Hi!

We, Sujata Computers Pvt Ltd are one of the leading Microsoft Gold Certified and Cloud Accelerator Partner. We are also one of the few Cloud Deployment Partner of Microsoft in India.
We believe in guiding our clients use Office365 effectively so that the productivity of users increases.

Today, we will walk you through Administration center of Office365 (the way it looks as on 13 Nov 2014). Hope it will help you in understanding the value Office365 can deliver to your organization.

Contact us - +91-7276000222 | paresh.lodha@sujataindia.com if you have queries and I would be happy to assist you without any cost.

Introduction

  • Office 365 - Admin Center

Office 365 - Admin Center

Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based service for businesses of varied sizes that helps them create SharePoint sites to share documents and other data, Exchange mails, Lync unified communication, etc. Instead of installing and deploying SharePoint Server 2013, Exchange Server 2013 and Lync 2013 on premises, organizations can sign to SharePoint Online to provide employees with collaboration and information management capabilities that work with familiar Office applications.

To administer, manage and monitor Office 365 with SharePoint Server 2013, Exchange Server 2013 and Lync 2013 for an organization, we need a one stop location administrator. Microsoft has provided us Admin Center for Office 365, where administrator can control SharePoint Server 2013, Exchange Server 2013, Lync 2013 and other relevant products of Office 365.

The Admin Center is the central location for all the corresponding components of Office 365, SharePoint, Lync and Exchange, etc. The Global administrator users of the Microsoft Online Services Portal will have permissions to manage service licenses, users and groups, domains, and subscribed services.

1-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd

 

The Admin Center page provides links for managing licenses and general system configuration. You can check on planned maintenance, enter a service request, and verify billing information. The first user created when the account was set up is configured as a Global administrator role. This gives them the ability to set up and manage additional user accounts as well as general account configuration. In the later part of the article, we will see how to create and add new roles and users.

Dashboard

The Global administrator users will be having the dashboard view of Microsoft Office 365 environment. The following screen capture will show the dashboard view and some of the key areas have been highlighted.

two-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd


Let’s see what the key areas highlighted in are with numbers in the screen capture.

  1. Navigation links to all key areas to manage and administer Office 365 environment.
  2. Service Overview will show service health, inactive email users and service requests.
  3. Based on the Service Overview option user can have the corresponding information.
  4. Shortcut URL to administrators for managing Office 365 environment.
  5. Admin link to specific service SharePoint, Exchange and Lync, etc.

Domain Setup

Office 365 also provides an Enterprise solution that is prepared towards larger and more grown organizations. This kind of organization will likely already have an on-premise solution and want to move to a cloud-based solution. Here in this section, we will setup the Office 365 for our organization.

Here, we will see how to connect to existing domain and active directory details will be synced and reused with Office 365. Here, the administrator will have two options to setup the domain and build the platform in the Office 365 cloud for the organization. The following are the two options for the domain setup.

  • Basic
  • Custom

In the following screen capture, you will visualize how the setup page will be for administrators.

3-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd


Basic: The basic setup option is mainly focused on for the organizations who wanted to create new users and mailboxes in the cloud, and can import the emails to cloud and make it up to run with minimal effort.

Custom: The custom setup option is for migrating on-premises messaging systems. Basically for large or complex IT environments to Synchronize directories, Deploy Active Directory Federation Services, single sign-on, set up hybrid messaging with Exchange Server, Support shared address book and messaging coexistence with an on-premises email system.

Here in this demonstration, we all see how to setup using the basic option. Now click on the basic setup button as referred in the following screen capture image to proceed further.

4-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd

Now you will be navigated to the next page with list of all the configuration activity listed out with navigation hyperlinked. The following is the screen capture for your reference.

5-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd

  • Add a domain.
  • Add users, assign licenses, and create mailboxes.
  • Help your users get set up.
  • Configure your domain for email delivery.
  • Import user data (Optional).
  • Lync Online and your SharePoint team site are ready to use.

Adding a domain is the first step. Only domain names that you own can be added to the domain list. If you don't own a domain name, you can purchase one from a domain registrar, and then return to add it to Office 365. Here in this demonstration, we’re adding a domain name called ‘agcindia’ to the domain list.

6-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd

Once after adding the domain name, the next step will be the domain verification page. One should be the owner of the domain, which is about to be added in the Office 365.

