  1. Option to set rights to a group calendar

    Please add the possibility to set user rights to the Office365 Group calender, so it will be possible to hide the calendar for some or all users and make is read-only too.

      • EXO Dynamic Distribution Group shold be able to use wildcard as 1st character in Set-DynamicDistributionGroup -RecipientFilter

        when set up a DDG in cloud-based environments, we can't use a wildcard as the first character as we did on-premise. For example, Sales* is allowed, but *Sales isn't allowed. Wildcards are valid only at the end for cloud-based environments and only at the front or back of words for on-prem environments, this is very in-user-friendly

        • Prevent users to following Office 365 Groups (Following In Inbox) - Without admin control

          My Office 365 Groups also working like distribution mode and these groups receiving lot of mail from external domains everyday.
          Lot of company staff would like following groups and manage their mail from inbox like traditional mode. But this situation overloading their mailbox size.
          I would like prevent users to follow (subscribing ) any group without admin control.

          • Show all groups User is part of within OneDrive Section

            There should be a section within OneDrive that says "Groups" within that it should show all the groups a user is in. The user can decided what group documents they want to download using the Files on demand feature. This would make it easier for users to know about the groups without having to sync each individual group. We have a lot of instructors that are not so technologically literate and this feature would make it easier for them to remember what they have access to and how to get the documents as this is a similar feature to Google…

            • Prevent Unsubscribe by User

              Would love the feature to have an Global Admin prevent a user from unsubscribing to an Office 365 group. This would be nice for groups that require all people in the company.

              If users had the ability to unsubscribe from critical groups (usually by accident especially when the link is in all the emails), then it would defeat the purpose of the group.

              Thanks!

              • Control de permisos para ver los miembros de una lista de distribucion

                Cuando añadimos una lista de distribución a un mensaje nuevo en Outlook, si pulsamos sobre el botón derecho, nos muestra una opción que es 'desplegar lista de distribución'
                Creo que seria conveniente el poder controlar quien puede desplegar y ver los miembros de una lista de distribución, por seguridad y privacidad.
                Si se pueden controlar quien puede enviar a una lista de distribución, si no se controla el despliegue de la misma, todos los usuarios pueden ver y utilizar las listas de distribución.

                  • Alphabetically sorting of Groups in Outlook

                    Alphabetically sorting is fundamental in the entire structuure in Microsoft. Why is it not possible to sort Groups aplhabetically in Outlook?
                    Groups are sorted alphabetically in the Admin center, why cannot the group members have the same view?

                    • distribution group reject permissions exchange online admin WEB GUI issue

                      In active directory / exchange the ability to set DL group attribute permissions to REJECT (unAuthOrig[users],dlMemRejectPerms[groups] specific users / groups exists, however this feature does not exist in the web management of exchange online. The settings are synced from active directory or exchange, but exchange online doesn't support the ability to create DL's with the ability to reject specific users or groups and it also cannot display the synced attribute data mentioned above.

                      It would be helpful for customers if exchange online admin management of groups supported the ability to see the synced rejected permissions of users and groups to…

                      • O365 Group members that are external guests that don't yet have Microsoft Accounts aren't prompted to create one on the site's logon page.

                        The logon page when you visit an O365 group doesn't have the "No account? Create one!" link to allow someone who was added as a member of an O365 Group to create a Microsoft Account anymore. This directly affects External Guests who don't have Microsoft Accounts. There is no visible link for them to create one. They don't know what to do as it's just prompting them to logon.

                          • Provide ability to merge Personal account with School account

                            I am new to the Office365 environment. Several months ago, I signed for a 365 Personal subscription. I have really enjoyed it, and have developed a great appreciation for OneNote.

                            However, our school integrated the paid version of Office365 for Education three weeks ago. Now I have two OneNotes, two Outlooks, etc. Is there a way where I can merge my personal into the school version, but still have my personal notes private for me?

                            It would be great to have a merge tool.

                                      • there is problem with creating office365 group from outlook , it uses only default domain even we have other domains inside tenant !

                                        there is problem with creating office365 group from outlook , it uses only default domain even though we have other domains inside tenant !
                                        after calling support and apply email address policy nothing changed and the support finally said the problem is with design ! this problem violate privacy between domains , and i suppose Microsoft to change this behavior ASAP .
