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.
We have announced that Group Owners will be able to leverage existing groups to drive membership in Office 365 Groups.
It is crazy that this feature doesn't exist yet. It makes the O365 groups not very usable, as we have all our staff in mail-enabled security groups in AD, that we use for granting rights to things in O365 like resource calendars. It's too much to keep track of to also have to put them individually into O365 groups. We need to be able to add these security groups as members of the O365 groups.
We have numerous users complaining about this since we implemented the disclaimer a week ago. We really need a way to remove this from the preview so that users can be functional in the preview view. Currently they can only see the disclaimer in preview mode and they have to open each email to read it, which impacts their productivity.
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.
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 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.
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.
Today, based on feedback, we’ve lowered the timeout to 24 hours. In the future, we are planning more improvements, although we do not have any dates or details to share at this time. Thank you for the continued feedback.
