Until now, the Apple Enrollment section in the Microsoft Azure Portal hasn’t been available, but with the 1703 release of Microsoft Intune this feature is now available.So, if your tenant was created after January 2017 you should have this feature available today. If the option isn’t available (like my test tenant from 1702), simple navigate to the old Silverlight portal and follow the link. That should send you to the right place… But within the next few weeks or so the option should be fully available directly from the Azure Portal.This is a huge and very important step in the…

Today I got a call from a customer that was working on a Office 365 Project. As part of the Project they wanted to change the Exchange Email Address Policies to filter on the Company Name for each user. Only problem was that some of the users had a blank or misspelled Company name…Luckily, someone invented PowerShell so we started by pulling a list of all Company Names by running this command:Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties Company | Group Company | Select Name,CountThe result was as expected… Too many company names. Misspelled Company Names and users with no company name specified…
