Managing Microsoft 365 Groups & Group based licensing

***Apologies: some of the PowerShell visuals could be clearer in this video. I will work on this. Lots of references to relevant PowerShell techniques below, and if you have any questions please let me know and i'll be happy to help.

In this video we continue to follow the study guide for the new Microsoft MS-102 certification exam (currently in beta). So you can learn M365 and study for a new certification all at the same time!

Important note: This series is not a complete guide to the MS-102 exam guide. Links to further relevant reading are included with each video.

Here we talk about and demonstrate the process for creating and managing groups in your Microsoft 365 tenant. You will learn how to:

• Understand the group types in Microsoft 365
• Create & manage groups in the various portals & admin centers
• Delete and restore groups
• Use group based licensing from the Azure portal
• Use PowerShell with groups & also with guest user objects

When you have completed these steps, you will understand how to create and manage Microsoft 365 groups in the M365 Admin center, the Azure AD Portal, and the Microsoft Entra Admin center.
