Beginning on April 8, 2024, members of inactive Microsoft 365 groups will receive email notifications directly from Microsoft.

Microsoft 365 groups let you choose a set of people you wish to collaborate with and easily set up a collection of resources for those people to share. Groups are used in Teams, Outlook, Viva Engage, and SharePoint.

The notifications are part of an effort to clean up inactive groups, and ensure that groups that are still needed have owners. The top five most active members in the group will be prompted to take ownership if the renewal of that group is necessary.

Learn more about Cornell's Microsoft 365 content retention and deletion policies, as well as group owner responsibilities, and how to keep a group active.
