I appreciate the opportunity to lead this group over the past year. It’s been a wonderful experience.
As you know by now, though, Microsoft has decided to end their experiment with “Access in the Cloud” applications.
They will end availability of Access Webs Apps on their Office 365 platform as of the end of March, 2018. That means, for us, there’s no need to continue meeting regularly.
Those of you who have an on-premises SharePoint Site, of course, won’t see the end of support for AWAs for at least the next version, probably 5 to 10 years.
We won’t close our doors just yet. The videos of your meetings will remain available for the time being.
Good luck and thanks.
