Provide a setting to hide a Group from the Stream UI

There are many groups that do not need Videos/Stream service.  This provides a long list of Groups that a member may be part of that clogs up the UI on channels that might be available.


I'd make it a setting that a Group owner could check (either in O365 Group settings in each service like Outlook, Planner, etc, or in the Stream interface itself.)


This is part of a larger O365 Groups problem that too many services are being provisioned and making it confusing where users should put content.

I totally agree, we have barely rolled out O365 and the Browse-> Groups is too busy. It should be the Stream Administrator's option to activate a group to be visible in Stream.

Absolutely agree.  It would be great that using a Powershell command that we could choose to allow or deny that group to be shown in MS Stream, regardless if it is Public or Private.

I agree too. Good idea ! It's very hard to find groups where the purpose it's to promote enterprise videos. They are flooded in the all Office 365 groups. It's a nightmare !

Is there an update on this to hide all the groups as we have loads due to MS Teams creating a new group for every new team.  Really need to be able to clean this all up.


Agree - a desperately needed configuration option and I imagine not too hard to implement an additional attribute that can be set to true or false  for displaying in Stream

This would be great as many groups are not creating Content but just want a team in teams. up-vode +1000

Yes, I agree. This is definitely a necessary feature. The interface is just too crowded unless we can control which groups appear.
