  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.

        • Groups visable on SharePoint homepage

          It is unclear as to when I would create a Group and when I would create a Site to support running project in my company. Can I suggest you add the ability to see Groups to an organisations SharePoint O365 homepage as well as Sites?

          • Please make it possible to set notifications to a specific group rather than a specific user.

            we currently have just shy of 800 people in our SharePoint, all of which (bar 7) are external users. Currently I have to set notifications for each person within each section within each web part of the site. I then have to keep a spreadsheet for the people I have set an alert for and monitor it to try and get the others set up as and when they access their account. In short this is simple, but incredibly time consuming and rather confusing as we have new people accessing our SharePoint everyday which means I also have to try…

            • 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.

              • Header space

                The Groups logo should be a bit smaller, also too much vertical space is taken up in the header. This space can be better used for displaying more documents.

                • 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…

                    • Make Tasks App for the Group site home modern design pages

                      You have the Tasks App with nice timeline available here and might be added to the Group site. It's a very good and quick PM tool. But it's available only in classic view and non of the Tasks might be searchable at the Group site home page. It's a huge limitation for our team. Please make that Tasks App available for modern page design and keep timeline feature with it please !!! Tasks App is much better PM tool then your funny Planner. Thanks . Andrei

                      • Permission Groups

                        Better Group Management. I think it would be useful if there were more options regarding group members permissions. You could create 'subgroups' of members in addition to "Owners", "Members", and "Visitors", where you could assign certain group members to these 'subgroups' and modify the permissions of this 'subgroup'.

                                If we specify a security group that has nested structure as “Send alert to” user in the alert setting, or as groups to be granted permission, unexpected events may occur.

                                For improvement of usability and manageability, fix the problems and allow us to specify nested structure security group when setting an alert or granting permissions, without any problems.

                                Thank you for your consideration.

                                    • Modify Quick Launch menu with horizontal dividers, non-linking headers

                                      Allow for better management of the quick launch menu by allowing admin to add horizontal dividers between links and also add headers (non-linking) to group menu items for better usability.

                                        • Sync Teams and Sharepoint Groups

                                          notebooks, documents, etc. from Microsoft Teams should sync automatically with Sharepoint groups. Otherwise, it makes no sense...they are basically like two separate tools doing the same thing and it is very confusing in the organization.
