Planner is creating automatically a Group in Outlook

I created the first Planner Entries and noticed that they show up in Outlook for the Members.

Can this be disabled?

    How the Group is created determines that.
    So with Planner, Sharepoint, or outlook etc... The Group should be visible.
    The associated Group created with a Team will not be.

    You'll have to hide it afterwards:

    Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity *** group email address*** -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true  


    Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity *** group email address*** -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled $true  

    Depending on how you want to hide it

    Ok, So I need to do it for each created Group Mailbox. There is no "default" Setting available I could change?
