Configure Office 365 Permissions Using Exchange Admin Center
With Exchange Admin Center, the interface is much more limited:
- You need to click on the Edit buttons to see the permissions assigned.
- You’re unable to configure save-to-sent-items, and you’re unable to configure Outlook auto-mapping.
- In addition, you’re unable to configure calendar permissions.
To configure save-to-sent-items, Outlook auto-mapping, and calendar permissions, you’ll have to run complex PowerShell scripts.
