Requirements such as eligible Office 365 account and Office 365 experience
- [Instructor] Just before starting this course, here's what you need to know. Firstly, Office 365 Groups is available to most, but not all, Office 365 subscribers. Only certain plans, at least as of the date of this recording, offer access to Groups. They are E-1 to E4, A1 to A4, and G1 to G4, plus, Business Essentials, Business Premium, Small Business Premium, Midsize Business plans, as well as the Kiosk plan. So, basically, you'll know if you have Office 365 Group access if you go to your Outlook Web app, and look down the left hand side at your resources, and see Groups there in your resource tree.
We'll what that looks like later on in this course. If you already have some experience and familiarity with Office 365 in general, you'll find it much easier to follow along in this course.
