Communicate with the right people
Use official groups to communicate with a team, region or entire company. Make sure that important updates get to the right people, and listen to feedback through comments and reactions on posts.
Mark as important
Pin important updates to the top of the News Feed, and send an email notification to guarantee that people see it.
Q&A posts let people ask questions and upvote their favourites so you can see and respond to whatever is top of mind.
Drafted an update for a global team? Make sure that it gets noticed by scheduling it to go live at a suitable time.
"Our COVID-19 Workplace group is the second most-followed group at the World Health Organization. It's become an easy-to-access channel for our staff around the world to watch the daily press briefings and find resources, while providing an open forum for staff to ask questions and receive instant feedback."
Use "action items" to make meetings more productive by assigning tasks or confirming next steps.
Make documents more discoverable by sharing files from OneDrive, SharePoint, Dropbox or Google Drive into any Workplace group.
Recognise a job well done using achievement posts to call out great work or celebrate a project milestone.
"70% of all WW's groups on Workplace are people around the world who never had the opportunity to work together. That's actually had positive business results."
Be more productive with external partners
Multi-company groups are a secure space to work with external partners or suppliers. With threaded comments and easy file sharing, you'll no longer need to use email to keep track of decisions.
Bring people together
Build culture by creating social groups for like-minded colleagues. Encourage people to discuss their hobbies, celebrate their identities and form new communities.
Communicate at your own pace
When you create a group with less than 250 people, you'll automatically create a matching Workplace Chat thread. Use the group for in-depth, structured discussions, then simply jump into Chat for urgent conversations or to make instant decisions.
It's easy to create a group
You can create as many groups as you like by clicking the Create Group button on desktop or navigating to the Groups tab on mobile. Follow the steps to name your group, choose your privacy setting and invite the right people.
