New! Easily bulk upload and manage users’ photos in Office 365!

Many of you already know and use our freeware CodeTwo Active Directory Photos – a smart tool designed to ease user photo management in Active Directory. Since the cloud became more and more popular, we have heard questions about how an admin can simplify the process of uploading and managing users’ photos in Office 365. That is why we have decided to develop a smart application to address those needs. That being said, let us introduce CodeTwo User Photos for Office 365 – our new freeware application to bulk upload and manage users’ photos across Office 365 applications.

What it is

CodeTwo User Photos for Office 365 is a freeware tool that can bulk import users’ photos from files and automatically match them with corresponding users in Office 365. The program does not require any scripting. You don’t have to connect to Microsoft Graph and execute Set-MgUserPhotoContent (formerly Set-UserPhoto) cmdlet for each user. The trick is that the tool automates the whole process, saving you a lot of tedious work. It will take care of everything from resizing, through auto matching users with their photos, to ensuring their smooth upload to users’ mailboxes in Exchange Online. All that managed via a light and intuitive graphical user interface.

What it looks like

We have opted to keep the administration panel of CodeTwo User Photos for Office 365 as clean and intuitive as possible. The toolbar at the top gives you a quick access to all necessary functions like e.g. Import (to import user’s photos), Export (to export users’ photos to your computer), Edit (to adjust photos) or Remove (to delete a photo of your Office 365 user). The main section of the window displays your Office 365/Exchange groups and all users in those groups to help you easily access and manage all photos from one place.
