Teams Mobile - Sync & Search Outlook Contacts and Shared Contacts
Teams Mobile does not show any contacts created in Outlook, or shared contacts from shared Outlook mailboxes. Please allow Teams Mobile to sync with those contacts so employees don't have to waste time re-creating and maintaining the SAME CONTACTS they already create on the Teams Desktop app. It's crazy in 2019 that our employees have to re-type phone numbers (or re-create each individual contact) to call our clients from the Teams Mobile app.
We are a very small company with lots of clients. Being able to search only fellow employees in Teams Mobile and not our client contact lists provides ZERO value. At least Skype for Business Mobile lets employees see their individual contact lists. Taking away that feature in Teams is a big downgrade to our business.
Please "do not disturb" our Skype for Business experience until Teams Mobile can show/sync our Outlook Contacts. Forcing Teams on our business before then is NOT HELPFUL.

This is insane! Can't believe this is not a feature.
you would think it would be a given that Teams would be seamlessly integrated into Microsoft office. creating two contact list streams is not logical.

This is a show stopper for me. All other phone vendor have Outlook contact sync, except Microsoft !!

@MS Teams Team - Please get this fixed soon. It a big hole in Teams functionality.
Syncing Outlook Contacts with Teams contact will make it useful
