Office 365 - Administrative Functions

The following document explains the administrative functions available in Office 365. For information about the administrative functions available in WiscMail / WiscMail Plus, click here.

As an administrator, you will have the ability to administer accounts (if you have been granted to do so) within the Wisc Account Administration site. The table below contains a list of many administrative features/functions and how they are related to (and administered) Office 365. Some of the features/functions listed below will be available to users via Office 365 Outlook Web App and will not require administrative delegation.

Note: In some cases, a feature/function may need to be performed outside of Office 365 or the Wisc Account Administration site. In these situations, you may see a 'red minus' sign indicating a feature/function is not possible but the feature/function may simply be available in a location other than Office 365 and the Wisc Account Administration Site. In these cases, we will link to external references for more information.
