50005Enabling Modern Auth for Managed TenantsWe?re constantly improving the security of Office 365 products and services. Modern Authentication is one of the best ways of ensuring that your clients can take advantage of authentication features like multi-factor authentication (MFA) and third-party SAML identity providers. All new Office 365 tenants created on or after August 1, 2017 have Modern Authentication enabled by default in Exchange Online for all clients. We're making a change so that Modern Authentication will be enabled for the Windows Outlook client and Skype for Business client in all managed (non-federated) tenants that were created before to August 1, 2017. Those tenants already have Modern Authentication enabled for Outlook mobile, Outlook for Mac and Outlook on the Web, so there are no changes to any of those clients.We???re constantly improving the security of Office 365 products and services.

53698Office 365 license activation changesIn August, we will start rolling out changes to Office 365 licensing technology to make it more reliable and resilient. These changes will help simplify activation management and streamline the Office activation experience for users. Users will still sign-in to activate Office on their devices, and if single sign-on is enabled, Office will automatically pick up the credentials and activate Office. As part of your subscription, users can still install and activate Office 365 apps on up to five PCs or Macs, five tablets, and five smartphones. Previously, users who reached this limit were prompted to deactivate an existing install before activating Office on a new device. Going forward, Office will automatically sign the user out of the user?s least recently used device when the user exceeds the limit, eliminating unnecessary friction. In August, we?ll start slowly rolling out these changes to commercial customers on Monthly Channel.

54434Create users with templates in the Microsoft 365 admin centerWe are adding support for templates in user management in the Microsoft 365 admin center.

When you use the template to create a new user, they will automatically get the saved value for these settings. Example: I have a large group of engineers starting in Redmond. I know that they will all be users with no admin role, Microsoft 365 Business, be located in the United States, be Engineer 1, be in the engineering department, and be in the Redmond office. I can save all of these values to a ?Redmond engineer? template. When I go to create the users, I can use this template to prepopulate all these values. Templates will be rolling out slowly over starting in the beginning of September. We will be looking at expanding the scenarios and functionality for templates over the next few months.We are adding support for templates in user management in the Microsoft 365 admin center.
