Microsoft Teams to Support Chats with Distribution Lists and Other Groups

Microsoft Teams is getting a new update that will enable users to start a group chat by inviting members of distribution lists, Microsoft 365 groups, or mail-enabled security groups.

As of today, Microsoft Teams lets users create tags to ping a specific group of people within a group chat, but tag management could be challenging in particular scenarios. The upcoming update will let users choose a distribution list to broadcast information and send notifications within Teams. This should make it easier to organize chats based on a particular discussion subject, such as marketing, sales, and support.

“Organizations rely on Distribution Lists (DLs) as a tool to create groups of users that mirror organizational knowledge and workflows. Bringing this awareness to target audiences for specific content will enhance the core Teams experience. Allowing our customers to leverage DLs can increase workflow efficiency and bridge the gap between legacy knowledge of organization structure and a new Teams structure,” Microsoft explained.
