UPDATE: Put Google Groups to Work for You
Google Groups, a tool for a team of users to quickly collaborate with one another either via email, or any of Google's various applications, is available with Google Apps for the University of Minnesota, effective Oct. 1.
Google Groups is all about helping users connect with people, access information, and communicate effectively over email and on the web. With members of your team all in the same group, Google Groups makes it easy for sharing things like Google Calendars and Docs with one another.
Who’s eligible for Google Groups?
University of Minnesota faculty, staff, and students, may request a Google Group for themselves, or for their unit or organization. Google Groups request forms, including instructions, are available on the University's Google support website.
