We are a tenant of around 100 users. Three of us are Global Admins and we each use separate admin accounts from our normal user accounts. We also do this for on-prem.

Here's a support.office.com article about the different roles and how to assign them that may be useful for reference:

I have just had it confirmed whilst on a call to support that this is the case, it is now limited to 1 service request at a time per admin!

Is it possible to recover a user and their mailbox past 30 days since deletion?  I have a user deleted permanently about 45 - 60 days ago and now we need their mailbox back.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Long live the DevOps model, aka "testing in production" :)

This is probably a serious noob question, but where can I set who is a user's manager?

I assume this is done in the admin portal so that it propagates to all the associated products (e.g Sharepoint, Flow, etc.).

 

Thanks in Advance
