  1. Add multi-select for bulk message deletion in OWA

    Please bring OWA for O365 Groups into the 21st century and actually allow multi-select or Ctrl-A. Having to delete thousands of messages one at a time speaks volumes as to Microsoft's regard for user productivity.

    • Ability to separate Microsoft Team Channels from other groups

      Currently the Home>groups shows "Distribution List", "Office 365 Groups", "Security Groups", "Mail Enabled Security Groups", and "All Support Groups". The option to know which of the All Support Groups is Teams Channels/Groups would be helpful in keep groups clean.

      • Reduce sync time adding members to Yammer group

        When you add a member to a Yammer connected O365 group, it can take up to 2 hours to sync the user to the rest of the group resources from Yammer. It would be nice if it was more of an immediate sync.

          • Ability to upload attachments from Shared Mailbox into Office 365 Group's Document Library

            At the moment when in Shared Mailbox, there is an option to upload attached files to either OneDrive for Business account or Personal OneDrive account. Would like to see an option to upload attachments to Office 365 Group's Document Library as well.

              The search function in OWA does not allow you to search contacts that were brought in from public folders under the "Other Contacts" area.

                • Make group discussion interface more compact and outlook alike

                  I'd like to have a setting where I can choose to view the Group discussions in a more compact and Outlook alike manner. It is difficult to follow discussions in different threads in the same group today. It works as a charm for singel messages but not for discussions.

                    • Allow for better PDF collaboration in Sharepoint Sites

                      There is no cloud-based edit tool in Sharepoint to work on PDFs. Users need to download, edit, save, & upload static documents.

                      Can a plugin for an Adobe acrobat license be created to work seamlessly on the cloud?

                        There should be an option for creation of Portal Site, Planner and others integrated information with Office 365 groups while Team creation means that if user only required the Microsoft team for conversation purpose in a group on a project or on going activity. As in most of the cases Team Site and the other feature of Microsoft team is not required

                        • Control Panel Hangs and Crashes

                          When Control Panel crashes, direct a ticket# and phone number on the screen to a team dedicated to immediate needs, such as email terminations and setups.
                          Waiting for Office 365 to call back is an HR liability.

                              • Calendars: make them usable as a group booking schedule!

                                I need a system that allows me to show room and equipment bookings to group members, but which does not spam my group members with irrelevant updates and notifications. My group members do not need a blow-by-blow of how every room is used, but they do need to be able to quickly and easily check the schedule to ensure their own plans will fit.

                                • Planner - Define a Due date to a bucket Or a Member responsibility

                                  Sometimes we use the buckets as a weekly assignments tool, bucket for every day of the week.
                                  If we could set a due date for the all bucket it will be very helpful. Then, if one assignment is not finished it can be move to a different day, and its due date will change also.
                                  Same Idea with member responsibility.

                                    • On One Note, each note to have space for multiple date and time to link with Outlook Calendar.

                                      Working with a calendar alone can get unreal, if it is not directly connected to your overall work. If that work is all on One Note you can see the reality, or otherwise, of what you are doing. If certain notes are subject of future action on a given date, or dates, then it is highly valuable to have time and date spaces in the note for automatic inclusions in the Outlook Calendar. That cuts out the need to make another action in the Calendar itself, and reduces the possibility of error. Time saving too!

                                      • Shared contact list with group

                                        It would be helpful for a contact list (not in any way members or guests of the group) to be associated to allow group members to keep a current and shared list of related external contacts.

                                        • Improve organization of GroupMail

                                          With subscriptions, email is simply piling up in the inbox and not being cleaned up. If these messages could be organized it could help.

                                          Thought 1: Teams utilizes channels for organization. Could the O365 group inbox utilize these channels somehow? The group inbox correlates to the channel "general" and then either inbox folders or hashtags could correlate to custom channels? As a next step, could inbox subscriptions could utilize channels too?

                                          Thought 2: If groupmail inbox rules were available, we could create some organization manually. Perhaps customizing the subscription messages too.
