  2. sort

    Currently, the Groups discussion is sorted in ascending order (the original post --> older replies --> latest reply).
    It will be super clear and easy to see discussions in descending order (the original post --> latest reply --> ...) which is same as SharePoint discussion.

  3. Get-mailbox, -identity be facultative

    get-mailbox -resultsize unlimited | select-object -expand emailaddresses should return all email addresses, because we need to do get-mailbox -IDENTITY * -resultsize unlimited | select-object -expand emailaddresses when identity is normally facultative and is used to select a specific mailbox

  4. Improve/Fix Sharepoint Syncing via the Web browser

    Sharepoint will not sync multiple sub-folders via the web client. Though it works through the OneDrive sync client, Office365 is billed as a "web/cloud based" platform, and the functionality should work seamlessly through the web. It doesn't.
    Case number: 5839311

  6. Receive accept and declines from conference rooms when booked through O365 group calendar.

    We have a hybrid environment and we just ran into this issue. MS O365 support confirmed it with their non hybrid environment as well. When booking a conference room with O365 group calendar the decline or accept from the room goes straight to deleted items.

    Who looks in deleted items folder for accepts or declines from conference room? Its hard enough to get people to read the messages when it comes straight to their inbox. Please fix this issue.

  7. View Settings

    Add in some view settings to the Groups other than just Reading pane views. Make this fully customization like a "standard" inbox is. The ultimate goal would be for Groups to be able to have almost the same appearance as if it were a normal inbox.

  8. Add members to Teams in bulk by CSV flat file - Agregar miembros a Teams de forma masiva por archivo plano CSV

    Good Morning

    It would be a great help that when adding members to a team, they could be raised in several at the same time from a flat file or a CSV.

    In my university, teachers create teams according to the subjects assigned to their professorship; The drawback is that a teacher can have up to 10 groups of 45 student participants.

    It becomes very complicated to upload one by one those 450 students.

    I hope you work on this suggestion, it would substantially improve the application.

    Regards;

  10. admin center groups

    in the =365 Admin center =>From the Home Active userssection. there are only 3 lookups filtering the database of users, "Display Name - UserName - Status" there is no way from the "Add Custom View" to add more lookups to this screen to better organised and manage users. I need to add Groups to this screen, so that when i put users into O365 Groups, i can quickly select only those users in a specific group and then be able to modify certain data.such as bulk editing passwords, location data, departments etc. currently and for the last few years this…

  11. O365 Group Expiration - Recovery Duration

    We have a policy that deletes our O365 connected groups and yammer… working pretty good. But owners only have 30 days to restore the group after expiration…. HOWEVER the resulting SharePoint site is still available for apprx 90 days… We can restore the SPO site but not the group (the membership, etc) after 30 days. This seems to be an inconsistent process where SPO has two recycle bins but the O365 connected resources are only saved for 30 days. Would love for it to be consistent with SPO as 30 days is not enough at times.

  13. Add conversation link automatically to the title of a file uploaded to group library

    It is essential to be able to link the files downloaded on the group library (sharepoint or onedrive) with the conversation where this file was received because often we need to have the file AND the associated message in the conversation if not informations are lost or difficult to find later. I have a turn around right now by copying the conversation link in the title of the file but it would be great if that functionnality was automatic... What do you think about that?

  14. Docoment Type Icon Takes Doesn't Update

    When you create a new folder and you drag a number of files to that folder in a group, the gear showing the progress of updating the document type icon (word, pdf, excel, etc) doesn't update upon completing the upload. For the user, it appears as if the files are still loading and yet that's not the case. This doesn't happen when using the classic view.

  15. In Team site document library, disable delete option for one member

    We have Team Sites for our Office 365 Groups.

    If this team site have the view only permission for members + visitors, and we give to a member the modification right on one directory in document library, he can add and modify content in the folder, he cannot rename this folder, but he can delete the folder.

    Is possible to fix this ?

  16. having an auto-reply function for shared folders

    we use shared Folders for applicants. Today there is no function for an auto replay. That would be very good to have that function...

    Thank you, Thomas

  17. O365 Video View Count

    Per Microsoft support, the video view count takes over 24 hours to reflect accurately do to search crawling the data. I would propose this is enhanced to provide accurate data much quicker, at least in line with the statistics.

  19. 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
