New Office 365 Admin Center Review
Microsoft have graciously given our tenant access to a sneak peek of the new Office 365 Admin Center and we thought we’d show you around.
You’ll know when your tenant has been given access as you’ll be offered the option to “get a sneak peek” of the new Admin center.
To get access to these features, you can click on the “Hamburger Menu” button at the top left of the screen.
Managing users has also been given a facelift, although I am not sure what the purpose is of the colored circles with the initials of the user’s name. At the time of writing the search box also didn’t seem to work properly, but we have provided this feedback to Microsoft and they will no doubt get it fixed up pretty quickly.
Clicking on a User will bring up a nicely formatted page with quick access to some key Admin functions.
Unfortunately the new interface doesn’t at all scale responsively for smaller screen resolutions and mobile devices. I guess Microsoft are hoping people will revert to their mobile Administration apps whilst on the go.
Whilst the whole interface seems half baked in its current form, it does show a lot of potential and we’re excited to see where it goes next!
For great Office 365 administration please learn more about our Office 365 management software.
