Making a Outlook Group with an Existing MS Team

Copper Contributor

We have a Team in Teams that we would like to make a group in outlook as well, so that the file sharing will be in the same place for Outlook Group and Team.

 

Is this possible? It seem pretty straightforward making a group into a team but not the other way.

 

Cheers

There is no "other way" because every Team already has a Group behind it. You simply need to "unhide" it as Microsoft recently introduced a change that removes any such groups from the Outlook view. Use this:

 

Set-UnifiedGroup teamxxx -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled $false

 

Now I suppose it depends on where you created the group initially, but that's the general idea.

Don’t forget the : (comma) :upside_down_face:

HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled: $false

@Vasil Michev Thanks very much for the help. I'm not quite smart enough to follow how to change that setting.

 

Where would I go to do that?

@Vasil Michev I did create it in teams.

Microsoft has recently implemented a change in how Office 365 Groups are handled by default in Exchange Online. 

 

Check out this blog post which talks about this change in detail:
