Session - SPSSTHLM03: Office 365 Groups Deep Dive

Level: 300
Track: IT Pro, Business
Office 365 Groups are Microsoft’s answer to sharing information and collaborating across ad hoc groups and project teams. In this session we will take a deep dive into some of the more advanced Groups capabilities and into the management and governance aspects of Groups.

First up is Office 365 Planner, which offers people a simple and highly visual way to organize teamwork and which leverages the Office 365 Groups functionality heavily. I’ll show you how Planner works and what scenarios Planner supports in your organization.

Second, we’ll discuss Office 365 Connectors for Groups. Office 365 Connectors are a great way to get useful information and content into your Office 365 Group. Any user can connect their group to services like Trello, Bing News, Twitter, etc., and get notified of the group’s activity in that service. I’ll demonstrate how to use Connectors in your organization.

Last but not least, we’ll talk about manageability of Office 365 Groups. Groups in Office 365 are intended to be created and managed by end users. I’ll show you how to set up some policies and create some quick reports through PowerShell to manage your environment when it comes to Groups.
