Hi folks,

We’re excited to announce an updated release to the RMS sharing apps on Windows, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. Shubha Pratiwadibhayankar is a Program Manager on the team and she'll talk about the updates in more detail.

Hello, this is Shubha, Program Manager on the RMS team. We have several RMS sharing app updates for you with this release. Below is a summary:

 RMS sharing app for Windows

We’ve made some great new updates to the RMS sharing app on Windows, which will improve both the user and admin experience. This is a direct result of your comments and feedback.

  • A cool new Outlook add-in that lets you protect and share your attachments right from within Outlook.
  • Updates to the end-user installer – it is now a one-click exe that downloads required files and runs setup. No more zip folders.
  • IT administrators now have a great control on their RMS sharing app deployments:
  • Many fit and finish bug fixes coming directly from the bugs you filed.

  • Is language auto chosen depending on OS language? Is there a way to switch to other language after installation?

    Thank you in advance!

  • Microsoft RMS Add-in Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object ?

    Microsoft Windows 7/Office 2010 Service Pack 2

    Click 'Share Protected' receive the following error message 'Microsoft RMS Add-in Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object'

    Microsoft Windows 7/Office 2013 Service Pack 1

    Works fine

    Any ideas why this is not working?

  • @Andrej - Yes, the OS language will define the RMS sharing app language on the desktop/mobile device.

  • @Desktop Support Engineer: I will suggest you send this to rmcstbeta@microsoft.com. One of the engineers will help debug. I am guessing this is to the state of Microsoft Office on your desktop, but will need to confirm.

  • Do you have an ETA on a RMS Sharing App for MAC?

  • Can I switch language manually?

  • Hi Ryan,
    RMS sharing app for Mac is in the works, and we're targeting this summer for release.
    Stay tuned.

  • Hi Andrzej,
    To change the app language manually, you would need to change your OS/system language.
    The app's language will change based on this.
    You do not need to reinstall.

  • A version for my Microsoft Surface RT would be nice...

  • Hi Glyn,
    Thanks for the feedback. An app for RT is on our roadmap. Stay tuned...

  • Hi ,

    We have decided on moving our SharePoint environment to O365 and will be using Azure RMS/IRM to protect content . As part of this move we will have to install RMS Sharing app to our desktops so they can protect non native IRM capable files such as JPG,VSD,MPP etc . Is there a way to deploy the RMS sharing app using answer files so we can include the admin account within it. We are at a critical juncture at this point and wuld appreciate any help so we can deploy the product quickly.

    thanks,

    karthik

  • Hi Karthik,

    We do offer the ability to install the application silently via the admin account or system account. Please see here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn339003(v=ws.10).aspx

    If you still have questions, please email AskIPTeam@microsoft.com

    Thanks,
    Gagan
