Using native tools and PowerShell scripting to access information about the groups present in an organization's Office 365 environment is a gruelling and tedious process. ADManager Plus offers a better and easier alternative to this error-prone approach with its pre-defined Office 365 Group Reports.
These reports provide a script-free approach to fetch critical information on all the groups present in your MS Office 365 environment. It also enables you to view details of the security and distribution groups, separately. Group details viz. object ID, display name, description, email address and last DirSync time are displayed in these reports.
ADManager Plus goes a step further by allowing you to export the extracted Office 365 group-specific information to PDF, CSV, XLSX or HTML, as desired.
Moreover, this tool also allows administrators to manage their Office 365 users and licenses from the same console.
ADManager Plus's Office 365 group reports provide the following information:
