We would like Chat admins to have the ability to create a Chat contact list (not in a Team or in a Channel, but in the actual Chat list) and populate the list with a group or groups in Office 365. The admins could then share the Chat lists they create that contain the populated AD groups with all users of Teams Chat. Practical use case.:
We have day and night shifts at some of our offices. The day shift folks will sometimes work into the evening and the night employees would like to know, for safety reasons, who is still in the building working. If we could share each office's Chat list with all employees using Chat (that contain AD groups), then the employees working the night shift could see who is still working in the building by their presence indication (and vice versa).
To ask each employee to build their own office employee lists in the "Contacts" section of Chat is really asking too much when the app should already allow admins to build common lists and share them with Chat users for purposes like I stated in 1).
