Import Groups & Contacts from Skype for Business
With the integration of Skype's features in Microsoft Teams, is there a way to export/import your Contacts and Groups from Skype into Microsoft Teams?
For someone that has been using Teams for over a year now, this would be very useful tool.
As to perform this task of creating Groups, adding the people to them both internal and external manually would take several hours.
Let me know if I can assist.
I'm not sure do you speak about Skype for Business online or on-premises. But have a look this:
The time and energy put into creating SfB groups has paid off in a lot of time saved. I am dreading the hard deadline because I know it will involve a huge time investment.
Please work on integrating this feature to save us all from the anger this will cause!
The lack of this feature is the main reason why my organisation has delayed the transition from Skype to Teams.
A (at least one-time migration) is absolutely important for people to accept the switch from Skype to Teams! Please create a solution to this. Actually this shouldn't be a too complicated thing to do...
We are still looking for an effective way to get contacts to sync from Skype for Business / Active Directory into Microsoft Teams? It appears that some users are seeing more contacts show up in Teams where others have to manually add any contacts they need in Teams.
Any advice on how to get this transitioned?
This seems like such an obvious miss. Isn't the whole idea to transition from SfB to Teams?

We also have users whose contacts where not transferred.
+10 .....should sync automatically without requiring export/import but its strange its missing

We have several users that are frustrated by the mismatch between contacts groups in Teams and Skype for Business.
The especially don't like having to duplicate their efforts in managing them separately.
An option in Teams to import/sync Contacts from Skype would answer this complaint nicely.
Get your **** toghether and fix this
this alone will make me switch to open source. dont care about money ,just the arrogance or incompetence..
Drag and drop functionality from either from outlook or Skype business (Single contact or multi contacts)
We would really like to see a way of importing external contacts from Outlook into Teams.
Teams is extremely frustrating in that you can't import your Skype contacts, can't sort the few contact you can find, and no way to contact anyone external!
Could we wait on switching to this horrible software until they make basic functions like this work?
The worst UI ever, and it seems there isn't a tool to export/import contacts and groups from Skype for bussiness.
I need the ability to import contacts from Skype. I Please make this happen!

Not able to bring in external (guest) contacts. It just won't work, I've made sure they were contacts. I worked fine in Skype

over 150 users affected in our organization. This is a "must be" feature.

I Think that will be easy to allow action "insert multiple user" on favorites...
If will be allowed it will be easy to copy list of user from Skype for Business and inser it on "add name" (best ... names).
