There’s been so much talk about hybrid enhancements and Microsoft Teams updates…but that’s only because so many of our customers are dealing with challenges around managing both cloud and on-premises users and managing Microsoft Teams lifecycles! This release, our Product Team is also making last month’s License Management Dashboard even better…along with a handful of smaller enhancements.

Here are the highlights of this month’s release:

Tracking License Management (and Savings!) Trends

We’ve improved on last month’s new Savings Opportunity Report with trends over time – so you can see how you're optimizing licenses on an ongoing basis, as well as older license allocation data.

More Consolidated Hybrid Management

We’re continuing to deliver on our goal to simplify how you manage your users wherever they are – whether cloud or on-premises.  This month, we’re consolidating management actions for your legacy on-prem Active Directory users into “Edit Sync User” including:

  • Group Membership, including Security Groups, Distribution Groups, Microsoft 365 Groups, and Microsoft Teams Groups

Microsoft Teams Lifecycle & Privacy Management

We’re improving the management of Microsoft Teams by integrating Archiving and Restoring Teams Groups into Workflow.  In addition, you can now designate Teams privacy settings when you create a new Team.  Finally, you can now include privacy settings information in reports.

Other Enhancements

We’re continually making a host of updates to better serve our customers, including:

  • Better reporting in the Task Inspector, so you can see when actions have been completed right away
  • Updating to use Microsoft Teams PowerShell version 4.2
  • Adding fields to the “Edit equipment mailbox” Management Action for Capacity and Maximum Duration in Minutes, enabling you to adjust these directly from CoreView
  • An on-demand Endpoint Manager import for a single device, allowing you to retrieve data immediately instead of waiting for the standard daily update
  • A new Quarantined Messages report which shows messages that have been quarantined by Exchange but allows you to limit who has permission to release messages.

Our team is already busy testing the next round of improvements; check back next month for more exciting updates!
