Improve Microsoft 365 Management and Efficiency with New Datto SaaS Protection Features

By Erin Stephan

We are pleased to announce two new SaaS Protection features, now available for clients managing Microsoft 365 licenses.

The first is our new Seat Management experience for Microsoft 365 clients, which is available now for all SaaS Protection partners. This new interface allows you to better detect and distinguish between active and archived seats, providing you with more flexibility and the ability to efficiently manage large clients. You can easily see the current Status of each Seat—clicking “Status” reveals a list of possible actions to change that seat’s Status. The new Paused Backup feature prevents new backups from being taken while a seat is paused.

For more information, take a look at the video below to see these features in action.


The second addition to SaaS Protection is one of our most frequently requested features: PST Export for Microsoft Exchange Mail Items. You no longer need to procure a third-party converter to convert local MBOX copies of the data, making it much easier to upload back to the Microsoft 3635 environment in the same format. This new feature provides you with access and control of your Microsoft Exchange Mail backups and saves valuable time.
