Learn about Office 365 groups

Office 365 Groups is a service developed with collaboration in mind. It works with the Office 365 tools you use already so you can collaborate with your teammates when writing documents, creating spreadsheets, working on project plans, scheduling meetings, or sending email.

For the latest news and videos about Office 365 Groups see Office Blogs

This article will help introduce you to what groups are, and give you some helpful links to the next steps.

TIP: If you’re looking for information on using Outlook contact groups to send email to a list of people – such as a group of friends – see Create a contact group.

What are groups?

Groups in Office 365 let you choose a set of people that you wish to collaborate with and easily set up a collection of resources for those people to share. You don’t have to worry about manually assigning permissions to all those resources because adding members to the group automatically gives them the permissions they need to the tools your group provides. Additionally, groups are the new and improved experience for what we used to use distribution lists or shared mailboxes to do.

TIP: For information on upgrading your traditional distribution lists to Office 365 Groups see this article.

The specific resources that are provided depends slightly on the groups experience your team wants to have, so let’s quickly look at the choices. While you’re considering the options it’s important to remember that one size rarely fits all. Different teams may prefer to work different ways and Office 365 has the tools to enable collaboration in whatever form your teams prefer.

Groups in Outlook

If you prefer the shared inbox mode of collaboration, then the groups experience in Outlook is for you. By creating a group in Outlook you’ll get:

  • Shared Inbox – For email conversations between your members. This inbox has an email address and can be set to accept messages from people outside the group and even outside your organization, much like a traditional distribution list
  • Shared Calendar – For scheduling events related to the group
  • SharePoint Document Library – A central place for the group to store and share files
  • Shared OneNote Notebook – For gathering ideas, research, and information
  • SharePoint Team Site – A central repository for information, links and content relating to your group
  • Planner – For assigning and managing project tasks among your group members

You don’t have to manually create any of those resources; creating the group automatically creates them for you and assigns the necessary permissions for your group members so they can start using them right away.

You can access these resources through the familiar Microsoft Outlook 2016 desktop client, via Outlook on the Web or using our dedicated Microsoft Groups apps on iOS, Android or Windows Phone.

After a group in Outlook outlives its intended purpose, you can delete it to free up system resources and to remove the group from being listed or displayed. See: Delete a group.

Groups in Yammer

Yammer brings the enterprise social experience to your collaboration. It helps you make new connections and discoveries across your organization. It can help you communicate and discuss ideas company-wide or around common interest areas.

By creating an Office 365 connected group in Yammer you’ll get:

  • Yammer Group – A common place to have conversations and share information
  • SharePoint Document Library – A central place for the group to store and share files
  • Shared OneNote Notebook – For gathering ideas, research, and information
  • SharePoint Team Site – A central repository for information, links and content relating to your group
  • Planner – For assigning and managing project tasks among your group members

You can access these tools through Yammer in your browser or using the Yammer app on your iOS, Android or Windows Phone device.

What do I need to use groups?

Any Office 365 subscription that has Exchange Online and SharePoint Online will support groups. That includes the Business Essentials and Business Premium plans, and the Enterprise E1, E3 and E5 plans.

If you have an Exchange-only plan you can still get the shared Inbox and shared Calendar features of groups in Outlook but you won’t get the document library, Planner or any of the other capabilities. If you have a Yammer-only plan you will still have the conversations feed in the Yammer group but you won’t get the document library, Planner, or any of the other capabilities.

Private groups vs public groups

When creating a group you’ll need to decide if you want it to be a private group or a public group. Content in a public group can be seen by anybody in your organization, and anybody in your organization is able to join the group. Content in a private group can only be seen by the members of the group and people who want to join a private group have to be approved by a group owner.

Neither public groups nor private groups can be seen or accessed by people outside of your organization unless those people have been specifically invited as guests.

To change your group from public to private (or vice-versa) go to the group conversation location, either in Outlook or Yammer. For Office 365 Groups in Outlook, go to Outlook 2016 and choose Edit Group from the ribbon. On the group settings pane that appears you’ll be able to toggle the privacy setting. In Outlook on the web click the More group actions button at the top right (looks like three dots) and choose Edit group from the drop-down menu. For Office 365 Connected Yammer Groups, go to the group in Yammer and click the settings icon in the group header to edit the group’s privacy setting.

