    Office 365 group classifications: Feature to restrict users from changing classification after the creation of the group

    Can you please add the functionality to restrict owners from changing group classification after they create the group? Users should be able to choose from classification options when they create the group (as they are now), but not after creating the group.

                          • Group Writeback: manage members and owners for Office 365 Groups

                            in the current state of the feature Group Writeback creates a representation of the corresponding Office 365 Group to the local AD.
                            Originally you cannot manage that groups properties in the local AD, as Azure ADConnect will undo your local changes and will not sync on-prem ADs changes back to Azure AD.
                            Now as Office 365 Groups are the fundament for Microsoft Teams, this should be changed to that workflow, if Group Writeback is enabled:
                            a. create the Office 365 Group (or Team) in Azure AD, setting up basic settings and initial owners/members

                                  • Ability to merge two Office 365 groups

                                    We have found that when swtiching from Google's G-suite to Office 365, it was easier to make a new group and start fresh. However, it would be very convenient and far less time consuming if we could merge the old group from when we had G-suite to the new group - in particular contacts and calendar events.

                                      • cross tenant shared mailbox

                                        Given Company A and Company B each having a O365 tenant and they would like to work closed together on Mail. So please allow users from A to be added to B's shared mailboxes. This would allow multiple benefits - including more cross-company collaboration with the Business features, while maintaining security. In addition, company A & B could share a internet mail domain.
