Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter)
Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter) ;
At present I have to individually add each and every email Id separately; that's very very time consuming;
I am surprise Microsoft failed to think about this in the first place.
yes, please and asap to save out time and effort:)

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease, as a team lead i need to be able to share info with my team and don't have time to add one by one. I gave up on teams and when have to share a video do so on skype or through snagit app instead. need this asap.
as soon as possible please :)

good idea, takes lots of time to add meny members one by one
I can just agree!

And when you have calmed down about that the Mighty Microsoft cannot work with lists, have you noticed something else?
That the list of Team members is carefully sorted in random order.
Some REALLY advanced guys they got working at Microsoft. As long as you have your Grade 1 certificate they will take you......
Managing teams membership in Teams, is just an absourd waste of time. I have groups and subgroups within gropus and have to schedule meetings for both the general group and the subgropus. I tried to manage this through private channels and for that I had to insert students one by one first in the general group and then again one by one in the private channels for each subgroup (there is no way to select or copy from one list to the other one, which is absurd). I did al this work just to discover that You cannot schedule meetings in private groups!!!!! So in order to schdule meetings I would have to create separte Teams for each soubgroup inserting them again one by one. This is what I call unclever and unnecessary deliberately restrictive software design. Awful!!!
@Microsoft: Please make this happen.
I just wasted a good 2 hours on tediously inserting single email addresses to add 100-ish students to my 4 courses. Needless to say: Pointless.

Bulk adding users to a Team by NON-Admin staff is essential. There needs to be a way for Teachers/Lecturers to bulk add AND remove students (for example) to class / subject Teams. it is an IT Admin having multiple lecturers contacting IT to add/remove students from DL groups and or bulk add / remove using powershell. NON-Admin staff need functionality to within the GUI of teams to bulk manage members (Select ALL for deletion or uploading of a csv file to import team members (Even a "Copy" and Paste of email addresses into a "bulk add members" list within teams would be great!
Similar experience. Similarly stunned that it is missing.

How has this simple feature not been added, (a) almost a year after it was requested, and (b) when it's literally the standard behavior in numerous (almost all?) other Microsoft services? One specific example: Azure DevOps teams; but frankly, virtually every sane, decently designed service that has a team/group concept. As the poster of the related question appropriately noted (ref below), you are not setting yourself up well for educational use if you can't get this essential baseline functionality correct. I am both very surprised and severely disappointed by this oversight. There's no way this can be a tough fix.

Me too I am surprised.