How do I manage my groups?

Every group has at least one owner that can add or remove members and do some basic curation of the group and its content. Additionally, if you have Exchange Online Administrator permissions you can administer your groups from the Office 365 Admin center and from PowerShell.

Office 365 administration announcements: new admin center reaches general availability and introducing the Service health dashboard

Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re taking the new Office 365 admin center out of preview. Since the first preview in September 2015, the new admin center has provided admins with an improved management experience that makes it easier and faster for you to manage Office 365 while providing new capabilities and insights.


The new Office 365 admin center reaches general availability

Over the last years, Office 365 has been evolving at a rapid pace, making more features and functionality available to users and admins on an almost daily basis. Over 350 new services and features were introduced last year alone. As we continue to add new capabilities to Office 365, we are focused on providing a first-class admin experience with tools to efficiently manage all aspects of the service. The new admin center has been designed to support this rapid growth and will continue to improve as the service further evolves.

We’d like to again thank each one of you who has provided feedback on the new admin center. Over the last year, we have received more than 49,000 pieces of feedback that have helped us identify gaps, fix bugs and evolve the new admin center to a management experience that meets the needs of all company sizes. And it’s great to hear how it’s already making your work easier:

“I love everything you are doing to make Office 365 for Business an incredible management and organizational tool for business. The old format sorely needed updating and is a constant source of complaints by users. Thanks guys for finally getting this whole thing right!”
—Customer feedback in the new admin center

Here is a summary of the main improvements:

The new admin center makes it easier and faster to manage Office 365

Quickly access relevant information and functionality from the new home page—The home page has been redesigned with you and your most common tasks in mind—such as adding a user or resetting a password. The new admin center makes these items accessible directly from the home page. The home page also proactively surfaces information important to you, such as notifications from the Message Center.


Customize your admin experience—Frequent tasks may vary from admin to admin, so we’ve enabled customization of the home page, making it a truly personal experience. Remove cards that aren’t important to you. Rearrange cards so the ones you care about most are at the top, and add other cards so you can get to tasks straight from the home page.

Quickly find what you’re looking for with improved navigation and search—If you’re looking for a specific setting or feature, you can use the navigation menu, which has been reorganized to make it easier for you to find information. For example, you can see the settings for all services in one place. The search bar (at the top) is the easiest and fastest way to navigate the admin center, by giving you the power to search for most every capability within the admin center.

Manage licenses in fewer steps—The new admin center makes it easier for you to purchase and assign licenses. When you add a new user, you can buy and assign a license in one simple step.

More functionality at your fingertips

The new admin center isn’t just an update to the look and feel of the old admin center, it also provides new management capabilities and additional actionable information.

Manage more user details—Now, the user list supports infinite scroll, so that admins can see all their users on one page, including which license is assigned to a specific user. When you click a user’s name, important properties appear in a fly-out window allowing you to edit settings such as email forwarding, automatic replies and email apps.


Edit more user details simultaneously—The new admin center provides the ability to bulk edit more user details simultaneously, including product licenses, domains or user roles. In addition, the bulk edit limit has increased—you can now edit up to 100 users at the same time.

Edit all groups in one place—The new admin center fully supports all group types including distribution lists, security groups, mail-enabled security groups and Office 365 Groups. You can manage all your groups from the same location.

Message Center improvements—The Message Center has completely been redesigned to provide you with more functionality. You can filter by message type, dismiss a message, mark it as read or unread or even share it with peers. The Message Center also allows you to use machine translation to view messages in your preferred language.

Reports you can act on

The new admin center also provides you with a richer reporting experience and additional insights that help you to proactively manage your service.

New usage reporting dashboard—The new usage reporting dashboard provides you with valuable insights about how the Office 365 services are being used and delivers details down to the individual user level. The usage reports will be accompanied by a Power BI content pack that will allow you to share the reports and to pivot by attributes like region or department. More information will be shared next week.


Export additional information—To further analyze and process the data, you can now export more information directly from the UI—including the usage reports as well as the user list—to a CSV file.

Monitor your Directory Synchronization (DirSync) Status and quickly identify issues—The DirSync card on the home page and the new subsite make it easy for admins to understand their DirSync status and to identify errors.

