-HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled = true when created from Teams?
A recent update has changed -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled from default false to default true when Office 365 group is created by Teams. I would like an option for the user who creates the team to set this value upon creation. Our users need to use the O365 group as well as the team created in Teams. With this value set to true they cannot use the email functionality of the O365 group unless I use powershell to change the value every time someone creates a new team in Teams.
This post was created because of a suggestion from support and the information in this thread: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Teams-do-not-create-365-group/m-p/205983/thread-id/14745

Please provide a setting in the management UI to enable/disable. This is a decision that should be easily made by an admin. Please bring it back !!!

This option must be enabled again, please. Unless define exactly where can we use a common inbox for the team.
Would love to see the visibility feature back - so HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled:False AND
HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled:False OR then display a DL choice option when the TEAMS space is created
Having this feature back prevents users from having to use an other applet to create a DL and keeps the starting point with MS Teams.

having this back avoids us to start from a different applet than TEAMS to have a DL created.

Newly created TEAM/GROUP should always show in Exchange Search by Default if I am a Member or Owner.

Please add a toggle in the admin console. We've rolled out Teams and it's gaining traction. "Some" teams would like the Outlook group to have a shared department calendar. Creating a toggle in the Teams Admin console would allow this ability with ease.
**** still isnt fixed. Pfff
Please add a radio button!
I'm not sure why Microsoft thought hiding the group from Exchange was a good idea since it automatically removes access to the group's calendar along with everything else. Many of our users are not aware of this being by design and that they can request having the group unhidden and now resort to creating calendars on SharePoint, which of course are missing all of the features the group calendar offers. All around, this is creating more administrative work than before.

How can we do now for cross-collaboration from Team to Team.
We used to explain that sharing a file to another team is quite easy, the O365 groups benefit from an email adresse we can used in SharePoint (soon in Teams I hoped.......). But now I don't know how to do .... filling 40 names each time ? No sense

I don't mind the calendar being hidden by default, but why on earth (as an end user/ team member) can I not add/show the group calendar in my Outlook client? I should not have to go through the Admin to get this fixed.
Just spent a year training users to use Teams as their first go-to for groups to get everyone on board with Teams and channels as a concept and now this idiocy!
Look...if you want to kill off Outlook and Exchange and roll email capabilities into Teams, I am all for it! Just don't kill our ability to sell this to the rank and file end users. They're the ones signing the checks.
I not understand what is the reason that is disable by default. We are new users for this tools and unfortunately I don't have admin access to reenable it by powershell.
That is make sense avaialble to choose in the Teams to create team group
I doubt the MSO 365/MS Teams engineers actually use their products, or that anyone in MS departments/divisions uses them. This explains why this feature was turned off. Please restore the option -HiddenFromExchanageClientsEnabled=false, and/or be able to change this value from the Admin Center. ~Audrone Matutis

Hidden by default is not ideal, it should default to not hidden, and have a toggle in the UI to hide it if you want to. The thing I find most annoying about the group being hidden is that it prevents easy uploading of attachments from Outlook - the "upload" option is great for groups that aren't hidden. Users either have to sync libraries to their Desktop (not practical if you belong to lots of teams, and not practical when working from several different devices), or manually copy and paste the library URL (not easy for non-technical user) or save to desktop and manually upload via the Teams app, or copy the email address for a particular channel and forward the email to that. None of these options are easy and it makes it hard for users to do the right thing.

Please revert the changes,
as we need that value to be false in this attribute.

Please provide toggle in the Teams Team Settings for Team Owners to choose whether to unhide the Group calender or not.

I agree that there needs to be some sort of toggle to unhide groups.
