Do you need to manage Microsoft Office 365 mailboxes in the cloud? Need to do more than the Office 365 portal allows you to do? You heard of PowerShell but don't know where to start? This is the course for you.
I once was where you are right now. I learned PowerShell for Exchange On-line and my life has been a lot better because of it.
In this course I will give you a quick introduction to PowerShell but will not go too deep into it.
Will give you tips to manage user's mailboxes.
We will use PowerShell to:
Come join me and lets have fun using PowerShell for Exchange On-line in Office 365.
Situation: How can we properly login to PowerShell for Exchange OnLine.
Note: Resources are included for download and use as you need.
This is the proper way to disconnect or close your remote PowerShell session.
The PowerShell transcript file is a useful file that contains everything that got displayed on your screen during the PowerShell session.
Let's look at how PowerShell uses attributes and where do we find them and use them.
Situation: As standard practice in the company every user that leaves the company will have their mailbox kept disabled for 30 days. Also, an Out of Office mailbox reply must be set so when someone sends the user an email they can be informed that the user is no longer with the company and direct them to someone else for assistance. With PowerShell we can accomplish this very quickly.
NOTE: Resource files used are available to download and use in your environment. Feel free to change text as needed.
Situation: There is a Shared Mailbox and other users need to have different type of access permissions to that mailbox folder. PowerShell can do so very quick.
Situation: Need to give permissions to a mailbox calendar to another user. It could be a Shared Calendar or another user's calendar. Normally a Supervisor might want to give others access to his calendar.
Situation: You need to give a user "full permission" access to a another mailbox. It could be a Shared Mailbox or another user's mailbox
Note: PowerShell can do so with 2 very interesting options.
Situation: Someone might request a list of all the members in a Distribution Group in Exchange OnLine. The list might be composed of more than a handful of members.
Note: PowerShell can export the members of the Distribution Group into a list
Situation: Dynamic Distribution Group members cannot be easily be seen so PowerShell can assist us with that.
Note: We will use PowerShell to filter and display the results in a file format that we could use.
To be proactive you want to see how large the user's mailboxes are before users start to call because their mailboxes are getting full.
To view if the mailbox has an auto forward rule type
Situation: Need to find users that are or aren't licensed for Office 365.
Note: For that information PowerShell will need to connect to Azure AD.
Situation: You want to view a list of users and their properties on the screen and be able to sort them out by the fields displayed.
Solution: Use the PowerShell 'Grid View' output option.
I am an IT professional who started its career as a computer programmer on IBM Mainframes. My programming experience involved Cobol and some variation of the Cobol language used in the military. As time went by the Microcomputers came along and I was fascinated by them because they were affordable to people. It allowed me to to experiment by building micro computers, installing and configuring software, upgrading hardware, software and teaching users how to use the computer applications.
I've taken courses all the way from programming to hardware and then to networking. But nothing is more challenging and rewarding than working hands on. You gain experience, knowledge, develop patience, troubleshooting techniques, workflow and networking with other professionals.
After some amount of time I became a Network system administrator on different Networks until i became a Windows NT network admin. I have worked with Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, SQL and other Windows networking products. I worked on networks of over 5,000 users spread all across the US. The smallest network I worked on had about 1,800 users.
Eventually I was given the task to migrate our company's Microsoft Exchange users to Microsoft Office 365 in the Cloud. That project allowed me to work side by side with Microsoft Field Engineers and set up Office 365 for our company. We started from the ground without any experience on Office 365.
I gained a great deal of appreciation for the Office 365 cloud and the applications and technology advances that the cloud provides.
Once smartphones and tablets became widely used at the workplace I began working with several Mobile Device Management products in order to secure the data on the devices and at the same time protect our internal network from being compromised. Office 365 provided the functionality to integrate mobile devices with Office 365 and continues to provide applications for those devices therefore making Office 365 as the cloud of choice for the mobile workforce.
As part of the experience I gained by those that taught me I feel the need to teach others and make it available for the masses and Udemy is the best vehicle for that. With Udemy there are no barriers between what can be taught and to whom. We can reach everyone on any country or language and teach, what we had the blessing of learning in our life.
