Seems like a very recent change but if you email a group that you are a member of you no longer get the message in your own inbox.


If others email the group you get the message so you are subscribed properly and I can confirm same issue against other grou

Does anyone know if there any plans to allow users to select different custom domains when creating Groups via the admin portal?  I know this can be done via PowerShell but it would be good if a different custom domain could be selected for the group ID f

The Exchange Admin Center supports chaning the domain, so you can use that I guess. Whether this will make it to the O365 Admin Center I don't know, perhaps @Anne Michels

So it seems that you can break permissions of individual lists/libraries/items, but you can't actually set permissions on the site as a whole?  Am I missing something when looking at configuring general permissions of a SharePoint Site

I think that Site Permissions are determined by the Group membership/ownership.

One of our users wanted to try out the MS Teams features. As all private Office 365 Groups also are potential MS Teams users get confused. In this case the user "removed" a potential duplicate Team from the teams app itself. The user didn't notice a Offic

Yeap, that's the reality for now

We have the problem here that a (normal) user is unable to invite guests to his group and can only invite people from our AD. If I sign into this group (me being a tenant admin) and make myself an owner of the group, all invites work as expected, meaning

If external guests to groups is enabled, you are done so it seems there is something wrong in your tenant with that particular user

We just enabled O365 Group Writeback via AADConnect to bring out O365 Groups back on prem.  They are created as Distribution Lists.

Hey all,

I'm trying to see if anyone is able to get content type hub syndication working with the new O365 Group sites. I have it working for our normal sites, but none of the custom content types are coming into the group sites. Any ideas on this?

Be aware that Group sites are at the moment special sites...this could change when modern sites arrive to groups

So, we are about to do some major rollout of Groups to our company.  While there are a million "entry points" for Groups, we simply wanted a list of Groups that a member belongs to on our Intranet Homepage, with quick links to each of the major workloads.
