This article will cover how to use management actions in CoreView. Management actions are common actions performed by administrators.
Management Actions Overview
CoreView management actions allow you to administer your Microsoft tenant in a supercharged form. Following this guide, you will learn what CoreView management actions are, how you can use them, and some tips and tricks to boost your productivity in managing users, groups, and much more.
CoreView allows you to perform management actions from different sections of the platform. You are able to run a management actions from:
- The Management actions list
- The user or group cards
- The reports
Performing actions from each of these sections has advantages and disadvantages. For example, when you are seeking to run a set of tasks on a single user or group it might be best to run all the actions from the user or group card. Conversely, when you need to identify a group of items running a complex query to run a single management action on, it’s better to do it straight from the report.
Note: The set of management actions that an operator can access may be impacted by the permissions assigned by a tenant administrator. If, as an operator, your access to any management actions has been restricted, you will only be able to see those actions for which you have permissions.
How Management Actions are Categorized
Understanding how CoreView management actions are categorized will help you find the action you need faster. The same categorization is applied in the ‘Management actions’ list and in the ‘Manage’ panel in in reports and in the user and group card.
