I spoke with an Office 365 Group PM in the Expo Hall at Microsoft Ignite to explain my desire to see a folder structure in Office 365 group mailboxes. He told me the underlying infrastructure was already there but not enabled and no current plans to enable. He advised posting here on user voice and explain the business need.
In one of my sessions at Ignite it was advised to use Office 365 groups over shared mailboxes. I think that is a great idea but our organization will not see Office 365 Group mailboxes as fully functional without the folder structure. Some of our shared mailboxes were previously Public Folders so there are some large folder structures in these mailboxes. When working out of a shared/group mailbox it is important to have that structure to file away email once the appropriate action has been taken.
The SharePoint site started out in Office 365 groups with minimal functionality but grew to a fully functional site. I would like to see the same for the mailbox.
Thanks for the feedback! Can you provide more information on how you would use Group’ shared contacts and if this feature is something that you need in both consumer and enterprise identities. Please keep the feedback and votes coming! Thanks!
