How can we improve Office 365 Groups?

Add security groups to Office 365 groups

I need a way of making security groups part of an Office 365 group. I want to be able to add users to a security group and then they are automatically a member of a Office 365 group.

Dynamic group membership only appears to work for user attribute values and not their group membership.

    I have several large customers (5000+ users) in need of this feature to deploy Teams in the entire organization. At the moment this is seen as a blocker.

    The ETA can be found here on the Roadmap (Q1 2020):

    Any more news apart from the above on the already fantastic news that this is now a planned feature?

    Same ETA question as everyone else, but in regards to GCC. Any chance this will be rolled out to everyone at once?

    Hi, any ideas, when this will be available? Especially large companies manage their active directory groups with identity management systems. S othere is really a need to update memberships for e.g. MS TEAMS based on the active directory groups.

    Did Microsoft realized that at least big companys have their own group management system and that it is an absolute need to reuse these groups for application management in O365 ? That's the necessary condition for large deployment of O365 solutions. I hope they understood and that this feature is a priority.

    Our team is very much looking forward to this feature!

    It would be really great if you got around to this :)
    If this would include a method to add owners as a group also, that would be the cherry on top.

    Great to hear! Where does this sit on the Roadmap? Any expected release date? Looking forward to updates.

    Could I confirm that the Ignite announcement means that dynamic security groups created in AD and synced to 365 could be used to drive Office365 Group membership? This would be a very much needed feature. Any update on timescales?

    We would really appreciate this functionality as we start to move some of our workload to the cloud services in O365 while maintaining on-premises Active Directory. Hard to believe this doesn't already exist!

    We need this functionality immediately to support our Power BI rollout. Any updates on progress? Thanks!
