  
  58. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Too big a change for Feature Pack. Working on plans for next server which will get part of new UX. Will share when plan baked.</p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884462754844651520">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  59.  
  60. <p>No hope for Modern UI on-premises anytime soon. But there is a new on-premises version coming as we learned earlier.</p>
  61.  
  62. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Graph API expanding to take on more and more SharePoint to simplify x-MS - will happen in steps and well support both</p>&mdash; Microsoft SharePoint (@SharePoint) <a href="https://twitter.com/SharePoint/status/884465066652844032">July 10, 2017</a></blockquote>  
  63.  
  64. <p>As is usual for a general-audience event, just a single mention of development at the end.</p>
  65.  
  66. <p>Lastly, Jeff's parting message.  </p>

This marks the 7th time that I have been awarded. Different this time is the award category. After four years in SharePoint and two years in Officer Server and Services, I am now in the Office Development category. (This is completely my fault -- I categorized my contributions incorrectly in the past.)</p>
  85.  
  86. <p>The contribution time frame for the award precedes the announcement by one quarter, so I am 3 months into what I hope will be another award. For this year, I have committed to a few development-related initiatives that I think will help the <a href="http://dev.office.com">Office Developer</a> community:</p>
  87.  
  88. <ul>
  89. <li>participation in the <a href="https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-vs-extension">Visual Studio extension for SharePoint Framework</a></li>
  90. <li>creation of item templates for the extension to jump-start legacy SharePoint developers</li>
  91. <li>an increase in participation at <a href="https://spsevents.org">SharePoint Saturday events</a>
  92. (including <a href="http://spsnyc2017.eventbrite.com/">NYC in a few weeks</a>!)</li>
  93. <li>speaking at different conferences (<a href="http://www.itdevconnections.com/dc17/Public/Enter.aspx">IT/Dev Connections</a>, <a href="http://www.sharepointfest.com/">SharePoint Fest</a>) to expand the Office Development message</li>
  94. <li>speaking at the <a href="https://splive360.com/ECG/live360events/Events/Orlando-2017/Office-and-Sharepoint.aspx">Live! 360 conference</a> to reach developers outside of the Office/SharePoint ecosystem</li>
  95. </ul>
  96.  
  97. <p>Part of what I think makes the MVP community so terrific is the willingness to share and help others. So, if you have ideas, questions, comments, whatever -- please speak up! You can reach me on <a href="https://twitter.com/paulschaeflein">Twitter</a> or <a href="https://www.facebook.com/SchaefleinConsulting/">Facebook</a>. I would love to hear from you.</p>
  98.  
  99. <p>I must thank Microsoft, the SharePoint product group, the Office Developer Program and the MVP program for continuing to present me the award. I want to thank my fellow MVPs, all of whom inspire me and answer my many questions. And I need to thank my family for putting up with the travel, the countless geek jokes and the many hours that inevitable get spent figuring out some crazy issue.</p><div class="feedflare">

  149. <p>Microsoft is releasing this security advisory to inform customers that a new version of Azure Active Directory (AD) Connect is available that addresses an Important security vulnerability.</p>
  150.  
  151. <p>The update addresses a vulnerability that could allow elevation of privilege if Azure AD Connect Password writeback is misconfigured during enablement. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could reset passwords and gain unauthorized access to arbitrary on-premises AD privileged user accounts. <br>
  152. The issue is addressed in the latest version (1.1.553.0) of Azure AD Connect by not allowing arbitrary password reset to on-premises AD privileged user accounts.</p>

This is quite convenient for bouncing around the various sites. However, not every Office 365 administrator is also administering Azure. </p>
  213.  
  214. <p>For developers, this becomes more problematic. If you get a demonstration tenant, or a trial tenant or a developer tenant, the link to the Azure Portal prompts you to sign-up for Azure. But all that is typically needed is to manage users, groups and applications.</p>
  215.  
  216. <p>What is more appropriate, in my opinion, is access the new Azure Active Directory Portal instead. (<a href="https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/273493-office-365-admin/suggestions/19537657-replace-the-link-to-the-azure-portal-with-a-link-t">Add your vote to User Voice!</a>) The AAD Portal allows managing the directory that powers the Office 365 tenant, including applications. This is a much better option for developers.</p>
