    I agree! We're trying to decide whether to use Teams or Slack at work and this is the first thing the pro-Slack people mention as Slack does it and it makes it so much more user friendly. I'm honestly surprised this wasn't part of Teams to begin with.

    AGREE!! We often need to "FIND" someone (anyone) from a group - say Data Center Infrastructure or Network Infrastructure.. I have Contact groups built so I can easily see presence for all. NOT having the ability to share those contact groups with the rest of my team is crazy. Even if it means sending a .ini file or "importing" or whatever.. SOMETHING to share the contact groups needs to be possible.

    100% agree, I would like as an admin to setup groups like "Accounts", "IT", "BDM's" etc, and then added contacts to those groups which is automatically shown to my users.

    The user interface is not intuitive for my users, they go to chat and there is noone to chat to, they don't think to start searching for the persons name up the top, or to create a group and then click on 3 dots to then add a name and go searching. Not to mention 95% of my users couldn't be bothered doing it so just don't add any names.

    Arve, I do not necessarily think it is the same. In things like Zoom - you can add contacts to a group e.g. IT. When users of the organization log in - they will see this group and the contacts in it without having to manually add contacts.
