Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Use contact lists, part of Outlook on the web Essential Training.
- I know some people appreciate contact folders.…I actually prefer to use two different types of tools…to organize people into groups.…The first would be creating what used to be called…distribution lists are now called contact lists,…sometimes called Outlook Groups,…although that's confusing nomenclature now.…With distribution lists, or contact lists,…I have my folks together in a way that I can then send…a message to the entire group at a time or grab…the entire group and put them into a meeting at one time.…
It's a container to hold contacts that already exist…so that I can refer to them by the container name.…The other option is to create a group…like the groups that we see here.…These groups are Office 365 groups and they're only…available if you're using Office 365.…If you create an Office 365 group, what you're really doing…is creating a collaboration space.…That space will have a place for documents.…It will have a calendar, all of the shared tools that…a group would want or a project team would want.…
