Invite / Add Distribution List to Scheduled Meeting Invite
Currently unable to add DLs to the 'Invite People' field when creating a new / scheduled Teams meeting.
Would like to add a DL to a Teams meeting instead of adding people one by one.

I tried to vote and got as far as entering my email address and now advised I have voted! In case you're interested I intended to vote yes to adding distribution lists to Teams Calender. The times I will want to use the features in teams is when I have 60+ invites. Won't be looking at Teams until this is available.

This is the 1 feature that is stopping a couple of my clients from leaving zoom and going to Teams. They need to be able to easily send a teams meeting to distribution lists. when its 5 people individually is fine. When its over 20 not so much. When its over 75 its not even an option.

Yes Please, that would be a massive time saver

Require this feature very much else it would be treated as half hearted development of Teams.
This feature mandatory to add in teams, its very difficult to add more than 100 people,
request to Microsoft please add it.

Will this feature be added to Teams? I will be using Zoom until then, including a lot of others from my organization.

This feature will be great to have it on Teams!

Per cortesia permettere di aggiungere elenchi di mail separati da ; come in Outlook
I understand that you can create a Teams meeting to invite all members in Teams' Calendar without need to enter members email addresses under "Add required attendees" and then select a Channel where all members have access on it.
However, what if the meeting involves external parties and we definitely do not allow them enter one of our Channel? In such case and with current Teams function, i have to type all members' email address or name + external parties' email addresses to invite for a Teams meeting which not being held under any Channel. And I even can't to copy the email addresses from Email Distribution group names > Expand it > copy and paste into " Add Required Attendees" field. It doesn't support such format. This is really suffering.
Now, I have to pre-type my members' email addresses in a notepad or Wiki to ease my life. Sounds stupid for me of doing that.
I really hope Microsoft can allow us to select Email Distribution group which created in AD or mail-enabled security group in Teams Meeting's attendees.
Even the workaround posted below for using Outlook and a teams tab doesn't work on a Mac because the Teams button doesn't exist. Tried typing a couple of names into a Teams invite and then copy pasting to see what format separate addresses are in. BUT it doesn't even allow a select all and copy in the "add required attendees" field. Is this backwards stepping functionality deliberate?
I can't add a Channel from Outlook & I can't add a DL from Teams....no win situation
So everyone is used to the distribution list names and wants to use them in Teams as well to invite groups of people into calls.... why this has not been added from the beginning is a great question but please quickly add this feature.

Microsoft, please prioritize development of this feature! We recently deployed teams and everyone is reverting to o365 Calendar invites because they have to retype everyone's individual email. Ridiculous to not include this basic feature at launch.
