Now it’s easier to collaborate in Office 365 Groups with new management tools

Microsoft announced several new enhancements to make it easier to manage Office 365 Groups. The enhancements help teams collaborate in their app of choice and allow users to easily create a group within seconds. Self-service creation is convenient for users, but information technology administrators also need to be able to easily manage groups, gain insight into their use and ensure compliance.

The changes allow administrators to restore deleted groups, manage group content by creating retention policies and use labels to classify group emails and documents for governance.

  • Restore deleted groups—If you deleted an Office 365 group, it’s now retained by default for a period of 30 days. Within that period, you can restore the group and its associated apps and data via a new PowerShell cmdlet.
  • Retention policies—Manage group content produced by setting up retention policies to keep what you want and get rid of what you don’t need. Admins can now create Office 365 Groups retention policies that apply to the group’s shared inbox and files in one step using the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center.
  • Label management—With labels, you can classify Office 365 Groups emails and documents across your organization for governance, and enforce retention rules based on that classification.
  • Guest access—Guest access in Office 365 Groups enables you and your team to collaborate with people from outside your organization by granting them access to group conversations, files, calendar invitations and the group notebook.
