Sarah here.  Bob posted the Lync webinar on administering Office 365 with PowerShell. You can download the presentation here.  Since the video is a bit grainy, I wanted to cover some of the topics and screenshots here. These are some of the things that were covered.

Company & Subscription Information

Some of the things you can do with the company and subscription cmdlets include:

  • See company information – name, address, city, state, whether directory synchronization is enabled, and many other fields
  • Set technical and marketing contacts


Some of the things you can do with users include:

  • Assign Office 365 licenses to users
  • Change a user’s password
  • Restore deleted users from a recycle bin

Security Groups

Some of the things you can do with security groups include:

  • Create and remove groups
  • Assign members to groups

Administrator Roles

Some of the things you can do with administrator roles include:

  • Create and remove roles
  • Assign users to roles


This is just a small glimpse of administering the Office 365 core functionality.  I didn’t cover Lync Online, SharePoint Online, or Exchange Online in the webinar.  However, I will cover those in future PowerShell Tidbits posts!
