Use outlook autocomplete list when inviting external users with meetings options
When inviting external users with the calendar options there is no auto complete list of connection to the auto complete list in outlook.
It would save a lot of time when Teams uses the auto complete list of Outlook when inviting external users.
-when creating meetings, if the admin is typing in a name of a user (Guest User), it does not show automatic suggestions if the customer is just typing in a letter or a name on the field
-when the admin types in specific details for the invited guest i.e. -"CHRIS." which is close enough on the guest user's email address, the auto suggestion pop-ups
*Please see screenshot for reference
-however, when admin uses the option to "Join now"
-name of guest is showing automatically, auto suggest works
-admin wants to know if this is related to the search capability of MS Teams
-verified under Azure Active Directory
-go to Guest Users, all users are added already (automatically by the system)

Teams client does not support this yet. In Outlook the New Teams Meeting button in the calendar view does populate with contact information or cached external guest information. We are using this as a workaround, but this really should be part of the Teams functionality as the data is clearly available.
