Allow rearranging contacts and groups
The new contact list is now live but it's missing the ability to rearrange contacts and groups by drag and drop like you can now do with teams and recent conversations.
I have quite a few contacts and large groups so sorting them would be very useful.
This feature was in Skype for Business. Right-click then "Move group up" / "Move group down", on the keyboard [Alt] + [up arrow] or [Alt] + [down arrow], or simply drag and drop.
I call this an essential feature.

This would be a great feature.
This feature must be added of course.
Workaround : Groups are sorted by alphabetical order, so rename group sby starting with a number :
It would also be preferable to be able to choose between a list of contacts (such as in contacts) or the block view of contacts (such as in speed dial).

This is really must have feature for almost everybody.
Please add this to the teams ASAP.
Sorting by Status is sorely missed by many of our users.

Par for the course for this slap-together product. Jesus, if you're going to take SFB away from us, at least give us the same functionality.
Someone asked if MS even checks any of these forums since this question/suggestion/request has been around for a year or so. I'd ask does MS even use their products because if they did I think they would of realized that this functionality would be really nice to have. Just my two cents.
This is much needed fucntionality that should be incorporated into Teams
does microsoft even check these threads?

Seriously, this should be a priority. I can't believe this suggestion is over a year old.
Insane that Teams is missing such basic functionality. What a garbage program.
Why can't I remove suggested contacts and other contacts from the speed dial list? Why can't I rearrange the order the groups are shown in? It's not even shown in alphabetical order...
Contact management with drag and drop is desperately needed...this is so basic how could you have missed this. Also need to be able to add/adjust info fields so you can see company name and other info...cant understand how this could be missing.

Please add the option to drag and drop contacts in different groeps
Please add the drag and drop feature to chat contacts. If I want to add a new contact to a group, it would be REALLY easier to just do it like this.
I have a 1000 contacts in my speed dial ( company default)
I want to remove them all
i didn't find a way to apply action / removal to multiple contact selection
shall i do it one by one????
Teams Chat - Guys this tool is lacking the MOST BASIC CHAT PRODUCTIVITY FEATURES. We desperately need and Require the ability to collapse/expand groups and drag and drop contacts one to another. We also need a separate breakout screen for chat only vs hunting around in the app. You all must not be using your own cooking or you would be equally annoyed as your users. These functions are Chat 101 functions
In addition to being able to reorder, please default the groups closed...or keep the prior display (what is closed and open) from the last view. Again, this is how Skype works.
This is a very basic feature thats missing. We are migrating from skype for business to Teams and this really isn't good enough.
