Welcome to Sele Training. I am Jason Sele and this is an introduction to the office 365 admin Center or admin console,it is the tool that you use to manage all of your users for office 365 in an enterprise environment. Generally, to get this solution, you need to have an enterprise agreement with Microsoft which is a minimum of 250 users, that is moving to 500 users minimum in the future.
But at least for the next two or three years, you can still renew and extend that for your three-year enterprise agreement period. When you purchase an enterprise agreement with Microsoft, they will give you this console, they will allow you to add licenses and assign those licenses to all of your users, it’s a great way of managing if you’ve ever dealt with the Microsoft licensing in the past.
You can try to manage all those individual users and purchase different components and install them. You can assign all those licenses to the individual users in Office 365 Admin Center, they can log into the portal, everybody gets used to logging into the portal. They can click the install button to install up to five licenses for each of the individual users.
The nice thing about that is that lets them install licenses at home, at work, at mobile devices, you can remote any of those five different uses under that single license that you purchase for your users.
The admin console is a great way of managing all that as an IT admin, it saves you a lot of time, it gives you information into the licenses, even if you still have to go through a third party vendor and make the purchase, they have added those licenses into the console here so that you can go ahead and add them and assign them as needed.
On this Admin Center, you’ll see a menu that shows all the different components and how you can manage your environment. Home shows you a dashboard, you can take a look at the different components in a snapshot. Users is where you can manage all of your individual users in your organization and you can assign licenses for the different components.
Groups is where you can manage the security groups or distribution groups that you’re used to doing in exchange if you use that environment the past. Resources is where you can set up rooms or equipment. Billing shows you all your subscriptions, it will let you add additional licenses or view how many licenses you have remaining and available, you can make decisions about what you need to add and when you add them.
Support gives you the ability to get direct support from Microsoft techs by submitting a support incident from the console, you can see your tickets in progress, I found it in our licensing environment, we typically get a call back within the hour or maybe two hours at most, they’ll work it until it gets resolved.
It’s all included with your enterprise agreement. Settings lets you set up security privacy, directory sync information and your domain, it’s the general office 365 configuration area. Setup is also where you can manage some products, view and edit your domains, this data migration lets you move bulk data to and from Microsoft.
If you’re trying to transfer a whole bunch of onedrive files or load a bunch of PST files for users, you can ship data to them and load it in that way. Reports gives you the ability to view statistics on the use of your office environment for things such as Skype, your email activity, instant messaging and Yammer.
Health gives you an idea of whether Microsoft has any issues in the cloud services for office 365. When there are problems with SharePoint or Skype for Business, you can find them.
The admin Center gives you a separate link with a separate tab opening up for each one of these components, it allows you to access things specific to Exchange, Skype for Business, SharePoint. I’m going to show you some of the options that you have in each one of these in future.
