Managing Microsoft 365 Group Members with Ease

Managing group members in Microsoft 365 can be difficult especially when there are a lot of users. It’s tough to see all the users at once in one global view.

As a result, making changes can be difficult but one customer found a way to manage his group members easily.

Carson works as an IT admin for a large and growing manufacturer that has been acquiring companies over the last year. He’s learned that he must make sure that all employees have the same email signature, one that has been approved by upper management and includes the correct corporate identity. He quickly made a list of all the users but then he is told that certain employees need to be able to customize their email signature, depending on the recipient. This is because some agreements still need to be finalized and a new corporate identity may risk completion of these important contracts.

How to copy Microsoft 365 members to another group without PowerShell 

Carson realizes that he would need to create a new group adding everyone in the company minus those individuals who need the flexibility of tailoring their email signature. He knows that this manual and painstaking task will take a lot of time and it will be easy to miss someone or make a mistake.

The IT team has recently been using sapio365 to manage their Microsoft 365 environment so Carson thinks this could be another great use case for sapio365. He uses sapio365 to get a global view of his environment with all the groups and then retrieve the members of those two groups, as well as any other information he may want to see.

With this information at hand, he can now duplicate the memberships of one group to another group in just a few clicks. Then he simply needs to select the users who need the flexibility of choosing their own signature and remove them from the group in one click.

The chance of manual errors is greatly reduced because with sapio365 Carson can see everything in a preview before he applies any changes. He will be able to compare the number of members in each group to confirm every user is where they should be. Carson saved hours of time without having to rely on experts to get this task done.
