  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. Group-Level VIEW ONLY Permissions

    While I'd like to see some more granular permissions in general, I would like to see at a minimum a VIEW ONLY option assigned to users in a Group / Plan.

    Right now everyone is a contributor and everyone can do everything, but there are lots of situations where we want to give situational awareness to certain users, but not let them edit group documents, or potentially delete things (not out of malice, but just unawareness).

    You already get at least the basic Viewer/Contributor model on most other services, like SharePoint team sites, Yammer groups, almost all of the project…

  5. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Allow users to edit their groups' photo while not allowing them to change their own photo

    If the SetPhotoEnabled OWA Mailbox policy is set to False, users are also not able to Change the photo of Office 365 Groups they created, which is a flawed design choice. They are however able to Delete the group photo, which is a bug. Please make a seperate "SetPhotoEnabled"setting for users and group and fix this bug.

  10. Provide guest members full access to group calendar

    Add the ability for Guest members to access the group calendar along with files and conversations. At this time you can only send invites to these members but they can not create events themselves or see the calendar.

    Thanks for the feedback! Can you provide more information about how you prefer guest policies to work and if you think allowing guests the same level of permissions as any other member is desirable? Additionally, would you like to control policies for specific guests or just have blanket policy for all guests? Please keep the feedback and votes coming! Thanks!

  11. 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.

  12. Support for multiple group calendars

    Current Office 365 Groups only support one group calendar. In many use cases this is not enough. Support for multiple group calendars within the same group should be supported

  13. URL to show Group Calendar view

    A distinct URL to display a group calendar view. Currently a URL will display the calendar alongside the users calendar but only if they are a member of the group, if the group is public the URL should display the calendar.

  16. 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?

  20. 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.
