  • Improvement of search functionality

    Searches are no longer case-sensitive.
    • In the admin portal, this includes the following types of searches:
      • Typing the name of a group in the Group name search fields.
      • Clicking the filter icon on the Groups or Activities tabs and typing text in the search fields.
      • Typing the name of an owner or group member in the Display name search field when viewing group details
      • Typing a service name in the Service name search field when viewing group details.
    • In the self-service portal, this includes the following types of searches:
      • Typing the name of a group in the Group name search fields.
      • Clicking the filter icon and typing text in the search fields.
  • Creation of Group Privacy Rules

    This setting is part of the group category and defines the visibility of a group on the Gallery page in the self-service portal. It also defines the groups that users can view and request to join via the New RequestJoin Group feature on the self-service portal.
    • If a group is assigned a group privacy rule that is set to private, it is not visible to users in the self-service portal who are not owners or members of the group. If a group is assigned a group privacy rule that is set to public, all users can view the group in the self-service portal.
    • You can add exceptions to group privacy rules that allow specified groups in a tenant in an organization to be exempt from the group privacy rule setting assigned to them. For example, if you create groups using a category that has a private group privacy rule, you can create exceptions within the group privacy rule to allow one or more groups to be public.
      • Exceptions to group privacy rules can be made for groups by group name, group owner, and/or group member.
      • Exceptions can be added for groups in different tenants to one group privacy rule, which allows you to use one group privacy rule to specify exceptions for all tenants.
      • Multiple rules can be added within one exception. The default operator between rules within one exception is "AND".
      • Multiple exceptions can be added to one group privacy rule. The default operator between exceptions is "OR".
