Manage Microsoft Stream: Admin Capabilities
Ashish Chawla, Principal Program Manager, Tuesday, November 15, 2016
Today we are pleased to announce the eagerly anticipated update to Microsoft Stream which includes a rich set of IT admin capabilities for managing your company’s video content. Ever since we launched, we were aware that IT admins play a key role in an organization and this is our first step in realizing this capability.
These experiences are a direct result of the feedback you all have provided us as you use Microsoft Stream and that helped us guide our designs. In this release, we focus on the 4 core admin experiences –
- Assigning Stream Admins – Starting today global tenant admins will be able to delegate admins for Microsoft Stream to manage the day to day operations.
- Restricting Uploaders in Microsoft Stream – Stream Admins can now allow only specific users or security groups to upload content.
- Adding guidelines to Microsoft Stream and Employee Consent – Stream Admins can now also add guidelines to company policies and these will be visible throughout the portal. In addition, admins can also require employees to agree to the company policies before uploading content.
- Enabling Stream Admins to manage content – Finally, Stream Admins get controls over both organizational and custom content to edit/delete the video and or video metadata, by entering admin mode.
If you are a Stream Admin you can go to https://web.microsoftstream.com/admin and try out the core experiences.
If you are not a Stream Admin yet and you think you should be one, contact your Global Tenant Admin so they can make you one.
