Grouping for expansion?

Hey there! A friend and I just bought the story pack bundle with all three expansion packs. We were wondering which of the expansion packs can we do as a group. I know that KOTFE is 100% solo unless you call your friend to your instance which is only there to help you fight like a boss but not there to help with the story. Rise of the Hutt Cartel and Shadow of Revan is what we don't know. So what I am asking is, can we play Rise of the Hutt Cartel and Shadow of Revan as a group from beginning to the end? If not, does that mean that during the expansion, we can't help or even do the story together as a group expansion? PLZ HELP US!!

Ilum, Makeb (Rise of the Hutt Cartel) & Oricon, you can group for an all parties progress, Shadowo f Revan I am not sure about.
Just like everyone else, here is my friends code , if you sub or re-sub we both get rewarded.

There are wrinkles if you pick the same class as your friend, and distinct problems if you pick "incompatible" classes and want to do starter-world content together, but apart from that, all pre-KotFE content can be grouped for. (Indeed, Tactical- and Hard-mode flashpoints, all operations, and all Warzone/GSF PvP activity *must* be done in groups.)

"Incompatible" classes, in this context, are classes that don't start on the same starter world, so the best combinations are SI/SW (Korriban), BH/IA (Hutta), JC/JK (Tython), and Trooper/Smuggler (Ord Mantell).

If you both pick the same (base) class, you must both configure yourselves to allow class-story instance sharing (i.e. sharing the instance between multiple characters of the same class), otherwise you will not be allowed to enter the same class story instance. You must also accept doing every such instance twice, once for you and once for your friend. (This is unlike, say, GW2 Personal Story instances, where if you are both due to do the same instance, you can both get credit for it.)

So what you are saying is that Rise of The Hutt Cartel and Shadow of Revan can be played with a group but you have to play each part twice, like doing the normal game's main mission's phases.

Only for class story instances if you are both the same class

I didn't actually say that, but that, because of the admittedly limited consequences of dialogue choices, e.g. dark/light side, main class stories ("1-50" mode, Prologue and Chapters One to Three) count only for the instance owner. I would expect that all of RotHC, Forged Alliances, Shadow of Revan, and Rise of the Emperor would be the same, for the same reason.

Alternative interpretation: Any "{Class Name} Phase" or "Personal Phase" will count for the phase owner only, while anything that's a "Group Phase" will count for all participants. For owner-only phases, the owner is the first member of the group to enter the phase.

You can do Shadow of Revan and the like as a group IF you're not the same class. Otherwise you'll have to do it twice, but if all players are of a different class, it should work. Did for me.
