Office 365

New feature – SharePoint Online Social Bar

 

New feature: SharePoint Online Social Bar

Major update: General Availability rollout started

Applied to: All customers

The Social Bar is a new Office 365 feature. This feature is scheduled to roll out to Targeted Release customers later this week, and it will be available for all organizations on April 1, 2018.
This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 23708.

[How does this affect me?]
The Social Bar will appear on all modern SharePoint Online pages with the exception of the home page of a site. It will give your users the ability to like a page, see the number of views, likes, and comments on a page, and see the people who have liked a page. This visibility will be available to anyone that has been granted access to view the page.
This feature will be launched default on. As administrator, if you wish to disable Social Bar for your organization, you can do so with the following PowerShell command:

To disable Social Bar on a tenant level:
Set-SPOTenant -SocialBarOnSitePagesDisabled $true

To disable social bar on a site level:
Set-SPOSite -Identity https://tenant.sharepoint.com -SocialBarOnSitePagesDisabled $true

Announcement

Microsoft Forms is a part of Office 365 that allows your users to quickly and easily create custom quizzes, surveys, questionnaires, registrations and more. When you create a quiz or form, you can invite others to respond to it using any web browser, even on mobile devices. As results are submitted, you can use built-in analytics to evaluate responses. Form data, such as quiz results, can be easily exported to Excel for additional analysis or grading.

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Set-up-Microsoft-Forms-cc52287a-4550-464d-9a1b-457bf9df2240?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
What is the limit on the number of responses for Microsoft Forms?
You can receive up to 5,000 responses. If you require more, we recommend exporting existing responses to an Excel workbook, and then clearing these from your survey or quiz. This will enable you to collect more responses once cleared.

Will Microsoft Forms replace Microsoft InfoPath?
No. Microsoft InfoPath was a solution to create customizable forms that can enable automated workflows, whereas Microsoft Forms is a basic, lightweight app for quickly collecting information via surveys and quizzes.
Microsoft InfoPath is being replaced by SharePoint Lists, Flow, and PowerApps – modern solutions for digitizing traditional company forms, automating workflows, and transforming business processes. Learn more.
