  1. To be really lazy I really need to know how to add multiple people without doing it individually…is that possible….I know you can’t just paste a list, no matter how you format that list as I’ve tried!

  2. Excellent little tip, this.

    Unfortunately MS Teams does not have a very intuitive interface, for some things at least. So we definitely need tips like this otherwise we’d never find half the functionality.
