Owners are only added as owners and not as members on Office 365 groups.
When you create a team from the Microsoft Teams admin center, owners are only added as owners and not as members on Office 365 groups.
A group with 0 members is created, which causes the planner to fail.
We work around this by adding the owner as a member from the Microsoft 365 admin center.
Teams created from the Teams app have Owners added to Owners and Members when viewed on Office 365 Groups.
No errors in the planner tab.
I want you to improve this behavior.
As of 2018, Microsoft agents are aware of the community.
Seeing different M365 Groups behave differently when mastered in different workloads seems kinda odd. The behavior should be consistent irrespective of workloads and owners should be automatically added as members and get emails sent to the group.
I agree, this is bad! Owners should be added automatically to the mailer Group! Microsoft, please fix issue.
A user that creates a Team is assigned the role of an Owner. Then adds other users to the teams as Members. The Owner should get Team notification through the Office 365 Group email like everyone else! I am shocked that this is not working. Clearly an oversight.
