Microsoft Office 365 Groups

Office 365 Groups include communication tools, file storage and sharing.  The biggest benefit, of Office 365 Groups, is not it's file storage capacity, but in it's ability to manage communication, notes and files related to a focused idea.  Groups might be used for:

  • Short term or long-term projects that require email communications, meeting notes and related documents be stored within one access point.
  • Files that need to be shared among multiple offices across campus.
  • Combining email communications, notes, web resources and documents related to a common theme.
  • Collaborating with guests who are non-SVSU-domain users.

Email Alias

Request an email alias for your Office 365 Group from the ITS Support Center.  The Office 365 Group email alias is a shorter email address for your Group.  It makes it easier for people outside of your Group to send messages that all members of the Group have access to read.  All members can also reply to messages received to the Group.  Those messages will come from the individual who is responding.  If messages should appear to come from the Group instead of individuals, specify to the ITS Support Center which members should have "Send As" permission for the alias.  Any new members needing "Send As" permission from the Group email alias must inform ITS Support Center.
