Microsoft 365 Groups

Microsoft 365 Groups is a collaboration service that works with the Microsoft 365 tools you use already, such as Word, Excel, and Outlook. With Groups, you can easily collaborate with a chosen set of people on documents, spreadsheets, project plans, meetings, and email.

Groups in Microsoft 365 let you set up a collection of shared resources for your team, such as a group inbox, calendar, or document library. Adding members to the group automatically gives them the necessary permissions to access these tools, so you don’t have to worry about assigning permissions manually. Groups offer an improved experience over traditional distribution lists or shared mailboxes.

By using Microsoft 365 Groups, you can work more efficiently with your team and easily share resources.
