Use Microsoft Office Suite Inside Chrome Browser

The gives you quick access to your recent documents, storage, local documents, opens them directly in a fully functional browser version of the respective Office application, and more. This is a bit of old news (well over a year in fact) but I have never really seen anyone else using before so I thought maybe some of my readers might find this useful. I am HUGE fan of extensions and use them extensively.  In fact, I have so many I am constantly fighting with which ones to disable/enable to save space next to the address bar.  I used to have so many that I would often crash the browser or slow my OS down to a standstill.  Although, the second issue is no longer a problem due to the purchase of my Dell Precision laptop (6th generation

The future of SharePoint (and Office 365)

Today Microsoft came out with a mind blowing amount of information, features, previews, and announcements about the future of SharePoint and Office 365 and how it is the core of Microsoft's, its customers, and its partners business.

Microsoft Flow – The MS version of IFTTT

  Microsoft Flow the MS IFTTT Equivalent for Office 365. I was trying to explain Microsoft PowerApps for Office 365 to someone today and I used an example of an IFTTT recipe to describe some of the capabilities of PowerApps.  Since that time I would not necessarily use that analogy, because their is actually, believe it or not, an app for that.  Microsoft Flow which launched only yesterday with no youtube video coverage or major hype from MS, can be reach by the public via https://flow.microsoft.com/ is bypassing Microsoft's normal request for access model and is allowing users to directly sign up right away in "Preview Mode".  Flow Their is a nice video that demonstrates the functionality and at the beginning they say, "Problem is their is no good way to get your apps to talk to each other, connect them, or is there?
