Distribution Lists in Teams
In Skype for Business client I can add a Distribution List as a Contact Group.
Can we have this feature in Teams?
our users don't want to move to teams because the lack of this single feature. That's how important it is to them.

From the post below, I also see that DL's can only be added to a "New team" not as a new contact etc.

It would be brilliant to enable distribution lists in teams or something similar where a user could message the distribution list and get an available manager instead of popping from manager to manager to see who is available. I would think this would be integral part of the organizational flow especially since some conversations need to take place privately and not in a channel for all users to see.

If you are looking for adding distribution/security groups and KEEP the group as members then I fully support this idea. It's great you can add members from a distribution group, but very bad that the members will not update when you add members to the distribution group.

When is this feature going to be available in Teams?

Also, they should consider to migrate DL added in contact list when migrating users from SfB to MS Teams.

It is a key feature missing in Teams. To add them one by one, it is a stupid design.
I agree, this is a key piece of functionality in s4b that needs to be added to teams before I can consider replacing s4b with teams. Right now all my distribution lists I have added to s2b show up in teams but they are empty and do not work.
I agree we need to be able to do this, the groups are created and recreating is too time consuming

This is key missing feature before I can even consider using Teams over SfB for chatting. There's no way I will manually create, populate, and maintain groups in Teams.
