  1. Sort Groups messages the same order as the rest of the email

    It is really confusing to have email sorted by newest first, and groups to be sorted by newest last. Please at least make it configurable, and consider make it the default. It is bad enough that email isn't ordered the same way on different devices.

  2. Allow unchecking of "Send a meeting invitation to group members" in Outlook 2016

    In Outlook on the Web, when you enter a new calendar item in a group you have the ability to uncheck "Send a meeting invitation group members". In Outlook 2016 there is not that ability and the groups we have access to with dozens and dozens of members all get spammed with calendar notifications when entering a calendar item into a group calendar using Outlook 2016.

    We would like that ability in Outlook 2016, the same that Outlook on the Web has (to uncheck "Send a meeting invitation group members").

    Thank you.

  3. Improve Ordering Function of Groups in Favorites

    Currently when reordering Groups in the Favorites pane via drag and drop it appears there is no ability to drop a Group between two Groups, but only to top of list. Drag and drop reordering of groups should allow ability to drop a Group between two Groups.

  5. Numbering option for contacts in a contact group.

    Please make a"contact group" number the contacts in it. My internet provider limits the number of contacts to 100 per email. It is time consuming to have to count each contact group. As my contact groups have new people joining and old people asking to get off them it is difficult to keep track of how many contacts are in each group. Also increase the number of member allowed in a Contact Group. The maximum number should be at least as large as the Recipient Limit for Office 365 Business Essentials (500 recipients).

  7. Ability to view junk mail sent to groups

    I have several outlook groups which can be emailed from external senders. I would like to be a able to review the emails that are marked as junk by outlook but I don't see how that can be done.

    There should be a way to review emails marked as junk so we can mark emails that are not junk as 'not junk'.

    Apologies if this suggestion has landed in the wrong category. For context, here's my question in the forum that referred me here:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/oemail-ocleanup/groupmail-where-can-i-view-junk-mail-sent-to-a/8fc11d58-4712-4c33-b201-a9d8a7b1c6c9

  11. Group inbox

    Associate a dedicated Group inbox (like in SharePoint), which we could Cc or Bcc for each email that could interest the Group.

  12. Create email subfolders in Office 365 Groups

    We currently use (mail enabled) Public Folders together with distribution lists to stora all project communication and notify all members.

    The new Office 365 Groups would offer similar functionality, however we are missing ability to create subfolders in Group mailbox to organise the mailbox.

    For example:
    Group "Project X" displays in Outlook as:

    Groups
    >Project X

    Which we would like to organise as following:

    Groups
    > Project X
    >>Client
    >>Subvendors
    >>Internal

    This would also require ability to drag and drop emails inside Group mailbox.

  13. Show me which DL I am part of on an email.

    When I receive an email with multiple DL, Outlook should show me which DL I am part of that is causing me to receive that email. This will cut down on clutter by allowing me remove myself from that DL if I do not want to receive the email.

  16. Distribution Group Properties: Expand Owner list

    . There is a need to be able to see the listing of multiple owners for Distribution/Security Groups within Outlook.
    Exchange provides the means to have multiple owners; So why can’t Outlook integrate the means to view it? Outlook can list the view of multiple members, so in theory it doesn’t seem impossible to implement a change via R&D. It could be tested, if while tested it doesn’t work at least it was tried, right? It seems as though the idea has been rejected via thought, and not testing.
    I know I have been fighting hard for this, but that…

  17. Groups conversation inline thread reply layout

    It would be so much better if the Office 365 group conversation layout were that of a thread with inline replies, for example, I sometimes want to insert a reply right under an other colleagues message, and not at the very bottom of the conversation.

    That would make things much more helpful!

    The Reply button should perform this function as at the moment it is misleading one into thinking that it will reply to the conversation thread when in fact it just replies to the user himself.

    I had a rather embarrassing situation at work today because of this as…

  18. One Click to see all my Office 365 Groups

    One Click Navigation to all my Groups
    I've started to use Office 365 Groups but its a little frustrating that I have to navigate down the left navigation to find my groups, then click on more to get to the one I want. Please create a landing page for all my groups that I can add to my favorites and then click to see all the of them

  19. Hide Groups in Outlook

    It would be nice to hide or remove the "Groups" on the left Tree in Outlook. And to also hide the Groups in the Address Book.

    Note: We use Office 365 with AD Sync. We also use PowerBI Groups which created a whole load of groups. We don't want to see PowerBI groups in Outlook!!!

  20. Add ability to filter/search on Group messages liked or not liked

    In Outlook groups, you can like messages. It would be great if we could search/filter on messages that are liked or not liked.