We will continue to further improve the new admin center to provide you with the best management experience possible. We’re currently working on additional reports and on modernizing the product admin centers.

The old admin center will be retired at the end of December.

Announcing a new Service health dashboard

For many of you, moving to Office 365 was a big change. In an on-premises world, if there was a service incident, you were the ones investigating and solving the issue. With Office 365, you trust Microsoft with running the service and quickly solving service incidents. But moving to a cloud service shouldn’t mean losing the ability to know what’s going on. With this in mind, we built a new Service health dashboard that provides admins with a new level of service health insights that are personalized for their organization. This allows admins to stay on top of service incidents, improve your internal support experience and improve your users’ Office 365 experience.

Since the launch of Office 365 in 2011, our promise to provide you with timely, targeted and accurate communications in the event of a service incident hasn’t changed, and we’ve focused on being transparent in our operations so that you can monitor the service, track issues and have a historical view of availability. Service health is a very important area for all of you and over the last year, we’ve received a lot of feedback that has helped us to reimagine service health.

Here is a summary of the improvements that you’ll find in the new Service health dashboard:

Access rich and more actionable incident insights—The new Service health dashboard provides you with more relevant incident insights and features a new view that separates major business critical outages from others and splits them into two categories: incidents and advisories. This new view makes it easier for you to identify the issues relevant for you that you might want to act on immediately.


Quickly understand the incident—A new summary view surfaces the most relevant and critical details to you in just two short sentences—easy and quick to consume. If you want to access additional details, you can go to a more detailed view that provides you with all available information, including workarounds and message history.

Easily see the impact for your organization—The new dashboard allows you to quickly understand the impact of the service incident on your organization by showing you the number of impacted users.


Sign up for the preview program

The preview of the new Service health dashboard is available for Office 365 customers worldwide today. To get access to the new dashboard, please send an email with the subject “I want to be part of the preview” to shdpreviewsignup@service.microsoft.com and include both your tenant ID and your tenant domain (i.e., contoso.com). After we have enabled the preview for your tenant (it can take 1-2 weeks), you will receive an email with access instructions.

More to come

This is just the beginning. Our goal is to provide you with richer and more actionable service health insights that will help you to stay on top of incidents, reduce support costs and improve end user experiences.

We’ll be adding more enhancements in the coming months, including:

Tell us about issues—If you are impacted by an issue that is not showing up on your Service health dashboard, the Tell us feature will provide you with a quick and easy way to let us know.

Stay informed through your preferred channel—The new Service health dashboard will enable you to sign up for notifications via text and/or email so that you can monitor the service and track issues through the channel you prefer.

Access user level details—In addition to the number of impacted users, you will also be able to access a full list of impacted users to enable you to drive more targeted communication and support.

Check the health of your users—The new Service health dashboard will also include new features that will improve the end user experience. On-demand user health checks will allow you to check end user health by running a test against our service. User Monitoring will enable you to proactively monitor specific users and to find out about possible health issues affecting those users right away—often before they might even notice them.

Let us know what you think!

Please try the new features and provide feedback using the feedback link in the lower right corner of the admin center. And don’t be surprised if we respond to your feedback. We truly read every piece of feedback that we receive to make sure the Office 365 administration experience meets your needs.

Como usuarios administradores de O365 nos enfrentamos a un mundo diverso de entornos y requerimientos.

Una de las aplicaciones que requiere atención es OneDrive for Business.


Supongamos que como usuarios Administradores somos contactados para dar una solución a ciertos archivos que se sincronizan durante determinado tiempo pero que por su tamaño y uso interno no es necesario que se este sincronizando frecuentemente sino que tenga determinada programación.


Podriamos dar solución a dicho requerimiento generando 3 tareas programadas de Windows que ejecuten las siguientes condiciones.

