    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.

  • Paul Allard commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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.

    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, last thing I want to see is name of former boss who verbally abused me on the regular. Get rid of it!

  • BBB commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It seems to have some kind of algorithm. The top 5 people appearing on my screen are the ones I dislike most.

    Until whomever's darling 'suggested contacts' is no longer works at Microsoft, we probably need some sort of a workaround. Isn't there a registry entry to remove it?

  • Kat Seaton commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Many of the suggestions in my chat window are personnel that are no longer employed in the company. Many of whom have not been employed for years. (Many that were not employed with the company before we switched to office365)

  • James commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Both people showing in my suggested contacts are no longer with my organization, in fact, one of them left 10 months ago. The other only left 6 months ago. It's really silly that I'm seeing them appear there, it's a dumb oversight by Microsoft to allow this to persist.
