  1. Group OneDrive default folder for Office 365 Planner uploaded attachments

    Give admins the opportunity to set the default folder within the Group OneDrive where all the uploaded attachments from Office 365 Planner will be saved. Now, all the files go to the root folder - they are unsorted and disorganized (their movement to another folder causes error 404).

  2. Disable email notification when adding members to an Office 365 Group

    I would like the ability to disable the email notification members receive when they are added to an O365 Group. We have the need to add a large number of users to a new O365 group and the auto-email will be confusing and disruptive to this group of people

  4. Add email moderation to Office 365 Groups (as it exists for Distribution Lists)

    The majority of our groups are Office 365 Groups (the Microsoft recommended option when creating a group) as we utilize the Teams/SharePoint/etc integrations those have, but it's entirely lacking the ability to moderate emails sent to those groups. We can restrict who can send to the groups with Exchange, but once someone has access they can send whatever they want. Please add the moderation process option that distribution lists have to O365 Groups.

  6. Recover / restore deleted files Office 365 groups

    There are similar threads about restoring deleted Office groups, but this suggestion is about deleted files in a Office 365 group.
    As I understand it a deleted file is only visible in the recycle bin belonging to the user that actually deleted the file. Only the user who deleted the file will be able to recover/restore the file.
    I would like the Office 365 groups recycle bin to function as a shared "folder" among the group members, or - at least - with the group owner. Someone else than the user that deleted the file should be able to recover/restore…

  8. Group Admins should be able to Subscribe/Unsubscribe existing members

    If there are existing members in a group, the admin has no way to subscribe or unsubscribe them from receiving messages sent to the group.

  10. Option to set "Browse Library" as default view for files

    All of our Groups files view has been switched to the "New Experience" view for files (aka "Group Files"). Now, users just see a bunch of files, and no folders. To see and manage folders they have to select "Browse Library".

    This is terribly confusing to users. We need the following 2 options

    1) ability for users Group Owners to set the view as desired

    2) Ability for system admins to PERMANENTLY (not temporarily until the Tenant Space is forced to upgrade) disable this new view so users can continue to use and manage their folders.

    This new view is…

  12. Allow members to copy files to document library with content approval enabled

    Currently in an Office 365 Group, we have 2 libraries:
    1 working library
    1 publishing library with content approval turned on.

    Up until several weeks ago users with edit permissions in the publishing library were able to copy files from the working library into the publishing library. Now they no longer have the permission to do that.
    This is a change that has seriously affected our implementation and we desperately need this ability back.
    It is not logical that a user with edit permissions should not be able to copy a document from one library to another.
    Please fix this!

  14. Create an alert for groups that go empty

    When staff leave or transfer departments it can make a group go empty (ie, no members). A concern as no one emailing that group is aware.

    I'd suggest an alert option in Security and Compliance to trigger an alert if something happens to make a group become empty.

  16. Allow Admins to Create O365 Group Template For New Groups

    Allow Admins to create a Group template that is used whenever a new Group is created. Right now, we have to manually adjust the settings for the document libraries, timezone, site features, site layout, etc. every time we create a new group. It would be great to be able to create a template that preconfigures new groups to whatever specifications we set. E.g., We want east coast time zone, specific columns in our doc libraries, metadata activated, planner and calendar links in left menu, specific quick links pre-set at the top of the site's home page, etc. Having to customize…

  20. 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.
