  6. Keep in Outlook message older than 1 year

    In Outlook I'm able to read and search message only from last year. It could be helpful to be able to read and search message in Office 365 Groups older than 1 years in Outlook desktop app, or at least have that rule of mailbox offline keeping could be valid also for groups. As my advice could be the best to have rule different for each groups.

  8. Microsoft Teams - create several Teams per O365 Groups

    I work on multiple topics and projects with the same target audience. It would be great to be able to create several MS Teams out of a same O365 group. This would avoid creation of duplicate groups, as it can become very messy.

  11. SEE Ticket NO. 13967108 opening groups in outlook navigation gives nothing to display here message

    the navigation panel in outlook displays groups . when you click on one of these groups nothing to display here message appears. If you want to see the files you have to goto the files tab. The message should direct users there or just open the files as it used to?

  15. office-theme is not permanent

    I think there is a bug in the Office 365 options. Namely if the office- theme is set to dark gray. Sometimes that choice disappears back to colorful without cause. I have been in contact with the community and they suggested to report to you.

  18. Indirect reports in a Dynamic 365 Group

    Our VPs and directors would like to have an easy way to notify all their staff and post information as well as work product.

    I would like to be able to create a dynamic group that is populated by all the staff that report to a manager/VP. This would need to include all the direct reports, and the staff that report to them. This would make it easier to create groups and Teams for departments without the need of direct action, and allow us to use them for a variety of purposes. Right now the only way to get to…

  19. It would be wonderful if we could add the Groups Calendar to the Calendar portion of the app instead of having to drill down so far to acces

    It would be wonderful if we could add the Groups Calendar to the Calendar portion of the app instead of having to drill down so far to access it in the side menu. That is extremely inconvenient and you can't view say a work calendar alongside your personal appointments. Please consider making this a part of the next update. Thank you so much.

  20. Add/remove attendees from an event without emailing the other attendees

    Using the Office 365 Calendar REST API (specifically the "Update Events" calls) to add and remove attendees. Would like to add and remove attendees without triggering an update to all attendees.

    The docs clearly state:

    "If the user is the organizer, the server sends meeting updates to all attendees."

    Currently we are using the EWS API, which has a SendInvitationsMode flag which is basically the behaviour we desire

    Is it possible to get the same behaviour via the Graph API?
