During setup of Office 365 Groups, have "Let people outside the organization email the group" be part of setup
During setup, the "Let people outside the organization email the group" isn't an option to check or uncheck. The option is part of the "Edit Group" along with all of the other information and options that was entered during Group setup. Would it be possible to harmonize the information on the Edit Groups to the setup process? I use Groups to track conversations for projects and we have outside suppliers that provide great information that needs to be shared.
We now have the “Let people outside the organization email the group" option in the Create group flow when you create a group from the Exchange Admin Center.
Do continue to give us feedback if you would like to see this option in the other Outlook endpoints.
According to the information provided by Microsoft this was to be released in first quarter 2018 which has come and gone. When can we expect to see this option as all of our projects involve outside vendors.
Can you add that checkbox when creating distribution groups within EAC as well?

I have a question for everyone who would like this:
Where do your users create groups from mostly? There are many different places where Groups can be created from: Outlook Web App, Outlook Desktop, Teams, Admin Portal (for Admins), Planner...
Which of those places would be a primary place to expose this from for your users? It might not make sense to make this available from everywhere (especially if places where the Group is being created from is not email-related, like Planner or Teams, for example).
