How can we improve Office 365 Groups?

recover / restore deleted office 365 group

It is currently not possible to recover/restore a deleted office 365 group, if accidentally deleted. In that case all files will be lost! Please add the ''recover deleted office 365 group' option. Also being able to recover the files / group from the administrator 'site settings\recycle bin' option in sharepoint, would be very helpful.

    Somebody commented below in Feb 2017 that you should steer clear of Office 365 groups until this gaping hole is fixed. Well sadly Microsoft have removed the ability to create new site mailboxes so my client is pretty much forced to move (unplaned!) to groups and run the risk of a group getting deleted, especially as they are encouraging user self-service in groups.

    Yet another half though through idea that appears to be have been pushed out to end users without due consideration of the impact.

    Very unhappy customer! Get this flaw fixed ASAP.

    Can we please get the ability to recover a complete Microsoft Team that gets deleted accidentally or maliciously? If that happens you loose everything,including the SharePoint Team Site, Chat, everything.!

    I noticed about a month ago that all deleted O365 groups and sites can be found in the SharePoint online recycle bin.

    Log into your SharePoint Admin portal via PS and run Get-SPODeletedSite all deleted sites should be there.

    I'm experiencing this in our company as well, as the last commenter said, it might be best to stay clear of Groups in Office 365. Hope Microsoft gives this priority.

    This status is still the same for many months. It should get more priority. It is very dangerous right now to use o365 groups.

    Is there a timeline anyone in Microsoft can commit to? Items on the "fasttrack" understandably take time, but groups have been around for enough time for data deletion to have been addressed (especially given the fact that they are branded as a finished product and to be the pillar of the new office 365 team-focused environment). This is a very serious issue for any company and should have been addressed by now.

    What about a warning...
    I just a little nag.
    For example: "Deleting this Office 365 Group the group site is also deleted, and the email Inbox is deleted. And cannot be recovered. etc…." Click Yes to continue….
