Office 365, Unified Groups

Unified Groups are groups based exclusively in Office 365. Anyone in Office365 can create these groups by creating a Microsoft Team, which creates a Unified Group or from the Outlook Client.

The best part of Unified Groups is that they can function like a shared mailbox and calendar in Office 365 email and that any individual can create these Unified Groups as they need.

To learn more about how to create and use Unified Groups, please refer to the Microsoft Office 365 Groups document:
Please note if you need to enable external recipients to be able to email this account, there is a button on the Group settings in the Outlook Client that allows "Let People outside the organization email the Group".
Unified groups can be set to use the domain; if you need a group with an alias, please request and use a mail-enabled distribution group instead:
For group permissions such as SendAs and FullAccess, these requests will need to be completed by an exchange admin and should be reassigned to UIUC-TechServices-Microsoft 365
