Office 365 Groups for Admins - simple reporting using PowerShell

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
In this post, in the Office 365 Groups for Admins series, I will leverage what we learned in the previous posts, combine it with some PowerShell magic and create some basic reports. You can use these reports as a base for your Office 365 Groups reporting in your organization. Note: all these reports require that you have connected to your Exchange Online tenant with appropriate permissions, see this post about more details. List all Groups The most simple and most obvious report is of course to use the Get-UnifiedGroup cmdlet. That one gives you the basic details such
as group names, creation dates etc:Get-UnifiedGroup | Format-Table Alias, PrimarySmtpAddress, WhenCreated, WhenChanged Show some more details Most often you need more details, specifically with the member details. Here's how you can combine the Get-UnifiedGroup cmdlet with the Get-UnifiedGroupLinks cmdlet to show how many members and owners each group have:Get-UnifiedGroup | select Id,Alias, AccessType, Language,Notes, PrimarySmtpAddress, ` HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled, WhenCreated, WhenChanged, ` @{Expression={([array](Get-UnifiedGroupLinks -Identity $_.Id -LinkType Members)).Count }; ` Label='Members'}, ` @{Expression={([array](Get-UnifiedGroupLinks -Identity $_.Id -LinkType Owners)).Count }; ` Label='Owners'} | Format-Table...(Read whole news on source site)

Paying the rent online

This twit caught my attention: This is interesting, on several levels. Mostly because there isn’t any limitation here from the point of view of the bank. It is more an issue of how it always worked, and the implications of the payment method in question. Now, I’m not sure how renting works in California, but I do know how it typically work in Israel. So just to make sure that we are on the same page, let me explain a typical lease for an apartment. The lease contains a lot of legalese that probably matter
a lot, but from a financial point of view, the typical method used are checks. In particular, for each year you typically give the owner 16 signed checks. 12 checks – dated for each month, to the owner, for the rent each month. 1 security check – typically 2 – 3 months rent, to the owner, undated, marked as “security”. 3 checks – undated, blank amount, for the electricity and waters companies and to city hall. Assuming everything works out, only the rent checks are ever deposited. The others are held and returned to the renter at the end...(Read whole news on source site)

How can I use MVVM with Xamarin.Forms?

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Intro to MVVM The Model-View-ViewModel pattern provided a clean separation of concerns between the user interface controls and their logic. Several reasons you would want to implement it are: A clean separation between application logic and the UI will make an application easier to test, maintain, and evolve. Rich data binding and dependency properties provides the means to connect a UI to a View Model. It enables a developer-designer workflow. When the UI XAML is not tightly coupled to the code-behind, the designers can work without independently. It increases application testability. Moving the
UI logic to a separate class that can be instantiated independently of a UI technology makes unit testing much easier. It should be no surprise that users of Xamarin will want to use this in their next Xamarin.Forms projects. In this video, I’ll show you step-by-step how to use MVVM in a new Xamarin.Forms project. Wrap-up I hope this clears things up and don’t forget to leave comments in the YouTube comment section.
