  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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!"

  6. "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.

  7. 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.

  13. Allow O365 groups to be set for access rights in user/shared mailbox calendars.

    O365 Group calendar cannot be permitted to ppl who are not a member of that group, nor can you use O365 group as permission group when setting Shared mailbox calendar access.
    Sometimes one needs to set just a shared calendar with different level of access Editor, LimitedDetails, AvailabilityOnly and if we already have suitable bunch of users in O365 Group, why not use that for setting the permissions instead of creating another emailenabledSG with the same memberlist.

  16. Group calendar posts are no longer synching automatically to the group members. Has something been changed ? and if so, please put it back

    I spend HOURS this week on the phone with tech support. Group calendar items no longer post to group members automatically. It can be "forced" by going back into the posted item and sending an "invite". This is NOT the way it has always worked.

  20. Usage Policy

    Make it possible to require authors to accept a usage/governance policy prior to creating or editing an Office 365 Group. Following the same pattern that exists in Yammer would be excellent.  Specifically, when the policy is changed it has authors reaccept the policy.
