Does anyone know if you can change the colour of the icon the plan has, seems to be randomly assigned. Would be great if you can change them like in OneNote to group them.

Hi, it is not possible to change the color of the icon. But it would be definitely useful to have such a feature.

Agree here with Santhosh

You can't change the color of the icon - but you can upload your own picture for the icon. so you can make the icon anything you want. You do this in group settings

Thanks @Howard Crow, is this only possible if you have outlook online? We don't have outlook as a web app.

@Shelby Wilson, Alternately you can do this via PowerShell using Set-UserPhoto with -GroupMailbox

You can refer the script from this blog

Here is the PowerShell script for this

 


Function Update-GroupImage($GroupName,$PicturePath)
{
#Connect Excahnge online Powershell
$UserCredential = Get-Credential
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://outlook.office365.com/powershell-liveid/?proxyMethod=RPS -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $Session
#Upload Group image
Set-UserPhoto -Identity $GroupName -PictureData ([System.IO.File]::ReadAllBytes($PicturePath)) -Confirm:$false -GroupMailbox
Write-Host "$($GroupName) image was updated successfully"
}
Update-GroupImage -GroupName "Groupname@tenantname.com" -PicturePath "C:\Pictures\Groupimage.Jpg"
