Take a look at the onboarding wizard, including domains, products, and data migration and walk through key stages.
- [Instructor] Once you've subscribed to Microsoft 365 Business, you'll need to perform the setup to get your system up and running. Microsoft 365 Business provides an Onboarding Wizard in the Admin Center, which helps you through this process. The Wizard will guide you through the setup, and cover adding custom domains, adding users, migrating data, such as your existing mailboxes, configuring services, and enrolling your devices. The Onboarding Wizard will help you to add your custom domain name to the tenant.
You can add a domain that you already own, or purchase one during the process. The Onboarding Wizard will show you how to enter, and then how to verify, the custom domain name details so it can be brought over and managed by Microsoft 365. The Onboarding Wizard will then allow you to create users, and assign user licenses. When you create your users, this will provision a sign-in account and an email mailbox. The Wizard can also help onboard your new users.
You can send their login details automatically by email, or this can be downloaded, or printed. Once your users and email accounts are in place, the Onboarding Wizard can migrate existing mailbox content directly into Microsoft 365 Business. Existing data can be migrated from popular email services, including Gmail, Outlook, and Hotmail. Alternatively, you can upload individual PST files into Microsoft 365 Business. In order for your online services, such as Sharepoint Online, Exchange Online, and OneDrive for Business, to be automatically configured, the Onboarding Wizard will create the necessary DNS record that will be needed.
You can manually setup the DNS records with your domain hosting partner, or you can allow the Onboarding Wizard to automate this process for you. The last step of the Onboarding Wizard is to set up your devices that will be managed. This will allow you to configure settings that protect files on your devices, and control how users access corporate data and resources within Microsoft 365 Business.
