The Changing Roles of Office 365 Admins
In this video, MVP Tony Redmond and our CTO and MVP Paul Robichaux deliberate the challenges for Admins in Office 365 as it is becoming a far more integrated environment.
Before you even open the latest version of Archive Shuttle, you’ll notice it looks a bit different. We put our designer to work creating a flashy looking icon for Archive Shuttle 9.2.
We think the new icon is a better representation of the power and speed of our migration solution.
The next thing you’re likely to notice is that it’s faster and easier to use. We focused on improving operational efficiency with this release. In fact, more than half of the items we added in 9.2 were dedicated to improving operational efficiency. What’s better? Most of those items were sourced from users. We improved the UI’s usability and automated many common everyday tasks. For example:
The ability to create/assign tags directly where they are used was introduced. It’s now available on these pages: User Information, Bulk Mapping, Existing Mapping, Stage 1, and Stage 2.
Journal Explosion was introduced in Archive Shuttle 8.0. It delivers an instance of a message from a journal archive to all its participants (both the sender and recipients). It also distributes messages extracted from journal reports to target containers. We’ve now expanded this powerful feature to support PST as a target. We now support Exchange, Exchange Online, and PST as Journal Explosion targets.
As with every release, you might not ever notice some of the behind-the-scenes changes. You’ll probably just notice everything’s running a bit smoother. A few examples:
We introduced the Cargo Bay feature earlier this year. When it’s enabled, item data associated with finished mappings is moved from active tables to a backup database (the Cargo Bay) to minimize necessary records within active tables. Cargo Bay users will notice these enhancements in the latest release:
The Reports page now shows failed items for mappings archived with Cargo Bay.
I mentioned above that we added support for bulk mapping for PST files archived by SourceOne. We have some more good news for those migrating from SourceOne:
