azure – Turning off email notifications for Office 365 Groups

We need to start using “unified groups” in Office 365/Azure AD for an intranet project that uses Azure AD as the identitiy provider. We want communication to stay in the platform, and what we don’t want is our 200 odd users receiving personal inbox emails every time an event is created in the Calendar for the Office 365 Groups they are members of. Or digest style emails of new documents added to the sharepoint doc library.

Basically ZERO notifications in their personal mailbox. Our intranet platform will do enough notifying as it is.

So as far as I can see, in the O365 Admin Center, there is the “Send copy of group conversations and events to group members” setting – which is off by default.

But when a member is added to the group, the group appears in their Outlook automatically and for the group settings there is this “Follow in Inbox” section which is set to “Only replies to you and events” by default.

See the screenshots below. What is the relationship between these two?

Outlook group settings O365 Admin group settings

Is there a way, using PowerShell or other means, to change the per user setting in Outlook to “No email or events” for all members of existing groups? Or set it as the default setting for all new members of the specific groups? Or better still, a way to turn it off at the whole tenancy in one swift action?

If this is the wrong place to ask, please direct me to the correct SE site.

office 365 – Can i reference a user/group inside SharePoint if our admin hide them from the AD global address list

Our system admin wants to hide some users/groups from the AD global address list to prevent those users from showing when sending emails through outlook. so my question is if we can still reference (add inside SharePoint group + assign the user inside a people/group column) users/groups inside SharePoint online sites, if our admin hide them from the AD global address list?

Office 365 Privacy Settings and Telemetry

I need some help/advice on which telemetry settings to enable/disable in Office365 and registry to maintain a reasonable level of privacy while not breaking functionality. I am not a security/privacy expert but I do know that since Office365 is more cloud based, turning off telemetry settings may reduce functionality and I don’t want that. Just basic privacy.

  1. Send personal information to Microsoft to make improvements to Office.

In Office 2016, you could disable sending personal information to Microsoft by unchecking the option in File – Options – Trust Center – Trust Center Settings – Privacy Options but is missing in Office 365. What happened to this setting? Should I disable through registry editor or group policy editor?

  1. Send Office Feedback (a.k.a. Send a Smile) regarding positive/negative experiences when using Office along with a desktop screenshot. Any harm in disabling?

  2. Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) — What is it? It seems like it isn’t relevant to new versions of Office. If it is, should it be disabled?

  3. Office Telemetry Dashboard and Office Telemetry Log — What is this for? Brief reading suggests they are relevant only for organizations. Are they important for individual users? Are they enabled by default or should be disabled?

  4. Is there any need to enable File Obfuscation?

  5. Anything else that should be disabled?

microsoft office – Can I use Power Apps with users that sign in from B2C?

I’m a little confused about power apps and the pricing. Suppose I want to create a dog walking website and app and in there have a form connect to the Common Data Service (or other storage).

  • Is this possible to accomplish without having to pay a monthly per customer charge? I don’t want to add $15 per customer as one can imagine?

If Power Apps is used in corporate scenarios, I can see how they can charge that much per seat… it’s like InfoPath on the server with maybe Dynamics.

SharePoint Office 365 Edit Item List

I have a SharePoint list in Office 365 that is created using an app created with Power Apps.

Each item is a request sent by an user. Thus, some fields are automatically generated that are like “Created by”, “Created (date)” and sequential ID, etc.

The thing is that there are some requests that I need to modify manually but when I go to the list page, I can’t edit those fields, by using the quick edit view (they appear in grey). They don’t appear in the edit form view. See images below:

Is there any way to modify those fields on certain IDs manually?
