365 Address Lists
Trying to create address lists that are separate for staff and students, mostly so students can't see eachother in the GAL etc.
The documentation for this is utterly daft. There's bits about enabling routing, enabling policies, enabling roles which seems very OTT for such a basic task. I've managed to get the Address Book role added to the admin users but that's about it.
Trying to follow this : Create an Address Book Policy: Exchange Online Help yet all the commands therein do nothing at all. (Yes I am connected to the tenant via powershell etc etc) - so can't install this routing agent thing to even get started! This seems far, far too complicated. Zimbra was so easy.
Documentation for O365 is pretty garbage at the best of times. The amount of times I've actually got decent help with O365 from Microsoft must be approaching zero.
I used this guide Alumni Address Book Policy in Office 365 Education - UK Education Cloud Blog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs that was mentioned on a thread last year.
Did not have any problems with it. Just remember that the Offline Address Book can take up to 24 hours for new users to appear in it.
