Who is the program for?

The application is aimed at administrators of Office 365 tenants in organizations that have many mailboxes and store them in the cloud or in a hybrid environment. Provided that you have global admin rights, you can use the program to upload and manage photographs for any number of accounts collectively, instead of running the Set-UserPhoto cmdlet separately for each user.


How it works

CodeTwo User Photos for Office 365 is installed locally using the Microsoft's ClickOnce deployment method. Such a solution minimizes the software's load on your system and ensures that the program is always up to date. Read more about the installation and updating in this article.

When you upload a user photo via the application, the file is sent to the default photo repository (root folder) of the user's Exchange Online mailbox (see Fig. 1.). This is where the picture is rescaled and propagated to Exchange Online related applications (such as Outlook on the web, Lync or Skype for Business) and to SharePoint Online with associated services, e.g. OneDrive.
