Make it easy to disable Office 365 group creation in One Drive

The PowerShell to turn this off is extremely complicated and requires most companies a support call to assist them with it. This feature creates a site collection and is very powerful and should rarely be accessible by a standard user. Please put a setting on the OneDrive administration panel to turn off Office 365 group creation except for Global Administrators.

    Surely there is a way to hide this option without having to disable everyone's ability to create a group.
    Add the option in OneDrive setup to hide the create a site option in the same way we can hide it in SharePoint. Group sites are being created and then abandoned creating lots of junk.

    Yes - please do, this is a back door to a feature that we have disabled.

    Yes, it makes sense to include this as a feature of either OneDrive admin portal or SharePoint Portal. In fact it would be good to have Office365 Groups admin portal.
