Hello, I'm new here. I'm having problems with Outlook.com's Shared calendar (sync does not work anymore) so I'd like to use Outlook Groups instead.

First things first, the Outlook Destop app does not allow me to edit many group options, so I'd like to know

AFAIK, Exchange Online is a requirement to have both Groups and Planner working

Hi. I have a colleague who is trying to get Office 365 Group notifcations on his iPhone. However, he can only turn on notifcations for certain groups and not others. Is there any logical reason why that would be?


Thanks, Laurie

I have not it, in none of my tenants, neither in Edge, nor in IE, nor in Chrome and not in Firefox...

The Group Email Settings have disappeared from all my tenants overnight.

This only appears to work in IE or Chrome. When viewing the same group in Chrome or Firefox, these settings do not appear.

Where else is information posted for this new feature? I can't find mention of it anywhere else.
nice lots is coming to Groups getting better by the day!

Group Notification Cards can be sent via a local Windows Service on data change in hundreds of IT-Systems and apps now to keep your Group informed about backend processes. No modifications are required in the backend systems like SQL/ERP/CRM etc. On-prem

If I grant a user access to SendAs the O365 Group, and they send an email "as the group", and they don't copy themself, where does that email actually go.


I can't find any record of it anywhere inside the group (only in the inbox of the recipient).

Each time we create a Group we then have to go to the Sharepoint site and change the language and timezone under Site Settings > Regional Settings.


Is there a way to default these settings for new Groups?

I know that enabling for a single user via powershell works, but can I set it up so that all members of the group automatically get SendAs rights, without having to individually apply users?

You cannot use groups, best you can do is expand the current membership, but I bet you already knew that :)



I'm pretty sure the answer to this is no, but can an existing team site be linked to a newly created group. We already already have a team site, so don't need a new one. Can the Group be configured so when you click Site in the top nav bar you are tak
