How do I Add a Contact in Teams?

People who have not had training in our Microsoft teams end user course always ask about how they can Add a Contact in teams.

Our videos below demonstrate Adding a Contact on Microsoft teams for desktop and for the web. Adding contacts is not available on Microsoft teams for Mobile.


  • First Navigate to the chat tab and then select the contacts tab.
  • Create a new contact group or add the new contact to an existing group
  • Enter the name of the contact within your organisation and they will appear as suggestions.
  • Once you have added the contact they will appear in the contact group that they were added to.
  • Selecting a contact from here will allow you to chat with them.
  • This is one of the topics covered in our Microsoft Teams End User Course. Take the course today to learn everything you will need to know to use Microsoft Teams effectively and impress your colleagues.

    Microsoft Teams is more than just a communications tool, it can also be a powerful collaboration tool for teams of users within an organisation. If you are interested in learning to administer Microsoft Teams rather than becoming an End User then the Microsoft Teams Admin Course may be of interest as it teaches a user to be able to create and maintain teams for your organisation so that they can collaborate seamlessly.
