Create a group

 

You can create groups in Office 365.  These are also known as personal groups, which are groups that are stored in your Contacts folder and can contain entries from your personal Contacts and from your organization’s address book.  

 

1. To create a group, click on People in the menu at the top of the page.




2. Press the  button found on the left-hand side of the page.


3. Press create group from the list.




4. This will open a blank group form. Enter the group name that you want and any notes. To add members, type the name of the person you want to add in Members. Office 365 will search for a match in your Contacts and in your organization’s address book. If a match isn’t found, you can search for that person. You can also type an email address directly in Members. Press Enter to add your selection to the group.

When you’re done, select SaveSave to save your changes or discardDiscard to cancel.
