Hi everyone!

 

I want to get rid of several contacts that got imported to my Teams contact list when my user was migrated from Skype For Business.

 

How do I remove contacts from my list completely?

I was able to remove a contact from all groups but the contact still seem to be there (e.g. via search).

 

Thank you!

That most likely means that a corresponding user/contact object still exists in the directory, you have to remove it from there (using the O365 admin portal or the Azure AD blade or the corresponding PowerShell cmdlets).
