I want to add members to an existing Office365 Group, but for various reasons, I don't want them to receive an email notification. Is there a way to turn that notification off?

Hey @Tammy Emond,
I think I should be able to help you out!There is not a way to my knowledge to do this in outlook or the O365 GUI, but there is a way to do this in Powershell.
In Powershell O365 groups use the commands that are around "unified groups," which was an old name for what became O365 Groups. There is an attribute in there that is called a welcome message.
So for each group you wanted to do this on, you would need to run the following in Exchange Online Powershell.
Set-UnifiedGroup <groupname> -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled $false
To turn it back on, just pass the same command with $true
Thanks Adam! I was hoping to be able to do this without using Powershell. I see that this has already been suggested to MS, so here's hoping they come up with a simple solution (like a checkbox?)...
