Microsoft Community Office Hours, Episode 7

In our seventh episode of Microsoft Community Office Hours we once again live streamed this ask-me-anything (AMA) format in two 1-hour sessions. The AMA allows us to connect with each other and also help anyone in the community with questions about Microsoft products and services. We’re holding these events at 8am and 6pm Pacific in an effort to reach folks in Europe and Africa (EMEA) in the earlier session, and across Asia Pacific (APAC) in the later session….and, of course, across the Americas with both times. These sessions are being live streamed to the Office 365 Community page in Facebook at
