More granular permissions on Office 365 Groups and Teams
We need more granular permissions for O365 Groups
While group collaboration is awesome, there are some items that need to be addressed. Just because you are a member of a private group does not mean I want you to be able to modify files, add calendar items, or other types of activities.
- Owners can do anything
- Read-Only Permissions. (Similar to Guest users)
- Read-Only Permissions to specific areas, such as files, channel creation...

I have been asking for this for AGES! Why should a student employee have full write/delete permissions to all the files I post???

We have a request to allow people access to only the calendar of an O365 group and nothing else (not the Inbox, Files, etc.). And the users should have view-only access, not full access. As far as I can tell, it is impossible to do this. So the manager will have to set up both an O365 group and a separate shared or resource calendar.
The distinction between owner, member and guest is too simple. We need more granularity. For instance, a kind of super user who can admit and manage members but not change all other settings for the group.
