Setting up Your Office 365 Tenant Hi and welcome back. What we're going to be doing now is going over setting up your Office 365 tenant. So we're going to take a moment and actually talk about, just we always do, the components that we're going to go over. So we're going to go over the following components. Creating a trial Office 365 tenant, we're actually going to go in and make sure we get one set up, and of course we get 90 days to be able to utilize it, so that's three months worth of time for us to be able to get in there and be able to play a little bit and get familiar with it. From there, we're going to start creating some test users. We're going to be able to use these users afterwards to be able to make modifications to, to be able to try some of the things we learned. From there, we also have to license our test users, that's an important part. Just because we create them, doesn't mean they actually get a license associated to them. So I'll make sure we give them licenses as well. And then we'll head over and create our test groups. Now we do need some distribution groups and of course we need some security groups, and we'll make sure we get those set up as well. And last but not least, we're going to go over and admin center preview. Right now it's currently in preview, by the time you're watching this it may not be in preview anymore. It may be the new UI we're all using. So let's make sure we actually take a look at that admin center preview, just in case it changes on us enroute. Okay, so first things first, creating a trial Office 365 tenant, let's head over to there.
