Managing User Profiles in Microsoft SharePoint Online for Office 365

Summary

In this chapter, I introduced the management of user profiles and discussed the usefulness of these profiles for finding experience and expertise within your organization. We looked at how to create new user profiles and why you might want to create user subtypes to make unique profiles or different profile types in your environment. We discussed organization profiles and how to set up My Sites.

  • I have not delved into the client side of My Sites; instead, I have focused on the server administration aspects of getting My Sites going in your deployment.
  • In the next chapter, we’ll consider Business Connectivity Services and how they can help your Office 365 deployment aggregate data to increase collaboration and productivity.
