PowerShell modules and resources for Office 365


While researching the creation of my three Office 365 Connection scripts, I never found a single page with a list of all the PowerShell modules with download links and references to the PowerShell cmdlets. Due to the lack of a single resource page with all that information, I have decided to create my own resource page with that information together in one location.

Note that I have even added test cmdlets that you can use to quickly check and confirm that you have connected successfully.

Please leave a comment to let me know of any changes so I can update this article.

After configuring your Office 365 admin workstation or server, follow my connection tutorials and download and use my Office 365 PowerShell Connection scripts to make your Office 365 administration a breeze.
