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.
Tetsuo Kawakami commented
I would like add members from contact group of outlook 20**.
And to meetings. This one by one thing is torturous.
Michael Tumminello commented
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?
Chris Cline commented
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.
Is it possible to add a single user across multiple teams at one time, rather than going team by team adding the user many times over?
David Elliott commented
I struggle to understand how this was not on the mandatory feature list when skype was removed from the O365 online offering...
Please add this ASAP
PLEASE add functionality to copy/paste a list of names to add to a team. We are constantly adding/removing people from our groups and this functionality would make it SO MUCH faster!
When I try to add a DL as a member in Teams, I received the following, "we didn't find any matches. talk to your it admin about expanding the scope of your search". These are AD DLs in the GAL. So if it says it can add a DL, why can't it...?
Typing @ to select the name is a challange. It would be helpful to be able to select multiple people when adding a comment.
Please add a way of copy pasting in "add member"
One at a time in a corporate listing is mind numbing :-(
All the documentation saids, this feature works and here is how you do it... Why is this not fixed?
Being able to use e.g. an export file when adding multiple members at a time would be extremely helpful. Please prioritize.
Agree that it would be extremely useful to have a mass add feature, as adding colleagues one by one to channels/teams is time consuming.
