Show o365 groups in the GAL

The default for a microsoft o365 group is to hide it from the global address list. Currently there is no way to change this in the GUI, you need to use a quick and easy powershell command.

First you need to connect to Exchange online

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $Session

Once you connect to exchange online you just need to update the attribute hiddenfromaddresslistenabled

Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "Group Name" -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $false

That’s it once the GAL is rebuilt overnight, you should start seeing it in Outlook.
