We have a request to allow people access to only the calendar of an O365 group and nothing else (not the Inbox, Files, etc.). And the users should have view-only access, not full access. As far as I can tell, it is impossible to do this. So the manager will have to set up both an O365 group and a separate shared or resource calendar.
Having to do permissions thru PowerShell is too difficult for a support tech so I had to set up security groups in AD that are assigned the permissions and then the techs add people to the security groups. It would be nice to just be able to assign permissions in the Admin Center GUI, so it would be easy enough for any support tech to do.
This functionality is critical to be able to move users from shared mailboxes to O365 groups. The groups are not usable for many users without this.
Hello, I’m updating the status of this UserVoice suggestion back to “thinking about it”, as it appears the previous status update was misleading. The core of the suggestion is to allow folders.
Keep on posting on this suggestion to create folders within group mailbox.
This is a critical feature. Users need to be able to organize the mail in Group mailboxes into folders. Otherwise, they'll have to use shared mailboxes instead.
I find it hard to believe it's still not possible to do this. I had a user today requesting this on a resource mailbox. It's natural for a user to think that this could be done. It makes no sense to not have this option.
Keep the feedback coming. We appreciate continued details as to which option(s) would work best. The trick is balancing notifying users (who usually can’t take action, but certainly want to know when messages are delayed) vs. notifying the admins (who may or may not be able to take action but may not want such a quick notification — for example if they are responsible for a server that is down for planned maintenance or a DNS change which takes time to propagate). We would certainly like for this to be somewhat configurable in the future, but also are considering alternatives to the current 48 hours.
