As you know, sometime ago Microsoft has introduced Office 365 Groups as new collaborative services.

You can now define on SharePoint Online Administration portal if an Office 365 or a classic SharePoint site can be created.

 

This administrative option is available from the SPO administration portal, below the Settings section under the Site Creation option

  • A site with an Office 365 group or a classic site
  • A site with an Office 365 group – will work only if the user has the permission to create an Office 365 Groups
  • A classic site – Office 365 Groups can still be created from other location if the user has the permission to do so
