Figure I'll post here first.  I am looking for a "we are gonna move you to a Group" email for non-technical end-users.

Hi all,


Is it possible to add already created O365 groups as members to other groups?

This is not supported today

We are working on several artifacts as we make sense of how to use the emerging 'O365 Groups as a Service'-based Places.


1) our enterprise's take on the O365 apps broken down into Places, Tools and Infrastructure

2) a table comparing Yammer, Outlook Groups

A customer of mine wants to disable sync for all Groups doclibs.

AFAIK there is not a global setting for this.

I know that it is possible to do it manually for every single doclib in the advanced library settings, but such approach is impractical for hundre

Hi all. I am trying to get my head around the Calendar part of Groups and understand why a team or department would choose to use it. As far as I can see there is no Skype integration, and as 90% of our meetings are Skype meetings we would need to continu

If Planner start/deadline dates were on there I could see a reason, but, like you, I can't quite see how it's of any use to us.

Our particular group (in our organization) uses it for when colleagues are out of office (like vacations), major events, deadlines, milestones.

It's less so of a team meet

Oh, just found out solution.

I could find recycle bin on sharepoint site content page.

As we know, "Allow sharing only with the external users that already exist in your organization's directory" is the default for Groups.

Given that a customer of mine doesn't want to change such default (and in general doesn't want to use PowerShell), which

This is a limitation we are planning to address. We will also add the ability to set a default classification for all new groups. Please stay tune.
