At Microsoft Ignite conference last September, we demoed an approach for a self-built Office 365 Groups Governance Toolkit. Since Microsoft 365 is an evergreen service and continues to evolve, today we have more group settings available and we extend our provisioning function to work with group naming policies as well. See here how this can be accomplished by including new Graph requests.

The Delve App allows to discover company and user data across Office 365. Unfortunately, while the app is very helpful, it can not be customized. Well, but we can easily add additional user information, such as personal data, a cost center, additional contact data or hyperlinks, etc. See how this works here.
Office 365 Groups retention policies are very helpful to reduce orphaned groups in an organization’s tenant. Kindly, the Office 365 system sends out notifications to inform the group owner(s) to renew a group – or that a group will be deleted. What, if you oversee such a notification? See here how to restore an Office 365 group – thanks soft delete!
When working with Office 365 and Exchange services, it can be helpful to work with groups instead of users, for example, for allowing a group to have full access to a shared mailbox. In this case, there are some things to consider. See the working result in this documentation.
RBAC was introduced in Exchange 2010 to allow precise permission management within the Exchange organization for administrators and users. With RBAC, you can configure and control in a very granular way the administrative tasks that administrators or users can perform. RBAC controls both the administrative tasks that can be performed and the extent to which users can now administer their own mailbox and distribution groups. Understand that, with RBAC, it doesn’t matter what Active Directory permissions you have when using Exchange management tools—everything is authorized and controlled via RBAC. You can define precisely which cmdlets and parameters a user can run or modify.
1st MVP Award for Dominik Hoefling in Office Servers and Services.
This article describes the workflow for the group provisioning process by using the Azure function from part two in combination with PowerApps, SharePoint Online and Flow to enable a good user experience. Technically, we already have the toolset with the ProvisionGroup function. Now let’s create the rest.
In part one, we saw how the Microsoft Graph API enables programmatic access to Office 365 groups. Now it’s time to let Azure Functions help us with the desired workflow.
Office 365 groups span over various Office 365 services and provide a great way for collaborating. By default, every user can create an Office 365 group. While self-service is a good thing and many businesses adopted into that direction, some companies still prefer the controlled approach. In real world environments, organizations usually want to restrict the group provisioning so that IT can control the wild growth of groups. This article series shows how to create an Office 365 group with an attached approval process with SharePoint Online, Flow and Azure functions. See how this works here!
A very simple use case let us give up our Distribution lists. This article discusses why and how we did it and delivers tips how to improve your experience with Office 365 groups.
