From collaborating on projects across your organization to growing your company culture, everything on Workplace starts with a Group.
Make announcements and start conversations in a secure, shared space
Use Workplace Groups to communicate with specific teams, regions or your whole company. And because you can create lots of different types of posts when you’re posting into a Group, they’re a super flexible feature for all kinds of company comms.
Pin important updates to the top of your News Feed, and send an email notification to make sure that people see it.
Q&A posts let people ask questions and upvote their favorite posts, so you can see and respond to whatever is top of mind.
Drafted an update for a global team? Make sure that it gets noticed by scheduling it to go live at a suitable time.
Use Action Items to make meetings more productive by assigning tasks or confirming next steps.
Make documents more discoverable by sharing files from OneDrive, SharePoint, Dropbox or Google Drive into any Workplace group.
Recognize a job well done by using achievement posts to highlight great work or celebrate a project milestone.
Communicate important news to the right people on Workplace Groups
Build a better employee experience with Workplace Groups by making it easy for your teams to grow communities and collaborate across projects. According to the 2022 Forrester Total Economic Impact™ Study, companies saw 32% more ideas shared to improve products, services and processes by using Workplace features like Groups.
Bring people together
Build culture by creating social groups for like-minded colleagues. Encourage people to discuss their hobbies, celebrate their identities and form new communities.
Communicate at your own pace
Create a chat group for in-depth discussions or jump into a chat for urgent conversations and instant decisions.
It's easy to create a group
Create as many groups as you like, name your group, choose your privacy setting and invite whoever you want.
You can unfollow a group by clicking on the ellipsis icon below the group’s cover photo, then clicking ‘Unfollow’. If you don’t want to be in a group, you can leave by clicking the ellipsis and selecting ‘Leave Group’, and then ‘Leave Group’ again to confirm. When you leave a group you’re an admin of, other group members will be offered the admin role. Find out more information in the Help Center.
Prioritize groups by pinning them so that they appear underneath ‘Shortcuts’. From your News Feed, click on your group in the left panel, then select the ‘Follow’ option in the ellipsis, and choose ‘Prioritize’. This group will now be listed under ‘Prioritized’ groups in your left panel. You can also click on the ellipsis to choose ‘Pin Group’ to add it to your Shortcuts.

You can add coworkers to a group individually, or import a list. You can invite up to 2000 coworkers at a time and you can add them to a group by sending them an invite link. To do this, first click ‘Add People’, copy the link next to ‘Share a group invite link’ and share it with your coworkers. Once you add them, they will be able to see and comment on posts made to the group. Follow these detailed instructions to add coworkers to a group.
"Our departments created individual groups to reduce emails for better communication. Now, all team members have access to group and event agendas to ensure they are well-informed."
