Office 365 for HR Teams

Office 365 for HR Teams

July 8, 2019 in Microsoft 365/Office 365, Corporate IT Training / by Hannah Mulligan

Are you ready, HR? The O365 ball is in your court!

For years, IT has owned the deployment of Microsoft Office products. But as the Office 365 revolution grows, businesses must change the way they’re handling Microsoft Office adoption. Why? Because O365 is designed to be managed by business unit owners– not IT.

Office 365 is Microsoft’s fastest-growing commercial product ever. Your company’s goal with O365 is to create a fully digital, collaborative workplace – because that’s the value of O365.  But it takes more than just learning how to use Outlook in the Cloud.

Joshua Harrison

BIO

My name is Joshua Harrison. I served in the United States Army as a Field Artillery soldier. I deployed to Iraq in 2008 in Babil Province, which is south of Baghdad. Ever since I can remember, I have had a strong curiosity towards technology. When I was a child, my Father introduced me to the computer languages Visual Basic and HTML, and I was hooked! I have since explored technology further and I love to expand my knowledge of the “how’s” and “why’s” applications behave the way they do.

How to Configure Fine-Grained Password Policies in PowerShell

 

About a year ago, I held a seminar about Fine-Grained password policies. Several of my students asked me to document the important points in a blog. But they added a twist to the request. Instead of using GUI tools, they suggested it would be more helpful if I documented all of the steps in PowerShell. Never one to say no, I agreed. So to those students, this blog is for you!
