Answers to top questions:

Thanks for all your comments on last month’s blog!

Q: I cannot change the Microsoft 365 group assigned to my project once I've set the group. Is this correct?

A: Right now, you can’t change the project group once it has been set. This is known functionality, and there are no present plans to change it.

However, when you copy a project, your group is not copied. If you need to assign a new group to a project, the best way to do that is to copy the project & assign the new group.


Q: Can I add projects to private channels in Teams?

A:  Currently, you cannot add projects to private channels as private channels are not integrated with M365 groups.
