  1. Ability to move conversations/emails from one Office 365 Group to another.

    Sometimes we need to delete a Group and create a new more relevant group. Can move OneDrive and OneNote content easily enough to the new Group. However, cannot find a way to move the Group conversation (email) - would like to retain this in the new Group for historical reasons.

      • Ability to add a O365 Group to a DL

        Currently if you add a O365 Group to a DL, the mail will not appear in the Group mailbox. It will only appear in the users inbox if the user is subscribed. Since it will be a slow process to convert all our DL's and we do have some nesting DL's this is would be very helpful.

        • Unable to Create a Rule to Move Synced Text Messages to a Folder

          I recently turned on the syncing of text messages on my phone, which syncs all my text messages to my Inbox. This is a good feature as now I can see and preserve my text messages without needed to look at my phone.

          The problem is, there are so many text messages it is causing me to miss important emails.

          I tried to create a rule on the web client to move the texts to a folder. It will not create the rule because the text messages don't follow the same convention for emails (does not contain @domain.com). I then…

                  • Join codes for Microsoft Classroom classes

                    Please build the ability for a teacher to create a join code for Microsoft Classroom classes. Students should be able to use this code to auto-join classes instead of having teachers manually enroll each individual. This would cut down on the setup time for classes.

                    • Combination of Outlook Groups Calendar, Planner and Notebook

                      A project manager organizes her/his project in Outlook Groups by means of invitations with an agenda, tasks, minutes of meetings, and the follow-ups. lt would be helpful if specific Planner tasks could be selected and integrated in an invitation agenda in Groups calendar. Before the meeting starts the agenda should be transmitted into a Groups Notebook page. There, the agenda should be enriched by discussion results. Eventually new tasks will be created which should be defined as new Planner tasks.

                      I think an improved Flow template(s) helps project managers to handle their tasks.

                      • Automatically subscribe to all Groups that your invited to

                        If an owner accidentally forgets to subscribe new members to the Group, I would love an option that automatically subscribes to all new Groups I'm added to so I don't have to check to see if the owner remembered to select this option when creating the Group.

                            • Make a TO DO part of a conversation, not a new conversation

                              TO DO´s should be attached to a Conversation within a Group and not create a new Conversation every time you create a TO DO. To distinguish them from a regular message it can have a light blue tint, for example.
                              To have a new conversation every time you create a TO DO could make the Group unmanageable very fast.

                              • Allow Project Web App to create a Mailbox email address WITHOUT having to create an entire Group for central email repository for projects

                                Not sure this goes here, but it is the advent of Groups that caused the issue. I used to be able to create a simple email address for projects on Project Web App. However, now I am forced to create an entire Group to just obtain an email address. I do not need the accompanying SharePoint site or Notebook or File sharing areas as I have that in PWA. Can I just create a simple email address and use it in the PWA Mailbox area.

                                  • Treat groups as a folder in email applications

                                    Is there a way to have groups show up as a folder so they appear in our inbox in various email applications (such as ios mail app)? In this way we would be able search through the groups in our inbox and not just in the outlook app. Also, we need to be able to move where the groups appear in outlook.
