    • Naming Policy for Azure Premium Customers Only

      In Microsoft's April update for Office 365 groups they mention the Azure AD naming policy is coming but only for Azure Premium customers. This should not be the case. Proper management of Office 365 groups should include naming policies. Without naming policies, there is a large potential for namespace collisions for folks who do not use the Azure AD premium service. This is something that should be available to all not just Azure AD premium customers.

        • Hide Groups

          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.

            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.

          • Remove external users from Group if there's no internal users in it

            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.
