We just released another set of new features and updates to BetterCloud for Office 365, our newest product that’s currently in beta (try it free here). Here’s a summary of what’s new in this release:

  • New account settings and tenant settings pages
  • Customizations added to email settings
  • Mailbox forwarding alert
  • Users with changing administrator roles alert

What’s New: Alerts

Users with new administrator roles in Exchange – Since users can be assigned multiple roles in the Exchange admin center, this new alert will notify administrators about any changes to a user’s permissions within Exchange.

Mailboxes forwarding to other internal users – Receive an alert when a user creates a new email forwarding rule. Though email forwarding among internal accounts presents less of a data security risk than forwarding to external mailboxes (an existing alert), having insight into both provides a more complete picture of mail flow in Exchange.

What’s New: Features

All active alerts – A brand new page and the first in the Insights tab of the application. You can now view all active alerts for your tenant, filtering them by category, severity, or number.
