Office 365 - Manage/view Group Settings/Parameters

As an owner of a Group, you have the ability to manage many of the settings/parameters for the group. You will be able to:

  • View/add members
  • View/add owners
  • Modify GAL visibility
  • Add/remove allowed senders
  • Add/remove users or groups that can "send as" the group
  • Add/remove users or groups that can "send on behalf of" the group
  • Remove alternate addresses or change primary address
  • View - email address, type, creation time, timestamp enabled for advanced administration, description, visibility, membership hidden status, internal senders only setting


  • 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/Team client to add external members to the Group/Team.

Note: You must be the owner of the Group to manage it.
