Manage Microsoft Stream groups as an admin

If your organization has an Office 365 subscription, groups in Microsoft Stream are built using Office 365 Groups. When you make a group in Microsoft Stream it creates a new Office 365 Group that can be used across Office 365, giving the group an email address, calendar, site, etc. If you already use Office 365 Groups in your organization, you can start using those groups in Microsoft Stream right away.

  • If you are an owner of a group, you can make changes to the group directly in Stream.

  • If you are an Office 365 Global Admin or Exchange Admin, you can't make changes to the group in Stream, but you can make changes to groups by using the Office 365 admin center or the Azure portal.

  • Stream admins get access to other content in Stream, but management of groups can only be done by Office 365 Global Admins and Exchange Admins.

  1. In Stream, go to Settings > Admin settings.
