Just to clarify, you are asking for a DG-to-SG conversion, not involving Office 365 Groups, correct?
This would be very nice and hopefully easy to implement.
this really needs to be done, people are missing calls and IM's all day long because of this
What... IT needs control of the applications in their environment... nonsense.
Please Microsoft.... listen to this.
We’re planning to release a group privacy type called “secret groups” later this year. Private groups (those whose contents are only visible to members) will still remain in the directory. Secret groups are essentially private groups that aren’t visible in the directory by non-members.
Microsoft - what happened to releasing this in 2016? And just use the same friggin attribute that already exists vs creating some sort of secret group.
tell you more...? what more do you need to know after 4 years and this being the top requested idea for O365 groups?
basic functionality that needs to be included.
I agree, this is needed.
We really need this capability for the reasons stated in the suggestion. Distribution groups have this functionality and if MS expects O365 Groups to replace distribution groups, this same functionality needs to exist.
We are working on providing the ability to edit the email addresses (both primary and secondary) associated with an O365 group. The ability to modify the SharePoint site URL is still being considered.

Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion. Remember, the more votes a suggestion gets, the more likely it is that we’ll do it.
Delve needs to return results from yammer...
I still think this idea would be a game changer for MS Office.
It would be nice if Microsoft could comment on this.... It's been almost over a year since this was suggested.
Not to mention, installing the same version of office using the Click to Run has taken me 1 hour on a client. 1 hr all to change my update channel settings.
This has been the #1 complaint from users since we implemented safe links. If a hyperlink can't be created it should read something like

The purpose of the Office Deployment Tool is to provide this capability. Download the Office 2016 version from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49117.
Only problem with ODT is that it doesn't work for the Business Premium license. You have to pay $20/mo per user for the enterprise license.
It would be nice to hear some comments from Microsoft on this one.
I'd really like to see this!

Great news! This capability is included in in the recently updated Office 365 Roadmap entry: “Admin App Launcher Customization Tools” which can be found in the “In Development” section.
Barbara, that was an extremely political response. I think what you meant to say was, Microsoft wants the ability to force it's apps on organizations whether they want/need them or not.... There is just simply no other reason for not allowing choice, other than Microsoft wants control.
