    Hi Alex and team -- Doesn't look like the "try this instead" GAL solution will work for my client, because users need access to more than one contact list, e.g. one per branch office.

    It would be wonderful if creating a universally-accessible Teams contact group were as simple as creating a new team. Of course, I can create a new team and add a group of users to it; however, I can't seem to find any easy way to add all users from a given team to Chat Contacts -- much less to easily/automatically pre-load lists of chat contacts to all users in my client's organization.

    Presently, my client seems to have no choice but to go on each of his 35 users' machines, set up their Outlook to sync all relevant contacts from the company's GAL to their personal Outlook contacts, then go into that user's Teams app and manually set up all the required contact groups. This is a huge pain, and if I had known about this beforehand, I probably wouldn't have even moved him off of his old chat/calling system.

    "Right now I have to click on Edit to be able to see the description of the Team" <--- This! I'm designing Teams and channels for clients, and their users are certainly not going to click "Edit Channel" to see the full description! Just getting them to click the (i) info icon to see the description at all will be challenging enough. Why truncate the description at all? -- or if truncate it, why not make an easy and obvious way to click to see the full description?
