Learn how Office 365’s powerful new Groups feature helps your team talk, plan, and collaborate


Microsoft Office has no shortage of ways for groups to work together.  From spreadsheet sharing to social media tools like Yammer and Delve and collaboration platforms like SharePoint, Microsoft has plenty of tools to help people work as a team. One of the newest tools is also the most powerful: Office 365 Groups.


Groups is built into Microsoft Outlook, the Office 365 web interface and its own Groups mobile app. Anyone can create their own Group or join an existing one. Inside they’ll find shared conversations, shared calendar, and a shared Notebook.  Groups integrate with users’ existing email, calendars, and OneDrive, and with special Connectors.


Any Office 365 Group can integrate with other cloud platforms such as Twitter, Bing News, GitHub, and ZenDesk. Getting up to speed on all the power that Groups has to offer is critical to leveraging Groups properly within an organization.


Topics covered include:

  • Accessing Groups through Outlook and Outlook Web App
  • Using Scheduling Assistant to find meeting times for all Group members
  • Sharing files with the Group via web, email, and OneDrive
  • Accessing the Group Notebook from the web or OneNote
  • Leveraging Connectors to add information from outside sources
  • Managing and securing your Office 365 Group
  • Using the Groups mobile app to stay in touch


Office 365 Essentials from Bigger Brains is the first eLearning course to cover the new Groups feature. It’s also part of the Mastering Office 365 course.  For additional features related to Groups also check out Office 365 Planner Essentials from Bigger Brains.
