Matt's Partner Tip of the WeekPartners, WPC is just around the corner please make sure you stop by our booth, #1819, to meet with the team and get an update on all the new features of 365 Command. If you cannot make WPC here are the latest additions to 365 Command:

Assign Licenses to Existing Accounts

You can now assign licenses to existing accounts through the Office 365 Users screen by clicking the Licenses tab on the user.  The Office 365 Users screen itself has gone through some minor UI changes, which will allow 365 Command to accommodate more user actions in the future.

Change User Name – Update

This release gives Administrators the ability to change user names on federated user accounts.

Create New User Accounts in Office 365

The Create New User option allows for the creation of new user accounts, with a license, in Office 365.

Purge Deleted Users

The Purge Deleted Users area allows the user to permanently remove deleted objects from the Azure Active Directory recycle bin, before the normal 30 day expiration.

Modify Group Membership

You can now modify Group Membership of non Directory Synchronized groups directly through 365 Command, by clicking the Modify link on the Group Details table.

New Reports

We’ve added a few new reports, including:

  • Shared Mailbox Sizes – Shows the sizes of your shared and resource mailboxes
  • License Summary – A quick overview of how many licenses are in use and unassigned
  • Unused Services – Shows users which have a license such as plan E3, but have services within that license turned off, such as SharePoint
  • User Licenses – Shows the license type and what services are active on a user by user basis

One of the key features we have added is the ability to get insight into what licenses your end user is actually using. As you know with an E3 license your customer is able to get Share Point, Lync and many other Microsoft licenses. This is a great cross sell up sell opportunity  to sell more of Microsoft’s cloud offering.
