Microsoft 365 User Information Updates without Using PowerShell

Life can be really busy IT admins as they try to juggle a never-ending list of requests from the organization.  When you find a quicker and easier way to accomplish Microsoft 365 administration  tasks, you never want to go back.

Our customer had found that using sapio365 to create custom reports was a life saver and he wanted to find more ways to leverage the tool.

As an IT admin in a large insurance firm with over 4,000 users, Cristiano had a lot of reports that he was required to run on a regular basis and sapio365 saved him hours of time. He also realized that when he had to make manual updates to information in his environment, sapio365 was a powerful tool that made this task much quicker and safer.

Cristiano had been asked by Human Resources to create a report with email signature user information. His company had acquired a smaller insurance firm a few months ago and they wanted to make sure that all employees were using the proper email information in their email signatures. Cristiano quickly prepared the report, exported it to Excel and sent it to HR.

After reviewing the spreadsheet, HR found a lot of missing and incorrect information, so they updated the report with the correct information and sent it to Cristiano. He now needed to input the new and corrected information into his user data.

Within sapio365, Cristiano opens the file from HR and opens the list of users. He uses the view that he saved when he made his initial report so that all the fields he needs are there. All he needs do to update the user information is pick the fields that he wants to update and click, such as office and mobile phone numbers, title, department and more.

Cristiano will be able to see exactly what has been changed because it has been highlighted. He can check and compare to make sure everything is in order. When he is satisfied, he clicks the save button and just like that, it’s done.

Without sapio365, Cristiano would have had to write a complicated PowerShell script or try to find one online. Because PowerShell does not give you the ability to check before making bulk changes, the risk for errors is high. Cristiano made no errors, and the changes were done in minutes, saving him hours of work.
