    Re O365 Groups Admin Functions- We have found a stable solution for backing up Groups- but wanted to see if there might be a better way. I first gathered an isolated list of Groups via Ge-UnifiedGroup command in PowerShell. This was a better option since in EXO you see all distribution list alongside Groups. I added each URL in a new DocAve Plan but ran into permissions errors running backups on groups that I was not a specified admin for. I then had to go into each Group and add an admin of who's credentials we have stored in our backup system. This was a pain.
    I'm wondering. Is there a command available to bulk add admins? Or would you just recommend making it standard policy if you create a group, to add specified admin?
    Thanks!

    Caitlin have you tried added owners to a group using this command: "Add-UnifiedGroupLinks -LinkType Owner " ? Yes you can make this a standard policy or also create automation via a script to add a group owner
