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.
Why is this still a thing that hasn't been fixed. It basically makes me not want to use MS Teams at all.
PLEASE CORRECT THIS! It is 2 years since this got posted & requested

Developers, please correct this. It is a small thing, but it makes for a very frustrating user experience. Even just adding a "Collapse All" button would help.

Its a frustrating users experience. . The choice should be with a user to either expand or condense the favourite groups as needed. Not ideal for big organizations.
This shows the level of thought Microsoft puts in its products and the level of attention paid to customers.
Skype was a great product, Lync and SFB a huge step back, Teams headed to a total failure unable to compete with amateur software.
Every single Microsoft product in the last 10-12 years was a step in the wrong direction.
Keep up the good work!

I guess I'm 2 years late to the party, but still incredible MS has not been able to deliver this functionality at all. With several contact groups it's messy to do a lot of scrolling just to open a chat with the desired contact. Strange, even when SfB and the old Communicator has this.
Agree especially when your contact groups grow see less & less & scrolling more to find your contact your actually looking for

I cannot switch from Skype Business to Teams because of this lack of functionality in teams. If at least it was collapse by default, it would be less time consuming.
Come on, Microsoft
This is such a tiny fix, you can do it!

very unmanageable when you have a lot of groups

So this post is almost 2 years.. and still no fix?
Basic functionallity that was/is available in most chat applications.
Communication and Skype has this.. why not Teams?
This is a desperately needed function!!

Please fix this - this I very difficult for us to use as expected. One reason our organization is still keeping jabber .

That this sort of basic functionality is missing makes Teams a pain to use and means it really is NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE.
Unfortunately, the Contacts tab in chat is completely useless to me and those in my organization right now. I have two dozen contact groups in my list. Having these contacts expanded every time I come back to the contact tab is ridiculous. I need Teams to remember whether each group is expanded or collapsed. Having every team default to expanded every time I come back to the groups list make is unmanageable and unusable.
Company is forcing us to use this junk.. This should be BASIC functionality.. What ****.

If Teams is touted to replace Skype for Business then the developers should audit Teams against Skype functionality. Expanded groups just one of many issues. I like using Teams but we need a little attention to detail from the developers.
Agreed, this is a basic function that's even available in Skype for Business. Teams should build from SFB and expand, not omit functions... Would definitely appreciate this simple yet important option. Otherwise, the contacts become a cluttered mess. Thanks!
This is really frustrating when you have so many groups and contacts. Extra frustrating when even the web version of Teams doesn't have this issue. So why can't this be fixed in the full fat client?
