Granting send as or full access permissions to multiple mailboxes at once in Office 365
The Office 365 Administration portal now allows you to perform many Administration tasks that were previously only possible using PowerShell. This is a great relief to organizations whose IT staff aren’t up to speed with PowerShell or do not have access to it.
One example of this is the ability to now apply to Send As, Send On Behalf and Full Access mailbox permissions to multiple users at once.
To get started, log in to the Office 365 Administration portal as an Administrator and navigate to the Mailbox section of Exchange Online.
You can then select the mailboxes you wish to apply the permissions to and click More Options in the Action Panel on the right-hand side. If you want to select a specific subset of mailboxes you can use the Advanced Search option.
To set the permissions, you’ll need to click on either Add or Remove under the Mailbox Delegation options.
This will pop up a window allowing you to set the permissions as required.
All you need to do now is apply the settings and the permissions will have been set for all your users!
So how do you know which permissions have been set? That’s easy when you learn more about our Office 365 reporting tool.
