  2. Expiration Policy Activity For Planner, Power BI, Stream, Project

    The expiration policy will treat a group is active based on three activities only: SharePoint, Outlook, Teams. How about those activities in Power BI, Planner, Project and Stream? A Office 365 Group can be used without Teams enabled and used for those 4 services only. The group owner will receive the expiration notification email (the email is not mentioning these services at all) and may just delete the group (even it is actively in used in that 4 services). Please include the expiration policy for those activity used in that 4 services.

  4. Option to hide group management from outlook 2016

    Would be good to have an option to on/off group management in outlook / OWA. This way companies can use their existing tools / process to manage groups via central tool and not via outlook

  5. Support "Mark as Read" in Groups in Outlook 2016

    Please support "Mark as Read" and "Mark as Unread" in Groups in Outlook 2016. This is not possible and it collides with my default Outlook settings.

  7. Group OneDrive default folder for Office 365 Planner uploaded attachments

    Give admins the opportunity to set the default folder within the Group OneDrive where all the uploaded attachments from Office 365 Planner will be saved. Now, all the files go to the root folder - they are unsorted and disorganized (their movement to another folder causes error 404).

  9. Recover / restore deleted files Office 365 groups

    There are similar threads about restoring deleted Office groups, but this suggestion is about deleted files in a Office 365 group.
    As I understand it a deleted file is only visible in the recycle bin belonging to the user that actually deleted the file. Only the user who deleted the file will be able to recover/restore the file.
    I would like the Office 365 groups recycle bin to function as a shared "folder" among the group members, or - at least - with the group owner. Someone else than the user that deleted the file should be able to recover/restore…

  10. Group Admins should be able to Subscribe/Unsubscribe existing members

  11. Group Calendar disable default notifications

    Our office wished to implement a vacation calendar that would house every employees vacation schedules. However, we would like to disable the automatic notification every member of the group gets when someone adds their vacation/meeting time. Apparently this was implemented earlier, as noted here:

    We shipped the ability to add an appointment that is only shown in the groups calendar. The minimum build to get this feature is 16.0.8429.1000, and the flight is now rolling out to Insiders fast, and will rollout to the other channels in the regular cadence over the next few months.

  12. Open Groups calendars in the default calendar app (on smartphone, tablet, etc.)

    Currently you cannot see a groups calendar on a smartphones default calendar app. With all the people doing lots of email and scheduling tasks on their phone or tablet, it should be basic functionality to see the groups calendars there next to the personal calendars. How can you schedule an appointment if you only have half of the information or need to switch between your personal calendar in the calendar app and group calendar in the groups app?

  13. Prevent adding "Everyone except externals" to the Owner group

    It should not be possible to intentionally or unintentionally add "Everyone except externals" to the Owners. Imagine this scenario:
    - Create a Group and set the Privacy settings to Public
    - You later determine the Privacy should be Private
    - Open the Site Permissions and then attempt to remove "Everyone" but accidentally click "Full control", the option just above "Remove"
    - "Everyone" disappears from Site members so you think your site is secure
    - To be sure, you now open Site information and change the Privacy settings to "Private"

    In this scenario, you now have a "Private" site with "Everyone"…

  15. Option to set "Browse Library" as default view for files

    All of our Groups files view has been switched to the "New Experience" view for files (aka "Group Files"). Now, users just see a bunch of files, and no folders. To see and manage folders they have to select "Browse Library".

    This is terribly confusing to users. We need the following 2 options

    1) ability for users Group Owners to set the view as desired

    2) Ability for system admins to PERMANENTLY (not temporarily until the Tenant Space is forced to upgrade) disable this new view so users can continue to use and manage their folders.

    This new view is…

  16. Ability to move conversations/emails from one Office 365 Group to another.

    Sometimes we need to delete a Group and create a new more relevant group. Can move OneDrive and OneNote content easily enough to the new Group. However, cannot find a way to move the Group conversation (email) - would like to retain this in the new Group for historical reasons.

  17. Automatically List Groups by Unread Notifications

    When you have 10+ Groups its sometimes easy to miss Notificaitons/Conversations. Make OWA so that it Automatically orders the groups by unread notifcations.

  18. Allow members to copy files to document library with content approval enabled

    Currently in an Office 365 Group, we have 2 libraries:
    1 working library
    1 publishing library with content approval turned on.

    Up until several weeks ago users with edit permissions in the publishing library were able to copy files from the working library into the publishing library. Now they no longer have the permission to do that.
    This is a change that has seriously affected our implementation and we desperately need this ability back.
    It is not logical that a user with edit permissions should not be able to copy a document from one library to another.
    Please fix this!
