When syncing to an Office 365 (O365) tenant, we strongly recommend you make your UnitySync User Login an O365 Administrator, particularly when initially setting up a new connection.

Without proper permissions, the most common errors you may encounter on discover or sync are:

Get-MailUser Get-Contact Set-Contact (et al) is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.

To resolve these errors, refer to UnitySync Office 365 login requirements for more information on Admin and Non Admin O365 User accounts for UnitySync.
