Happy Friday, MTC’ers! I hope you’ve had a good week and that March is treating you well so far. Let’s dive in and see what’s going on in the community this week!


MTC Moments of the Week


First up, we are shining our MTC Member of the Week spotlight on a community member from Down Under, @Doug_Robbins_Word_MVP! True to his username, Doug has been a valued MVP for over 20 years and an active contributor to the MTC across several forums, including M365, Word, Outlook, and Excel. Thanks for being awesome, Doug!


Jumping to events, on Tuesday, we closed out February with a brand new episode of Unpacking Endpoint Management all about Group Policy migration and transformation. Our hosts @Danny Guillory and @Steve Thomas (GLADIATOR) sat down for a fun policy pizza party with guests @mikedano, @Aasawari Navathe, @LauraArrizza, and @Joe Lurie from the Intune engineering team. We will be back next month to have a conversation about Endpoint Data Loss Prevention and Zero Trust – click here to RSVP and add it to your calendar!


Then on Wednesday, we had our first AMA of the new month with the Microsoft Syntex team. This event focused on answering the community’s questions and listening to user feedback about Syntex’s new document processing pay-as-you-go metered services with a stacked panel of experts including @Ian Story, @James Eccles, @Ankit_Rastogi, @jolenetam, @Kristen_Kamath, @Shreya_Ganguly, and @Bill Baer. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the discussion, and stay tuned for more Syntex news!


 And last but not least, over on the Blogs, @Hung_Dang has shared a skilling snack for you to devour during your next break, where you can learn how to make the most of your time with the help of Windows Autopilot!


Unanswered Questions – Can you help them out?


Every week, users come to the MTC seeking guidance or technical support for their Microsoft solutions, and we want to help highlight a few of these each week in the hopes of getting these questions answered by our amazing community!


In the Exchange forum, @Ian Gibason recently setup a Workspace mailbox that is not populating the Location field when using Room Finder, leading to user requests being denied. Have you seen this before?


Perhaps you can help @infoatlantic over in the Intune forum, who’s looking for a way to sync a list of important support contacts to company owned devices.

For this week’s fun fact…




Did you know that the little wave-shaped blob of toothpaste you squeeze onto your toothbrush has a name? It’s called a “nurdle” (the exact origin of this term isn’t clear), but there was even a lawsuit in 2010 that Colgate filed against Glaxo (the maker of Aquafresh) to prohibit them from depicting the nurdle in their toothpaste packaging. Glaxo countersued, and the case was settled after a few months. The more you know!


Have a great weekend, everyone!
