Week 44 update

When I wrote post about August changes in Microsoft products I was not expecting that it will be so hard to decide which information include in such update – Microsoft is changing a lot (which is great!) and I would like to give you every great link that I came across on the internet but from the other side – if you would have to check every link or article I’ve provided you and read it…such updates will be pointless because I want it to give you quick glance of “how things are going in general in MS”.

That’s why I came up with new idea – week updates! Every friday so you can have a lecture for weekend and be updated for next week 🙂

I want to gather information about MS products road map updates (preview/release), some announcements about future plans and great articles that reading give you a lot of value.

 

So – here we go!

Events

Roadmap updates

Articles

  1. Onedrive was always kind of mistery in terms of integration with other MS tools, licensing and priv/biz. Now it’s not! 
  2. Roadmap for Skype for Business capabilities coming to Microsoft Teams
  3. An introduction to Azure Web Apps on Linux
  4. Want to introduce your employees to the newest updates in SharePoint Online? At office.com/training, there are 3 new SharePoint Online training courses to help users get up and running

 

Have a great weekend!

Problem

A colleague from my company asked me is there an easy way to get all terms from Managed Metadata Service in SharePoint Online. I told him:

– “Yeah I know. But I need to export all terms, with their structure path and present them in list” (don’t really remember specific reason – suppose some data science probably). 

– “Oh, I see…”

How to change Todoist task project when task is updated using Flow

Requirement

You need to make automation so when you’ll set a date for any Todoist task it will be moved to special project called “Planned”.

Sounds like piece a cake so you decide to achieve it quick and simple using workflow software like Zapier, IFTTT or Microsoft Flow.

But if something looks easy it means that it will be not, right?

Problems

Actually there are 3 of them.

  1. There is no trigger “Todoist – when a task is updated”. Neither in Zapier, IFTTT or MS Flow.
  2. If you want to check if JSON contains some property (i.e. Date field) and/or JSON property is not empty there is no easy to use function in Zapier or IFTTT
  3. There is no action (block) that allows you to change todoist task project. Neither in Zapier, IFTTT or MS Flow.
