This is off the main help site but you can directly visit the Exchange Online help here.

 

Where can I find Exchange Online PowerShell help?:

This is also off of the main Office 365 help site.  It has excellent PowerShell cmdlet references for just Exchange Online and not Exchange 2010 cmdlets for on premises so you don’t get confused.

Visit Exchange Online cmdlet references here or in PowerShell you can use Get-command along with Get-help <command> |FL to get full cmdlet references
