Office 365 Groups: Changing a group to Private


The default option for Office 365 groups is to make them public.  A public group is accessible by all SUNY New Paltz faculty and staff with an Office 365 account, and as of 2017 (date to be determined) all students will be on Office 365 and will thus have access as well.  

You may want to have your group public.  If so, you can ignore this article.  If you don't want your group public and it currently is, here is how to adjust the permissions.

Making a group private

  1. Open the group you want to adjust
  2. Click the arrow at the top right as shown in the image below, then choose Edit Group.
  3. Change the Privacy section from "Public" to "Private", and click Save at the top of this section
