Sometimes you need one mailbox where your entire team can receive emails, one calendar where you can plan group projects, and a shared file repository where everyone in the group can upload and use common files – and all these features are the core of Microsoft 365 Groups (also called Office 365 Groups).   


In this Essentials mini-course Chip and Ben look at multiples uses for Groups, including how they can extend the benefits of Microsoft Teams.  



Topics covered include: 

  • Accessing Groups through Outlook on the Web, Outlook desktop, and mobile apps 
  • Sharing files in a Group 
  • Coordinating meetings and sharing calendars 
  • Leveraging Connectors to add information from outside sources 
  • Integrating Groups with Microsoft Teams 


Microsoft 365 Groups Essentials (2021) from Bigger Brains is part of the Mastering Office 365 course. 


For additional features related to Groups also check out Office 365 Planner Essentials from Bigger Brains.
