At the SharePoint Conference in March, we announced our roadmap for a set of connected experiences that would enable your company to work like a network. This month, we reached an important milestone with Office Delve. Continuing on this journey, today we are rolling out the first phase of Groups in Office 365.
Getting things done at work means sharing information and collaborating across ad hoc groups and project teams. But, often times the tools we use to bring people together are different in each app—distribution groups in Outlook, buddy lists in Lync, groups in Yammer. That’s why we’re introducing Groups in Office 365, so you can easily connect with the colleagues, information and applications you need to do more.
Take a look at this video to learn how Groups brings people together to enable better communication and collaboration across Office 365.
To support a project, you can easily create a new Group and invite colleagues. You can also search for and join existing Groups, which are open by default, to see all discussions, milestones and files and get up to speed quickly. Of course, you can create private Groups as well for sensitive projects and content.
