Office 365 is a group of software plus services subscriptions that provides productivity software and related services to its subscribers. Office 365 allows the use of Microsoft Office apps on Windows and OS X, provides storage space on Microsoft's cloud storage service OneDrive, and grants 60 Skype minutes per month. Office 365 includes e-mail and social networking services through hosted versions of Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server, SharePoint and Office Online, integration with Yammer, as well as access to the Office software. All of Office 365's components can be managed and configured through an online portal; users can be added manually, imported from a CSV file, or Office 365 can be set up for single sign-on with a local Active Directory using Active Directory Federation Services.

I just setup 2FA for Office 365 Exchange and outlook continues to work and does not ask for a 2FA, why?

I want to activate the archive feature on my Office 365 account. By default Office 365 will archive everything older than 2 years. I don't want this option, I want to archive manually. I have disable every rule I can think of, but when enabling the archive option, I still get the message Office 365 will auto archive after 2 years.

I have a requirement to develop a solution to enable the administrator to set edit permissions on Ms Word based on the user logged on.

The solution will be hosted by SharePoint 2013 using Office Co authoring. The document must be edited by many users at the same time and each user must only edit the section the admins have configured the user to edit.

Does anyone have any idea how to allow the administrator to set the permissions? Then dynamically disable/enable controls based on template name and user logon on MS Word 2016 using JavaScript API for Word.

The client does not want to use the option available out of the box to restrict edit using passwords because it is easy to crack the password.

I have looked at the link below but my problem is to disable/enable the controls dynamically without hard cording the controls or users.

A guy has a small business. He has 2 computers in the building. depending on where he is, he works from 1 or the other.  both are win 7.

On machine 1, he shares his data - word, excel, etc.   nothing more than that - so he can get to them from the other computer.

He has an office 365 business license so he has the office suite on each machine.

Machine 1 died yesterday - hard drive failed (funny!  It's exactly 4 years and 1 day old... it had a 3 year warranty from Dell. but funny how people joke about things dying right after the warranty. Maybe Dell thought he was getting a 4 year warranty?!

Anyway, we had a shadowprotect backup and he's backed up. But it was the weekend and he didn't have access to his data from machine 2 - the one that doesn't have the data stored on it.

He asked (I feel like a moron I didn't really consider this) if he had the data in the cloud, he could have kept working on machine 2.

Uh... Yeah.  And he's paying for office 365 business / he gets onedrive for business with that.. so there's no extra cost.

What are some pros / cons to moving the data to the cloud?

pro's
gets to the data even if machine 1 with the data stored on it previously is down


cons
data is in the cloud / more succeptible to someone getting it?
Is the data backed up?

Does onedrive for business keep a local copy? Do you have to install onedrive for business dowloaded app to get that? If so, he could continue to backup machine 1 and be backing up his …

Since the default policy tag will delete anything older than 2 years ...

I would like to know if any items (not in the recoverable items folder) exist that are older than 2 years old.

Other than Get-MailboxFolderStatistics (as this command is extremely slow), what is available?

Sorry. If someone is on a machine that doesn't have the office downloads from office 365 (word, excel, etc.) - they have older versions of office, like 2010 or 2013 on that machine.

Do they need to install the onedrive for business download to be able to get to onedrive files?

And if they are on a machine with the latest office desktop apps installed via office 365, then they don't need the onedrive for business download?

all that correct?

thanks!

You can download 'onedrive' for windows at:

https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-au/download/

Will that work for onedrive for business? Is there a different download for onedrive for business?

Do you get more features when you log into the onedrive download with an office 365 subscription email address?

I am unable to find a method in PowerShell to do this.  

Does anybody know how to report on the searches (not the holds - that I can do) within an eDiscovery case, within the new Security & Compliance Center?

Thank you.

We just moved to Office 365. Some users use Outlook 2016 Volume License. Some of them are getting the attached pop-up saying Connecting to Proxy Server For <domain name> . I researched it and it said to disable a setting in File - Options - Trust Center - Trust Center Settings - Privacy - Let Office Connect .... . That does not seem to fix the issues. Any other ideas how to disable this?

Need help with combining these script together if it can be done, any help is appreciated.

Also want to mention, this will be for use in a large environment, 20k or so, and I plan on having as a scheduled task.  Not sure if this is an efficient script or will be too intrusive.  Input is welcome.

The first script goes through all mailboxes in ExO, and if it's a member of a group "MobileUsers", it enables activesync and owafordevices, for everything else it disables these features.

