The option to “discard” suggested contacts in your chat list is rolling out to users. We will be making further changes to make suggested contacts more relevant for new users in the future as well, so marking as partially completed. Thanks for your patience with this one.

Very confusing our organization doesn't NOT want o see a list of names except if in same group membership. Most names appearing do not have a license for Teams

As you can see from the previous comments, no one is looking for improvements to this. It is a useless feature that wastes screen space and is just one more thing we have to avoid accidentally clicking on.
There are no circumstances under which this feature could ever be useful. No one is looking for a third party’s (Microsoft’s) opinion on who they should be talking to within their organization in order to do their job.
option to "discard" specific suggestions? I'd rather be able to just turn it off! I am constantly clicking on the arrow to hide the list so how does an option to discard people who I'm not looking at anyway help me?? I just want to get rid of the clutter all together!
How long we still need to wait?
@alex any news on this?
Daniel Smith commented
My goodness - it's really taken 2 years and 3 months to implement such a basic feature? Good to hear it's finally being worked on though.

Good it is so frustrating having people and teams you don't know don't want to engage with popping up when it starts, what a stupid idea!
The Suggested list includes people who've left my organisation, and whose Azure accounts have been deleted.
Wow! You started working on it only 2 years after first suggestion has been made. The Road Runner would be so proud of you.
And seriously, there are TONS of ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL features waiting to be introduced for YEARS. Are you really OK with that?
Please allow a feature to remove suggested contacts. Absolutely no reason that we should have to have this
Please allow a feature to remove suggested contacts. Why keep indefinitely? There are dozens of reasons to allow users to remove contacts, no reasons to not have the feature and control for the user.
Add the option to remove/hide a suggested contact, this is IMPORTANT! Like others, the user should have the choice to not see the name of someone who has caused harm to them in the past. Seeing a particular name in a suggested contact list gives me panic attacks and I should have the option of blocking that contact, which is available in most other social media platforms.
Yes, I to agree this is un-necessary the option should be to add not remove.

This is very annoying feature and, for me at least, is just screen clutter.
Please provide the option to remove it or have it default (and stay!) collapsed.

Please provide the opportunity to remove this utterly unwanted feature.
Matt Linder commented
Cant believe this is NOT an option, wait yes I can, look who wrote it.
If MS isn't going to fix all the half a__ options missing/broken how about open source teams!
yes please make this an option in the settings

Yes, last thing I want to see is name of former boss who verbally abused me on the regular. Get rid of it!
Mattea Gennell commented
Please provide a feature to remove/turnoff suggested contacts! Thank you
It seems to have some kind of algorithm. The top 5 people appearing on my screen are the ones I dislike most.
