The Groups Tile

How to Use

When the tile is placed on the page, a user will need to authenticate into the tile, or all users can be given administrative access through the Manage Integrations setting and the Office 365 integration in Cloud.  Clicking on a group will cause the tile to show the email address, link to the group page, as well as a list of recent emails and documents that have been shared with the group.  Clicking on an item will load up the item in a new window, and clicking on the email will open the email client and clicking on an email or the arrow will take you to the groups page in Office Groups.

Note: Opening up a link to groups on mobile will instead take you to a page asking you to download the groups app, this is a known issue from Microsoft.
