For those of you who manage Teams and try not to go near email, this is an important thing to know about...


On August 9, Microsoft launched the Office 365 Groups expiration policy into preview. It expires groups after a set period and helps keep the spread of groups under control. All sounds good, but the new feature needs an Azure Active Directory Premium license, which isn’t so welcome.

This is really bad from MS. not sure if this is the marketing strategy.

 

Expiry group is a fundamental feature for all customers and not just Premier customers.

 

MS should give a thought again if not then in Roadmap they should categorize if the feature is available for non-Premier customers as well.

 

Thanks

I agree

 

All O365 Groups functionalities (incl. group expiration, group creation permissions, ...) should  automatically be covered with the normal O365 license.
