How can we improve Office 365 Groups?

Time Zone settings for Office 365 groups

Users and administrators should be able to change the TimeZone settings in Groups.
if a new file is added it is always in PST Time Zone which makes no sense at all.

You can work around this by appending this to the group URL: /_layouts/15/regionalsetng.aspx?noredirect=true

And if you browse to the site you have to request access as access is denied even though you are the owner and creator of the group.
This also doesn't make any sense.

If you're in the first release you can see the "Site Settings" when clicking the Gear Icon but you are always redirected to the Group again.
Atleast append this to the links: ?noredirect=true

Also, time zone settings should be in the Group Creation wizard so users can choose it while creating the group.

        Also along with setting the timezone you need to be able to set the regional settings, so that excel documents know what date format to use, and when looking at dates they are based on the users regional settings.

        Please resolve this problem ASAP. This is basic functionality that is used everywhere. Our users want to use their local numbers, dates, and time formats and we need to cpecify the local time zone, not Pacific Time

        group URL: /_layouts/15/regionalsetng.aspx?noredirect=true does not let you save changes MS support have confirmed this is "by design".
        This forcing of US date formats on non US companies makes the product unusable for holding work related documents that contain dates. For example an appointment in a spreadsheet for 01/12/2016 (1st of December 2016) will show as 12/01/2016 (12th January 2016) with potentially disastrous results.
