    Great, informative show...but...but...

    "Learning" is not a countable noun - or shouldn't be. The word you want is "Lessons."

    Unless you are being piped over the side, you are not being "onboarded." You are being "hired."

    All this NewSpeak is doubleplus ungood.

    @C R Mudgeon: I admire your laser sharp focus on these issues :)

    This (http://www.inc.com/travis-bradberry/please-stop-saying-these-25-ridiculous-phrases-at-work.html?cid=cp01002wired&mbid=social_fb) recently made the rounds on our team; it is disturbing to see how many we say on a regular basis.

    Personally I have to say that 'onboarding' is firmly stuck in my vocabulary though, as a description of bringing a person or organization onto a new system.

    Can VSTO add-ins be run in Office 365?  Are there equivalents?  for example, clicking a button on the add-in ribbon returns rows of data related to the currently selected row in a spreadsheet.

    Hi Steve,

    Office 365 ProPlus supports the same extensibility model as the Office 2010/2013 clients. You can use your add-ins, but it limits you to desktop Office apps.

    These new add-ins will work on desktop Office, in the browser, in Office running in iOS (soon)/Win 10 Universal (later), Mac, etc.
