New Office 365 Features

7 Feb 2013 by emma.robinson

There is a lot of buzz at the moment surround the new Office 365, known as Wave 15. It brings a lot of new functionality to the product suite and to be honest we could write hundreds of blogs going over each one.
We thought we would let users know about some of the features we like most. We know these have been pain points for many users of the current Office 365 version and think that these improvements will be a welcome relief!

Create Office 365 Shared Mailboxes from the GUI

Finally, you can now create and manage Shared Mailboxes directly from the web administration panel.

Public Folders return to Office 365 Wave 15

Public Folders have made their triumphant return to Office 365 with the new version of Office 365. They behave almost the same way as Shared Mailboxes, but have some small differences in how they are managed. There’s no point re-inventing the wheel, so here we will link to a Microsoft TechNet blog post that explains these public folders much better than we ever could.

Mailbox and Group Permissions

You can now manage Full Access and Send As permissions directly from the Office 365 Wave 15 web interface.
