Remember expand/collapse contact groups
The new contact list is now live and it has the option to expand and collapse contact groups. However when I restart teams the are all expanded again.
It would be better if Teams remembered when I collapse a group. then I can for example hide groups of contacts I don't use as often.

How about making it so your Teams Chat "sub-groups" will STAY condensed when invoked by the user?
Currently, you can manually go through your contact list and CONDENSE the sub-groups down. However, if Teams is shutdown and restarted, the contact list comes back with all of your SUB-GROUPS expanded again. VERY IRRITATING.

Agreed. Why have a collapse and expand when they don't stay collapsed or expanded?
I was searching for how to collapse all as default, thinking surely there is a way. Till I found this as first hit on google.
What a poor product not to be able to do this.
However, I do feel much better now thinking me with 15 groups to collapse each time is easy considering other people here.
Definitely staying away from teams shifts is on the table.
My office just moved to MS Team from Skype and I am used to having my contact groups collapsed unless I need to contact someone in that group. Is that functionality on the road make for development?
My team supports 21,000 users and we are moving over the Teams from Skype for Business. We have piloted about 100 people so far and more than half have found this a MAJOR annoyance. Personally, I had 120 groups in Skype and each had about 8-10 per group. A huge problem for me, I can not migrate my groups from SfB to Teams. How on earth am I supposed to find time to re-find and re-group my 1500 contacts in group. This is going to be a major issue going forward.
how did they release this half-baked software missing basic functionality? there is no way to customize the interface as far as i can find.

Please, fix this! It has been almost 2 years that this was requested... and people still demanding. So, please listen to the voice of your users.
Yes It would make life much easier to have them collapsed at all times!
Please change this!!

Please pretty please FIX THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is Sooooooooooooooo Annoooooooooooooying!!!!!!!!
WE MUST have the capability to collapse all and expand all AND the default should be to collapse all not expand all or to have the ability for it to remember the group tree as we left it (better yet).
Please also install this function in the Teams iOS app.
Yes, I agree.
Please fix this ASAP.
fully support that request : incredible that MS has not thought about that before
This is an old post. I have this issue now, is it still an outstanding issue such that the lists are always expanded? :(
I have a lot of contacts with a lot of different groups, this would be VERY usefull.
