Microsoft 365 Groups Essentials (2021)

Office 365 Groups give you power and flexibility in group communication.

Course details

Microsoft 365’s powerful 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.

Microsoft 365 Groups is a powerful tool in coordinating and communicating with the team. Anyone can create their own Group or join an existing one. Inside they’ll find shared conversations, shared calendar, and shared Files.  Groups integrate with users’ existing email, calendars, and OneDrive, and with special Connectors. Any Microsoft 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 various apps
  • Sharing files
  • Coordinating meetings and sharing calendars
  • Leveraging Connectors to add information from outside sources
  • Managing and securing your Office 365 Group
