Contact Group – A group of contacts stored in a contact folder in a single mailbox and usable only by people with access to that mailbox folder. Ideal for contact groups that would […]
I have a massive Powershell script that performs end user service provisioning across a number of on-premises and Microsoft 365 services. Recently, I needed to add some code for setting security options for Sharepoint sites hosted on Sharepoint Online.