7-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd


Next is the verification process, to begin the verification process, we should add a specific record to the DNS records at your domain registrar. We then look for the record to verify ownership. Each DNS provider supports different features, so we provide two ways that you can verify ownership: by creating a TXT record or an MX record.

8-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd


Once after all the verification process is completed, the user will be navigated to the domain list page. Where you can manage multiple domains; edit, troubleshoot, and DNS settings, etc.

9-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd

Users and Groups

Users and groups help the global administrator to manage users profiles, security groups, bulk import users, etc. Let’s start exploring options available in the users and group section.

10-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd

Here in the above users and group section, you can see the users listed under the active users section. First let’s see how to add single user using add option '+' highlighted in the above screen capture.11-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd


Fill in the mandatory details as listed in the above screen capture, the additional details are optional to fill in to create user.

12-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd

For the same user, we can provide the administrator role based on our need. Just select the Yes option under the Assign Role and greyed ‘Select a Role’ drop down list will show you a list of different administrator roles available.13-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd


Next step will be assigning the license for the user under the Office 365; we can assign users to specific set of the products under the Office 365 environment. Here in the following screen capture, you can see for my account; I no longer have any more licenses to assign for the specific user. In this case, the user will be created in the Office 365 cloud with no products to access in the Microsoft Office 365.

15-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd

Now let’s see how the groups are created and managed in the Office 365. To create new security group, use the add option highlighted in the below screen capture.

16-office365-sujata-computers-pvt-ltd

 

When you click a report name, you will see a report graph. You can:

Filter the data: To see only the data you are interested in, use the drop-down filters above the graph, or the time-span indicators below the graph.

See related information: For some reports, there will be additional information in a table below the graph. In addition, related reports are linked to from the thumbnail-sized pictures to the right of the main graph.

Next year Microsoft is releasing its new operating system and its next Windows iteration will not be Windows 9 or Windows 8.2. Instead it has skipping straight to 10. A lot of people are making fun of this. People like order, and skipping numbers bothers the kindergartner in all of us.

According to me some plausible reasons for skipping directly to 10 might be:-

  1. Christening new windows OS as windows 9 will send the message that it is merely upgrade of windows 8.1 and there is nothing new in it
  2. In June 2015 Apple is going to launch IOS 9 and MS just to prove its superiority, jumped to number 10.
  3. The Japanese consider 9 to be an unlucky number because it sounds similar to the Japanese word for pain. What's Mr. T's prediction for Windows 9?

Anyways let’s see some salient features of windows 10.After using Windows 10 for almost a week, I’ve discovered some neat little changes and features that Microsoft hasn’t yet discussed — smart tweaks that, if you’re a mouse-and-keyboard user looking for a reason to upgrade from Windows 7/8.1, you will be very pleased with. Let’s dive straight in with my favorite secret/hidden features of Windows 10.

Explorer now has a “Home” tab

In the last few versions of Windows, opening My Computer or a new Explorer window would
show you your computer’s various storage locations and shortcuts to default folders like
Documents and My Pictures. In Windows 10, you now end up in a new view called Home, which
shows Favorites, Frequent Folders, and Recent Files.

You can finally put the Recycle Bin on the taskbar Rather than having to poke around Explorer or minimize everything and find the Recycle Bin icon on the Desktop, in Windows 10 you can now add the Recycle Bin to both the taskbar and the Start menu. Yes, that is the sound of many brains exploding as they catastrophically realize the enormity of this change

The Windows 10 Start menu is resizable

This one is a bit odd: You can make the Windows 10 Start menu as tall or as wide as you like. If
you want to have a Start menu that takes up the entire left side of your screen, or a narrow strip
across the taskbar, then that’s now possible. The taskbar itself is also resizable, which means you can do weird stuffs. I am not sure if this is second bit is intentional or not. A resizable Start menu is quite cool, though! Cortana is almost definitely coming to Windows 10

After a little bit of poking around (searching for “Cortana” in Explorer) I found a lot of references to Cortana in Windows 10 Technical Preview; there’s even aWindows.Cortana.dll, just sitting there in the System32 directory. You also get a bunch of Cortana-related hits if you search for “Cortana” within the Registry Editor.None of this is to say that Cortana is definitely coming to Windows 10 — there are lots of other reasons for those files/registry entries being there, such as the ghost of an early internal test — but I’d say it’s pretty likely. We should hopefully see Cortana in the next beta of Windows 10.

