Description

Microsoft 365 groups give admins the ability to manage a collection of users, grouped by a common property. For example, there may be a marketing group that contains all the marketing users in the organization. MS365 groups have the added benefit of managing resource access at the group level, rather than individually at the user level. 

In this lab, you will create and manage a new Microsoft 365 group with group members.

Note: Due to this lab requiring the creation of a Microsoft 365 organization with an Admin Center, if you don't already have one you will need to provide a mobile phone number to pass the account creation process.
