New Features in Office365 Groups

Groups in Office365 have been available for some time to the Stonehill community, and many of you have taken advantage of the great features available through them. Groups allow teams of people to collaborate by providing access to a shared calendar, documents,  notebook, and discussion area (which also functions as an email list).

Microsoft will be adding more features to Groups over the coming months. Throughout November and December, Groups users will begin to see a number of features including access to a "Site" that members of the group can see and edit and to new tools like the "Planner." Those who use Groups may have noticed some of these changes already.

As the new features are introduced, IT will update our Knowledge Base to help you learn how to use these new tools. We also have staff available for one-on-one and small group consultations and training sessions for staff and faculty interested in taking advantage of these and other features in Office365.  

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the IT Service Desk at 508-565-4357 or via e-mail at