Notifications and toasts in Windows 10
While Windows 10′s rumored Notification Tray isn’t yet in the Technical Preview, there are some new pretty toasts/notifications that pop up in the top right corner of the screen. These notifications appear to replace the speech bubbles that used to pop out of the system tray (the bottom right corner of the taskbar, unless you’re one of those heathens who has moved the taskbar to a non-standard location).

The Command Prompt is getting so much more than just Ctrl-V
Somewhat unbelievably, despite the Windows 10 unveil event being only 40 minutes long, Microsoft actually dedicated a couple of minutes to Windows 10′s Command Prompt (cmd). At the time, Joe Belfiore told that Command Prompt is finally gaining the ability to paste with Ctrl-V (previously, you had to right click > paste). It turns out, there’s a lot more, too. If you right click Command Prompt’s title bar and head to Properties then Experimental, you get a bunch of new options (see above). In fact, you have to turn on the experimental options before you can use Ctrl-V to paste. With experimental options turned on, you can also use Shift-arrow keys to mark text (for copying and pasting with Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V). The other options are mostly self-explanatory, though I am still trying to discover what the “extended edit keys” are (let me know in the comments if you’ve found some!)

Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts for virtual desktops, improved snapping, task view
One of Windows 10′s bigger new features is virtual desktops — additional instances of the Desktop that you can use to better organize your workspace. There’s also improved snapping, and a new view called Task View that’s kind of like Alt-Tab, but it incorporates your virtual desktops as well. All of these new features have associated keyboard shortcuts to make using them a cinch.
Task View is opened up with Windows Key-Tab. It looks very like the new Alt-Tab interface, but it stays open after you let go of the keys. You can also add, remove, and manage virtual desktops from this interface.
Windows Key-Ctrl-Arrow (left or right) switches you to the next virtual desktop on the left or right.
Windows Key-Ctrl-D creates a new virtual desktop. Windows Key-Ctrl-F4 closes the current virtual desktop.
Windows Key-Up arrow and Windows Key-Down arrow can now be used to snap the current app to the top or bottom of the screen (this is in addition to Win-Left and Win-Right for snapping to the left and right of the screen). Tapping these shortcuts multiple times creates different effects: Tapping Win-Up once maximizes an app; twice snaps it to the top. Win-Down once snaps to the bottom; twice minimizes it. You can also use Win-Left/Right to move apps incrementally across a multi-monitor setup.

Hello!

Lot of Indian customers are using Microsoft licensed products but are not aware of what those products are fully capable of doing for them and for their businesses in terms of productivity. We at Sujata Computers Pvt Ltd feel sad when we see organizations investing lakhs and crores of rupees in Microsoft technologies but not making their optimum use.

Microsoft themselves sell support services called 'Software Assurance' i.e SA which can be bought along with any product license of Microsoft, of course at some additional 20-30% of the license cost.

Sujata-Computers-Pvt-Ltd-Software-assurance

Why You Should Consider Software Assurance (SA) For Your Organization?

There are below benefits of buying Software Assurance along with the product license -

  1. New software versions - You get product version upgrades at a free of cost when SA subscription is alive. For example, if you are using Windows 8 and Microsoft launches Windows 9, you can download and start using Windows 9 without paying a penny from your pocket.
  2. Planning services where you get onsite consulting services to create a deployment plan when you are getting ready to deploy new software. This service is available for desktop products (Office & Windows), SharePoint, Exchange and OCS. You can also use Business Planning services to help you get more efficiency out of your software solution.
  3. Training vouchers for technical, classroom training to help you keep your IT staff up to date. The number of vouchers that customer will get depends upon the number of license and the type of product license. Training vouchers can be redeemed with the help of Sujata Computers Pvt Ltd.
  4. E-Learning is online training to get your users trained on new software to prepare for a new software implementation, or to help them be more productive on current software.
  5. Home Use Program (HUP) provides a license of Office, at a minimal cost, to employees for their home computers allowing them to become more proficient with the software they use at work, when they are using it at home. Microsoft takes the support calls for the home use licenses so it can also help reduce the support calls going to your IT staff.
  6. 24x7 phone and web support to help you keep your IT infrastructure up and running. Customer gets number of support calls depending on number of license and type of product license bought. Each call is worth around $500.
  7. TechNet for Software Assurance subscription to provide a community of information for all of your IT issues and questions.
  8. Microsoft Office Multi Language Pack, which enables you to deploy a single image of Office with support for 37 languages.
  9. Licensing programs like OVL, Select Plus, EA allows you to step up the license edition so as to standardize your infrastructure. For example, you can use Office Professional Plus edition (highest edition available) over Office Standard if you have purchased SA along with Office Standard.
  10. You get an access to Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) which Sujata will help you deploy. MDOP is a set of technologies help manage PCs and make deployments across the network easy.

