Hi folks!

 

I'm here to share with you some new functionality that's coming to the Office 365 group hover card that appears in Outlook on the Web and SharePoint Online!

 

While these features are not net new to the endpoints, we're adding these in the hover cards so that you can take action on the groups in context of what you're doing, rather than going to a separate page.

 

1) Search for members

In the [old] Outlook on the web as well as SharePoint Online, you can already search for members. We're bringing this to the group pages in the People module in the Outlook on the web as well as the expanded hover cards across SharePoint Online and Outlook on the web. 

 

2) Renew your groups

You can already renew your groups from the email notifications, or in the client in Teams or in the People module in the new Outlook on the web.

Now, you can also do so directly from the hover card and get on with your day.

 

3) Approve pending members

While you can already accept pending members from the emails or People module in the new Outlook on the web, you can also do so directly from the hover card.

Let us know what you think and what else you'd like to see in the hover cards!

 

Cheers,

Ethan

Great news! Thank you!!

How about other clients? 

@Ethan Li  This is great news! Will owners be able to search inside security groups that have been added to the O365 Group as well? We have scenarios where people accessing a group will be a mix of individually added users and whole department or teams added as an normal security group (sometimes synced from AD) e.g. "SP_Finance_Team" will be added to the "Administrators" O365 group. It would be very useful if owners could look inside those nested groups as well.
