Mass add users to a channel or team
Please add mass add users to a channel or team.
Like we use on other Office 365 services. email@domain;email@domain and (if possible) @everyone something like that.
I'm using and loving Microsoft Teams :-)
Thanks a lot.
Hi folks, we are collecting feedback on this so we can determine prioritization and user need.
Please comment in the thread below about how this affects you, how you currently add members, and who you think would benefit from this in your organization.
Mass user addition to Teams/Channel and group expansions (same as in Skype) if available will help users a lot and administrative tasks as well. This is becoming very important for my users. Also if a DL can be used to give users membership for a Teams/Channel would help to manage user access when they change projects or departments. Is there any roadmap for this in upcoming Teams features?
I used the group option in S4B by selecting that email group then added to contacts, this gave me a section titled the group name, drop down to see everyone. Then selected user to chat with. That feature is not available and might help with starting group teams or chats also
Please add a feature to mass add members to a team, maybe through a CSV file.
I want to quickly start group chats by copying the addresses in an email message and pasting them into a "Add people" interface in a 1:1 chat.
Please make the Teams "Add people" interface smart enough to parse this format! :-)
🚀 I just implemented this feature into the following Chrome extension => https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/refined-microsoft-teams/bipffdldhfhcecjhcgklheahpkocojfk

Please *do not prioritize this*. This is very simple to funnel users into a Team from PowerShell cmdlet Add-TeamUser and take input from CSV, Windows AD, or a range of other sources.
This feature is an absolute must; how can this still not be a priority?
Searched when I couldn't work out how to do this... to find it's not been implemented. Allow copy/paste of a group of names from your own products - Outlook email or a calendar listing. Even allowing plain text with a semicolon separated listing would be satisfactory.

I use Contacts - Groups to have quick view on the availability of a group of people. Having to add one person at the time is a pain.
Would like to be able to add multiple users and Outlook distribution lists
Tetsuo Kawakami commented
I would like add members from contact group of outlook 20**.
And to meetings. This one by one thing is torturous.

batch adding users from a csv list please
Ivan Gallo commented
adding users from a csv list of emails, or any other mass load mechanism would really help. The current mechanism is really preventing migration from other existing collaboration tools
Keith J La Plain commented
The current mechanism is miserable and will require me to spend many hours entering names!
I have a team of 180 and am holding back creating a team for all of them...i really need this feature!
we need this feature please.
Team owners need that. It should not be moved to Office365 admins or people can manage user groups as this would organizationally complicate things. There are very often cases where you have list of new members for your team, and it would be easy just to paste them into the add member field. BTW, this is how it done in most other MS programs, also in SharePoint which is underlying Teams AFAIK.
This would be EXTREMELY helpful. We're getting ready to rollout Teams agency wide, this would make it easier.
Would also be nice to add groups to Chat for our entire agency.

I just wasted a lot of time adding 104 members to a team. Searching one at a time is inefficient. Why no copy/paste lists in the admin portal?

Someone who thinks logical really needs to be part of the development team. When you create a product like this it should have basic functions such as adding user and groups, deleting users or groups, retention policies for all messages including activities, shared team calendars, restricting channels to user or groups of users, and customizing the default General channel with useful information.
