  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Change of Group Names not propagating to File Explorer / OneDrive

    Changes made to Group Names should propagate to File Explorer / OneDrive / SharePoint folder Group name. Users are required to delete and re-sync their current OneDrive / Link to Sharepoint in order for new/changed name to be reflected in their local File Explorer. Further to, users do not have a unified content, users require additional IT training on how to; time lapse for data download / non productive, etc, etc.

  8. 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.

  9. Make a way to downgrade a "Group" to a DL.

    Example: If you create a Group and then decide it needs to just be a DL, you have to delete it and start over.

  10. Allow default SharePoint quota for Groups site collections to be changed

    Organizations should have the option to change the default quota on site collections created for Teams/Office 365 Groups to whatever they'd like. The out-of-box default quota should also probably be something much less than 1TB for Groups sites.

  12. improve communication to users when O365 Exchange is not working

    recently I have not been able to connect to O365 Exchange. Microsoft provides no communication to me. customer service states "we have the same problem." My most recent outage was 70 minutes. It would appear the O365 Exchange reliability is diminishing.

  13. @all should work for broadcasting an email message to all members in the group, even if the number of members in the groups exceed 10000.

    Dear Mr Shankar Raut,

    Respectfully submitted through Praful Kamble Sir, Office 365 Team.

    I quote you verbatim :

    “ Another issue was with sending emails to more than 10000 recipients in a day.

    As per the below mentioned article we can only send up to 10000 recipients a day and that is a limitation and its by design.

    Sir,

    I am Andrews George Koyappa and have created AKLC – Andrews Koyappa Learning Centre Group in Outlook ( Office 365 Group) which currently has around 79000 members and is poised to cross 1 lakh members by the end of…

  14. Sync Office365 security groups to SharePoint groups

    Add a function to sync Office365 Security Groups to SharePoint groups. Currently, there is no way for third-party applications to query membership of an Office365 group in SharePoint. Syncing these groups would allow them to do so.

    Hello everyone,
    Greetings from a Berlin, Germany and have a nice day.
    I would like to make a suggestion concerning the dictation concept in Word.
    What if the machine could learn my kind of speaking and dictating not only online but also offline with certain things I have to read so that the Programm can learn my style of speaking and dictating and can improve in recognising & understanding my speech and voice and so on?
    I usually have my systems switched from German to English but use the Programm Word of course in the German language for the usual…

  18. About behavior when editing Office 365 group calendar with read-only permission from Outlook Client

    About behavior when editing Office 365 group calendar with read-only permission from Outlook Client

    You can grant read-only access to group calendars to Office 365 group members with the CalendarMemberReadOnly option of the Set-Unified Group command.
    However, even if you give the group calendar read-only access as described above, it will complete successfully if you edit the corresponding Office 365 group calendar using the Outlook Client.

    After editing the group calendar from the Outlook Client, when viewing the same group calendar from [Outlook on the Web] or other users, the editing of the group calendar was not reflected.

    Read-only permissions…

  19. Marking inbox mails with reply/forwarding icons when you replied/forwarded them

    Outlook only marks inbox emails with reply icons if you have replied to that email via Outlook. If you respond to the email via a website (such as gmail) or apple's mail app, these icons are not displayed.

    Makes it very difficult to keep track of which emails have been replied to and which haven't. Forums online say this has been an issue since 2016 and still not fixed....

  20. Atalhos no outlook para agendamento de sala de reunião

    No Outlook web ou cliente desktop não possui atalhos para que um colaborador possa verificar as salas de reuniões disponíveis em determinada data e horário para agendamento.
    Para um colaborador seria uma grande facilidade poder existir essa opção de fácil acesso, agilizando e otimizando esse tipo de demanda.
