Microsoft recently announced that beginning on April 13, 2017 an Office 365 group would automatically be created for managers with at least 20 direct reports. Office 365 administrators quickly let Microsoft know that they were unhappy with these forced group creations.
This evening, though, Microsoft released an update to the Message Center that they have changed their original stance. According to the new message below, the feature will not be released as announced. Instead, the feature is going to be rolled to a smaller group for additional testing. Stay tuned to see what the eventual rollout looks like, if it happens at all.
