Will it be possible to create a news article as a group or a department (e.g. Communications department) instead of displaying the user who created the news article?

We don't have that capability at the moment. We have a feature in our backlog for ghost writing, essentially the ability to write on behalf of someone. Good to know that you'd also want to publish as a group or department in that case. Definitely something we will take into consideration as we build that feature.

Great to see it's on the backlog @Alyssa Danesh. Yes, I mean "write on behalf of someone" functionality. And yes, I've had some customers who wanted to publish as a group or department.

Hi @Alyssa Danesh,
We are also looking for a similar functionality for a Communications Site. Basically, post on behalf of another account. I don't see anything the Office 365 roadmap, so I was just checking if there has been any update on this functionality.

Thanks!
