Office 365 Groups Properties and Behaviors

Frequent Contributor

Well the Current Microsoft Office 365 Groups documentation now directs you in the direction the type of Group(s) you should create considering one of the 3 types of requirement and only three app they recommend to create Office 365 groups from are Outlook, Teams and Yammer,


However there is no clear documentation with respect to the properties or attributes which are set on a group and at the same what all tenant level settings govern settings on the group being created and that's not all most confusing is which all apps this group is visible and why and which one(s) this will not be visible why ?


If one has to prepare a report / inventory as which group was created using which application and in which all application(s) this group will be visible/accessible ?


I have researched on this and found at the azure ad level there is an attribute on these office 365 group type objects provisioningoption for there is no clear-complete information-documentation available how many values this attribute does accepts and there corresponding purposes


There is one info-graphic available at An everyday guide to Office 365 Groups


However better will be to prepare a complete landscape table clearly showing or rather say depicting where the group is created and what all features it will have and which will it inherit

See - Don't depend on the provisioningoption property.


My count is that there are 19 different ways to create Office 365 Groups today. There are probably more if I looked... The point is that there's many different ways to create an Office 365 Group and that number i increases over time.

Right however this does not help me in what i am trying to accomplish,

What I need is a table showing a O365 group when created from a specific O365 App,

Which all other Office 365 Apps this group will be visible and Why ?

What all features will this group will support and why ?

What all factors as in the settings at the tenant level or for that matter at any other level affect the functioning of a group and how ?


When is Microsoft going to publish this documentation ?


There are more options these i think are related to the type of tenant once has
