  • If you want the members of the Group hidden but still want the Group to be visible within the GAL, the Group must be created by our technical team. If the Group already exists, the members cannot be hidden - there is no need to perform this action if the Group is hidden in the GAL.
  • External addresses, ones that are not hosted within our Office 365 tenant, cannot be added via this tool. You must use Outlook/Teams client to add external members to the Group/Team.
  • When adding a list of members, you can use any combination of spaces, new lines, commas, semi-colons, tabs to separate the members you want to add. We recommend using the complete email address of the account you are adding -,,
