Importing phone contacts for dialing out from Teams meetings
I've been using Skype for Business in my organization for a couple of years. The major problem that prevents me from switching from SfB to Teams is lack of any easy way to import phone contacts from a file into Teams. I'm used to import .csv files with lists of phone contacts into my Outlook contacts, and they become available for dialing out from SbB meetings. Unfortunately, they aren't available in Teams meetings, and when you need to dial out to five or more phone contacts during a meeting, the meeting becomes a real challenge, not to mention the fact that in SbB meetings all imported phone contacts are displayed by name, which is very convenient, while in Teams you need to paste & copy each phone and the phone numbers, of course, are displayed as nameless numbers, and participants never know who is who.

Teams phone contact list is a mess- not organized, hard to find contacts, no idea where the list of contacts comes from- certainly not my usual list
