How can we make Teams better?

Create a Microsoft Team based on a Office 365 Group created in Yammer

Office 365 Groups is supposed to be a single definition for a Group across all Office 365 services. However, Microsoft Teams cannot be based on Office 365 Groups created in Yammer. Please fix this so that Yammer Groups and Microsoft Teams are more tightly integrated. Fragmentation of Office 365 Groups will result otherwise.

        I've just come across this. This is a massive barrier for us for adoption and our customers. Please fix.

        I feel like Teams has all the things that Yammer's new group feature was SUPPOSED to have (files in sharepoint, chat, planner) - I'm so confused about why O365 is introducing a new thing instead of just fixing the old one and having a new interface. I really hope they get on this fast!

        This is possible today with groups created via Exchange. Same rule should apply for groups created via Yammer.
