Groups not showing up in Outlook 2016 if you are only owner

Occasional Contributor

Dear community,


Is it normal behaviour for O365 groups not to be displayed in your Outlook (webmail and client) when you're only an owner? When you're also added as a member in the admin (so being owner+member) they do seem to appear in Outlook. This seems rather weird behaviour and a quick Google didn't offer help.

Well, a while back they changed the logic and you can no longer be an owner without being a member first. So I'm guessing the issue you are seeing reflects on that.

And how can we avoid this? Because the Graph API don't let use first create the users as member and then add them as owner. Is there an API that we can use to promote the member as owner? @Vasil Michev 

It works fine with PowerShell...
