  4. Ability to disable external sharing by default for newly created Office 365 Groups

    Currently if external sharing is enabled at the tenant level, new Office 365 Groups also have external sharing enabled by default. If an organization only wants to allow external sharing for a limited number of Office 365 Groups, but still allow any user to create a new Office 365 Group, IT is required to manually disable external sharing on every new group that is created which is not feasible.

  5. Expire Groups based on inactivity

    Currently group expiration is based on an renewal date, example: require the owner to renew every 6 months.
    However, the risk is if the owner doesn't see the email(s) (they get three) then the group could be removed even if there is legitimate group activity going on.
    We would like the group expiration to be influenced by actual group activity, so if you see the email alias associated with a group actively being used then do not delete the group, but instead send the owner an email saying "are you still using this? We won't delete it, but we just…

    Group expiry has shipped to General Availability, along with the ability to automatically renew groups based on activity. Please reference this documentation for more details. Thanks for all the feedback!

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/users-groups-roles/groups-lifecycle#:~:text=Groups%20with%20user%20activities%20are%20automatically%20renewed%20as,days%20by%20the%20group%20owners%20or%20the%20administrator.

  6. Provide each Office 365 Group's OneDrive with at least 1 TB of storage per Group

    With each OneDrive for Business employees getting 5 TB by default wouldn't it make sense to help embrace coloration using o365 Group's OneDrive with similar space? I am under the impression that it currently coults again Sharepoint limits on 1TB + only 500 MB per employee and is all pooled.

  8. Publish documentation on admin roles of the Unified Group

    We're trying to change the default smtp address of a Unified Group. We would expect our Exchange admins to be able to manage this. When following this documentation, https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt432940(v=exchg.160).aspx, we discover that the admin must be in the following role groups:

    Organization Management
    Recipient Management
    Id Admin
    Service_account

    After this failed, we took the case to Office 365 support. There they instructed us that this must be done by someone with Global Administrator role. The only documentation for this reality is located here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-an-Office-365-group-in-the-admin-center-74a1ef8b-3844-4d08-9980-9f8f7a36000f

    This article makes the following general statement. "While users can create an Office 365 group…

  9. Selectivly invite attendees to Group calendar event

    We need the ability to add events to a Group calendar where only selected people are invited and notified.

    The current ability to create Group calendar appointments is a step forward but not good enough. As soon as someone is invited, it changes from an appointment to an event that then sends a notification to all group members – whether subscribed to the Group or not!

    DESIRED FUNCTIONALITY
    - Ability to deselect Group members from a Group calendar event
    - Ability to add invitees to event where only invitees are notified – either group members or non-group individuals
    - Maintain…

  11. Enable Group calendars in Outlook for iOS

    I really hope the Outlook Groups app is just a temporary solution. It's completely unusable and a terrible UI with regards to calendaring. No week or month view, no ability to see your personal calendar at the same time to check for availability or conflicts. We have many users who live on their iPhones throughout the day with little or no access to the desktop apps. Please add Group calendars directly to Outlook for iOS.

  13. Ability to toggle External Sharing for an Office365 Group (and perhaps based on Classification)

    Ability to toggle External Sharing for an Office365 Group (and perhaps based on Classification)
    With Groups you can set Sharing with External from a Tenant perspective but there are no direct end-user controls to allow or disallow external sharing per group.
    Owners should be able to enable/disable the ability for the group to be shared with external.
    Building upon this though;
    Recently the Classification feature has been introduced to Groups and my second recommendation or feature wish would be to link the ability to share a Group with external based on the classification.
    E.g. :
    - If classification is: "Internal"…

  15. Group SharePoint site URLs

    With the onboarding of Teams, there are some groups out there that have changed their Group Name. While as a Global Admin I know I can successfully change the display name and email address of said group via powershell, but there doesn't seem to be a way to change the SharePointSiteURL, SharePointDocumentsURL & SharePointNotebookURL of the group.

    This means that the only way for a Group to have the URL of their choice is by recreating it with the new name, which wipes out all the content of their current group. We should have a way to change the SharePoint…

    Both the email address and the SharePoint site URL associated with a Microsoft 365 Group (formerly Office 365 Group) can now be changed.

    For the email address, the primary email address can be retained and secondary email addresses can be added, or the primary email address can be released and replaced by a new primary email address.

    For the SharePoint site URL, the site name and site URL associated with the Microsoft 365 Group can be changed via the SharePoint Admin Center.

  18. Option to create a calendar event that only appears on the group Calendar.

    When a person belongs to several groups, the personal calendar becomes unmanageable. Weeding through meetings and appointments that a person may not need to attend or see is time consuming and frustrating.

    Adding an optional appointment type that stays on the group calendar only, would eliminate 90% of the shared calendars we have, keep the personal calendar manageable, and more importantly, keep the information all in one area.

    One Calendar, that is multi-functional.

  19. External Address can't be added to Office 365 Group if it's in GAL

    We have came across to this issue and found that we cannot add any External Address in Office 365 as Guest if it's already in GAL. We have UGAL setup which sync contacts from different Tenants due which we are not able to Add other Tenant Email Address as Guest. Also we don't get option to Add Mail Contacts in Office 365 Groups as normal Member it only shows Mailbox lists. I understand that this is a Limitation of Office 365 Group. Kindly Look into this and fix this.

  20. Include ability to add an external email address that is associated with a mail contact to a modern group

    Currently, we can add eternal email addresses to a modern group successfully. However, it will fail fi that external email address is found in the address book as a mail contact. We have over 30,000 of these external contacts in our address book that will fail if tried. Try something like testuser1@live.com and it succeeds.
