  1. 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.

  3. Add security groups to Office 365 groups

    I need a way of making security groups part of an Office 365 group. I want to be able to add users to a security group and then they are automatically a member of a Office 365 group.

    Dynamic group membership only appears to work for user attribute values and not their group membership.

  5. Export Teams Conversation History

    Provide standard users the ability to export Teams chat history similar to how Skype kept them in Conversation History within Exchange. This would be beneficial for project and support calls to to retain the history in documentation outside of Teams.

  6. Allow the "All Group Calendars" calendar group to be moved in Outlook for Windows

    In the Outlook desktop client for Windows, all other calendar groups can be moved up or down depending on user preference. The "All Group Calendars" group cannot be moved. This is causing grief for some departments as we move them from old-fashioned shared calendars over to O365 groups. Please make it so that this calendar group can also be moved up or down.

  7. Remove meeting room from the location field if the room declines the meeting

    If a user creates a meeting and invites a room that is not available (or they are not authorised to book) then the meeting room stays in the location field. As attendees see the declined room they believe that is where the meeting is happening and report that the meeting room has been double-booked. The room has not been double booked, it's just not clear to the attendees that the room declined the invite.

  11. Manually set permissions for "Everyone except external users" for modern group permissions in SharePoint O365 don't stick!

    Unexpected and buggy behavior encountered when permissions are manually set using modern group permissions in a SharePoint site. If you manually assign "Everyone except external users" with "Read" access in a "Private group" SharePoint team site it will remain with those permissions until you make a change in Teams or SharePoint such as adding/removing a member. It appears that making a change in Teams or SharePoint resets default "Private group" permissions for the site and removes "Everyone except external users" from the Visitors group.

    Similarly, If you manually set "Everyone except external users" with Read permissions in the Visitors group…

  12. SharePoint: Have the option to INHERIT THE PARENT FOLDER PERMISSION or CREATE A UNIQUE PERMISSION every time a new sub-folder is created

    It would be good if this option is available right DURING THE CREATION of the sub-folder so it would be easier for users to manage the permissions.

  13. Update group metrics of the group that is hidden from the address book

    If the group is hidden from the address book, the group metrics won’t be updated. So, it would be great that the group metrics could be updated even if the group is hidden.

  14. Add teams group to office 365 groups or DL list

    Adding Teams groups to office 365 groups or DL list helps manage the Teams groups on its own, having this feature will allow users to set rules for these groups only instead of having to add the users one by one to a office 365 groups.

  17. Search field in Distribution Lists (Contact Groups)

    Please introduce a SEARCH field in the Distribution Lists (Contact Groups). It would be vital, if you would have a DL of 1000 members and you want to search for one without scrolling down the list!

  18. Allow OWA "add file" attachment direct from more than just the default "Documents" SPO Document Library

    If you want to add an attachment in OWA, you can go to "Browse cloud locations". There are Groups, where you find your SharePoint Sites. But they do just display the default "Documents" document library.

    If you work with SharePoint Online as file server, you definitely have more document libraries. Therefore it is required that they are browsable so that you are able to add documents from them.

  20. Enable adding multiple calendars for Office 365 Group

    We would like to add multiple calendars for Office 365 Group like user mailbox.
    If possible, it would be great if we could add them in both Outlook on the web and Outlook client.
