The ability of distribution list owners to upgrade the DLs they own to Office 365 Groups is a new Office 365 feature. You’ll begin seeing this new feature today.
This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 72274.
How does this affect me?
In Outlook on the web, distribution list owners will see a list of their eligible distribution lists under the Groups section of the navigation pane on the left. The option to upgrade distribution lists is only available in Outlook on the web and under the following conditions:
- The distribution list must be eligible for update (see which distribution lists can be upgraded).
- The user must be the owner of the distribution list.
- The user must have permissions to create Office 365 Groups.
- We’ll be gradually rolling this out beginning today, and the rollout will be completed over the coming weeks.
