Thanks to the Outlook Web App, you can now create a name for your team and coordinate your schedules and meetings, as well as send team emails.
Email Your Team
After you have entered your Office 365 Login, make sure you are in the Outlook Web App and then click Home > Options. In this menu, select the Groups link and click New (you will find this under Public Groups > Own).
First select a name for your group and type it under Display Name. You will then need to choose the members for your new team/group by using the Add > Select Members options.
