Scenario: You deployed users as <domain>.onmicrosoft.com but now you want to change to custom domain.
This video, created for Office365Training.com, illustrates what happens when you have deployed users with a domain such as the default onmicrosoft.com domain, and then add a custom domain. Some reconfiguration is required in this situation. Included are setting up a desktop, setting the user's default domain, and other best practices along the way. This is a good example of the kind of topics I'll be covering on Office365Training.com so let me know what you think.

Office 365 P1 (SMB Plan) - Features, Limits, and Capabilites

by Brett

The Office 365 For Small Business and Enterprise plan is a great value for small businesses. Considering there are at least 3 million small businesses with 5 employees or less, Microsoft can expect to gain a ton of users. Training will be available at Office365training.com (not affiliated with Microsoft) for end users and plan administrators.

This article details the difference between the E and P plans. Many of the differences are important and hard to identify. For many small businesses, the P1 plan is a great fit. For others, you may want to choose the E plans - this document will help you make an informed decision about which is best for you.

Microsoft can and does update the services regularly, so while I’ve checked and re-checked the details, the services and capabilities do change.
