There should be an option to convert a shared mailbox to an office 365 group especially since the Office 365 Group is the newer better version of the Shared mailbox and there is no way to convert.2,788 votes
Thanks for your feedback. We are currently thinking about this. Can you please let us know what scenarios your organization uses shared mailboxes for and what options do you use. This will help us.
It would be nice if the Tasks created in the planner using O365 groups would appear under the 'task' section of outlook.932 votes
Thanks for this request. We are rolling out the links to planner boards for groups in Outlook desktop from the group card, so that should help get to the planner task list.
This request seems to be asking for the Outlook desktop tasks list to also show planner tasks. Can you help us understand the use cases and details on the actions you expect to perform with planner tasks in Outlook?
I have a need to convert a number of distribution groups to mail-enabled security groups. Right now I have to record DG members, delete the DG, create the SG and populate the SG.448 votes
Just to clarify, you are asking for a DG-to-SG conversion, not involving Office 365 Groups, correct?
Please add a Groups button in the App Launcher. I thought this was a planned release.
I understand the reasoning behind Groups and modern teams and using Delve. However, my clients don't care and want a button. Thanks380 votes
Thank you for your feedback. Please share more about the specific use cases you are trying to complete or would use this for.
Currently an Owner of a group can delete that group - I'm aware soft-deletion is coming, but ideally we want to be able to stop users from deleting groups entirely. An Azure policy to specify who can delete groups would put power back with the IT Dept. This will allow us to empower users, but without the risk of them deleting groups and the content getting past the retention period and being permanently lost.351 votes
Thank you for your feedback. Please tell us more about how you would expect to use this.

Provide a user interface available to tenant admins to manage all groups and their associated properties (name, discussions, files, etc) and enhance ability to manage metadata.31 votes
Thanks for posting. The updated Office 365 Admin portal (in preview) includes a Groups center for managing group properties – name, description, membership, privacy type, lifecycle, etc. Reports on usage will also be released in the Office 365 reports center this summer. What isn’t addressed in the preview portal?
Every time I create a new group I only have the option to click check boxes for individual users to add them to the group. I would like to be able to add groups as members. We have state, office, department groups. It would be nice to just add them as a member of a new group/team...23 votes
Can you please tell us if your other groups (state, office, department, etc) are Security Groups or are they other Office 365 Groups?
How would adding this group help your O365 Group experience? What type of information will be shared and how does it improve the flow of communication or management? Thanks!
It will reduce the no. of groups to be created in the org as well as will reduce the complexity of adding 100 of users manually to O365 groups.10 votes
Can you please tell us more on the end user scenario you are trying to solve?
