- The community aims to bring Microsoft 365 Mac users together.
- You can share your opinions, ideas, and suggestions with other users.
- However, the community doesn't substitute Microsoft Support.
Microsoft has quietly released the Microsoft Mac Admins platform, intended for professionals who are using Microsoft products on Apple devices. This community aims to bring together Mac admins working with Microsoft 365 or Intune Mac management.
The platform was launched on the 31st of May, and you can use it to connect with other users and share ideas, opinions, experiences, best practices, and tips on how to use Microsoft products for better management.
Microsoft products, including Outlook, which is free to use on Mac devices, and Office and Skype, are efficient working tools to have at your disposal. It’s only natural Microsoft would choose to build a special community for Mac users.
Mac management has been a focus for Microsoft 365 that is demonstrated in the macOS capabilities offered and we continue to see phenomenal growth and customer-interest in macOS management. So, we wanted to provide a platform where organizations, and specifically the IT community, can showcase their achievements, exchange tips and tricks, and collaborate with other Microsoft 365 or Intune administrators around the world.Microsoft
