When creating groups, or after the fact with a PowerShell command, all the ability to set a hide=True attribute so that the group is not visible when viewing all. Several other elements such as distribution lists and security groups can be hidden so why not allow the ability to hide Groups. This will allow groups to exist that are truly "private". This would be very helpful for groups that need a bit more privacy in order to operate using the Groups functionality beyond the invite only capability.1,510 votes
“Secret groups” is still on the Microsoft 365 Groups backlog, but there is no delivery date available at this time.
Love the ability to add task to a group with Planner but please have task that have an expiration date automatically add themselves to the Group calendar and the Assigned resource's calendar automatically.832 votes
We’re exploring options for how to surface tasks from various endpoints into the right user experiences.
Please give us the option to hide the Groups section altogether on the email login page - I'm sure it's a nice feature for some, but there's some of us out here who don't and won't use the Groups feature, so it's annoying to always have to hide in upon logging in.93 votes
Thanks for the feedback. We have made changes in OWA and Outlook such that if a user doesn’t want to view their groups or not want to use the groups, they can collapse the Groups node in the left navigation panel. And it will stay collapsed unless the user opens it again, it is saved across reboots and app restart.
Overall feedback about reducing the clutter is a valid feedback, and we will take this into account as we think about simplifying the overall experience.
It's a security matter. Now person can share Group membership to his external account and use the group with that account even after he leaves our organization. Can we have an option that informs admins if there's a Group that has only external user(s) or remove automatically all external users from a Group that has no internal users left in it.6 votes
There is obviously a gap between Public and Private Teams. I would like to see some kind of policy setting just like the ‘Prevent O365 Group Creation’ method that would prevent a certain group of internal users to be able join any team without approval and that any O365 Group mailbox (particularly Public O365 Group mailboxes!) is not accessible at all until approval to join has been given. All Teams Workloads should of course respect that policy. This all would be required to accommodate temporary personnel without comprehensive nda’s which you just want to give access to certain Teams/O365 Groups0 votes
We have a similar concept called “Secret groups” that is still on the Microsoft 365 Groups backlog, but there is no delivery date available at this time. There is also a similar user voice item tracked here: https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/286611-office-365-groups/suggestions/8158710-ability-to-hide-groups-that-are-considered-privat
