Office 365 is a great tool and it’s easy to manage. However if you are already an admin user then there will always be times when you want to assign admin permissions to someone else so that they can make the changes. You’ll need admin permissions to edit attachment size limits, add new users, edit policies and much more.

Microsoft Office 365 is Microsofts online collaboration platform and provides a wealth of features such as Email, Cloud file management, as well as web versions of Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

You’ll need to know how to assign admin permissions to a user within your organisation which can be done in the Admin section.
