In many organizations, Microsoft 365 is a significant investment. However, you get so much with Microsoft 365 E3 licenses that many organizations are unaware of, including beneficial features across Productivity, Compliance, Security, and Device management. Kat Greenan shares some of her secrets and the hidden gems that can be found in a Microsoft 365 E3 license.
Microsoft Ignite 2021 happens (virtually) on Nov 2-4. There are tons of sessions scheduled and in this post we consider some important Microsoft 365 topics that we hope are covered.
The Microsoft Graph SDK for PowerShell can be used for many purposes, among which is access to Azure AD account sign-in data. In this article, we explain how to use the SDK cmdlets to retrieve sign-in data for both tenant and guest accounts.
Migrating from file shares to OneDrive and SharePoint can seem like a daunting task, but with proper planning and communication, your project can be a resounding success for both the migration team and business users. The key is to concentrate on three core pillars: cleanup, organization and migration.
In this week's show, myself and Paul meet up at South Coast Summit - a one-day conference in the UK. For the second time in around a month Paul's over in the UK and in this show we walk and talk on a surprisingly sunny October morning, discussing some of the key things we've learnt from the conference, and the benefits of a large independent conference that covers more than just Microsoft 365.
After figuring out how to convert a script from using Azure AD licensing cmdlets (due to stop working in June 2022), we move on to create a licensing report for a tenant using cmdlets from the Microsoft Graph SDK for PowerShell.

Microsoft plans to remove the management of Exchange transport-rule based policies from the classc EAC in mid-2022.

With the pace of Office 365 adoption globally, many administrators will inevitably find themselves in a position where they need to manage more than one tenant simultaneously. When managing at scale, PowerShell allows authentication to multiple tenants using different PowerShell instances. Profiles and containers are a great way to operate across multiple tenants and accounts without going through cumbersome sign-out processes and closing browsers.
On the show this week, I'm joined by new Microsoft MVP and Practical 365 writer, Mike Weaver as co-host since Paul Robichaux is away this week, and of course Mike does a sterling job providing perspective on the week's news alongside myself. Later in the episode though, Paul dropped in for our chat with Microsoft's Greg Taylor - who is back on the technical side of Microsoft Exchange Online working on solving one of today's most important issues - getting rid of Basic Authentication.
