Blue AD Toolkit

From Monday 07 October 2019, a Toolkit giving local administration access will be available to institutions included in the Blue AD. This allows local administrators to create groups and to manage email.

Who can use the Blue AD Toolkit?

We have created new Lookup groups for each institution called Toolkit Management Group and populated them with the members of your existing Editors group. 

These new groups are self-managing, so you can add/remove your own members.

What can we do with it?

Your Toolkit Management Group members have full administrative access to the all the Toolkit's functionality, allowing them to:

  1. Manage your institutional Blue AD groups, via the Groups tab
  2. Create distribution lists with email addresses
  3. Create shared mailboxes in Exchange Online.
