Microsoft Launches Preview PowerShell Module for Graph

Microsoft has made a preview PowerShell module for the Graph available for developers to play with.

To see how things worked in practice,, I convert a script to report Teams channels that are email-enabled to use the Graph module. Things worked out pretty well, but as you'd expect, some rough edges exist that need to be smoothed.

Version 2 of the module is now generally available, which is good, but be careful because scripts need to be updated before you can use the new module.
