Organizing your resources.
In Office 365 you can create groups and assign users, rooms and equipment (commonly referred to here as items) to it. If you have more than just a few items, we suggest to use the Office 365 group feature to organize your items and locations. In DatabeatOMNI these groups are used to select which to create one or more doorsigns for. If you have many items you can create Office Groups to access only the items you want to.
