Microsoft’s PowerShell provides administrators the capability to automate routine tasks using a command-line shell that’s associated with a powerful scripting language. This command line utility is structured, intuitive, provides consistency, and is available across all Microsoft products, making it easier for an administrator to transition their PowerShell knowledge and experience from one product to another.

Managing Microsoft 365 using PowerShell is an efficient way for your M365 administrators to manage users, groups, and many other M365 components in bulk. As an example, using PowerShell, you can easily add hundreds of users, or modify properties on these users, or groups located in Microsoft 365. It is a tool that every administrator should have in their tool belt to streamline their management practices.
