Office 365 – You can manage if your users are allowed to connect to Office 365 Community

Microsoft has recently deployed a small update for the Office 365 Administration portal to allow customers to manage if their users can connect to Office 365 Community forum for posting question.

To manage this permission, connect to the Office 365 administration portal with a Global Administrator user account and define the Community parameter – located at the end of the page; default settings is ‘users are allowed to connect to Office 365 forums’.

After updating this settings, it may take up to 24 hours to be take into account.



  • administrator account are not impacted
  • it control only Office 365 user ID; meaning end-user can still register to Office 365 forums using another email account
