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 you

The Behind the Scenes Scope of SharePoint News

I recently had someone ask if there was any way to disable the ability to send a SharePoint news article to an external party and after some clarification it became apparently that even with external sharing completely disabled in the tenant you can, in fact, send a preview of the article to any email address. After some research it became apparent that there is no ability to turn off this functionality which caused some concern of potential data leakage. For reference we are talking about the SharePoint news article 'Send to' functionality shown below.  While a credential is needed to access the full article, any email sent will include an article preview. The article preview doesn't show anything too worrisome as it is just the title, the first few lines of text, and an image but one area that caught my eye was the ability to add in the optional message. After some testing it does not appear that there is any length limit to the text that can be put in the summary, it got
