- New Privacy change alerts are available! Get notified when the privacy of Teams or Groups changes from private to public and keep your content secure. You can enable the alerts to watch over your whole environment or select specific workspaces.
- Syskit Point now supports Sharing Links with review mode enabled. You can discover the new type of sharing links in Syskit Point reports and, if needed, easily remove them with the help of the provided Remove action.
- Syskit Point sync was optimized! Syskit Point now only syncs OneDrive files, group channels and settings, and users based on changes detected with the help of delta links, thus saving valuable time and resources.
- Overview screens in Syskit Point are now faster! Sites, Microsoft Teams and Groups, and Users screens are faster, even when dealing with large data sets (we are talking in millions here), and provide an improved user experience. All the data, filters, and views look and feel the same; you will only get the results faster.
- All group types with e-mail are now supported when configuring alerts, creating provisioning templates, or setting up policies. You can now select distribution lists, Microsoft 365 groups, or e-mail enabled security groups, ensuring that the tasks and e-mails are sent to the desired group of users.
- Improved how Syskit Point calculates the Last Modified and Last Activity data. With this improvement, Syskit Point will always fill the Last activity date and that the Last Modified date is older than or equal to Created on date.
- Improved Access Review notifications, naming, and actions are available. The following has changed:
- Syskit Point will now send an e-mail to all owners once the Access Review is completed on their workspaces
- Overdue tasks were renamed Expired
- Syskit Point admins can now request a new Access Review for expired tasks from the Access Review Summary screen
- You can now select the Access Review policy when manually requesting an Access Review for workspaces without an assigned policy.
- Various UX/UI improvements and minor fixes are available. As you probably noticed, Syskit Point 2021.10 switched to new versioning, containing the date when the version was released. This was done to make it easier for you to detect if you’re running an older version of Syskit Point, which would mean that you’re missing out on all the awesome new features we are regularly releasing. To make the most out of Syskit Point, make sure to upgrade to the latest version now!
- Fixed an issue with the Inactive Licenses report, where Licenses assigned to soft deleted users were displayed as inactive.
- Fixed a bug on the Licenses Usage by Service report, where sorting by the Days Since Last Usage column would work incorrectly.
- Fixed an issue where the Users overview report would show duplicate users.
- Fixed a bug with the Archive action, which resulted in Teams being archived, and the connected site staying active. This would then trigger another cycle of lifecycle management tasks where users could not perform the archive action. The issue is now resolved.
- Fixed a bug where e-mail settings defaulted to the singed in user when reconnecting the tenant and giving Global Admin consent.
- Fixed an issue with the Policy violation resolved e-mail for the Orphaned Teams & Groups Policy. The sent e-mail displayed the wrong user under the Resolved by value when a policy was resolved.
- Fixed issues with Analytics reports. When generating the reports, the following error occurred:
System.ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added.
