How to check if an external user has accepted the invitation

From time to time, I receive calls from my customers saying that they send invitations from SPO to external users, but they claim that they did not receive nothing. This post will try to clarify the process, and how is it possible to check the user invitation status.

As you know, every invitation made into O365 (Teams, O365 Groups, SPO…) relies in Azure Active Directory, so our source of information will be there. So what are the steps that we need to follow?

The important thing here, is the source field. If the source field shows invited user, it means the user has not accepted the invitation. If that is the case, than you can click on resend invitation and this will trigger another invite for the user to redeem

Once the user has redeemed the external user invite, you can check the source field, because depending on the Identity Source, the field will be updated regsarding the IS.

In this case, the user has been invited to a Microsoft Account (@outlook, @hotmail)

In this other case, the user has been invited from an Organization Account (note that the source is External Azure Active Directory)

That’s all!

 

AzureAD admin is in the new Azure Portal!

Hi there!

Yes, you’re reading well, MS have launch the preview of AzureAD in the new Azure Portal. As you know, when you need to configure something of AzureAD in the new portal, automatically redirects to manage.windowsazure.com.

It was very confusing and it was simply stupid, but from today we can enjoy the new AzurePortal:

I hope that MS will be improving the user experience of this new feature, but for this time this are great news 🙂

If you want to hear more info about this, you can visit the following Technet Blog

Cheers!

 

Update DirSync to AAD: Part 3

Once you have installed your new AAD, it will start a synchronization, but a really cool feature that Microsoft guys have added is when you install AAD, it creates an scheduled task in the local machine, so if you need to change the sync interval o need to run manually the synchronization is it possible!

The only thing that you will need to do is to access to scheduled tasks and modify the programability of the task to adjust the frequency. Once that is done, is enough!

Hope that helps!
