If you work as an Office 365 IT administrator, then the official Office 365 Admin app from Microsoft should be on your quick list of apps for Windows Phone. The app lets you "manage your users including resetting their passwords. In addition, you can also read the latest messages from Message Center, the central location for Office 365 service communications and view any active service support requests."
Today, the Office 365 Admin app is getting bumped to version 2.0. The last time we mentioned the app was back in November 2013, so this update is a welcomed one. Did someone say makeover?
Office 365 Admin 2.0
- Dashboard view
- Manage users including password resets
- Read messages on Message Center
- Monitor active support requests
- Supports Windows Azure Directory Multi-Factor Authentication
- PIN code support
The app is still available for Windows Phone 8.0 devices, which we suppose is great for legacy, although it would have been nice to see it leverage new 8.1 abilities. Regardless, seeing this app get refreshed after so long is great for the Office365 story at Microsoft, which so far has proven to be a successful strategy.
Pick up the updated app and if you are an Office 365 IT admin let us know what you think!
Thanks, Aman B., for the tip!
