This morning I discovered that all the sections and pages in a group notebook had vanished! After I'd calmed down, I found the missing pages in the recycle bin.

Is it possible to make the notebook attached to a group read only by members other than the own

We promote the creation of groups, so we can close the network drives.

Well you can now sync Group files on your PC, so I imagine it should be possible that way?

Has the "Open with Explorer" feature ever been discussed as it relates to the Groups files?  That functionality has been very useful on a few occasions when migrating data from one library to another in SharePoint.

I prefer to use File Explorer over the NGSC

Oh, thanks. But this sounds not good. No import and obviously no export functions. Is Sharepoint a dead end for mail?

Is anyone aware of a way to allow users to create groups, however to disable the public group option?   


I know of ways to switch them.
