Take your intranet with you to stay connected and informed about important content, news, sites and people while on the go – for those in-between moments. You can easily get back to what’s relevant to you, alongside powerful search capabilities to find what you need, plus provide feedback via comments and likes – all to keep work moving forward.
You can now connect an existing SharePoint team site to a new group in Office 365, to improve your team’s productivity with the content and resources of an Office 365 group, including:
A shared mailbox for group conversations in Outlook
A shared calendar to track deadlines, events, and team vacations
Planner to manage tasks, and
The option to create a team Microsoft Teams for as a hub for collaboration.
One of the coolest collaboration features in Office 365 is Office 365 groups. Your employees can create these groups on the fly and use them to collaborate with their co-workers on projects, sharing team documents, emails and calendars. These groups are easy and fast to create and judging by their usage telemetry, they are VERY popular.
Because it's so easy for users to create Office 365 Groups, you aren't inundated with requests to create them on behalf of other people. Depending on your business, however, you might want to control who has the ability to create groups. Why do this?
This article gives you the steps to turn off the ability to create groups in all Office 365 services that use groups: Outlook, Planner, SharePoint, Yammer, and Microsoft Teams.
Yammer now integrates with Office 365 Groups. This means that group experiences in Yammer will get access to Office 365 services, such as SharePoint Online, OneNote and Planner.
Yammer and Office 365 Groups
Yammer has begun to integrate into the Office 365 Groups service for networks that meet the eligibility criteria detailed below.
We are pleased to share with you, in our blog of December 15, our webinar on "Office 365 Groups for Schools and Universities".
With Office 365, Microsoft's online collaboration platform, students and teachers have access to a package of services that provide multiple supports in the work to be provided before, during and after classes.
At work, people often participate across five or more groups. It becomes important for everyone involved to streamline their efforts and stay on the same page. With SharePoint team sites connected to Office 365 groups, every group gets a team site, and team sites you create from SharePoint home in Office 365 create a connected group.

Microsoft Teams is a new addition to your Office 365 hub. It’s a solution specifically made for team collaboration. Though it shares some of the functionalities of Yammer and Skype, Teams does a whole lot that makes it a unique, formidable addition to your apps.
There are many reasons to decide to transform a Distribution List (also known as a Distribution Group) into an Office 365 Group. It can be to implement searchable history and context, to make the information public by default, or even to integrate it to calendars, and OneNote.
