Microsoft Teams: The good, the bad, and the ugly

Re: Not bad, just a bit rough

In SfB/Lync you can search for a username, then right-click > Call > Call tel number. You can also select to call a phone number from the chat window.

In Teams you can only call using VoIP from a chat window. Again, if you search for a user you can only call them on VoIP.

To call any of their numbers you first have to go to Contacts > Add Contact > Search user > Add Contact. Then you can find them in your address book and click the number to call it.

So it's telling me I have to add every single user to my address book before I can call their number? Not to mention its in a completely separate window compared to the decade old Lync/Skype that has everything in one place.

Its awful.
