Provisio365 is our Azure based Cloud platform with MIS integration to provision classes

Select what type of MIS provisioning you want


Provisio365 and MIS integration can with School Data Sync for Microsoft Teams but instead you could select just OneNote Class Notebooks, Office 365 Groups or both of these in one.

Customers have told us they want all their OneNote Class Notebooks created for them, without it hassling the teacher. We have done this in a few different ways including a central SharePoint site with a simple navigation to access your notebooks but also provisioning Office 365 Groups with the Class Notebook.

After you have selected the template we will run it nightly to ensure all Groups and Class Notebooks are kept up to data and if you have selected School Data Sync, we'll email you the CSV file to upload.

We are working on provisioning timetable information into other parts of Office 365 Education, so let us know what else you would like to see.

Exchange Online templates allows you to customise your email experience for staff and students.

Control how student emails work in the cloud


Learning and accessing the Exchange Control Panel to make a lot of these changes can be challenging and then configuring them correctly so only the right people can see them, makes it even more challenging when you have got to think about Global Address Lists, external contact sharing or PowerShell, so we have designed a set of templates to suit your requirements.

We are always seeking new idea of Exchange rules, as a valued customer of ours we are keen to ensure we can meet your need so tell us your requirement around monitoring of emails or other rules you would like in Provisio365 and we will get them added.

Office 365 Groups allow you to communicate and collaboration and Office 365 Video does too

Create, manage and use Office 365 better


Microsoft are always adding new features that use all the different elements of Office 365 and Azure ranging from Office 365 Groups for communication and collaboration, Microsoft Teams for chat, Video, Stream, Sway, the list continues but there are certain configuration settings that can help to ensure you get the best out of these.

When you start thinking about Global Address Lists, Academic year based Office 365 Groups and Video channels they need to configured to fit around each other so you can then see the current academic year. This is why when you create an Office 365 Group we add certain metadata around it so we can achieve work and make it easier for you the following year and make it user friendly.
