Recommended Ignite 2020 Videos for Microsoft 365

Most of Microsoft’s Ignite content this year was pre-recorded due to COVID. You can find the videos at the Virtual Hub. The videos below focus on Microsoft Search, Microsoft 365 Groups, SharePoint Online, and networking in Microsoft 365.

Here are my suggestions for content based on area.

Microsoft Search

Metadata and Content Types

Project Cortex/SharePoint Syntex

Microsoft Groups

Microsoft 365 Networking

SharePoint Intranet

Project Nucleus

I hope you’ve found these videos useful and informative. There has been a lot of great content at Ignite this year and of course, many videos I didn’t list on Microsoft Teams, Exchange, and more.

SharePoint Server vNext is a Subscription Product

SharePoint Server vNext has been briefly mentioned in an announcement, oddly enough, about Exchange Server vNext. Like Exchange Server vNext and Skype for Business Server vNext, SharePoint Server vNext will be based on a subscription model, similar to Microsoft 365.

Don’t hold your breath until it is released, but get your Windows Servers prepped! And of course, as information comes out about vNext, I’ll make sure to keep you updated here.
