O365GroupSync beta release

O365GroupSync is a tool that I am building for a large global NGO, because AADConnect creates Read-Only objects in Office 365.test

Read-Only objects cannot be edited in Office 365, thus users are unable to edit distribution lists in Office 365’s Outlook Web Accress (OWA) even if they are managers of said lists.

O365GroupSync was built to take over the synchronisation and initial seeding of all distribution lists, both ways, to allow users to edit distribution lists while in a hybrid Office 365 Exchange Online scenario, both on premises and in the cloud.

This beta version has been tested, but is not yet running in any production environments.
