Once set up the console has the pertinent features to create backups and restore jobs without a million options to get confused by. Additionally the PowerShell module that comes with the program has great support and allows for more advanced functionality for those that need it.
Ultimately though setup is a breeze to get through.

Initial setup can be a bit involved, but once you have it going it mostly requires no interaction. Restores are simple and explorer-driven so finding teh item(s) you are looking forward is very simple.

Took less than an hour for one of our junior staffers with zero Veeam experience to get comfortable with using this.

Usability, was for us, quite simple. Having used Veeam products for years, that knowledge investment carried forward to the Backup for Office 265 product.

Sets up in minutes and requires very limited maintenance. Email notifications allow us to identify issues or that everything works as intended.

It is now 4th version of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 that we are using and over the last couple of month it was obvious to us that usability is something development team at Veeam Software puts a lot of focus at. All main functionalities are easily accessible and well thought through. More advanced features are well documented in manuals and online reference guides.

For usage in a general sense, I would rate it as high as a nine. However, due to the odd issues when setting up Exchange Online and OneDrive/Sharepoint, I would give it a seven. It seems that doing one or the other and having issues is easy to troubleshoot, however when setting them both up, and you have MFA set up with O365 as well, small issues can crop up that typically require a support call in the end to fix.

Easy to Use especially when you are used to the Veeam Backup and Recovery. The User Interface is very easy to use and has a wonderful layout. Everything is set up logically and is very straight forward in the overall layout. The User Interface is easy to navigate and return to your previous page you were working on.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is very easy to set up and use. It is far more difficult to troubleshoot issues. Logging does not provide proper information and most likely requires a support call.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is very much a "set it and forget it" product. Once you go through the initial configuration, you can set up reporting on the nightly backups and be notified of any issues. It doesn't vie for my attention and just does its job.

This solution is easy to implement, manage and use. We can restore data backups quickly and can search through mailboxes or SharePoint data to find exactly what needs to be restored.

Exploring backups of Exchange, Sharepoint, and OneDrive across point-in-time backups is extremely easy using the management tools provided. But the real advantage is in the included Powershell Modules, which allow for automation of a large number of tasks that might otherwise have to be manually executed in certain situations.

The set-up was a little bit tricky at first, having to deal with granular Office 365 permissions. However, once you get over the hurdle of dealing with Azure Active Directory and PowerShell permissions, the actual setup of the application was rather quick. Input a few passwords and you're off. There are few configuration settings ultimately for the backup itself though, as you can only pick certain "objects" to include or exclude. You don't get fine granular detail over retention policies, just blanket retention for the whole organization.

It's very easy to setup, setup storage repositories and connect to Office 365 and use. The user interface is also very easy to use and navigate. I only need to interact with the software to restore data or do updates to the system. Also, able to backup to the cloud if the need should arise in the future.

Very simple to use and the interface is familiar given we already use other VEEAM products.
