I have four years of IT experience working for Microsoft with two years of specialized experience as a customer training specialist training users on Microsoft tools. Today, I'm going to take you through managing groups within Microsoft 365. In Microsoft 365, there are multiple types of groups, each with their own unique purposes. Each of these groups provides a mixture of different benefits organizations can utilize to get the most out of their Microsoft 365 subscription.
