Office 365 Permissions

The Actual Service description covering these new permissions has not been released yet, but I think by looking at them, you should have a good idea on what they do. Once I see that the service description has been released, I will update this post.

If you currently have Office 365 and do not see this change yet, you will soon. It is currently being rolled out to all Office 365 tenants at this time.
