  2. Planner link back to 365 Team site

    From Group team site you can open planner, but one in planner there is no easy way to get back to the team site. When you are at the Home of a Team site and you click the name of the group, a pop-out appears allowing you to navigate to the group features, Calendar, files, conversation, etc. This same functionality should be in Planner, or at minimum a click-back to the group-site somewhere.

  3. Consistent UI across the apps and connectors

    Conversations (EXO), Files (SPO), Calendar (EXO), Notebook (SPO), Planner (External?) are well organized on Outlook - Group View... but no where else! The only way to go back to the consistent view on SPO is "Group Conversation" link on top right but it should be better than that. I hope that clicking "Group" Link should have some flag for all tools and make sure that the same look and feels are avaialble across the relevant apps. And adding "Group" tile on the list of apps would be also very good idea.

  4. Automatically help users to clear out cache when being invited to a SharePoint group.

    Automatically help users to clear out cache when being invited to a SharePoint group. This should be a one-step process rather than requiring users to need to log out of Office 365 manually, then the SharePoint group administrator also needing to delete the user's profiles, before the users can be re-invited to the SharePoint group.

  8. Export Lotus Notes NSF Files to Office 365 Mailbox

    Well most of us know about converting NSF files to PST but exporting the Lotus Notes to Office 365 is a difficult task. Office 365 is somewhat complex when it comes to file migration. One method we can use to move NSF to Office 365 is converting them to PST and then exporting PST data to Office 365.
    Another free method for NSF to Office 365 file transfer is IMAP connector. First, create the mailbox for each user in Office 365 and then enable the TCP/ IP port in Domino Server. Use the IMAP connector to export NSF files to…

  9. Enable video upload in Outlook Groups app for iOS (iPhone)

    At the moment, in Group Conversations area, it is only possible to upload photos from the iOS camera roll using the Outlook Groups app for iOS. It should also be possible to directly upload video that's stored in the camera roll, to a group conversation.

  11. Allow returned mail from a group account to be forwarded to group members

    We send out messages from a webserver using a group email called support@xyz.com Sometimes those messages bounce. Usually bad email addresses. It's healthcare information so it's important to us to fix any problems and ensure that the message got through to the recipient. We need a way to get to the bounced messages. Preferably they should be forwarded to the members of the group. I understand that some people might not like this feature, so making it an option for the group would satisfy those of us who want the bounces and those that don't.

  17. Conversations about calendar items don't go to members' mailboxes

    Scenario: A calender item is created directly onto the group calendar via Outlook 2016 and the group is invited. The item correctly shows up on the group members' individual Outlook calendars. HOWEVER, if a member responds to the calendar item (for example, to propose a new time), the e-mail goes only to the group mailbox and does not get forwarded to any of the members, even if the members are all subscribed to the group mailbox. Therefore, none of the members are aware that anyone has proposed a new time and the communication is essentially lost. For more details, Microsoft…

  20. Restrict sending to groups to members only

    I have seen conversation about 'secret groups' being on the planned features to limit groups from the GAL. I would like to have the ability to sent an e-mail restriction as well that would only allow messages to be sent from group members.

    Currently you can manually do this in the Exchange Admin one e-mail at a time but I have not figured out a way to handle delivery restrictions by group so the group admins can manage the list.
