Hi All, 

 

I need some help! I have new users that I want to create BUT i want these users to have specific passwords (which are different for each email) that I have given. 

 

I want them to keep the password that I have set so that they don't need to change at first log in. 

 

Most likely this will need doing by powershell? I cant find a script to do this!

 

Thanks in advance!

Yup, simply use PowerShell. Via the good old Set-MsolUserPassword cmdlet, you can specify the -ForceChangePassword $false parameter to do this. Here's also a small script I published a while back to illustrate this: https://www.michev.info/Blog/Post/1419/force-password-change-for-all-users-in-office-365
