Sharing and collaborating just got easier! Want a quick way to grab some co-workers and get productive on a project? Need to share documents on the fly without having to setup a SharePoint site?
With the introduction of Groups, working in Office 365 can bring people together to connect with colleagues and work on projects. You can search for and join existing Groups, which are open by default, to see all discussions, milestones and files and get up to speed quickly. You can create private Groups as well for sensitive projects and content. Each group gets their own OneDrive for file sharing and their own group email box.
Where can you find Groups?
Groups is a feature that is available in Outlook Web App email and calendar and OneDrive for Business, and will be rolled out to all customers that have an Exchange Online or Office 365 commercial subscription, both new and existing.
Group management is provided in Office 365. It is straightforward to create and manage, Groups can be optimized without learning to use a separate security management website. Public Groups support an open permission model, which allows you to add yourself as a member to any public Group, making it easy to access information. Private Groups provide data privacy while still allowing for prospective members to request access to the Group.
