When you create an Office 365 group in Outlook, you're provisioning that group. In this video, learn about group apps and how to use the group calendar.
- [Instructor] When I create a new group, I get more than simply a list of people. I also get applications that are automatically assigned to an Office 365 group that is created in Outlook. So I get email, and if I wanted to see all the email that was sent to the group, I can click there, or I can click down here on the email app. I get a calendar. And this is a real value for people who are working together on a project, the ability to have a calendar to track their events, or the ability to have a calendar to track, for example, when people will not be in the office. This is the calendar for the Project Managers group right here. And all of the members of the group can place things on this calendar. Returning to the People App, if I click Groups, it will actually take me to the group's page, which is right here. I can store files here for people to share in my group. I have a OneNote notebook that is shared. We have a site in SharePoint Online that was created simply by my creating this Office 365 group. So if my colleagues want to be able to collaborate, they have a lot of space to do that in. While SharePoint loads, I also want to point out that we have access to Microsoft Planner, which is great for project managers. They're used to using planning tools to begin with, will make them very happy to have access. But here's our new SharePoint team site that was just created as part of creating an Office 365 group in Outlook on the web. Your organization may have other collaboration tools it uses. It may use Microsoft Teams and that's great. If it uses SharePoint, then you're already used to being able to use some of the tools that are available to you here. But if you're looking for a way for a group of people to collaborate, that's exactly why this type of a group exists.
