    New version of Office 365

    Is there a timeline for when all current office 365 tenancies will be updated to the new version by?

    I know you cannot give details of when certain tenancies will be updated but i'm awaiting quite a few of the new features and it'd be nice to know that we should get it by, say christmas or next september etc...

    It's mainly the Address book policies that i'm after, and the shared calendar stuff.

    We were unfortunately singed up about 10 days before they started issuing all new accounts with the new version.

    I also want to confirm that i don't need to do anything to get the upgrade, other than just wait of course...

    Yeh we got ours over the summer. I don't like it at all to be honest.

    There are problems with different versions of Internet Explorer as well.

    I have heard end of September but that was awhile ago.
    The upgrade is pretty straight forward when it happened to us but we dont use the public site part.

    The vast majority of upgrades will be completed by the end of September, but it's a huge task and some upgrades may spill over into October.

    Thank you very much for the upadated timescale. I understand it's a massive undertaking, it's nice to know where we stand.

    so i should be done by mid October, prefect timing for me with the roll out to students happening in the October half term, should give me just enough time to sort out the ABPs etc.
