Why can’t I add a group to a Team? #M365AMA

In this episode, the #M365AMA panel discusses the following community question:

“I have a question regarding “Adding a Group” to a Team. From what I know you need to be Owner of the Team that you are adding the group to. Also, users in that group is added one by one, so it is not dynamic ? We have several Security groups, Mail enabled Distributions list etc synced to o365. What is the best way to do this … the same group is also needed to add as a group permission to a SharePoint site. I would like to use On-Prem created type of group synced to o365, but what is the best way here ?”

Some relevant notes/links shared by the team:

  • Per Shari, personally, I’d like some more clarification of how the security groups between the SharePoint site and the Teams. I doesn’t seem to be synchronize and the roles of “owner” and “member” seem mushy.
