Hi All,

 

I am looking for a solution that will allow me to import or create multiple contacts into my contact list on Microsoft Teams. I would like to add all of my clients numbers into my contact list for easier calling but I cannot go through one at a time to do so, it would take to much time. As of right now I can add them one by one but I would believe there is an easier solution? 

 

Thanks.

Currently there’s no way to add them any other way then manually one by one

Hmm, are you referring to call contacts?

If so, these can be populated in Teams by adding them to Outlook so you could, if you haven’t done so, bulk add them to Outlook via an excel spreadsheet which should save you a load of time. See article here

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/import-contacts-from-an-excel-spreadsheet-to-outlook-f64834...

Would of course test it in Outlook to make sure it pulls through to Teams as required.

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris
Sorry, didn’t mean to confuse! Though you were talking about chat contacts :)

No worries. I should have been more clear.
