Allow an Office 365 group to be nested inside another Office 365 group.
Not able to nest an Office 365 group inside other Office 365 group make the task of managing groups much harder. This is a normal concept for all of us working in this field for a long time.

This is really still not a thing? How on earth are we supposed to manage a complex organization without the ability to nest.

When can we expect this feature?
Yes please to this enablement. Our Use Case is sharing Project Roadmaps with >7,600 E5 users (when that enablement arrives this month).
Please consider that in other to provide a smooth migration from hybrid environments to a full cloud environment, our old distribution lists being converted to O365 groups (soon to be M365 groups).
Delaying the option of nesting both security and office (including dynamic groups), will only delay and frustrate companies trying to become fully cloud environments.
Enable this fonction, please

The inability to nest groups is a major impediment to fully replacing our legacy systems. Organizing and aggregating users and groups is fundamental to maintaining good system controls.

Works for me! I was able to nest a bunch of O365 groups into one Mail-enabled security group.
This can only be done through PS, but it's pretty straight forward. The link talks about adding distro groups into Mail-enabled security group, but as I mentioned, this worked for me adding O365 groups too.
In essence, the command is:
Add-DistributionGroupMember -Identity <name of you mail-enabled grp> -Member <name of child groups>
I hope this helps!

It is crazy that I have to post on here to get something this simple completed. It should have been there from the inception. You could easily nest distribution groups in Exchange / AD. I really like all the features of Office 365 groups but not having the ability to nest smaller groups into a larger group makes for an administrative nightmare.
this is terrible. Just added a ton of needless admin and users not at all happy they can;t expand members in scheduling assitant

Its really troublesome that EAC is telling me, "Groups in Outlook offer you everything DLs do". I fell for that once before and it created a big headache having to recover all of my nested distribution lists that no longer worked.

This is really a needed feature if we want to replace Distribution Group with Office 365 group completely.

While AD allows you to do nesting in security groups, not having the possibility of nesting groups in O365 it creates a big disruption and additional management, this practices frequently finished with more issues and security holes and creating new processes for the business :(
