  1. Forbid the creation of a user with the same alias of an existing group

    Once upon a time we had a working group. Then suddenly we could not see any email thread in it or its calendar, and users could not join or leave the group.

    We opened a ticket with the support, and it took about 3 months time to understand the root cause: somehow someone managed to create an unlicensed user with the same alias of the group. Once we deleted that user, the group started to work again as it used to.

    Forbidding the creation of a user with the same alias of a group would have made our life easier…

  4. Enable Public Folder to Group Migration

    There currently is no way to migrate a public folder into a group. There are various advantages to using a group instead of a public folder and I would like to convert several public folders to groups. The problem is that there is no way to move items from the current public folder to the group. Will this be implemented soon?

  6. Customize footer in email sent to an Office 365 Group

    It would be helpful to have the ability to customize the footer which currently reads as "To stop receiving messages from [group name] group, stop following it." One use case is where we are migrating from older email groups and we want to remind users of the group of the new email group address and that the old address xyz@somegroup.com is no longer valid. We would also like to include other boilerplate contact information in the footer as well, but would want this added to all messages regardless of who is sending the message.

  9. Use the real name for group mail and one note

    Just food for thought here - We have so many conversations with leads who do not understand why Office 365 Groups rename features that already have a name like "Conversations", this is a group email, and "Notebook" which is OneNote. Based on this feedback I think it might be easier to understand what these features are, without having to poke around, if they were just named what they are: GroupMail and OneNote. It might seem obvious to a lot of people, but it is definitely confusing for older generations and SMB types.

  10. Sharepoint Migration to new tenant

    We have a way to save traditional SharePoint sites as a template in case users of that site need to move to a new tenant and the site can be restored. However, with groups and teams there is no such capability. This means much of our content cannot be moved over. Now that my organization needs to make that move, I'm hesitant to continue to use those applications.

  12. Improve Search Functionality in Exchange Admin Console

    Currently, when searching for an external mail contact in the EAC search, no results will be returned unless you type the address in its entirety. A partial address search would greatly reduce the number of false-negatives when searching for an outside contact.
