Microsoft is hard at work to enhance its Cloud productivity offerings with new capabilities enabling administrators to easily reset passwords. In this regard, the Redmond software company is looking for early adopters to join a new Office 365 Beta for the upcoming Password Reset feature.
"If you are an Office 365 administrator at your company, you may be aware that the Office 365 support experience is limited if you forget your password. Currently you are required to find another Office 365 administrator in your organization or contact Microsoft support in order to reset your password," a member of the Office 365 team stated.
"Our engineering team has been working on a solution to enable self-service password
- Small: 1 to 25 seats
- Medium: 26 to 250 seats
- Large: More than 250 seats
The team said that "During the beta, organizations will be given access to a URL of the beta service, which will guide administrators through resetting their own passwords. We would immensely benefit from your feedback regarding ease of use as well as overall experiences (i.e. clarity of error messages etc). Prompt responses would be appreciated and allow us to make this feature available earlier."
