Microsoft Teams contacts

To view your Teams contacts, select Calls  Calls button  and choose Contacts on the left.  Here you’ll find an A-Z list of all your contacts and a search bar that you can use to find someone specific.


If you want to add a new contact to your list, click Add contact at the top of your list to get started.

You can also access your Speed dial contacts and any call groups you have created—all on the right side of Teams. Just select Calls  Calls button and access them there at any time.
