Allow conversion of distribution groups into security groups
It would be beneficial to provide an easy way to convert a pre-existing distribution group into a security group or vice versa without having to recreate the entire group again. Can you add a simple way to change the type of an existing group?

Can we collect and combine the following user voices into 1 for tracking and visibility. There are probably more of the same, but I found these in a quick search:
We need the function very much, so badly. Otherwise we have to delete more than 1,000 distribution lists and create the same number of Security groups to let them take over the same e-mail adress as existing distribution lists have.
This would be great if implemented. When a new team adopts SharePoint, it would be obvious they would want their team DL to be resolved in SharePoint.

In addition, with the release of Office 365 Groups, it would be handy if Distribution Lists could be converted to Office 365 Groups as well.
This would be a great addition to groups
This is very much needed indeed for fully utilising Sites and OneDrive for Business permission!
