We've used the Teams app (as well as the desktop app and Outlook) to schedule voice conference calls all throughout our organization, it's replacing webex and everyone is happy with it. The question arose about the app and local contacts on the iPhone. When scheduling calls on the app the Outlook contacts come up as suggestions when you start typing, but the local contacts on the iPhone do not.

Does anyone have any ideas about this situation?

Outlook app should be able to schedule teams meetings. I’d suggest using that since Teams doesn’t yet utilize personal contacts yet. Not sure if the updated calendar app does or not but that’s supposed to be out and has been MIA.

@Chris Webb Hi Chris and thanks for the response. On my Outlook app I only see the option for Skype Meeting, nothing about MS Teams. Is that a setting on the Teams portal or somewhere that I need to change? I've been scouring the web but I can't find which setting might add a Teams option on the Outlook app if one exists.

@Matt Gelfand are you still in Islands mode? take a look at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/upgrade-and-coexistence-of-skypeforbusiness-and-team... to see how the different modes provide different experiences

@Dean Gross Thanks Dean. I'm actually playing with that now, I changed my own setting to Teams only just now. Would you think that at some point I would see a Teams option on the Outlook app? I'm still trying to gather info about this issue.

Yes Teams Only will fix it. It’ll take time sometime days for Teams Only to fully kick in thou so be patient. Obviously also make sure your outlook app is up to date!

@Chris Webb Thanks. I sort of figured that it would take time. Thanks for everyone's responses, much appreciated.

@Chris Webb @Dean Gross  So I'm utilizing the Outlook app on my iPhone. I changed my setting in the Teams portal (Teams upgrade-->Coexistance mode) is now Teams only, and my internal messenger is Teams instead of Skype for Business, and Teams is the option I have on the Outlook app instead of Skype. All good so far. What's not happening is me being allowed to use my iOS contacts when I set up a Teams meeting. According to what I read, I should be able to go into Settings-->Outlook and turn on Contacts, but that option isn't there. So my question is how can I make that happen? Is there another setting in the Teams portal, or do I have to wait for it to show up?

Thanks guys for all of your help.

You can’t! This feature is not there currently! It will search in your directory only! I’m not aware of any option that you described..

Adam
Oh sorry! You can sync phone contacts to your own contacts in outlook! But I believe Outlook app searches the GAL only!

Not sure how this work though, so hopefully someone else might clarify this :)
Wow. That’s pretty dumb that Outlook doesn’t pull from local contacts. I just tried and I can’t seem to look either.

@Chris WebbYou would figure that it's a no brainer since the app is on the phone, but it just doesn't work. I'll probably contact MS directly sometime next week. And they'll tell me that they're working on it.
