Adopting OneDrive for Business

Adopting OneDrive for Business
5 (100%) 1 vote[s]

OneDrive for Business is, from my perspective, one of the most under-utilized but benefit-rich parts of the Office 365 platform, allowing organizations (especially organizations that subscribe to the E3 or higher SKU) virtually unlimited storage, versioning, and recovery capability for their file-based storage.… [ Continue reading ]

Update to Get-UserHoldPolicies — Now includes DelayHoldApplied

Rate this post

This is just a quick update–if you’ve been using my Get-UserHoldPolicies script to check out the holds applied to your mailboxes, I’ve updated it to include the DelayHoldApplied property.

A Delay Hold is applied whenever a hold is removed from a mailbox (as in, the mailbox is excluded from an inherited policy or manually removed from an explicitly included policy), and stays in effect for 30 days. … [ Continue reading ]

It’s been coming for a while.

Change is inevitable.

SharePoint Modern UI is here.

Today, I pressed in a little bit on exploring CSOM–at least as it relates to the OneDrive for Business Admin tool.

One of my peers asked if there was a command that we could use to check to see if a site had been put on a retention hold. … [ Continue reading ]

Update to the Remove-ProxyAddresses Script

Rate this post

This update comes from a user–it’s a pretty simple one.

I posted the script Remove-ProxyAddresses back in 2017 after writing a blog post on the same topic.  In my script, I had covered Mailboxes, MailUsers, and Contacts.  I did not, however, include RemoteMailboxes, as my original thinking was “if you moved it there, you already got rid of the bad proxies.”

Which, didn’t turn out to be necessarily true (especially if you used my other way of removing proxy addresses via AAD Connect). … [ Continue reading ]

This afternoon, while working with a colleague, I was alerted to a customer that appears to have the same 6-character password set for every user, which honestly, I feel like violates the very notion of a password. … [ Continue reading ]

One of the up-and-coming combination phish-ransom attacks is to trick the mark into thinking that you’ve got access to their data, and then get them to send money to a Bitcoin address to protect them from data leakage. … [ Continue reading ]

This week, while working with one of my peers, a request came in to bulk convert all Office 365 groups to Microsoft Teams.  In the Teams UI, you’re only presented the choice to upgrade groups you own, one at a time, to Teams.… [ Continue reading ]

One of my customers recently asked for a solution to checking a particular Microsoft Team multiple times a day for new channel additions.  In their organization, someone is responsible for creating a new channel every time new item for review is published, and then all of the communications, files, and data related to that item is stored in that particular time.… [ Continue reading ]

I’ve been tinkering around a little with this, hoping to bring some better updates (so maybe you can see who is generating your data exports and go smack them around).

I’ve got a few updated fields added to the tool, so be sure to go check it out!… [ Continue reading ]

If you’ve ever struggled to find out who your current session is logged in as when you connected to Office 365, here’s a tidbit to shed some light on it:

Calculating your Daily Export for the Security & Compliance Center

Calculating your Daily Export for the Security & Compliance Center

One of the lesser-known boundaries of Office 365’s Security & Compliance Center is that we only allow 2TB per day export volume.  When we talk about exports, we’re talking about the idea of taking content that has been identified via a content search mechanism (content search, eDiscovery case search, etc) and then staged for download.… [ Continue reading ]
