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?
What if Microsoft could respond..this is really needed.
Its definitely needed especially with the current sittuation where schools need to move to online.

+1 Please add this useful feature. Unbelievable it has been left off and hasn't been added for years.

This would be an excellent tool to integrate the two MS systems.
This is an important tool that needs to be added to teams. We are moving towards using teams, but use SKYPE for this functionality since it is not available in teams yet.
Add us to that list. This is needed badly. We were ready to move forward with Skype4Business and then decided to hold out for Teams. We have to maintain another 3rd party messaging APP to use alongside teams because the chat functionality is completely disconnected from ORG groups in teams. Distribution groups are needed BADLY for most of US I'd imagine.
This would be extremely beneficial for GSS Americas Customer Service. Please Please ADD soon.

Can somebody enlighten me?
Within Microsoft Teams, if I navigate to Calls -> Contacts, I can see all My Contacts within my Outlook Office365.
Within Microsoft Teams, if I navigate to Chat -> Contacts, I CANNOT see all My Contacts within my Outlook Office365.
This is frustrating for not only me, but my users. There doesn't seem to be a way to change this within Teams Admin either.

WE NEED DL ACCESS IN TEAMS!!!! WORKED GREAT IN S4B BUT WITHOUT THIS ACCESS IN TEAMS, USERS WILL DEFINITELY COMPLAIN THAT THEY NEED TO SPEND TIME CREATING GROUPS AND ADDING USERS TO THEM. WE HAVE 300 EMPLOYEES AND 290 OF THEM WILL DEFINITELY COMPLAIN!!!!!

This is a must have. I'm surprised and disappointed it's not in place already!
PLEASE add this. The fact that it isn't on here is detrimental to my business's communication needs.
Please connect distribution lists between Teams and Outlook.
Please add the functionality of adding distribution groups to contacts in Teams

Please connect Outlook groups with Teams so they are available in both Outlook and Teams.
Definitely needed, pain in the a$% without.
Very needed @ work. This was basic functionality in Skype for Business and in Teams it does not work correctly.
Why maintain groups manually by every user while these groups are already maintained centrally by distribution list owners?
