Drag and drop Contacts from one group to another
You should be able to Drag and drop Contacts from one group to another and Alt/Option Drag and drop to copy a contact from one group to another.
This is an instinctual activity so would be of great benefit to many users for you to implement this. Thanks.
This would be a very helpful feature to manage contacts and groups. Please add this feature to Teams.
How is this not supported? Why are companies moving to such a limited system? Skype for Business was SO much better! Please allow intuitive management of the UI!

Unbelievable that this is not supported. MS, please do something about it!
This goes to tell how Microsoft is actually not using their own software. Missing this functionality in 2020 is insanely great stupidity.
To move contacts from one group to another group, touch and hold a contact. 2. Touch and hold the edit icon that is available next to the contact name. Drag and drop the contact in your desired group.
Go vote for this post about the same idea. The more votes in one place, the better! (though it's been on the backlog for nearly a year, so... don't hold your breath)
This functionality is essential to make Teams contacts friendlier to navigate

Allow drag and drop contacts from one group to another in MS Teams.
This is a complete nightmare.. the simple fact that I can't intuitively manage and interface with my contacts list is unbelievable. The method listed about doesn't exist on my version of Teams.
I can't create a filter for contacts, I can't arrange them in any order, I can't sort them by status, whereas with Skype, all that was possible. Skype was very easy to use and most of the features you would need are very easy to use and find.
Please start with the user interface and work backwards! We are being forced by our organisation to migrate to Teams. A lot of users have been holding off.
Please implement this very basic feature!
Together with the possibility of renaming external contacts with user-friendly names: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/37647307-external-contacts-not-displayed-with-friendly-nam
Otherwise it makes no sense to even start using the contact organizer in Teams...

i am surprised and frustrated that this doesn't already exist. Now I have to delete and re add quite a few contacts.. I would have thought this would be a fairly basic feature
This is a much needed feature , disappointed with Teams for missing this out.
This needs to be addressed as the UI is not user friendly. No Drag and Drop in teams?? This is a painful process
Simon Jones commented
This is Fundamental UI Behaviour that is missing.
I can drag a contact, I see a Drag-Copy mousepointer, but no drop target is active on the other contact groups. What is the point of being able to drag if you can't drop?
Also, why can't I drag to rearrange the contact groups? There is no means of changing the order of the groups. Favourites is ALWAYS at the top followed by your groups in alphabetical order. Do I REALLY have to name my most used group "1 Work" to make it come to the top? In 2020?
Another missing piece of standard user interface behaviour.
I have found a few basic things in Teams not implemented so far and for so long. I see the same issue, i.e. the drag and drop" raised as recent as April 2020 and dating back to Jan 2019 in this forum. If this product cannot out-rival Skype in the basic features, (a) we are disappointed (b) not a good way of branding a new product (c) at the least, Teams should identify new features and a time frame for implementation. This would allow us to decide if it is the opportune time now to migrate. We all remember how Microsoft duped/forced us to switch over to W10 with so many bugs floating around a few years back and gave headaches to countless people. It is in the best interests of Microsoft not to create disappointed users! and surely this pays in the long run.
We should be able to add a group chat name group to the contacts l
ist? Can this be done?
And -- the drag and drop instructions above do not work. Combined with a prompt for "Copy" but then it won't paste. Brutal. I have hundreds of contacts and need to move them around depending on the project.
What the heck. I expected like-for-like with Skype, and I added all my contacts in a big bunch expecting to drag them where I need them -- and -- CAN'T. Who the heck missed this - and it's been noticed FOR OVER A YEAR.... since Jan 2019 on this thread. C'mon people!!!
