Participating in a Google Group

Participating in a Google Group

Google Groups is a feature of Google Apps that makes it easy to communicate and collaborate with groups of people—such as project teams, departments, office locations, and special-interest groups. There are multiple group types:

  • An open group is configured to grant you immediate membership.
  • A restricted group requires approval from an administrator before you are added to a group.
  • A private group requires you to click on a link to request membership from the owner.
