Resource Guide: Office 365 Groups

An outline of various online resources for Office 365 Groups from Microsoft and across the global community. Refreshed regularly, so please provide links to additional content you would like to see included within the comments below.

What are Office 365 Groups?

Groups in Office 365 brings together features of People, Conversations, and Content across an organisation’s users of Office 365. By providing an integrated experience that links together email conversations, file storage, and calendar event management, Groups create an integrated experience for teams to focus on group activity. Groups can be public to enable information sharing across a whole organisation, or private for teams that require restricted access. (Univ. of St. Andrews)

Office 365 Groups are the fabric connecting Office 365 products – allowing businesses to use the right tools, with the right people, in the right place.
