Hello all,

 

Full disclosure -  new to Office 365 Groups and newer than new with Sharepoint in general, but I believe we have a use case in our organization, I am just trying to flush it all out.

 

I have a group of 5 trainers that are mostly remote and cover different geographic areas coordinating different training seminars.  Currently they use Google Docs and Calendar for everything.  I am thinking I can replace this with an O365 group - but I do have a question.  Is it possible to have multiple calendars within a O365 group.  I believe we have 5 or 7 geographic areas that we run these seminars in.  In their google account they have 1 calendar per region where they track the seminar schedule.  

 

Anyone have any experience with this?

 

Thanks

Steve

If you can't have the events from all regions on one calendar then you'll need a separate Group for each region.

So the answer is No ;-)...each Group has only a single calendar. What you could do is take advantage of modern team sites coming to Office 365 Groups so you could have in the Group site a calendar for each geography

I am wondering if a team site in sharepoint may be the way to go for now (not that I know anything about those)- depending on the road map for modern team sites.

 

I will look into this

 

Thank you for the responses.
