We’re excited to announce that group properties mastered in Exchange Online can now be modified without assigning an Exchange Online license.

 

Many customers have reported a desire to allow administrators who manage Microsoft 365 Groups (previously Office 365 Groups) the ability to modify properties mastered in the Exchange Online service without being assigned an Exchange Online license. Previously, any attempt to modify a property mastered in Exchange Online would require an Exchange Online license be assigned to the user attempting to make the change. The product team has recently finished deploying a change which will allow administrators without an Exchange Online license the ability to update Exchange-mastered properties through the Microsoft 365 Admin Center as well as API calls using Microsoft Graph.

 

The following screenshots illustrate how this scenario is supported. A full list of properties mastered in Exchange Online can be found at the bottom of this post.

 

Let us start with a user in Azure Active Directory named Isaiah Langer:

Isaiah is assigned the role of “Global administrator”:

Isaiah does not have any licenses assigned:

Navigating to the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, Isaiah finds the Marketing group:

Isaiah is not an owner or a member of the Marketing group:

Isaiah navigates to the “Settings” tab and discovers two properties which are both mastered in Exchange Online:

Isaiah can enable “Allow external senders to email this group” and “Send copies of group conversations and events to group members”:

After clicking “Save”, the properties are successfully updated:
