  1. Disable email notification when adding members to an Office 365 Group

    I would like the ability to disable the email notification members receive when they are added to an O365 Group. We have the need to add a large number of users to a new O365 group and the auto-email will be confusing and disruptive to this group of people

  3. Restrict group description length to match AAD Connect

    Currently end-users can create a group through self-service (excellent!) which has a description that cannot be synchronized by AAD Connect group write-back into on-premises AD (bad).

    Group write back is currently in preview, but this needs to be resolved before general release.

    Example error:
    Target Attribute Value length exceeds max allowed size. Target Object:*** TargetAttribute:description: Value length 482 exceeds max allowed size of 448

  4. "Customize Guest Invite to O365 Groups"

    With guest option enabled in Groups, we are looking for option to customize the invite that goes out to external users (invited as guest) where we can provide URL for Usage guidelines. At present Usage Guidelines option is present in O365 Group created from Outlook but not when Office 365 Group is created from Teams, Power BI etc.

    We are looking for this option to be available in O365 Group across the board irrespective of how and using which application O365 Group is created.

  5. Make alerts work in private Groups

    Alerts don't work in private groups whereas in open Groups or SharePoint sites they work properly. So please make them work.

  8. Create multiple boards per plan in Planner

    For a project/plan, it would be useful to have a the ability to create several boards to divide up different tracks of work, or separate out a backlog or task inbox, or create a board for tasks that are Done to keep other boards focused. Also need the ability to move one tasks from board to board easily.

  9. Prevent users from adding hidden Distribution Lists to Teams.

    Right now, any user can create a new Team and add a hidden Distribution list to the team, this would include a hidden distribution list of all employees. Even though the distribution lists are hidden, they are showing up in the search result withinTeams. It seems as though Teams is not looking at the msexchhidefromaddresslists attribute even though it is set to TRUE.

  13. Planner users need more control over notification recipients

    Planner users should be able to choose the level of notifications sent out when carrying out updates etc. This would need some way of specifying team structure but should be practical. We stopped using Planner because my colleagues were constantly being bombarded with emails relating to peripheral items in the project. The should receive what is important and relevant to them, not everything. We should not have to resort to email filters to do this. Would the admin team send out an email to all staff when they received a new consignment of printer paper? They would send this to…

  14. Need ability to turn off Excel's May 2017 update called " Keep the Copy ". This is for Excel not de-selecting cells.

    Need ability to turn off Excel's May 2017 update called "Keep the Copy". This is for Excel not de-selecting cells. When you click in another cell, Excel does not de-select the current cells. Escape seems to be the only release key. This is confusing a lot of users.

  16. Option to embed microsoft teams into sharepoint

    Love microsift Teams, love the live app. But: it exists outside sharepoint (too much) ...
    the team comes from a team site but the conversations and documents do not revert back to sharepoint
    can we make it so that:
    - the documents tab in ms teams can be linked to a document library?
    - the conversations are also stored in sharepoint (as a new web part for a better more evolved discussion board?)

  17. Please make Dictate available in the Dutch language.

    We think Dictate in the Dutch language can really make work easier for our employees, especially those who are not working at a desk. There's 23 million people who speak Dutch as their first language.

  18. Ability to change invitations language from OneDrive

    Typically, users have the Office365 default language set to their native language and invitations to shared resources from OneDrive are sent in that language. It would be a good option to change the language of invitations to another universal language like English. At the moment, this can only be done by changing the language throughout the portal

  20. Integrate (Group) Meetings and Calendar in Desktop Teams Client

    In the desktop Teams client, I would like to have one unified Meetings and Calendar function for general groups/teams instances. Meetings are a limited tool, while Calendars offer more functionality. However, personal Outlook calendars serve a different function than general teams/groups-wide planning tools. An option to offer a calendar view in Teams, using Groups functionality would be very welcome.
