I can add my O365 group when setting up a new Team ... whenever I want to @mention to that group in a post, that group is never shown/given so that does not work

Are you in that team when you @mention?
@mentioning only works within a team aka you can’t mention a user,channel or team from somewhere else except the team you are mentioning!

thanks for fast reply Adam ...

 

Yes, I'm the O365 owner of that group ... group is called 'LQ'

 

* when setting up a Team, I can add under members this group

* however, when i post something in a channel of that Team, using @LQ does not give a match

Ooh! I get what you mean!!

By adding a group as member to another team will make an one time only import of the members of that group! The group itself won’t be a member! Office 365 groups currently doesn’t support nesting!

If you check under manage team, you will see that only users of that group is added and not the group itself!
So that’s why it isn’t found when you try to @mention it :)
