  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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'.

  4. Enable @mention of an O365 group from News Post/Sharepoint page

    Please enable the ability to @mention an O365 group from a Sharepoint page. This will allow the power of push notifications, on mobile devices, to reach an intended audience. It works great for individuals but cannot do it for groups. It will allow a News post to be directed to a target group, then with one click on the received notification, the News post will open in the mobile Sharepoint app.

  5. Possibility to add AD Security groups in Office 365 Groups

    We like to manage authorisation on Modern SharePoint sites and MS-Teams using AD Security Groups, however it is not possible to add an AD Security Group into an Office 365 Group.
    Please add this option.

  6. Change the team site logo in the team site which is created through Teams

    If the HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled is true for the Office 365 Group associated with the team site which is generated via Teams, the site logo can’t be changed properly in SharePoint currently.
    We could change the site logo if we change the value of HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled to False. But we need to change the value with cmdlet and it makes the group be shown in GAL. So, it would be great if we could change the site logo for the team site which is generated through Teams by default.

    At present, if a SharePoint group is deleted, it’s not possible to restore it. Please change this so that deleted groups are moved to something like a Bin, where as long as it’s within a specific period they can be restored.

  9. Enable Team owners to establish "push" only info channels along with conversation channels

    Enable Team owners to establish (in Teams) "push" only info channels (publish info, do not allow replies) along with conversation channels (where information can be shared and questions/replies added). Ideal for organizations using Teams to boost "news".

    About Office 365 Group Sites related to Teams

    Teams で作成される Office 365 グループ サイトの管理を、SharePoint 管理センターのみではなく Teams 管理センターからも行えるように機能の拡充を希望します。
    サイトの容量の指定などが、SharePoint 管理センターからのみでした操作できないので、Teams で作成されたグループ サイトは区別できるようにしてほしい
    I would like the option to manage Office 365 Group Sites created through Teams not only through the SharePoint Admin Center, but also through the Teams Admin Center.
    It’s not possible to set things such as site storage volumes etc via anything but the SharePoint Admin Center, so in the case of Group Sites created through Teams I would like to manage them through that Admin Center.

  12. ID Groups vs Teams

    Trying to identify Groups vs Team is difficult, In AAD they both show as Groups. The ability to run a report of all Teams that created a group, all Groups that have a Team, all groups that do not ave a team would be nice. Even if this option is via powershell.

  13. permissions pane

    As a site owner, I should be able to update the default group for a site without losing the modern permissions interface.

    When I updated the default permission group from Members to Visitors, the modern permissions pane interface for sharing the site was lost and has only the link to advanced permission settings. Changing the default back to Members restored it.

    While I understand the need to drop the walls a bit on permissions overall, these changes to permission defaults or group names are normal business needs and should be accommodated in future updates to the interface.

  14. Define URL at time of Office 365 Group / Team creation

    When creating a new Office 365 Group (or Team), allow the creator to enter a URL for the corresponding SharePoint site in addition to the Group Name. Using the Group or Team name creates a URL that is often unusable and may not meet desired naming standards.

  17. Hide/Unhide a Group

    I have a group that was set up incorrectly and has now been hidden which causes a lot of issues. The SharePoint and Team are all set up how I need them so I don't want to start again. A simple way to hide/unhide a group would be really useful as nobody in my organisation seems to have access to PowerShell to unhide it that way.

  18. Sorting of group members

    "Group membership" appears to list members in random order making it difficult to locate members based on their name. Please list group members in alphabetical order and have separate sections for Owners and Members

    Option to prevent users from being added to “<site name> members” SharePoint groups


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint グループの "<サイト名> メンバー" グループに含まれているユーザーは、該当グループに他のユーザーを追加することが可能です。
    ※ 該当ユーザーは、"<サイト名> 閲覧者" グループにはユーザーを追加できないことを確認しています。
    勝手にユーザーを追加されると管理がしづらくなるため、該当グループに他のユーザーを追加できないよう動作の変更を希望します。

    Users included in “<site name> members” SharePoint groups can add other members to this group.
    * These users cannot add members to “<site name> viewers” groups.
    It is difficult to manage groups when users can invite others of their own accord, so please add a way to prevent members of this group adding other users to it.

  20. External members (Invited guest) to view SharePoint Teams/Group site members

    Currently, no matter what permission an external/Guest user has, the user is not able to view members from the SharePoint Teams/Group Site. The only thing they are showed is members 3 or 5 or 9....

    But internal users can view members by clicking "members" from the top right corner of the site.

    If there is a reason why it's been disabled for external users, Provide an article with an explanation.
