  1. Add security groups to Office 365 groups

    I need a way of making security groups part of an Office 365 group. I want to be able to add users to a security group and then they are automatically a member of a Office 365 group.

    Dynamic group membership only appears to work for user attribute values and not their group membership.

    Thanks to everyone for your feedback and votes on this item. We’re working through a couple of options and hope to have more information shortly. It’s a very difficult problem to solve since group membership is consumed across many different aspects of Microsoft 365. Thanks for your patience and keep the feedback coming!

  2. Be able to Nest Groups like Distribution Groups

    Be able to Nest Groups like Distribution Groups. I decided to convert a lot of our team DGs to O365 groups without realizing I wouldn't be able to nest them

  3. Calendar permissions

    Please make it possible to set Calendar permissions to read only so that it's possible to have a group calendar that can only be edited by selected members of the group.

  4. View members of group in Outlook for Mac

    Distribution Lists and Outlook 365 Groups are still handled differently by Outlook for Mac. One example is that you can view the membership of a distribution list but you cannot view the membership of a group.

  6. It should be possible to not get ANY email from the group.

    Since the group is integrated in outlook next to your Inbox, I (and my colleagues) want to keep everything that's been said in the group, inside the group.

    As soon as someone replies to a message you posted in the group, you start receiving those replies in your inbox, but the answer is also inside the group, and again my mailbox overflows. If the conversation only stays in the group, the context would be clear immediately.

    Currently there seems to be no way to set preferences on when you want to be informed by email (for example on reply, when…

  7. Allow people to share a link to a public group as a way of promoting it within the organization

    To allow users to click a url to be able to visit a public group page to be able to join it would be fantastic!

    Good idea! We plan to address this by giving owners the ability to share a link to join the group. If you want to share a link to a public group’s conversations today, you can just copy the link to the group’s email conversations from the browser address bar.

  8. Integrate Groups Calendar with Outlook App Android

    I would love to have a central calendar Administration Tool such as Outlook for example. I would appreciate to be enabled to administer all my calendars with only one App. Outlook App would be fine for this.

  9. Nominate a new owner

    In an instance where a Group only has 1 owner, but that owner leaves the company the Group becomes somewhat orphaned. Please add a more automated way to select a new owner such as allowing current members to nominate a new owner.

  10. Require O365 Groups to have more than one owner at creation time

    To avoid the condition where an O365 Group becomes "orphaned" when the Owner leaves the company, apps that create O365 Groups should require that the creator add at least a second owner to the Group. This will prevent expiration/renewal notices from being sent to an Admin account, and increase the odds that there will be an Owner to respond and renew the group.

  11. group creation on Onedrive

    The creation of groups in Onedrive must comply with the same naming rules established for Exchange.
    In general all groups should comply

    It is confusing to establish rules and to appear groups that do not meet them.
