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.

We DEFINITELY nees a option to hide Groups in Outlook 2016.
We would also like the ability to hide the Groups section entirely.

We definitely need an option to hide the groups folder from the OWA view. Especially since Teams are in there and it causes confusion for users who then start putting their 'conversations' into Outlook which are then not visible in the Teams app conversation space.

Agree with needing the ability to hide groups. I do not use them and they take up a lot of space especially when you have multiple email accounts.

Strongly agree. The Groups section can prove to be unnecessary clutter when you have numerous inboxes and mailboxes.
