Our organization is migrating from Skype for Business to Teams. One of the features we used before was having a distribution group automatically added to users' contact lists so that it was easy for our users to contact members of the help desk staff.

 

Is there a way to add default contacts in Teams for new users?

I just checked with my coworker - we were previously able to add an Office 365 group as a contact in Skype for Business. For example, you would add "HelpDesk" as a contact, and your Skype contact list would then have a group added with members of the group listed under it.

 

I can't find a way to add an Office 365 group as a contact in Teams. Is it possible?

In my knowledge , no this isnt possible
