Office 365 Groups & Microsoft Teams, 1-Day Online Course

* Please note that this is an online course, delivered remotely by a live instructor *

Course Code: O365GRTM

Duration: 1 Day


Over many years, we have come to understand and love a suite of Microsoft products including products like Outlook and Excel; most of these products have been with us for over ten years and often make the work we do possible.

Office 365 has introduced a range of new products causing much excitement and more than a little confusion. This class will help you to understand two of these newer products, Office 365 Groups and Teams.

We cover the specific details of how to use Groups and Teams, while also looking at the bigger picture to help you understand how you might use them in the real world to improve the way you share files and communicate as a business.

Finally, we discuss the administration process for Groups and Teams, with a review of the management options including security and controlling who can use the tools.

Module 1: Office 365 the Bigger Picture

To provide context to the use and benefits of Office 365 Groups and Teams we need to start with a brief introduction to Office 365.

By realising the limits of these we can start to understand the benefits of Groups and Teams.
