    Or better yet, allow attaching a full-featured shared mailbox to a group like you do a SharePoint site. This would easily enable almost all of our needed features.

    -Shared Group Contacts - We need to be able to have central contact lists for our Marketing/Business Development Team. It's too hard for each member to keep track of updated phone numbers or contacts. Public folders can't be accessed from mobile devices.

    -Shared Group Calendars + Web Feed Calendars - As an MSP we use Multiple Calendars per Team to keep Track of On Call Schedules, On Site Visits, etc. Some of those are just calendar feeds from other 3rd party sites. Shared mailboxes are the only solution that works for our calendar requirements so we have to have a Separate Team and Shared Mailbox for each Team.
    Would be easier to just have the Shared Mailbox be a part of the team.

    -Inbox Folders - Would be nice to be able to create folders rules/filter spam for Team Mailboxes-- currently they're a mess with nothing filtered out.

    -Calendars for Channels - If you could link a Secondary Calendar on the Group Mailbox to a Channel, that would be nice. We prefer to have a team for each department that the department director oversees and use channels for individual projects or sub teams. Our Tenant/SharePoint get's too cluttered and hard to manage if we create an entire O365 Group for Every Project we're working on.

    -Mail Aliases for Channels as Sub Folders - If a Shared Mailbox was used, you could add aliases for the group or for channels instead of the @amer.teams.ms emails currently used. You could then have a rule that automatically sorts mail to that alias to a sub folder on the shared mailbox.

    Please also add ability to add multiple calendars to a team. As an MSP, we use several external calendars for OnCall and other tasks management. It would be great to be able to attach web feed calendars to a group/team in the same way we can to a shared mailbox. Then our helpdesk team would automatically have access to the necessary calendars.

    How do you expect people to migrate to your platform if there is no way to import existing group calendars? This is just basic stuff. If you had just started with a Shared Mailbox and built Teams/Office 365 Groups on top of that, you'd be in good shape. Now we're forces to use 3 separate half-baked solutions.

    I have to use public folders for Company/Team Calendars and Contacts ONLY because I cant import the thousands of existing items but Public Folders do not integrate with mobile apps or web apps easily.

    I'm using teams basically just for the teams app.

    Glad to hear working on improving support for aliases. Would be great if mail could be tagged org-wide with the alias or group email address to be easily visible from the users inbox similar to categories.
