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
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!

Applying Policy on Teams groups which are O365 Type is very important to have nested features

Are we nearly there yet? Getting some form of nesting to work is not that hard, it's when all the complexity of the other services are considered. Is there no way of setting up an Office 365 group to at least receive copies of emails sent to the parent group even if not with full membership of each service that the Office 365 group might confer on its members?
As others have said the default (and auto-conversions?) seem to railroad people towards 365 groups and they only find out later they don't work in the same way they used to and they can't use a fundamental Exchange/AD management technique.
Please enable this feature
Yes please make it possible to nest groups inside of other groups.

This is really still not a thing? How on earth are we supposed to manage a complex organization without the ability to nest.

When can we expect this feature?
Yes please to this enablement. Our Use Case is sharing Project Roadmaps with >7,600 E5 users (when that enablement arrives this month).
Please consider that in other to provide a smooth migration from hybrid environments to a full cloud environment, our old distribution lists being converted to O365 groups (soon to be M365 groups).
Delaying the option of nesting both security and office (including dynamic groups), will only delay and frustrate companies trying to become fully cloud environments.
Enable this fonction, please
I'm not sure if this was "fixed" so would appreciate to know if what I am seeing has existed or is new.
If I go in to Outlook web to create a distribution list, I can search and add the email from an Office 365 group to a distro list. No PowerShell, just basic Outlook for web.
So standard distro list nests and Office 365 group so I can add/remove users easily via the Group. I don't know how responsive it is if I add/remove users to the group and some people in the company have concerns this will not work. Has anyone else tried this?

The inability to nest groups is a major impediment to fully replacing our legacy systems. Organizing and aggregating users and groups is fundamental to maintaining good system controls.
C'mon, we should be able to add O365 groups to mail-enabled security groups or DLs. Blows my mind this is not yet implemented despite numerous requests.
We have an "All Staff" mail-enabled security group, and it's members are O365 groups for each of our physical locations. All users belong dynamically to their respective location/O365 group. We've grown over the years and added several new locations, which now don't get All Staff emails because their location groups don't belong to the "All Staff" group.Yes there is a way to do this with Powershell, but we shouldn't need to do this and I have very little experience with PS.

This is really important to be able to manage groups sensibly and reduce duplicated work and people being missed etc.
