Office 365 Groups miss 3 important features: subfolders, status (completed, uncompleted) and tags to be comparable to Google Groups
to allow a full google groups migration
We currently use shared mailboxes instead of Groups because we can create sub folders. When someone responds to an email they will move it from the inbox to a sub folder with their name on it. This allows us to have a history of who responded and prevents more than one person from responding to the same email. Unfortunately shared mailboxes are not viewable in outlook for iOS. Groups would be an ideal replacement but without the ability to create sub folders it’s useless for our application

I agree completely. It's amazing that the capability to create subfolders is still missing!
Subfolders in Outlook Groups are very much needed in our Project oriented organisation. A typical Project can easily consist of dozens of subfolders, organizing project related e-mail for dozens of external stakeholders.
We are now reverting to not use Outlook Groups and create Public Folders to store e-mail in a correct manner.

Please add subfolders to conversations in Outlook Groups; this list of emails could get huge, and being able to organize would be key for us.

Fully agree. I am wanting to use an Office 365 group which will receive in excess of 100 emails daily, however there is now way to keep track of what is complete and what still needs to be actioned.

Am I crazy, or shouldn't these be basic features of any group. Why would managing messages sent to a group be any different than any other email message in a folder in your user folder? This seems pretty basic.
