What’s new in Office 365 Groups for April 2017 & Office 365 Groups AMA!

Former Employee

On April 6, 2017 Microsoft announced updates to Office 365 groups and a look at the roadmap for the next three months. New enhancements for administering Office 365 Groups include;


  • Restore deleted groups—If you deleted an Office 365 group, it’s now retained by default for a period of 30 days. Within that period, you can restore the group and its associated apps and data via a new PowerShell cmdlet.
  • Retention policies—Manage group content produced by setting up retention policies to keep what you want and get rid of what you don’t need. Admins can now create Office 365 Groups retention policies that apply to the group’s shared inbox and files in one step using the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center.
  • Label management—With labels, you can classify Office 365 Groups emails and documents across your organization for governance, and enforce retention rules based on that classification.


To coincide with this announcement, we are excited to announce an Office 365 Groups AMA. Join us on Thursday, April 13, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. PT in the Office 365 Groups AMA space.
