  1. Allow users to create folders within 365 Group Conversations / mailboxes

    To really replace Shared Mailboxes our users need to be able to quickly categorize incoming emails and show that actions have been completed by dragging and dropping emails to a named folder in outlook.

    For example accounts payable shared mailbox allows any member of the accounts team to drag an invoice email to another folder to show that it has been entered for processing

      Hello, I’m updating the status of this UserVoice suggestion back to “thinking about it”, as it appears the previous status update was misleading. The core of the suggestion is to allow folders.

      Keep on posting on this suggestion to create folders within group mailbox.

    • Change groups sites/URL URL.

      Today when you create a group, it is created under the "/sites" managed path. Please change this so we always can have complete governance over the /sites-path. So when we want to create new site-collections you won't get URL-conflicts.

      • Time Zone settings for Office 365 groups

        Users and administrators should be able to change the TimeZone settings in Groups.
        if a new file is added it is always in PST Time Zone which makes no sense at all.

        You can work around this by appending this to the group URL: /_layouts/15/regionalsetng.aspx?noredirect=true

        And if you browse to the site you have to request access as access is denied even though you are the owner and creator of the group.
        This also doesn't make any sense.

        If you're in the first release you can see the "Site Settings" when clicking the Gear Icon but you are always redirected…

        • Microsoft Planner create multiple plans per group

          To have an Office 365 group for our team is a great idea. However, the team I'm on has multiple projects ongoing, and having to create a new group for each plan and then to assign permissions for each plan and manage documents, conversations, etc all in separate plans is an excess.
          Better to be able to label documents, conversations, emails with each plan and to allow multiple plans than to have to manage all the plans separately and create groups that will be needless after the project is complete.

            • Provide guest members full access to group calendar

              Add the ability for Guest members to access the group calendar along with files and conversations. At this time you can only send invites to these members but they can not create events themselves or see the calendar.

                I like to add a security group to an Offic365 group with more than 400 members (440). It seems to work in the interface, but de users arn't added. I like this to share date with all my 440 collegues.
