Do you need to organize and work with a team on a project? In this tutorial, learn how to use Office 365 Groups to find and share information using conversations, share and collaborate on team files, share milestones and schedules on the team calendar, add and assign team tasks using Microsoft Planner, and add new members to your group so they can get caught up with the team.

Here's the setup instructions for the device of your choice.

When opportunity strikes… I can easily set up and collaborate with my team using Office 365 Groups.

I keep in touch with my team in the group conversation space.

I can review all our interactions, add my own comments, and like posts.

And I can use “at mentions” to alert a particular team member or even another group.

All our files, attachments, and pictures are in our Group’s shared file space… so everyone’s working with the same version of the same document.

And we can upload or edit those documents right from Outlook.

We share our group meetings and milestones on our Group calendar.

I can review our project tasks, assign them to team members, and check their status in Planner.

And when new people join the team, I just add them to the group so they can easily get caught up with our conversations, files, and shared OneNote notebook.

They can even discover other Groups to join to find and share all kinds of information across our organization.

With Groups in Outlook, all our team resources and communications are in one shared space.
