In a rapid change of Office 365, Microsoft sends to Tenant Admin’s the news about what is changing and what is coming in Office 365.

 

This is the 173th email that Microsoft has sent to Tenant Admin’s Newsletter with Office 365 changes.

 

This Weekly digest is intended to reach the Administrators of Office 365 within the latest changes that are happening to Office 365.

 

Below is an example that can be applied to your tenant, because these emails are based on the services that you have in your Tenant and subscription.

       

 

 

Here is a summary of your messages from last week
