Hi All

I wondered... How do YOU organise your 365 groups ?

I terms of SharePoint sites, Planner & Teams - what kind of naming convention do you undertake to keep order in the 365 groups? In a scenario where we are able to create separate teams & planners.

@Domin007 we use a naming convention like team-xxx-yy-zz what means the following:

xxx stands for business unit, yy for the department and zz for the team name.

 

example:

team-gbs-app-microsoftproducts

or

team-gfi-zuer-groupfinance

 

similar for SharePoint Site collections

Hi @Domin007,

 

We don't organize our O365 Groups but we do block custom words from the naming policy. No prefix or suffix standards. Our users are self-service provisioning Groups via the O365 apps. 

 

I hope this helps.
