Update to SharePoint Online PowerShell module

Since the beginning of working with SharePoint Online with PowerShell you have had to download and install a stand alone MSI for access to the SharePoint Online cmdlets as I have detailed here:

Connecting PowerShell to SharePoint Online

Well no more! Yeah! Now you can install the module directly from PowerShell using the command:

Install-Module -Name Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell

Whee you run this command you should see the modules being installed like so:


and then you should be good to go.


This will make working with SharePoint Online via PowerShell so much easier!

The current version is 16.0.8212.0 and can be found here:
