Convert distribution groups to mail-enabled security groups
I have a need to convert a number of distribution groups to mail-enabled security groups. Right now I have to record DG members, delete the DG, create the SG and populate the SG.
Just to clarify, you are asking for a DG-to-SG conversion, not involving Office 365 Groups, correct?
This would be very nice and hopefully easy to implement.

We need the option to change a DG to mail-enabled SG - without any Office 365 group.
Please add the possibility to convert a distribution group to a mail-enabled security group in Exchange online. the feature exists to convert to Office 365 groups already.
Please add this, it would be very helpful.

Yes, I would like this added as well. Converting an Exchange DG to an SG could easily be done with on-prem AD/Exchange, but why I can't do it with Exchange 365?
I've had more than one occasion when this has been necessary.

We need this function as well as we had a large number of distribution group to convert bcos of sharepoint access rights.

Please add this. It was easy in AD with on-prem Exchange. Departments want to use their DGs to control access to their SharePoint sites and other Office 365 applications now that they have them.
I am waiting for this , It help a lot!

Yes this would be great. It is so easy in AD I was surprised to find it was not possible for the cloud-owned groups.

Admin.. Yes convert Distribution List to mail-enabled security Groups
I also would like to see this functionally implemented into Exchange Online ASAP.

Please add this functionality! It caused me a huge headache to have to recreate hundreds of groups.
Hello, this is DG-to-SG conversion in Office 365 environment. And this is not involving Office 365 Groups.
This would be nice. We have several third party products that we use AD security groups with in order to manage access. This would allow a Team to control access to an application.
