  1. Convert Shared Mailbox to Office 365 Group

    There should be an option to convert a shared mailbox to an office 365 group especially since the Office 365 Group is the newer better version of the Shared mailbox and there is no way to convert.

  2. Planner task to appears in Outlook Desktop Client

    It would be nice if the Tasks created in the planner using O365 groups would appear under the 'task' section of outlook.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for this request. We are rolling out the links to planner boards for groups in Outlook desktop from the group card, so that should help get to the planner task list.
    This request seems to be asking for the Outlook desktop tasks list to also show planner tasks. Can you help us understand the use cases and details on the actions you expect to perform with planner tasks in Outlook?

    Thanks.

  4. Merge the two Office 365 Groups

    We have an increasing request about mage O365 group (most typicality Planner group in to other existing group that is more actively using for file share.

    User start the group in mind that using some specific feature of O365 and later find out two or three slimier group exist and want to merge into.

    I would like to have feature support ted at least by the tenant global administrator or better with group's own administrator, if the person has admin role in both group.

    This will help tidy up the ever growing number of groups and better use by end…

  7. sort the groups

    I think it would be necessary to sort the groups in alphabetical order or in an order defined by the user. We should also see to consolidate groups or groups by section as it can be done with users that we are in a group.

  8. Shared Contacts

    I was hoping that switching to O365 Groups would allow our small team to share contact information. Sadly it seems only Files and Calendars are an option.

    I would very much like to have a "shared contacts" area within the group - these should be editable by the group owner(s) and be available for viewing on the Groups mobile app as well as from within Outlook.

  9. allow add group to another group

    Every time I create a new group I only have the option to click check boxes for individual users to add them to the group. I would like to be able to add groups as members. We have state, office, department groups. It would be nice to just add them as a member of a new group/team...

    Thanks for posting. The updated Office 365 Admin portal (in preview) includes a Groups center for managing group properties – name, description, membership, privacy type, lifecycle, etc. Reports on usage will also be released in the Office 365 reports center this summer. What isn’t addressed in the preview portal?

  13. We very much need O365 to support nested O365 groups.

    It will reduce the no. of groups to be created in the org as well as will reduce the complexity of adding 100 of users manually to O365 groups.

  14. Office365 Video

    The uploading video icon is very retro and needs to include the normal info of file size speed and estimated time etc especially as video large files. Can I resume upload if if stopped for some reason?

  15. No more access to edit group's members by user

    Since webmail's options have changed, a user can't change anymore the group's members that he owns

    Why is it not possible anymore ?
    It was very important to myself.

    Thanks
