    • Use the graph to improve navigation of work done in a group of Outlook 2016

      When a group is selected, a navigation pane is shown that always shows: "Conversations, Files, Calendar, Notebook" (image : https://snag.gy/DFPkzU.jpg ) but this doesn't represent what is actually happening in the group. Sometimes groups use Teams, sometimes SharePoint, sometimes Yammer, sometimes a calendar, sometimes Planner. Microsoft Graph API is able to provide at least some insight into what components of the group is initialized, and how much work has been put into each part of a group. This should be used to power navigation of groups, so I can see where the work is happening.

      • AVOIR ACCES AUX PROPRIETES DU CONTACT EN CLIQUANT SUR SA FICHE pour modifier

        actuellement c impossible, on ne peut accéder aux propriétés du contact que lorsque il apparaît dans la liste dispo à partir de groupe insérer des membres SAUF QUE il n'y apparait pas alors qu'il est enregistré de manière identique aux autres, je voudrai donc essayer de voir et corriger peut être quelque chose MAIS NON çà ne me laisse pas passer.
        DONC rendre l'accès aux contacts simple, comme cela était avec 2003 par exemple.

        • Cut and paste from mail groups to other mail groups

          I understand from my review of the MS knowledge base and from an online chat session that there is no way to cut/copy from one mail list/group and paste into another mail list/group. This would be a very convenient feature. Currently I have a rather large list that has been built up over time. But, it has become too large for my email software (Outlook or my ISP, I don’t know which is the limiting factor), and group emails using this group are now rejected. So I have to create two mail groups from the one. And there doesn’t seem…

            • 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.

              • 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.

                    • 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…

                      • 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!!!

                          If the reading pane is off in Outlook you cannot open Modern Group messages. We would like to be able to double click on group messages to open them in a new window, similar how you can do with mail items.

                                • Option to exclude certain email ids while sending mail to a group

                                  Generally while sending emails to a large group, certain times we would require the mail not to be send to certain email addresses. An alternate would be to expand the group and then exclude the email id. But that would result in time wasting when the group is more than 30 people. The solution could be to have an option to exclude certain email ids from sending mail to groups. The outlook while sending to the group can internally exclude the email ids while sending the mail to the groups.

                                  Sample Use-Case - At times when we send emails to…

                                      • Add option to always BCC group members

                                        Groups are often used for contact lists where it is important to maintain privacy. It would be good to have an option for each group to always BCC members, even if the group is in the To field. The current scenario requires users to remember to put the group in the BCC field every time. An "always bcc" option would prevent mistakes.

                                        • Show Teams Channels in Outlook Groups in Outlook 2016

                                          Presently, the Groups folders only shows conversations in the "General" Teams channel. Please provide functionality to display other channels and their conversations. Also provide the ability to drag/drop move/copy selected messages (single or multiple) from any folder in any store in Outlook to/from a Channel with appropriate confirmation prompts such as, "You are about to move X item(s) to/from 'Group Name/Channel Name'. Is this correct?".
