Click on Chat sidebar. Click Recent on the next bar. There is a section called "Suggested"
It show a list which is at least 2 years old. How can I remove this feature? I don't want anything suggested by Teams. thanks

thanks just voted up for that

What I ended up doing, was sending an IM to the contact.  This moved it into recent contacts.  Then I hid the contact from the recents list.  Seemed to work for me.

This worked but really!!!! The only way to remove people is to start a conversation with them, delete the conversation and hide them?

Or get popular and get some chats and they will go away after so many chats :)

This worked perfect!

This is what we were doing as a workaround :)

@DeveloperSchmeloper 

It sounded like such a good idea, but the person I want to remove is no longer with our company and I simply don't want to even be reminded of her. Since her ID does not work, the system did not move her to the Recent list when I tried to IM her.

I only wish for a simple right-click > remove option with ANY name in ANY group or team. Is that hard?

@Jeff Saremi Finally we were able to discard the contacts under Suggested list in Microsoft Teams by selecting the options (...) next to the contact.
