  • Cool - maybe someday.
  • Nice looking app and nice idea!
  • Works great! Now I can proactively inform my customers in case of general issues. Very cool!
  • It would be great if they gave us a way to perform service administration like user management.
  • Agreed.  It would be awesome to be able to reset a user's password!
  • Hopefully a update or another O365 admin app will be released
  • Definitely.  It's nice to be able to quickly check the service status, but I'm left wanting a bit more.  I don't need full user management but yes, simple things like resetting use passwords would be so convenient!
  • Doesn't look like it has a life tile though... Getting possible issues shown on the live tile would be even more awesome. User management would be great, I agree. I would at least want to be able to lock a user account on the go in case a device gets lost or stolen. But since im getting the 1520, using the portal in that case should be ok
  • 364 is way better. If you can stay in the lines. I need help with that sometimes.
  • What's so good when many can't even connect to their office. http://windowsphone.uservoice.com/forums/101801-feature-suggestions/suggestions/2281269-add-eap-tls-authentication-support-for-wifi Fire the phone head.
  • stuck with a freaking IBM product with absolutly no mobile apps... UGGGGGGGGGGGGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • At $20 an install, Office 365 is an awesome deal. Get four friends and you're golden.
  • Wrong O365 you're talking about. This is for the business plans, namely plans E, M, P and K. The consumer version won't work with this app.
  • Will come in handy as we're migrating our school to O365 at the moment! I'll be able to keep an eye on things! It's silly, but I don't like the icon...
  • Downloading...will be using this big time. Hope more features come soon.
  • Will give it a try, thanks
  • Maybe someday. My business partners are Scroogle lovers. It's sad.
  • Not bad, just need to add some more features
  • Microsoft Announces Office 365 Message Encryption, Available In Q1 2014 http://blogs.office.com/b/office365tech/archive/2013/11/21/introducing-office-365-message-encryption-send-encrypted-emails-to-anyone.aspx
  • I have 15 customers that have used O365 since it was still BPOS. There have been 3 incidents during that time (& one had the portal offline so the app wouldn't have worked either). So, the chances that I would need Mobile access to this is very, very low. That I would need a live tile as someone suggested is a bit overkill. I would prefer a touch friendlier portal I could pull up on the Surface RT I use while onsite.
    Password resets would be a nice feature add though.
  • MS are utter eff-wits at integration. I had to install an app on Windows phone that allowed me to accept an invite viewed on Windows phone - which was sent to me via erm...Outlook! .ics should associate automatically
  • Plus new Ex-hell hangs often if you have other Ex-hell workbooks open & dare to open Ex-hell attachment in erm...Outlook! Office needs a lot more work MS, plus bring back right click add category to emails. F( &k Google limitations, work around them.
  • Pretty nice "at a glance" indicator of our clients' Office 365 service health. Now if only a Live Tile and Delegated Admin views for each client, plus user and license management. Let us change passwords, add & remove users and licenses, assign admin rights, etc. Nice start. Will use this every day.
