Switch SharePoint Online Lists between Classic and Modern Experience

It’s been coming for a while.

Change is inevitable.

SharePoint Modern UI is here.

And, we’ve begun updating libraries and lists.

Per this link, https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/Update-on-modern-list-tenant-opt-out-removal/td-p/469297, we changed the opt-out methods (from tenant-level to site-level).  One of the things that we noted is that you can use Enable-PnPFeature or Disable-PnPFeature to manage this. … [ Continue reading ]

Update to the Remove-ProxyAddresses Script

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 ]

Update to PwnCheck script

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.  They’re not currently in Office 365 (or even Active Directory), but the risk is the same:

Users tend to use the same passwords everywhere.… [ Continue reading ]

DLP for Bitcoin Addresses

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.  You can create a DLP rule in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center (or an Exchange Online transport rule) to try to combat this.… [ Continue reading ]

Creating a Teams “New Channel” notification

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 ]

WhoAmI for Office 365

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:

(Get-PSSession |?{$_.ComputerName -like “*outlook.com”})[0].RunSpace.ConnectionInfo.Credential.UserName

You can also use RunSpace.… [ Continue reading ]

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 ]

Generate a list of mailboxes whose litigation hold duration is less than a week away

While many people use Office 365 retention policies as part of their data governance strategy, there are many customers who either do not enforce retention or do so only for items under some sort of litigation hold.

In the olden days, when storage was at a premium, it was much more common to handle things this way. … [ Continue reading ]
