    Hello, sorry for asking here, I would like to ask you if you know if it is possible to make with teams: a call to all the members of a group located in outlook “contacts” -> “contact list”
    Thank you very much.

      Hi,

      No problem that you asks here. There is also a great community where you can ask questions at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com

      To you question, it is not possible to call all users in an outlook contact group. What you can to is to create a group chat in Teams and add all of the contacts and from there start a group call (conference). But you can only add internal users to a group chat.
