Sharing files up to 10GBs via email, no Cloud Storage required

Its often a real pain sharing large files with others who are not part of your usual team. There are so many cloud storage options and its fairly simple to send a link over to someone. Of course you need to remember to stop sharing too. Not to mention that, depending on the platform, the other person may need to authenticate themselves by a method not available to them, then its creating an account etc, etc.


Too hard!

I been using SendAnywhere for some time now and really like how it self destructs after a week, during that time you can resend it too.

There is no giving someone else access to my my cloud storage, thats a big positive for me. Dont feel happy sending OneDrive, DropBox and G-Drive links.

Its fairly simple:-

  1. From Outlook start a new email adding the To, Subject and Body
  2. Click on the SendAnywhere link
  3. Drag and Drop your file into the SendAnywhere window
  4. Wait for it to upload to the SendAnywhere cloud
  5. Click Send..

Finding Time to meet – The easy way



Its no secret that I am hard to pin down for meetings. I have an extremely busy calendar, that means that a simple meeting invite needs to be at least a week, preferably two, in advance for any sort of chance to lock in a spot. Sure I could share my calendar with internal staff, but what about everyone else? Also, I may not necessarily want to share my calendar.

I know I am not alone, you find it hard to sync calendars?


Some time ago (like 2 years at least) Microsoft introduced FindTime.

What is FindTime?

It is an add-in for Outlook that helps you come to consensus on a meeting time. Once you reach consensus, FindTime sends out the meeting invite on your behalf, eliminating the time consuming back-and-forth usually required to find the best meeting time.

Online meeting? No problem, FindTime will send the meeting join information as well, simply check the Online Meeting box when setting up your options.

OK, so that’s really cool right?

“Microsoft 365 Business Voice” extends Dial-tone to Small and Medium Business



Having found myself in a smaller country and subsequently the home of smaller businesses I have come up against a large show stopper in the past when talking Cloud PBX.

Mobile Phone Teams Dialer

Previously, if you wanted to add Phone System licensing to your users they would need to be licensed as at least E3. This has made adding dial tone to users on Business Essentials or Business Premium a really large jump in licensing cost.

In a nutshell, Microsoft 365 Business Voice is an add-on license that can be added onto Office 365 or Microsoft 365 subscriptions that include Microsoft Teams.

Qualifying plans are:-

Office 365 Business Essentials, Business Premium, E1, E3, A3, or A3; Microsoft 365 Business, E3, or A3

NOTE No more than 300 users.

Teams Calling.png

Currently Microsoft 365 Business Voice is available in Canada and the UK only, with more countries rolling out soon. New Zealand is rumored for sometime in 2020, keep an eye out for a formal announcement.

Microsoft 365 Business Voice is available worldwide from 1 April 2020!

You can either purchase your calling plans from Microsoft or make use of a telco of your own choice by means of Teams Direct Routing.

This is great news for the New Zealand market!