Do note that entitlement to above benefits will depend on the licensing program under which SA is to be purchased. Details of which licensing program gives what benefits given in below image.

We recommend our customers to take trainings, to take our help in implementation even if their own IT team is capable of doing things. Please contact us.Microsoft-SA-Benefits-Sujata-Computers-Pvt-Ltd

Visual Studio is a complete set of development tools for building ASP.NET Web applications, XML Web Services, desktop applications, and mobile applications. Visual Basic, Visual C#, and Visual C++ all use the same integrated development environment (IDE), which enables tool sharing and eases the creation of mixed-language solutions. In addition, these languages use the functionality of the .NET Framework, which provides access to key technologies that simplify the development of ASP Web applications and XML Web Services Application Migration, like fire fox to asp.net.

It is used to develop console and graphical user interface applications along with Windows Forms or WPF applications, web sites, web applications, and web services in both native code together with managed code for all platforms supported by Microsoft Windows, Windows Mobile, Windows CE, .NET Framework, .NET Compact Framework and Microsoft Silverlight.

Microsoft Visual Studio Available in four different flavours as mention below:-

  • VS Ultimate with MSDN    
  • VS Premium with MSDN
  • VS Professional with MSDN


VS Test Pro with MSDN
Microsoft Visual Studio Capabilities:-
What can you really do with Visual Studio? Following are some of the various applications that can be built using Visual Studio.

Console applications: These applications run from the command line and do not include a graphical interface, but are great for small tools or anything that will be run by another application.
Windows forms applications: These are Windows desktop applications written using the .NET framework; since they are .NET applications, they require that the .NET framework be on any computer that will run the application.
Windows services: Services are applications that run in the background while your computer is running. These are usually applications that will have to perform scheduled tasks or handle continuous network requests.
ASP.NET applications: ASP.NET is a powerful technology that is used to create dynamic web applications, often driven by a database. Many popular websites are written using ASP.NET, including those of e-commerce giants like Dell.

ASP.NET web services: ASP.NET provides a complete web services model that allows you to quickly and easily create web services.
Windows Mobile applications: Windows Mobile applications can run on devices that include the Compact framework; these include Pocket PC devices, as well as cell phones running the Microsoft Smartphone platform.
MFC/ATL/Win32 applications: You can also still create traditional MFC, ATL, or Win32 applications using C++. These applications do not need the .NET runtime to run, but also don't include many of the benefits of working with the .NET framework.
Visual Studio add-ins: That's right, you can use Visual Studio to write new functionality to be added into Visual Studio.
And more: Visual Studio also includes projects to deploy your application, work with databases, create reports, and more.

Visual Studio provides an extensible model for adding new projects to Visual Studio; many other Microsoft applications now integrate directly into the IDE. Some of the most common include SQL Server Reporting Services and Visual Studio Tools for Office.
Microsoft Visual Studio Features:-
All of the above applications could be written using another IDE or some combination of freely available SDKs and your favourite text editor, so why would you pay for Visual Studio? Visual Studio is dedicated to making your development life easier through time-saving and convenient features; here are some of the most compelling of those features.

IntelliSense: IntelliSense is the trademark feature of Visual Studio. IntelliSense simply helps you while programming by showing you the available classes and the methods and properties available on those classes. Can't remember what the name of that class, method, or property is? No worries, IntelliSense will help out.

Designers: Visual Studio includes visual WSYIWYG designers for Windows applications, ASP.NET applications, and Windows Mobile applications. These designers make it much easier to get your application looking just right.

Debugging: One of the most important features of Visual Studio is the ability to step through your application line by line as it is executing. Not sure why you are getting an error? Simply walk through and see exactly what is going wrong.

Organization: Visual Studio is built for developing applications, so it provides intuitive methods for organizing your various code files into projects and your various projects into solutions.

Visual Studio includes way too many features to be listed here; even most seasoned developers don't make use of all of the various features available in Visual Studio.