Import-Module MSOnline
$mailboxes = Get-CASMailbox -resultSize unlimited
$asusers = Get-DistributionGroupMember -Identity 'MobileUsers'

$asguids = @()
foreach ($user in $asusers) {
    $asguids += $user.GUID
}

foreach ($mailbox in $mailboxes) {
    if ($asguids -contains $mailbox.GUID ) {           
        if ($mailbox.ActiveSyncEnabled -ne $true) {     
            $mailbox | Set-CASMailbox -ActiveSyncEnabled $true –OWAforDevicesEnabled $True
        }
    }
    else {
        if ($mailbox.ActiveSyncEnabled -ne $false) {   
            $mailbox | Set-CASMailbox -ActiveSyncEnabled $false –OWAforDevicesEnabled $false
        }
    }
}

Open in new window


The second script (which can be based off of the same "MobileUsers" group, I have to set an license SKU in ExO for intune.  The header from the input file is:   "UPN","usagelocation","SKU"#

$users = import-csv .\intune.csv -delimiter “,”
foreach ($user in $users)
{
$upn=$user.UPN
$usagelocation=$user.usagelocation
$SKU=$user.SKU
Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName $upn -UsageLocation $usagelocation
Set-MsolUserLicense -UserPrincipalName $upn -AddLicenses $SKU
}

I used the office 365 Hybrid migration and am about to start migrating mailboxes. DNS  MX records are still pointing to on-premise Exchange.

Once I start uploading mailboxes, new email will still be coming to on-premise exchange.

How do I handle new emails that have come to mailboxes that have already completed the migration?

We have a requirement we have a separate On-Premises forest 9acap.com where all User accounts exists and 9alpacap.com in office365 where all mailboxes exist. Kindly note 9alpacap is a new domain created in office365 currently the users are having two credentials one to login as a domain user on 9acap and another for accessing mailbox in office365 for 9alpha. We need to implement ADFS to provide single sign-on experience where users of 9acap should be able to access mailboxes of 9alpacap. How to achieve this and what steps will be required for the same.

Thanks

Hi All,

We're a care company with a standard file server with X amount of mapped drives per department (and a shared 'Z' drive).

We are wanting to migrate over to O365 and I've had conflicting advice on weather to move to Onedrive for Business or Sharepoint.

My first question would be which one would you guys recommend ? And are there any reasonably priced tools to assist.

The ultimate goal as our users are not technically minded would be the ability to re-map the network drives to the new Sharepoint / Onedrive for each of the 'drives' so the end users doesn't really notice too much difference.

I know there are companies out there who charge thousands to manage the process but having done the migration thus far from Exchange / AD to O365 I'd like to tackle this myself.

Many thanks,
Shaun Okeefe

Working on a script that creates an o365 user via powershell and it's breaking when I try to append or combine text inputs to make new variables.

The following is supposed to take the inputs from the textbox input '$o365UserFirst.text', '$o365UserLast.text' and merge them into a $displayname for use later, then take the textbox input '$o365useralias.text' and add the domain at the end for use later. Then finally it uses the text inputs to make a new mailbox, but it errors out with a "Cannot bind argument ot parameter 'MicrosoftOnlineServicesID' because it is null" error. For some reason the first bits appear to be creating empty variables. This obviously isn't the entire script, but just the broken part.


             $displayname = ($O365UserFirst.text + " " + $O365UserLast.text)
            $O365UserEmail = ($O365UserAlias.text + "@domain.com")


            New-Mailbox -Alias $O365UserAlias.Text -Name $O365UserAlias.Text -FirstName $O365UserFirst.Text -LastName $O365UserLast.Text -DisplayName $displayname -MicrosoftOnlineServicesID $0365UserEmail -Password (ConvertTo-SecureString -String $O365UserPassword -AsPlainText -Force)
           
            $Results.AppendText("`r`n")
            $Results.AppendText("User Mailbox Created... Continuing Script")

I am sorry because this issue is really bugging me.  I'm running Excel Office 365 on Windows 10 i7 7700 and the control +click does absolutely nothing.

Please don't take it as blunt I'm just stating a fact after 2 or 3 hours of looking for the answer.

The marque just keeps rolling around the selected cells.

Thanks for offering an answer albeit not the correct one.

We were recently targeted for phishing emails and found quite a few employees got compromised.

As part of the attack, the BOT created a new Inbox Rule called "Main" and "Main1" into users profiles. This rule is to forward any/all email to an external source, delete any auto-replies sent back after the phishing email triggered back out to other contacts etc.

The one common factor is the rules all seemed to be called "Main" or "Mail1".

Is there a way to delete all mailbox rules in the organization that are named "Main"?

C:\> Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | Remove-InboxRule -Identity "main"
The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for the command either because the command does not take pipeline input or the input and its properties do not match any of the parameters that take pipeline input.
