4ward365 uses a read-only account in order to import and aggregate data. This account is created during signup process where you are asked to enter administrative credentials. 4ward365 will use them to run a set of Powershell scripts to create Readonly user and assign the minimum required level of access. On the first run you will receive an email when Admin user is ready and another email as soon as first import of data it’s completed. Total duration depends on the total number of seats and can vary from few minutes up to 2 hours.
4ward365 will import data at least once a day. The process is always updated and we aim to have an hourly import very soon with a “Refresh on request” feature.
During the sign-up process, you must supply the Office 365 administrator login, in order to allow the creation of the 4ward365 service accounts within your tenant.
Note: These administrator credentials entered are never stored in 4ward systems.
4ward365 system users do not require Office 365  licensing and are used only during import procedure. They are members of a 4ward365 group with view only permissions on tenant and cannot be used to perform changes in the system.
Senior IT Pro staff can access data in case of support request coming from customer in order to help them to solve problems.
