This is an ongoing irritation for our Office 365 Group members.
The primary way our employees use the shared calendars in Groups is to post vacation days or other reminders. Frequently, they forget to un-check the option to notify all of the other group members. Since we have so may Office 365 Groups, our employees are getting spammed by these entries.
We need a way to administratively set the default action to "not notify group members".
The process of saving off the contents of the source calendar to an ICS file and then attempting to import it into the target Office 365 Group calendar is not possible. The only target of the import of the ICS file is the "current user's" Calendar. There is no option to select another one (e.g. the Office 365 Group calendar)
This is a big issue for our organization. We have quite a few shared calendars which need to be migrated to their new Office 365 Groups.
This process STILL does not work in the full Outlook Client:
1.) Switch to the "List View" of the source calendar (Shared Mailbox)
2.) Select all entries & copy them
3.) Switch to the "List View" of the target calendar (Office 365 Group)
4.) Paste the entries
Thanks for the feedback. We are planning to bring group calendar to Outlook iOS and Android app in the near future.
FYI: The ability to view a Group's calendar is now available in Outlook for iOS (haven't checked Android). HOWEVER, the functionality is clearly broken and not ready for *********...
1.) Swipe right when viewing your Inbox
2.) Scroll down to "Groups" and tap on the entry.
3.) Find and tap on the name of the Group you're interested in.
4.) Tap on "Group Details".
5.) Scroll down to "Events" and tap on "See All".
6.) View the hot-mess of inaccurate (even time-shifted) calendar entries.
I agree with this.
In addition, it would be nice to have an option to have the safelink wrapped in a new anchor tag with the display text equal to the original link location?
you can do this in SharePoint today (i.e. put all members into Read Only permission bucket)
This topic has been dead for over a year. We really need the ability to at least designate some group members as being "read-only". Can anyone at Microsoft help us to do this more efficiently?

We agree and we’re working on it! Please check out the latest announcements and videos here:
Could someone give us an update on this?
We're in the GCC (Government Cloud) and we still cannot copy or move a file from OneDrive into an Office 365 Group. Following the group as well as following the group's "site" have no effect.
Is there a SharePoint-specific setting we're just missing?
Thank you for your feedback. Please share more about the specific use cases you are trying to complete or would use this for.
Could Microsoft please add a tile to the Office 365 start menu?
Our users need constant coaching as to how to view and access the groups they're subscribed to. If only the tile led to a landing page with a display of all of the group names they're a member of, this would help us greatly.
Yes, we know that others have commented that "Groups" aren't a "Product". However, that's not how Microsoft is now marketing them. The "Groups" app for iOS and Android is easily adopted by our users, but leaves them confused when they try to find the same "App" when logged on to the Office 365 portal.
You can copy documents in SharePoint https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Move-or-copy-items-from-a-SharePoint-document-library-00e2f483-4df3-46be-a861-1f5f0c1a87bc or leverage the OneDrive sync client on your desktop to copy and paste files across SharePoint document libraries

Yes, this is frustrating. It would make sense to make "Global Admins" owners by default (hidden) or to allow the addition of security groups to the member/owner lists of an Office 365 group. As it is right now, we have to first grant ourselves "owner" access to each Office 365 group before we can assist any of our users.
I'd also like to make a plug to permit group owners to see all deleted content within the group's recycle bin AND to be able to easily view and manage all versioned data in any of the lists/libraries.
