O365 Group naming policy for OLD o365 groups

Hello,

 

I just created a naming policy for o365 groups. I can seee that the policy is applying for all newly created O365 groups via Outlook/OWA clients. How do i apply this policy for the groups which existed even before i created this naming standard policy?

 

Please advice?

Hi, You cannot apply this policy for the groups which existed even before naming policy created. Another possible way may be to rename groups in bulk using PowerShell. But again it will just change the Group display name and email address.

Refer below thread for similar discussion for issues in renaming groups.

Thanks Santosh.

That means as of now when you rename group using GUI or powershell The URL and Onedrive folders will still hold the old name is that correct?

and no way to rename them as of now?

Yes, you are correct.
