Hi :

 

Is there a way to create a new group chat by selecting a contact group in teams (not AD).  To clarify, this would be the area in the chat section, you click on Contacts.  From that area, I was trying to figure out if it's possible to select a group and it automatically starts a chat with everyone in the selected group without me having to enter each member one by one. Thanks :)

@robthom as far as I know you do have to add the members to the chat group the first time.  But then you can rename the group and even pin it for future chats.

@robthomHi, did you get anywhere with this ? is the group chat possible using a contact group ?

@mymacadd Hi, as of right now, still no luck.  Been doing things manually.  I am exploring power scripts as a solution.
