What's new in Learning Pathways version 3

Microsoft Learning Pathways just launched with version 3.0. In this blog I'll provide an overview of what has updated with this new version of Learning Pathways. If you don't know what Learning Pathways is check out my blog or Microsoft documentation. If you already have Learning Pathways you can manually deploy the app package to your app catalog to update the application.

New Content

New content has been added for the following apps: 
  • Teams
  • Outlook
  • OneDrive
  • Planner
  • Sway
  • OneDrive
In addition to these updates for existing applications two additional areas now have content: 
  • Accessibility 

  • Access

New Features

Microsoft Success Center

The Microsoft Success Center provides you with all the information you need to know what's going on inside of Learning Pathways such as how to customize Learning Pathways, to helping you plan you training content, and even provides and overview of What's New, and What's changed. 



Playlist Navigation

It is now easier than ever to navigate between the different assets inside of a playlist. With the new central nav you can see a drop down of all of the content inside of a playlist.

Full Screen Mode

Right next to the new centralized playlist navigation is the new option for full screen mode. so you can view more content without any navigation or headers. 


Copy a Playlist

Finally there is the new copy a playlist feature. There is a good chance that you've wanted to or needed to slightly modify and existing playlist because you haven't rolled out one particular feature. With the new copy feature you can now copy an existing playlist and modify it to your heart's content, no more having to create a brand new playlist from scratch just to hide or modify one playlist asset. The best part about this is if you copy a default playlist and make changes to it, the assets that are from Microsoft will continue to get updates if content changes for that asset.

PowerApps Delegation Warning

Update Aug 15 2019 - Microsoft has updated PowerApps to allow for some complex SharePoint data delegation, this will hopefully resolve most issues you were seeing when working with SharePoint data: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/sharepoint-delegation-improvements/

If you've tried to use the Filter, LookUp or Search actions in PowerApps you have seen the yellow warning error that shows a 'delegation warning' and you might have even ignored it because your PowerApp was working fine in testing. However once you get into larger data sets your PowerApp will have some issues so in this blog I will attempt to explain what the delegation warning is and how you can fix your PowerApp.

Delegation So what even is Delegation in PowerApps? When doing any sort of data manipulation for an app, PowerApps will try to push the processing of that data to the source system instead of doing all of the manipulation in the app. This is done to increase the efficiency of your app and r…

Getting started with Self Service Support in O365 with Learning Pathways

One thing that comes up in every O365 rollout is the need for employees to have some sort of self-service support in O365. In the past this would mean the learning and development teams would have to create artifact on artifact of material to help employees find the answers they are looking for. Now in Office 365 Microsoft has created a custom learning module to address this need. The learning pathways solution can be customized to the app mix that is used by your organization and brings in the relevant Microsoft resources into an app in your tenant. Provisioning Learning Pathways The learning pathways solution will provision a SharePoint application and will require a SharePoint App Catalog. If you do not have an App Catalog in O365 and one will need to be created. You can install the learning pathways solution in one of two ways, the first is to use the pnp provisioning service (recommended), which will automatically create and set-up the site collection. The second option is to ma…

Every week I'll be posting a quick summary of O365 updates included in the admin weekly digest email that you can sign up for via the admin Message Center: https://admin.microsoft.com/AdminPortal/Home#/MessageCenter -these emails include items posted to the message center over the last week and come out every Monday.
Lots of updates and reminders to some already talked about features this week. The one I am most excited about is the new site branding and mega menu navigation (Roadmap IDs 33131, 33132, 33138, 43781). The rollout for this feature was pushed back a bit but is now rolling out. There has also been a delay in the rollout for SharePoint reminders based on date fields (Roadmap ID 34267), and the new icons for the waffle which are rolling out soon as well (Roadmap ID 45441).

The updates this week also sent reminders for the Planner Notifications in a Teams activity feed that was covered last week (Roadmap ID 45878), as well as the opt-in toggle for try the early version of…
