  1. Create a new type of group or Limit the members of Distribution or Unified group to 100 or so.

    We currently have groups which are made by users who then add hundreds of users there.
    While the user feels empowered to make the groups, it causes more work for O365 admins then it was needed, example unsolicited email send to these groups and it needs cleanup.

    • Please allow Group creator to choose who can send email to group using the gui.

      Please allow Group creator to choose who can send email to group using the GUI.
      Currently the O365 Admins can set this via the admin console or via the powershell.
      This will also empower the Group creator/owner so that they can ensure unsolicited mail does not come through

        • Ability to identify what functionality is associated with a Group.

          It would be great to be able to see from the admin screen, which functionality is active in a group, e.g. Outlook, SharePoint, Planner, Teams etc.

          • @all should work for broadcasting an email message to all members in the group, even if the number of members in the groups exceed 10000.

            Dear Mr Shankar Raut,

            Respectfully submitted through Praful Kamble Sir, Office 365 Team.

            I quote you verbatim :

            “ Another issue was with sending emails to more than 10000 recipients in a day.

            As per the below mentioned article we can only send up to 10000 recipients a day and that is a limitation and its by design.
            https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/exchange-online-limits.aspx

            Sir,

            I am Andrews George Koyappa and have created AKLC – Andrews Koyappa Learning Centre Group in Outlook ( Office 365 Group) which currently has around 79000 members and is poised to cross 1 lakh members by the end of…

            • Why cant we use @all option to broadcast email message to every group member in groups with more than 10000 members?

              This limit is inadequate for my Office 365 Groups like AKLC and Knowledge Universe.

              • Search-UnifiedAuditLog ObjectID is "Not Available" in Powershell results

                Unable to search for groups by ID using Search-UnifiedAuditLog using this cmdlet:

                Search-UnifiedAuditLog -StartDate 6/14/2018 -EndDate 6/18/2018 -ObjectIds <guid>

                I believe it is because the Object ID is not being populated / indexed for searching. For example, if you run this:

                Search-UnifiedAuditLog -StartDate 6/14/2018 -EndDate 6/18/2018 -RecordType AzureActiveDirectory

                The AuditData -> ObjectID property is set to "Not Available". Should be the GUID of the group.

                • Add Shared Calendars to SharePoint (not lists, not outlook calendars, which can't be shared outside 365)

                  Now Calendar's are only in Outlook and cannot be shared with a SharePoint group. Would like to put a schedule on SharePoint in Calendar form for all group members to use. This can be done for free with Google Calendars. Microsoft needs a similar product that their competition has, and fast!

                  • Enable Group Assignments in Teams

                    You can only use individual assignments in Teams. We really need group assignments, because students work together on some assignments. When only one student of a group hands in the group assignment, Teams has to recognize that it is a group assignment and that feedback and grade has to be delivered to all group members.
                    A class is divided into groups of students.
                    Without this addition, Teams is not useful for our university of applied sciences!

                            • Can not invite as an external user in the Office 365 groups if the UPN and primary SMTP address are different.

                              I want to invite people who are different from UPN and primary SMTP address as external user of the Office 365 groups.
                              However, UPN must be registered in the secondary SMTP address.

                              • AD security group and Office 365 groups are synchronized.

                                I want to operate Teams efficiently when changing members.
                                I am hoping that the AD security group and Office 365 groups are synchronized.
                                I want members of the Office 365 groups to be changed by changing members of AD security group.
                                I links personnel information with the AD security group.
                                By changing members of the security group at the time of a personnel change, the SharePoint side set the right permission without changing the permission.
                                I would like to realize this same operation in Teams and Yammer.

                                  The Groups app on iOS no longer works (it just links to Outlook), so now we cannot view Group calendars on iOS.

                                  • View Settings

                                    Add in some view settings to the Groups other than just Reading pane views. Make this fully customization like a "standard" inbox is. The ultimate goal would be for Groups to be able to have almost the same appearance as if it were a normal inbox.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.
