Release of external365 - manage external users within Office 365
We are exited to announce the release of external365 brought to you by our partner Immersion Technology Services (ITS). The new tool simplifies the management of external user accounts in Office 365, making it easy to share content and resources with users granted access to a company’s SharePoint online site, but are not licensed within that organization.
"We created external365 at the request of a number of our customers that were looking for a better solution to share their data. The native process works fine for IT aware individuals, yet common users tended to get lost in the process of having to associate an account. This became very apparent with our customers using LMS365, our Learning Management System integrated with Office 365. Many had the need to add external users to their Office 365 instance to provide them with access to company training but found it to be a cumbersome and time-consuming process. We’re excited to streamline this process and not only expand our customers’ eLearning enterprise, but also extend external365 to all Office 365 clients to support their strategic growth."
Chris Ostler, CEO, Immersion Technology Services
