Office 365 (Apple iCal/Calendar) - Modify Groups

Best Effort Support Only

This document contains instructions on using a non-Microsoft email client, such as Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Microsoft does not recommend these clients for use with Office 365, and there are often significant limitations in client functionality as a result.

Because of this, the DoIT Help Desk is only able to offer best effort support for these clients, and certain issues may require the use of a Microsoft client in order to be resolved. For more information on Office 365 client support, please see: Office 365 - Which clients/protocols will be supported?.

This document explains how to modify a group in Apple iCal (Mac OS 10.5-7) or Calendar (Mac OS 10.8-9).

Modify Groups

To modify a group in the Address Book (Mac OS 10.5-7) or Contacts (Mac OS 10.8-9) application:

  • Open the Address Book or Contacts application. You can do this by selecting Window from the menu bar, then Address Book or Contacts. Alternatively, click on the Applications folder from the dock and click on Contacts.
  • Select the group in the left-side list of address books, groups, and directories.

    On My Mac

  • Select any entry on the right and press the Backspace or Delete keys. A window will drop down asking to confirm whether to Delete from Group or Delete from address book. Choose the appropriate option.

    Confirm Delete Contact

  • To modify a group name, slow click on it on the left side of the Address Book or Contacts window. When Edit Mode enables, modify the name.

    Rename Group

NOTE The Edit Distribution List option you see if you CTRL-click or Right-click is NOT related to the group membership or the group name. It is related to attributes for the individual address entries in the group. If members of a group have multiple addresses (email or street) or phone numbers, you can select which address or phone number to use when sending a message to that group or when printing contact information. You can manage addresses for individual members of the group, or choose a type of address to use for all members of the group.
