We use Windows 2012 domain controllers on our network.

We have moved to 0365 and all our users and security groups sync from On-Prem Active Directory to 0365.

We are going to use SharePoint online that come with 0365.

I have been told that I need to have the following three groups.
All Student
All Teachers
All Staff

On our AD already we have All Student and All Teachers group, and both groups are in the Global security group.

I have an ALL Staff  group and this group is an Universal security group, which is used for sending email for ALL Staff.

For assigning permissions on SharePoint from All Staff, can I use this universal security group OR do I need to create another Global security group called “ALL STAFF”

Any help much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
