For the first episode of 2022, Paul Robichaux and I didn't think we'd still be talking about Microsoft Exchange. But, here we are - as with the new year, new problems in Exchange On-Premises greeted Exchange admins. On the show this week we discuss Y2K22 first, and then take a deep dive into why 2022 is beginning, yet again, with Exchange On-Premises issues.
Viva Learning was launched to GA (General Availability) at Ignite 2021 Fall Edition and rolled out to commercial Microsoft 365 tenants during the last months of 2021. Your employees will, by default, be able to begin using Viva Learning right away without any IT administrator action to enable it or configure it. Now is the time to get to grips with what is available to configure, and how you can use the built-in functionality to good effect.
On the show this week, Steve's having a major case of FOMO whilst Paul's at the European Collaboration Summit, joining us live from the expo floor via Teams.

In this week's show, myself and Paul meet up at South Coast Summit - a one-day conference in the UK. For the second time in around a month Paul's over in the UK and in this show we walk and talk on a surprisingly sunny October morning, discussing some of the key things we've learnt from the conference, and the benefits of a large independent conference that covers more than just Microsoft 365.
On the show this week, I'm joined by new Microsoft MVP and Practical 365 writer, Mike Weaver as co-host since Paul Robichaux is away this week, and of course Mike does a sterling job providing perspective on the week's news alongside myself. Later in the episode though, Paul dropped in for our chat with Microsoft's Greg Taylor - who is back on the technical side of Microsoft Exchange Online working on solving one of today's most important issues - getting rid of Basic Authentication.
