Podcast 429 - Pro Gravity Stance

Shane makes a triumphant return and actually has some things to talk about. Todd and Shane start out talking about their recent travels and fun. They do have some good technical content around PowerApps, Edge, and Office 365, then they have some discussion about how they got to watch Game of Thrones (no spoilers) and some other fun new personal technology. After the show they stick around and talk about the actual GOT premier, there are spoilers, stop before that if you don't want the spoilers!

Podcast 428 - Poorly Made and Askew

Todd is flying solo this week and loving it. He talks about the fun he had in Europe at SEF and he waxes nostalgically about March 2019 being the 10th anniversary of the podcast. He wraps by talking about PowerShell, Teams, and a new, way to provision test sites to see what Office 365 can do.

Office 365 PowerShell Module Installs

One of the first things I do when I set up a new machine is install all of the PowerShell modules I need to manage Office 365. Since there are so many different modules, and they update so often, I put them all in this blog post so you (and I) have one place to go to to grab them I’ll. I’ll also keep the versions updated so you’ll know if you need to update them.

For each of the modules I have listed the official page if there is one, and a PowerShell command you can run to install it from the PowerShell Gallery.

To see which modules you have installed and which version they are run this:

Get-InstalledModule | select name, version

To suppress the warning you get when installing from the PowerShell Gallery, run this:

Set-PSRepository -Name PSGallery -InstallationPolicy Trusted

To update to latest version of a module use the Update-Module cmdlet.

Free Office 365 Groups Webinar with SysKit

When Microsoft introduced Office 365 Groups, (also known as “Unified Groups” and “What? more Groups??”) a few years ago there was much confusion. The name is confusing, as there are already about 16 different kinds of groups in the Windows and Office 365 world, and what they do is even more confusing, if that’s possible.

On April 16th I’ll be doing a free Webinar with the folks at SysKit where I’ll explain what Groups are, how best to use them, and I’ll even throw in some administrative goodies at no extra charge.

You can register here for the webinar. The webinar itself is free. If you want to heckle, that costs an extra $10. I hear it’s money well spent. Smile
