  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.

      • 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.

          • 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?

            • View Office 365 Group Membership

              We should be able to see the group member list for Office 365 groups by clicking the number of members line in the upper-right corner.

                • 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…

                  • 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…

                        • Drag and drop files from one group to another

                          Enable the ability to drag and drop files between groups on Sharepoint, since right now I can only move files within the group and in order to migrate to another group, I have to download a copy to my local drive, then upload it to the second group.

                                • 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

                                    • Team Channel folder structure

                                      Create TEAMS Channel structure under a folder that's called "Team Channels" instead in the Office 365 group document root, it will get mega messy.

                                        • implement the feature to check the authors starting the Office app files once saved in SharePoint Online document library.

                                          I am frequently managing the Excel files for our business operation and I find that none of us except the file author is able to get accessed the Excel file when the author is only Excel file.
