SharePoint Podcast Episode #328 -- Hello Kitty Lunchbox
That picture is just terrible. Moving on. In this episode, you get to witness firsthand Todd embracing the life of being supported by his wife. Somewhere along the way, he tells a story about him going to his kid’s school and I think that is where the title comes from. Hard to say. When he drones on about his life I tend to nod off. If you watch and discover any details I should have known, feel free to leave a comment. Until then I will just assume his story was wonderful. Also, while we are talking about kids I give a stellar review of the Lego Batman movie. Very helpful in your SharePoint career.
Passwords Haven’t Disappeared Yet
123456. Qwerty. Iloveyou. No, these are not exercises for people who are brand new to typing. Shockingly, they are among the most common passwords that end users choose in 2021. Research has found that the average business user must manually type out, or copy/paste, the credentials to 154 websites per month. We repeatedly got one question that surprised us: “Why would I ever trust a third party with control of my network?
With all of the shenanigans out of the way, we jump into the meat of the show. Lots to cover this week for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. There is a blog post reminding you about the continued rollout of Conditional Access, the expansion of the file limit to 500MB, in place copying, and downloading multiple files to a zip. All pretty cool stuff and great to see Microsoft continue to make helpful changes to security and usability for the platform. Then, because we are obsessed with PowerShell, we talk about the patterns and practices (PNP) PowerShell for SharePoint with its updates and how to get it all installed. Life changing stuff if I do say so myself.
To round things out, we were going to have Mark Christman from New York on. He wanted to talk about O365 DLP and licensing for mobsters but we ran out of time. So I guess if that is your thing you will have to hit him on Twitter @spaatz965 for more details.
