We have Comcast Business managed Office 365 Business Essentials.
I need to create a new user (because, you know, new employee), so that I can assign that person to the Office 365 App.
When, through Comcast's interface, I create a user, it asks me for an email address so that the user can be sent an invitation. Except they don't have a company email address yet, because they are a new user (previously, this interface allowed me to create the user and assign the email address), and so the email goes nowhere. I can't create the user through the Office 365 interface, because the system is managed through Comcast.
So how do I now create a new user? FYI: I tried creating the user using a private email address (which worked), hoping that I could then change the user's email address to a company one (no such luck).
ajraven, thanks for reaching out about your new user account creation for Office 365. I'll assume you've already attempted the steps here:
Have you reached out to the Office 365 team about this issue?
Hi Ken. Thanks for getting back to me, and sorry for the delay in replying - things have been a bit crazy.
My problem is that since we get our Office 365 subscription through Comcast, I don't have any control over users in O365 except for changing passwords.
Options for Adding users assigning licenses are not available. I used to do all of that through the Comcast interface. See attached screenshots. I'll try the O365 folks as well.
Hi ajraven and thanks for reaching back out.
I would recommend speaking with our cloud solutions team to look into assigning licenses and user management.
