Is it possible to trigger a group message on behalf of the group vs. individual team member?

Regular Contributor

Hello,

 

I have two scenarios:

  • Communications Team - wants to use groups for sending messages on behalf of the comms team vs. individual team member.
  • HR Talent Development Orientation - is considering using groups for new hire training messages and also want the "From: GRPxxx" to reflect in message.

Is this a possibility? If so, can the group owner to swith this on? If not, can this feature be added in the near future?

This is possible because you can grant SendAs permission to the group mailbox in the same way as you can grant it to a normal mailbox. After that, it's a matter of selecting the group mailbox as the sender in Outlook or OWA and the right name will be stamped into the message header.

 

There's even a support article on the topic: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Use-PowerShell-to-manage-Office-365-Groups-Admin-help-aeb66...