  1. La primera tarea programada ejecuta un archivo .bat que automaticamente inicia el proceso de OneDrive for Business (tener encuenta que dicho script debera ejecutarse en modo administrador) Esta primera condición inicia automaticamente OneDrive y permite que todas las carpetas que han sido configuradas para la sincronización se sincronicen con el equipo. iniciar-cmd-administrator-001
  2. La segunda tarea programada ejecuta un archivo .bat que automaticamente detiene el proceso de ejecución de tareas OneDrive for Business (tener encuenta que dicho script debera ejecutarse en modo administrador).  Esta segunda condición inicia automaticamente la detención de OneDrive  y permite que todas las carpetas que han sido configuradas para la sincronización dejen de sincronizarse con el equipo. finalizar-proceso-onedrive-002
  3. La tercera tarea programada ejecuta un archivo .bat que automaticamente reinicia el proceso de ejecución de tareas de OneDrive for Business. Esta tercera condición reinicia automaticamente OneDrive for Business y permite que nuevamente las carpetas que fueron configuradas para la sincronización se re sincronicen con el equipo. reiniciar-cmd-sync003


  • Las tareas programadas deberán ejecutarse en intervalos de tiempo diferentes.
  • El archivo .bat de inicio del proceso de ejecución de OneDrive esta configurado para ejecutarse en modo administrador, luego el archivo .bat para reiniciar el proceso de ejecución de OneDrive no debe ser configurado para ejecutarse en modo administrador toda vez que al hacerlo generara error de ejecución.

% Esperado o Avance Planeado en Project Server 2013

Dependiendo el idioma de nuestro Project Server 2013/2016 o Project Profesional 2013/2016 podemos utilizar una de estas 2 formulas para calcular el porcentaje esperado o avance planeado de tareas en nuestro cronograma:

Avance Planeado en Español:

Format(Round(IIf(IsNull([Fin estimado de línea base]) Or [Comienzo previsto] > [Fecha de estado] Or [Duración estimada de línea base] = 0; IIf([Hito] And [Comienzo previsto] <= [Fecha de estado]; 100; 0); IIf([Fin estimado de línea base] <= [Fecha de estado]; 100; (ProjDateDiff([Comienzo previsto]; [Fecha de estado]; [Calendario del proyecto]) / [Duración estimada de línea base])))) / 100; “0%”)

Avance Planeado en Ingles:

IIf([Baseline Start]<50000;IIf(datediff(‘d’;[Status Date];[Baseline Start])<=0;IIf(datediff(‘d’;[Status Date];[Baseline Finish])>0;((Projdatediff([Baseline Start];[Status Date])/([Baseline Duration]))*100);100);0);0)

Las 2 formulas presentan como resultado el mismo valor a pesar de las diferencias en su estructura. la primera establece el resultado en formato de porcentaje y tiene en cuenta el calendario del proyecto, mientras que la segunda establece el resultado incluyendo números decimales. Les dejo de tarea cambiar la primera formula al ingles.

Consideraciones a tener en cuenta para el correcto calculo de las formulas:

  • Las tareas deben establecer líneas base
  • Debe estar establecida la fecha de estado (Status Date)
  • Estas formulas son aceptadas en el mercado como correctas, a pesar de sus excepciones.

Excepciones de la formula:

  • Todas las formulas asumen que la duración es continua entre la fechas de inicio y fin planificadas, por tanto, cuando las tareas no tienen una duración acorde a las fechas planificadas, la formula presentará un valor de avance planeado impreciso.
  • Si el recurso asignado a la tarea no tiene una duración diaria completa (8 horas) sino diferente (ejemplo: 4 horas) la formula igual presentará un valor de avance planeado impreciso.

Ejemplo de las excepciones:

  • Datos Iniciales:
    • Comienzo previsto: 22/07/2015 9:00
    • Fin estimado de línea base: 27/07/2015 15:00
    • Duración estimada de línea base: 16 Hrs
    • Fecha de Estado: 23/07/2015 18:00
  • Resultado de las formulas:
    • % Esperado: 93,75%
  • Aclaraciones del resultado:
    • Entre las fechas de inicio y fin hay 26 horas laborales (en jornada laboral de 8 horas diarias, de lunes a viernes) pero la tarea esta ajustada para ejecutarse solo en 16 horas (posiblemente distribuidas en 4 horas diarias)
    • La formula asume que la duración es continua (26 horas), por tanto, si la fecha de estado es el día 23/07/2015 a las 6 PM, ya se han ejecutado 15 horas y el porcentaje esperado es calculado en 93,75%.

