We had a great turnout for the January Office 365 International User Group meeting! I want to emphasize that this group is open to anyone and everyone that is interested in Office 365!

We started off the meeting talking about the new features and functionality that has been deployed or is planned for Office 365. The best place to keep up to date with what is coming to Office 365 is the Public Roadmap site, http://roadmap.office.com.

Ivan Fiorananti and team from 4ward365.com presented on their tool. It is a very nice reporting and administrative tool for Office 365. Please watch the recording to get the details! Get a free trial 60 day trial specifically for the IUG at http://www.4ward365.com/signup-o365iug/  

After the presentation we had more open discussion. All in all a great meeting! Be on the lookout for the next meeting!

We had some discussion about OneDrive for Business Sync in the meeting and here is a fresh blog post from Hans Brender about a new sync engine, https://hansbrender.wordpress.com/2015/01/28/onedrive-first-release-of-next-generation-sync-client/
