This course is for Office 365 Administrators who want to learn the basic daily management tasks.

As an Office 365 administrator you must know how to perform basic duties using the Admin portal. You will learn how to:

  • Adddelete users
  • Check the status of Office 365
  • Provide licenses to user
  • Understand the different Admin levels
  • Add licenses
  • Create Shared Mailboxes
  • Create Shared Calendars
  • Create Security Groups
  • Create Distribution Groups
  • many other basic functions

I have made this course is such a way that will allow you to start managing your Office 365 tenant without the need to take a $3,000.00 course to do so.Why should you take this course?Because you will be learning from an experienced Office 365 administrator who has been doing this for several years but someone who enjoys passing this knowledge to others.Also, by taking this course you will receive several updated through the year as Microsoft makes changes to the administrator portal.That is my commitment to you as a fellow student in my course.
