    Disabling the welcome mail is possible with an extra parameter in the Set-UnifiedGroup cmdlet in Exchange PowerShell: -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled:$false. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/users-and-groups/set-unifiedgroup

    Use this as a part of a custom group creation flow if you would like to restrict and/or customize the welcome mail for many groups across your tenant.

    Very surprising this is not already possible. Nobody wants to be spammed with a bunch of useless notifications when starting off, and admins do not want to cause a load of unnecessary noise in the mailboxes. This is a feature I had many years ago using Sympa lists, and yet Microsoft still have to catch up with basic functionality it seems.

    Hi, As announced at Ignite Sep 2020, we will be making this functionality available as an open source tool by the end of the year. It can be used to pull in 1 or more security groups (nested or not) to drive the membership of a M365 Group. The membership will be pulled in as a flat list and kept in sync with the security group membership. However, if you have a pressing need for it before then, please reach out to GMMSupport@service.microsoft.com for a download of the tool. There is no support provided for the tool from Microsoft, other than answering any question around how we use it here. Link to the tool demo at Ignite: Making IT more efficient with improvements to Microsoft 365 Groups – https://aka.ms/Admin1011

    I knew office365 was going to be bad, but hadn't realised it was THIS bad. How could they release it without the basic capability of adding a Group into the Owner/Member lists? You can already do this with distribution lists, and shared mailboxes. Why omit office groups from the capability?
    This makes administration of an organisation with a large number of groups extremely time consuming and awkward. Far better to stick with distribution lists for email, and use Slack for collaboration. Just drop Teams until it catches up with the 21st century.
