Thanks for sharing this with us. The team is looking at how to improve the O365 homepage. These are helpful details. Others should please comment with specifics as well if they have ideas on customization improvements. – Jay Waltmunson (O365 Program Manager)
Allowing the user the ability to create their own individual page similar to the Modern Home page in Office 365 Groups would be great. In this way the user can customize by adding from a list of Web Parts (or for the developers creating their own) to create a page containing everything they need for their own individual daily work. It would surely help trying to sell the concepts of O365 Groups to the user too when they can play around creating their own individual work area with a variety of Web Parts.

This is now possible, by adding a page and then adding a Forms webpart, however I determined that when I added a Form to the page and completed the questionairre, that a mail was sent to the Group mailbox (under conversations), which meant that anyone following the group also got that mail, i.e. as I configured the Form to collect the user's information, it meant that every group member, including external guests, got this information. This needs to be fixed so that the automatic mail only goes to the Forms owner and the person completing the Form.

Fully agree. We are deploying Office 365 Groups and creating PowerApps for usage from the Group's SharePoint home page. Now if I have created a Group of a few hundred users I do not want to have to share individually to 300 users by selecting individually from within PowerApps, nor by creating a new Security group for that same Office 365 Group. I want to be able to add that Office 365 Group to the sharing invitation - without having to find some Powershell workaround to add access for all Office 365 Group members to the PowerApp. Thank you.
