Today, I just put together a quick little project for a friend of mine who needed a way to scrape downloadable documents and video files from a website for a project. Rather than clicking and downloading each one manually, he wondered if there was a way he could do it with a script.… [ Continue reading ]
I couldn’t really come up with a cool-sounding title for this post, so I just went with the basics of what it does.
Last week, I worked with a customer that wanted to deploy custom retention labels to custom folders inside a user’s mailbox–the idea being that they would create a custom folder structure such as this under a user’s Inbox:

Based on some user feedback, I’ve made the following modifications to the OneDrive for Business Admin Tool:

- Added verbiage referencing the -Confirm parameter when using FolderToDelete parameter
- Tidied up code indentations to make it more readable
I’ve got some additional feedback that I will incorporate as well (once I figure out how to do it).… [ Continue reading ]
