A cyberist created this article using the patented Delta Method by modernizing a typical approach.
Microsoft 365 Groups are the preferred membership service to automatically assign permissions for collections of shared resources for user collaboration including at minimum a SharePoint Team Site, Group Mailbox, and optional Team.
Adding, editing, or deleting a Microsoft 365 Group adds, edits, or deletes the related shared resources (unlike Azure Security Groups that simply assign permissions to selected Azure users or devices).
For this reason, it’s important to plan for naming conflicts when adding and use caution to prevent data loss when editing or deleting.
As a Group member, browse to the SharePoint site in a browser and verify the Group is displayed in Outlook. Optionally verify access to the Team and post a test comment or upload a file in Microsoft Teams
