Groups in Microsoft 365 let you choose a set of people that you wish to collaborate with and easily create email distribution lists, document libraries, and Teams for collaboration.
Here are some different ways to use 365 groups:
- Create a group in Outlook
- Create a Microsoft Team
- Create a team site in SharePoint Online
- Create a plan in Microsoft Planner
How do I add students or non-CUNY employees to my group or Team?
In the current Microsoft 365 environment, configured by CUNY, students are part of separate organization. To add students or non-CUNY employees to your group, you need to add them as guests. View the 365 guest documentation to learn more about adding guests and guest limitations.