Solución para las exclusiones:

  • No existen soluciones, el líder del proyecto debe tener en cuenta estas variaciones en el seguimiento de su cronograma de forma tal que pueda realizar el seguimiento de la forma adecuada.
  • Es imposible crear una formula que contemple todas las excepciones en la ejecución de tareas, como:
    • Tareas programadas para ejecución en horas especificas de cada día, que no cubren toda la jornada laboral.
    • Recursos que trabajan en jornadas laborales especificas o cambiantes día a día.
    • Días de inactividad durante la ejecución de la tarea, pero que no están marcados como no laborales en el calendario.
    • Ejecución de la tarea en horas cambiantes día a día que no correspondan con la jornada laboral establecida.

Agradezco si alguna persona tiene una solución completa o parcial de esta excepción de las formulas.

Script: Listado de Campos Personalizados en #ProjectOnline

Project Online y Project Server permite consultar la lista completa de campos personalizados configurados únicamente a los usuarios con los permisos administrativos requeridos.

Qué sucede si un director de proyecto o un jefe de cartera requiere saber cual es la formula que se aplica en cierto campo del proyecto, como se calcula un indicador o simplemente, cuales campos puede utilizar en sus cronogramas de proyectos:

No hay forma que un usuario sin permisos administrativos pueda consultar la lista de campos personalizados de Project. Debe buscar un documento aparte (Si existe) o consultar a los administradores de la plataforma.

Mediante un script, que consulta la información de Project mediante ODATA es posible crear una página y listar todos los campos personalizados, creados en la plataforma.


Los pasos para crear esta página son los siguientes:

  • Subimos el archivo Script en la biblioteca de activos del sitio o la biblioteca de su preferencia.

Yammer Mobile Feature Updates

Yammer’s vision is to empower and connect every employee to make better decisions, faster. As part of our mission to help users work from anywhere, the Yammer team has a number of new mobile features to announce. These features include updates around mobile accessibility, improved mobile notifications, new group header offerings, mobile UI improvements and a redesign of the iPad mobile app.


Users will be seeing these changes as they are tested and released over the next few months.  Additional details are listed below.


Accessibility Features

The first category of updates is focused on new accessibility features.  On Android, Yammer will support keyboard navigation across UI elements. On the iOS platform, users who have selected large text fonts on their systems settings will have large text automatically enabled in Yammer.

Mobile Notifications

The second category of updates is around mobile notifications.  To match the web experience, users will receive the same types of push notifications for conversations that would show up in their Inbox (i.e. announcements, messages where users are mentioned, when someone replies to a user, etc.).  At the same time, Yammer will manage the number of notifications so users working regularly in Yammer will not get inundated with notifications on conversations that they have already seen.  Users who have not engaged recently and have gotten a new like or follower will also be notified.


Likes and Follows 


Group Headers

The next category of updates focuses on group headers.  Group headers are important because they are visual cues that provide context to users when they are working with colleagues in a Yammer group.  It also helps establish strengthen group identity. Group header patterns will also be made available on Android as well as iOS. Previously, group headers had not been rolled out to the iPad, but this will soon be made available.  In the next major update, iPad will not only have the standard group headers for feature parity, but it will also support the newly rolled out group header patterns.

Mobile UI Improvements

The next category of updates is around mobile UI improvements for all platforms.  This affects iPad, iPhone, and Android.  Features currently available on web that will be rolled out to all mobile platforms include:

  • Groups – highlighting new/unread content via New and All tabs
  • Groups – easily moving from one group to the next
  • External groups for iPad
  • Consistent navigation across platforms



iPad Redesign

In an effort to deliver the same experience on iPad and iPhone, Yammer will redesign the navigation structure for iPad.  Going forward, the changes will also enable new features to be rolled out at the same time on both clients.

#ProjectOnline Actualización de #ProjectPro 2016 Obligatoria

Microsoft realizará un cambio en los requerimientos de la plataforma a partir del próximo 28 de marzo de 2017, cuyo principal cambio será que Project Profesional 2013 ya NO podrá conectarse a Project Online.


Que significa esto:

  • Si ya tenemos Project Profesional 2016, simplemente debemos aplicar actualizaciones.
  • Si tenemos Project Profesional 2013, debemos adquirir la versión 2016 o perderemos funcionalidades de Project Online e incluso la posible conexión.


Esta noticia de seguro no alegrará a muchos usuarios de la plataforma.
