I suggest you ....

Allow SharePoint Sites created via O365 Groups to be managed in SharePoint Admin Center

Each Office365 Group creates a new SharePoint Site, this is not currently shown in the Sharepoint Admin Center so it is not possible to manage specific sharing rules, storage and compute quotas and other advanced settings. Such sites should appear in the Site Collection lists to be manageable.

Thank you for all the feedback.
We now include all the Office 365 Group created sites in the Active Sites page in the new SharePoint Admin Center. The new admin center allows SharePoint Admins to manage all modern sites, and we are in the process of enhancing the new admin center to allow admins to perform all the tasks that are available in the classic admin center. The modern admin center will soon become the default place to manage SharePoint.

    Still waiting, most o365 services connected now with a spo site and o365 groups, SPO admins must be able to manage the groups and teams , means owners and members and mapped spo sites.
    I saw the new team roles announcement, not helpful, Why we do posting here if nothing coming back with most "likes" ?
    Also the mandatory loop between EXO, SPO, Teams be able to build reports or runbooks ps based is at the moment horror, feedback to our management "sorry that's Microsoft".

    This and also "Microsoft Teams"-Teams each get an own SharePoint site. While I am a SharePoint administrator, but not an Office 365 global administrator I do not even have permission to access the sites from the new SharePoint Admin Center.
    We are currently holding a bunch of SharePoint Site Collections, where we can not see, who created them, if they are for a MS Teams-Team, an Office 365 or an actual SharePoint Site Collection.
    This makes management nearly impossible.

    Any update to this request? The new admin experience is better but we still cannot manage these o365 group sites. Till this capability is enabled we do not plan to roll out MS Teams and other productivity tools to our organization.

    On our tenant we had to disable group creation because we were essentially incapable of administering over the standalone site collections created when an O365 group is created.

    We know you can use security groups to allow for select users to have group creation enabled and how we could provide our admins with ownership over all the various site collections created via O365 group creation, but we never set our environment in a way that accounts for this, so we did the easiest thing possible which was eliminate the capability and do damage control on what already existed.

    Also, please allow Global Admins the permissions to delete a SPO site when they are not the "Owner" of the site.

    I assume "working on it" is why the O365 group team sites are now listed under site management in the CA preview.

    They still can't be administered from the CA, though, so showing them in the default views there just clutters up the new site management portion with useless info***.

    Yes, you can use "customize columns" to add the O365group column and then filter them out; my point is they should be filtered out by default, until/unless they can be affected from SharePoint Online CA instead of just in O365 Admin Console.

    ***especially for those who are SPO-admins only, and not tenant/global O365 admins too.

    It is insane to me that Sharepoint Online and the Office365 group functionality shipped without this functionality. My Sharepoint admin portal displays that we have only 380GB of storage capacity available out of our allowed storage of 1.27TB. Yet, the site collections only show 1.46GB of data used. Our IT department looks like imbeciles because we cannot manage this resource, and it's due to MS setting it's admins up for failure.

    Where is this feature? Or at least guidance for getting the data via powershell. I've spent weeks trying to find something... ANYTHING, to manage this.

    Without this, planner gets pretty much unmanageable and therefore, unusable... With it, it might become one of the most powerful simple to use Office 365 tool.
