  1. Add the name of the group to the alert about group creation

    If you set an alert via the security centre to be alerted upon group creation a couple of things could be improved. Firstly the alert isn't immediate or even within an hour. It seems to be upwards of 2-3 hours before you are notified. Secondly, when the alert comes through it doesn't say that the name of the group is.

    We set an alert hoping to quickly intercept any inappropriate names. You can find the name if you view the audit logs to see if the creating user added any files.

    Thanks

  6. Create New SP Admin Role

    Currently there is a significant gap between SharePoint Administrator role and the Exchange Administrator role. It would be helpful to have a role between the two to allow an admin to not only create new SP sites, but also create O365 groups.

  9. Quota of Site Collection for Office 365 group “File” would be set beforehand

    I think it would be more convenient if admins could set the quota of Site Collection for Office 365 group “File” before users start to use it.
    Incidentally, one of URLs for Office 365 group Site Collections could not be obtained by “Get-UnifiedGroup” for some reason. The behavior should be more stable.

  12. Allow Files tab to show all the library contents

    Whilst the addition of attachments to the files tab is a very good idea the removal of anything else in the group's document library is not particularly helpful. I like to post links into the library - I'd far rather that files showed everything in the library plus mail attachments, Ideally you could configure this so those who want the current experience could say "just true files" etc. to keep everyone happy.

  13. Do not send tasks or updates as meeting requests in Groups

    I wanted to add tasks and or updates in my calendar. When I added the items it automatically went to the group as a meeting request- which was not the purpose of me putting the items into my calendar. Is there a way to stop Groups for disseminating an item or task as a meeting request. It really takes away from allowing me to integrate my events or other items my team may be working on. We just want the calendar to hold dates as well as have meeting requests.

  14. Inform users when they are creating a Group what that entails (a.k.a. global address book entry, Planner, team site, etc)

    It would be nice if this information were part of the message users get when they create a new Group/Plan/etc. The majority of our users who create groups have no idea what they are getting when they create the group. It would be great if they knew that it was also creating an entry in the global address book, etc, so that they name their group accordingly.

    Groups are currently getting confused with distribution groups, and for example people who create Plans have no idea they will show up in all these places.

  15. Give us the opportunity to turn the feature off.

    Nobody at my organization uses this feature and it takes up space in the sidebar. We would like to be allowed to get rid of it, instead of being told "oh, it's *useful*! It's *good for you*! You have to accept it!"

  16. "Shared with us" view doesn't constantly shows items there.

    "Shared with us" view doesn't constantly shows items there. Refreshing the page sometimes works and sometimes don't. It seems that the items the user accessing the view directly have the permission are constantly displayed. However, the behavior changes between tenants, and also times. More specific public information on "Shared with us" view is desired.

  17. Fix the Group Calendar Webpart for All Day events

    The display of full day events added in a group calendar is shifted by one less day in the group calendar webpart. Adding the same event from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 displays it correctly.
