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.
Thank you for your feedback and comments! The team is looking into how best to do this. We will post an update here as we have more to share.
Wish this was an available feature when we had migrated from slack to teams. Hopefully this DL integration will be dynamic; by that I mean as more users are added to email@example.com DL in 365, they'd automatically be added into a public channel etc.

Can you provide some details of the feature that is being added? Currently a system distribution group(DG) can be used to "invite" users to a team. I have encountered issues adding a DG that contain other system DG. I have not found clear documentation about adding bulk users and how users are added.
I'm struggling to add a distribution group. It's been created in outlook and won't appear in Teams. Any guidance on how to do this is greatly appreciated, :)

This is really needed, please add this feature at the earliest
Please add mass import of people to teams
Hal Clive commented
For those looking for a resolution to this, a workaround would be to mass add people to the underlying Group in, for example, Outlook.
Of course, it would be great if we could do this in the Teams client - after all, one of the main advantages of Teams is that you can do everything you do as a team without being forced to jump between different tools...

When will the feature ready?
Silvio Katzmann commented
A temporary solution would be a Flow ->
from excel file on onedrive
for each row
Any updates? When will we have the ability to bulk-add users (either by pasting multiple e-mail addresses or uploading a CSV/Excel file) to a Team?
Nice blog. Found this while searching through

This is great the first time we setup a team but our DL changes periodically as new employees are hired and we need a way to add these new employees to all the relevant teams.

It would be helpful to handle local DLs (i.e., those that are not in AD). If there is no Exchange/Office DL in AD, then the only option seems to be adding one at a time.

I seem to be unable to add a distribution list. When I entered the email address for the mailing list, the dialogue said "We didn't find any matches", and the 'Add' button was disabled. All our DLs start with a # symbol, is that a factor?

If I use Exchange Online powershell to bulk import members to the O365 group will those users get notified that they've been invited to the Team?
We use MS365 Education for our school. I want to bulk add student names without having to create a distribution list for each class as this puts their email addresses into a public space for all staff to view. Is there a way for me to bulk add them without adding them into a distribution list?
Chris Leonard commented
Can you do this by adding a dynamic distribution list? All new employees are automatically added to our company email list, but we couldn't get them automatically added to an "all company team."
The DL support needs to support nested DLs.
I need to use security groups from company Active directory that is synced to our tenant. Is it possible?
Do DL updates automatically perpetuate to the team? If not then this story isn't fully wrapped up. I've been feeling this already where we've added a DL to our team, but anyone new we have to remember to add--and remove if people leave.
