In Skype for Business I could add distribution lists to my contacts. It meant that when someone joined the company, they would appear automatically in a user's contacts list as the make up of teams changed while the teams themselves stayed the same.
In Microsoft Teams, contact groups are near useless as they don't do anything other than offer manual sorting which nobody wants to do in this day and age.
Please allow me to add groups of contacts based on Office 365 Groups/Distribution Groups, and also as an admin please allow me to set which contact groups are added to user's Microsoft Teams by default. E.g. There will be a contact group for HR people, a contact group for internal tech support and so on.
Teams and channels are great, but they shouldn't be to the detriment of private chat.
In a large org it is hard to keep up with new employees and transfers. Creating contact groups linked to AD/O365 groups saved me a lot of work in SfB. Teams would be much easier to use with this SfB feature.
Agreed. This is still very annoying. With SfB we never had to worry about finding new people in departments, etc. Teams should at least allow you to create contact groups based on O365 Groups but it would be best if they could be based on AD groups as well.
