Microsoft has just enabled guest access in Microsoft Teams. This is a great add for the service and allows us to collaborate easier and more with our external parties.

This is going to be a short blogpost on the updated experience on what it looks like for a user doing a out of the box Azure AD Join in the Anniversary Edition of Windows 10. There is a few and cool new things giving the user a much better experience.
One thing to notice is that Convenience Pin is disabled by default for Domain Joined or Azure AD Joined machines. Read on to learn how this affects the users.
Azure AD Join was introduced in Windows 10 and allows a Windows 10 device to register with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and allows Azure AD users to sign-in to the device using their work credentials or more commonly know as their O365 credentials.
Users on these devices will enjoy Single Sign-On (SSO) to Office 365 or other SaaS applications.

So this post is gonna focus on the OOBE experience of a new users experience when logging into a new computer for the first time. I am sorry for the norwegian language in the screenshots I have made, but you will understand what they are about anyway 🙂 Continue reading
The Outlook app now uses Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)-based authentication for Exchange Online mailboxes in Office 365, replacing the previously used basic authentication method. The ADAL-based authentication stack enables Outlook to engage in browser-based authentication with Office 365. Continue reading
In current build 10122 it will at first look as you are not able to connect your Microsoft Account (MSA) after you have Azure Domain joined your device. This is just an lack in GUI. I will show you a way to do this in build 10122 to make you able to be both Azure AD Domain joined and at the same time access the Store and the other MSA-integrated functions in Windows 10
UPDATE: It seems that in current build the connect MSA is still missing, but my solution in this post does not work the same way anymore. Investegating…
