Title: Getting Started with Office 365

Synopsis: So your business is getting rid of its old e-mail provider and has asked you to investigate this Office 365 thing and you’ve been tasked to setup a tenant and get it operational quick. No worries mate, we’ve got you covered. In this session we’ll run through the basics of Office 365, what it means to you from a licensing perspective, for an end user perspective, from a service description perspective and most importantly how to provision a tenant, setup user accounts and setup your DNS entries so that you can start collaborating.

We’ll finish this session up with planning for considerations for more advanced topics around directory synchronization and federation.

    Information was excellent, but venue poor. Open area subjected to poor acoustics.

    This sounds like another great topic / event - sorry that I won't be able to attend.
    I've recently begun using Office 365, and am really impressed with overall ease of use and functionality!

    Shall we web cast this event?

      Has anyone decided about this event being webcast or is this only local?

      1 · October 11, 2013

      Webcast will be difficult to do especially since this is our first time in this location and managing external noise levels might make it hard to hear recordings. We are working to record the event though and have it available right after the meeting.
