Users can use groups to more easily:
- Communicate and collaborate with groups of people. For example, groups can be useful for departments, project teams, classes, office locations, special-interest groups, and more.
- Manage access to your documents, sites, videos, and calendars. Uses can share their content with groups instead of entering individual addresses. With a group, they can add or remove members once, and the changes are immediately applied to all the Google documents, sites, videos, and calendars that they shared with that group.
- Manage their group memberships, so they can tailor email communications to their needs, without having to make requests to your IT department.
- Create their own groups, so they can further customize their communications -- without the need to contact your IT staff. You can give this privilege to users and remove it at any time. If you let users create their own groups, they can managed their groups to control who can join, send messages, invite members, view members, and view discussion archives.
Coaches, Volunteers and Communities can improve communications among their community by creating
groups for their program, sport or subject interest. Community members in turn can use groups to reach other members, athletes, schools, sports teams or clubs.
