  1. Always show options to send email invitation and select group or permission level

    My users want the option to send email from the Share UI to be more obvious. Currently it is on by default and hidden under Show Options. Often they complain they didn't want to send email, especially if adding a large group. Also, depending on site group structure, the default group selected might be one with too much access, so I think that should not be hidden under Show Options either, regardless of the fact it has the text at the top of the window.

    • Alert notification for private Office 365 Groups don't work

      I would like to see that the Alert notification for Private Office 365 Groups work the same way they do for Public Groups. We run into this issue as users create Private Office 365 Groups. There than wanted to setup Alert Notification under Files for Group members. It does not work. Change the Group to Public and you will get alerts.
      Only work around right now is modifying the URL to https://testdomain.sharepoint.com/sites/testgroupyph/_layouts/15/people.aspx and adding the users manually to the permission group.

      • Multiple download

        When multiple files are selected, have the option to download the group to computer instead of just other folders in sharepoint.

        • Add the feature to update "the name of security group" automatically.

          I am aware of the name of security group has not been automatically updated in SharePoint Online when modified the name. The support team suggested to delete the group once, then re-submit the group due to default behavior. But it takes a time each time I required to do that process.

          I hope the feature to be available that enables to update "the name of security group" automatically.

            • Regarding the way not to send invitation

              In case I invite users or invite security groups users to SharePoint group, I wish not to send invitations.
              Although I know that I will be able not to send them by unchecking check box,I need to uncheck it after clicking "View options". I would possibly forget to uncheck the box because by default mail sending has been already set. I request that the display of "Send an email invitation" be clearly shown without my clicking "View options". The reason is why many of our users will inquire us, asking about "what kinds of e-mails". Or, it could be better if…

              • Allow people to use O365 Groups to share files with external contacts (this is currently only available with Site Collections)

                Currently, we are unable to use Office365 Groups to share files with external recepients, and we'd like to be able to do that since we're using different groups for different projects and it's very convenient to have.

                More information on the following support thread:

                    • Integrate Office 365 groups with team sites

                      The roadmap shows that Office 365 groups linking to a team site is under development.
                      We have designed in SharePoint 2010 a similar user experience with SharePoint sites and presented these sites to Outlook through a third party add in.

                      We have a framework called Work box Framework. This framework focuses on the creation of a Team site based on either the organisational structure or communities of practice and they are essentially the owners of any content that is created under these team sites. The team sites is the window to the content and holds information about the team membership…

                          • Integrate Search in the Office 365 Group Website

                            Search functionality should be implemented directly into the Office 365 Group Website.
                            Results should be files, calendar items, emails/Messages; all items that can be inside an Office 365 Group.
                            Results should be rendered in table format grouped by item type and not in a fancy tile/preview/whatever format.
                            Changing to delve or other mechanos only to search is not what a user would expect and has a low Usability.

                              A survey was completed of 10 or so internal departments. Each department responded via email. I need to archive these Outlook items for future reference. The .msg files uploaded to SharePoint with no problem. The problem is viewing them without having to download them onto the local machine, then opening the file in Outlook.
                              Microsoft has done a great job of enabling users to access office files (.xlsx, .docx, etc.) right from the browser. I see no good reson why users should not be able to access .msg files just as easily. OneDrive and the various online components offered through…

                              • Regarding the display of Office 365 Groups document libraries

                                Up until now, there has been an Office 365 Groups overview displayed on the left side of the screen in Office 365 Groups document libraries. This overview however has disappeared.
                                I would like to see the overview over Office 365 Groups names being displayed again.
                                Also, since the navigation pane on the left currently cannot be edited, I would like you to create an option to edit that navigation pane, if it should not be possible to have the Office 365 Groups overview displayed.
                                Even though being able to edit site collections in Office 365 Groups, things are very unhandy…

                                    • One Click save a copy to personal OneDrive

                                      Is there a way to have a student right click or use a menu to save a read only document listed in the files of a classroom to their personal one drive so they can immediately edit the document in a word editor online? Right now - when putting a document as read only to share with students, they have to download it first, then open one drive and drag it into onedrive to save it there, then they can open it in an editor... OR they can open it in word and have to login to office 365 again…

                                      • Regarding the share Office365 Group site's Outlook on the Web

                                        If I create Office 365 Group and make group sites,I can share the items and edit them online. However, I am unable to edit the items online with the [File] in the Group site's group section of Outlook on the Web even if I click the them.
                                        I work with some user who are unable to apply Office client to the environment and I am aware that I can't edit any items immediately, affecting our business.
                                        I hope the feature to be implemented that enables online editing within Outlook on the Web as well.

                                        • Excel Survey

                                          For the SharePoint Teams Site and Groups I wish when you hit New you had the option for "Excel Survey" like in OneDrive.
