Why does my new customer's SharePoint Seat Management experience look different?
- Backupify 2.0 / Datto SaaS Protection for O365
Backupify 2.0 / Datto SaaS Protection is rolling out a brand new Seat Management experience for adding, licensing, and backing up SharePoint sites. The updated experience will be available for new customer accounts starting March 15, 2019. Existing customers will receive the update in an upcoming release.
Previously, operators would add SharePoint sites by using the Add Custom Site Collections and CSV Site Collection Upload features in the Users page, as shown in Figure 1.

For users on the new Seat Management 2.0 platform, we replaced these two features with a link to the new SharePoint Seat Management page, as shown in Figure 2.
