Google rolled out improvements to PDF, Microsoft Office, and image file previewing in Google Drive, making it simpler to use. OneNote launched a new OneNote Staff Notebook API for Office 365, and the Office 365 team released the Service Assurance Dashboard as part of the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center.

Improvements to PDF, Microsoft Office, image file previewing in Google Drive on web – The Google Drive preview feature is a way to quickly preview files you’d typically open in Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, or photo editors. Available in Gmail, Inbox, and Google Drive, previewing a file is a useful and fast experience and works across a wide range of files. Starting this week, Google is rolling out some improvements to the preview feature to make it simpler and easier to use.

Automate OneNote staff notebook creation and more with new API – The OneNote team is excited to announce the launch of the new OneNote Staff Notebook API for Office 365! Since the launch of OneNote Staff Notebooks last year, the only way to create staff notebooks was through the OneNote Staff Notebook app. Thanks to all the feedback they’ve received from school leaders, teachers and IT admins, they’ve made it possible to now create OneNote staff notebooks programmatically as well. What this means is that IT admins, Microsoft Education partners and others can automate the creation and updates of OneNote staff notebooks across a school or district.

Office 365 Service Assurance—gaining your trust with transparency – The Office 365 team wants to ensure that you have access to the information that is relevant for you to perform a risk assessment on Office 365 services—on demand. Access to this information should be seamless. To achieve these goals, they have released the Service Assurance Dashboard as part of the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center, which provides you immediate access to audit reports and more.
