In Skype For Business Online, I was able to have distribution lists of groups and expand them to see who was online, the distribution lists came over to Teams, but show no members.  Will this be fixed in a future upgrade or will this no longer work?

Thanks.  Tried to do a search for contacts and lists but did not see that one.  The issue that I am having is lists with internal folks in it.  The group names show up but contacts in the group do not.

The migration or lack there of is pretty bad. You pretty much are just going to have to right click your groups and add your contacts back to them, not really any way around it atm, and most likely won't be if I had to guess.

Are there any updates on adding distribution lists to chat?

+1 for this. since MS announced that it is killing skype for business, Teams needs to be ready and as robust or more than skype for business. currently i think teams is good for collaboration, but it is way too complex UI and overkill for most of our workforce that only needs and uses the chat feature

 

please re-add the skype feature where we can add DL to our contact list so that contasct lists can be automatically maintained. 

 

manually having to add contact is time consuming and no one "ain't time fo that". especially with DL with hundreds of people in it
