Getting to the People App
To access the app, search for “people” in the preinstalled apps.
Types of contacts
There are two types of contacts, directory contacts which come from your organization, and local contacts which you can add from scratch to your copy of Teams.
Directory contacts have some fields set by your organization, and additional fields which can be edited by you.
Local contacts are stored within your local copy of Teams, and do not synch with an organization’s directory.
Add a new contact
- Click the New contact icon in the top left corner.
- Type the name or phone number of a person you would like to add. If your company has a directory set up, the window will automatically suggest people belonging to your organisation. See section below for more information.
- After clicking add, you will be able to provide more information for the contact.
- Select Create.
A new contact is automatically saved in your contacts, and you can see it in All contacts tab in the left navigation. The contacts will be also available through Microsoft 365 in Outlook.
Add people in your organisation to your saved contacts
If your company has a directory set up, you’ll be able to see information about your colleagues without saving them as contacts. You can search for them in Search in Teams or click on their picture in Chats or Channels. Their profile card will show information collected from the directory.
If you want to add other information or to see your colleagues as part of your contact list, you can save them to your contacts by picking their name in directory search during contact creation.
The new contact is linked to the existing directory contact and will be updated automatically to stay up to date with directory information. For example, if their title changes in the directory, your local contact will be updated with the same information.
Only you will see the information you add to your contact and your changes to such information will not by synced back to company directory.
For directory contacts, you may not edit or delete any directory fields, including, but not limited to, name and email addresses. These fields will appear grayed out and you will not be able to modify them. Please contact your IT admin or HR department for such requests.
