Hi, and welcome! I'm Surya from Medha Cloud, and today, I'm going to show you how to create and use Office 365 Groups to enhance collaboration within your team.

What are Office 365 Groups?

Office 365 Groups are a great way to keep your team organized and productive. They provide a unified space for your team to share resources like a common mailbox, calendar, and document library. This makes it easy to stay on top of projects, communicate with each other, and collaborate on documents.
