When you configure Group By Columns by using calculated values on a Microsoft SharePoint Online site, you may experience one or more of the following issues: 
  • Items that already exist on the list aren't grouped in the same section as new items.
  • Duplicate groupings are present for both old and new items.
  • Items that exist in the list don't appear in the group that they're configured for.


This issue occurs after you receive the latest SharePoint Online service update. The product team is working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
