the IT management division of Zoho Corporation, today announced that it
has added automation capabilities to its Office 365 administration
solution, O365 Manager Plus. Available immediately in the latest version
of O365 Manager Plus, the new capabilities help IT admins create
workflows to automate user and mailbox management tasks.
The Office 365 Admin Center currently does not offer built-in automation
features. Consequently, IT admins manually grapple with everyday user
and mailbox management tasks in Office 365. From resetting passwords of
locked users to removing licenses of temporary employees, admins must do
everything by hand, which is time consuming and error prone. To address
these needs, ManageEngine added automation capabilities to its O365
Manager Plus solution.
“With more than 135
million active users, Office 365’s user base is growing every
year along with the need to reduce the time spent on recurrent
management tasks,” says Parthiban Paramasivam, product manager at
ManageEngine. “Sensing this need based on an increasing number of
customer requests, we decided to equip O365 Manager Plus with the
capability to automate user and mailbox management so that IT admins can
spend their time on tasks that need immediate attention.”
O365 Manager Plus Automation in Action
Create custom automation policies: Event-driven automation
policies can be created in the form of condition-based flow charts
with the graphical interface.
Automate user provisioning: Just provide the user list and the
tool will create user accounts, assign licenses, enable mailboxes,
configure multi-factor authentication (MFA), add users to appropriate
groups and more, as configured by the IT admins.
Automate mailbox management: Automate mailbox management
tasks like configuring auto-replies, imposing mailbox size
restrictions, enabling mailbox auditing, etc.
Reports as a data source: Use the appropriate O365 Manager
Plus report as a data source for automated tasks instead of entering
the data manually. For example, to reset user account passwords using
O365 Manager Plus, the Password Expired Users report can be used as
the data source.

O365 Manager Plus is available at https://www.manageengine.com/office365-management-reporting/download.html.
Pricing starts at $345 for 100 users or mailboxes and $95 per
