o365 Group email notification
no email notification to o365 group, if file shared from one drive for business
Make it possible to optionally send email notification when adding user to O365 group. Also make it possible to modify the email that is send.

Disabling the email notification that gets sent automatically when adding people to Groups within O365 is the only way groups can successfully be used to replace distribution lists.
I have Non-IT group owners (like admin assistants) that need functionality of a shared, self-managed distribution list.
We're no longer supporting public folders, so groups are the next best option. However, the admin assistants aren't on board, because they don't want the full functionality of the group and are worried about confusing users with the notification when adding them at group set-up.
The normal Share process does not send the link/invitation to members of the Group.It is necessary to use the Outlook button on the first Share box and enter the Group mail address. What is needed as a simple way to notify Group members that a document has been added/changed.A "Publish" button after selecting the file - enter message - Send (group mailbox) would be great. Example, think of a simple way to "Publish" the uploaded agenda for next weeks team meeting.
Currently you can't share OneDrive or SharePoint documents to a group even though there is no indication that it hasn't done it. Coupled with the fact that you no longer get copies of your own emails when you send to a group, there's no indication to the average user that the item hasn't been shared as they intend.
