Support for expansion modules / sidecars on desk phones
I noticed that a few phone manufacturers now support Teams on desk phones - such as the Yealink T56A, what it doesn't support is the expansion modules that are extremely useful for receptionist. Skype for Business supported the Yealink T48G and the EXP40 expansion module. The T56A supports the EXP50 module but Teams doesn't support the module, only the desk phone itself.
We also need it!
Add the C450HD Audiocodes device to this list
The lack of this feature seems like a glaring omission and impeding our ability to adopt Teams

We also need this feature for our Power Users. We're trying to find workarounds but this feature seems necessary because the Phone Operating System doesnt offer anything else.
Need this as well. Dropping support for this was a step backwards.
Definately need speed dial/directory and or sidecar support for phones (Yealink user here)
Agreed, Teams needs a speed dial list displayed on the phone and sidecar support for receptionists. The oversights on these units are just galling, and the lack of communication about the roadmap for phone features is nonexistent. Rolling out phone projects is definitely impacted by this lack of feature parity with the S4B phones - they really jumped the gun on this.
