Access your favorites
Flag contacts that you use frequently as favorites in Teams Easy Directory. When you start Easy Directory, they will always be displayed directly.
Synchronize contacts from different sources directly into your personal Outlook contact folder. This makes the contacts fully available in your Outlook contacts folder too. A positive side effect of synchronization is that Teams recognizes callers located in the user’s contact folder for incoming PSTN phone calls (only with Exchange Online). The synchronized contacts are always kept up-to-date in Outlook even they change at the source.
It is important to note that the synchronizer can only synchronize contacts from the contact source to Outlook and cannot synchronize Outlook contacts to other systems.
See the Teams «Presence» as well as the user photo on internal Microsoft 365 contacts. Start a Teams call, a video call or a chat directly. If you have activated external PSTN telephony, a call can be launched with a simple click on the phone numbers. You can also initiate an email with a single click on the email address.

Requirements for the Easy Directory Teams phone book
In essence, you need the following requirements:
- Microsoft Teams
- Exchange Online
- Optimally, you also have Teams PSTN Calling in place
For the installation, you need the support of a Microsoft 365 Global Admin, i.e. your IT administrator must grant access for the Easy Directory Teams phonebook so that the app can access Azure AD contacts. It is also the responsibility of the Teams administrator to allow the app via permission policy and distribute it to the appropriate employees in the company via setup policy.
How do I install the EasyDirectory app?
The app is offered directly through the Microsoft Teams Store. This gives you the option to install the app directly in Teams or via Teams Admin Center. Detailed information about the installation can be found in the Installation Guide.
You have the possibility to test the Easy Directory Teams phone book for 30 days free of charge. The subsequent purchase of the subscription and billing is done directly through Microsoft and is described in detail in the Easy Directory documentation. The licensing is «concurrent». This means that not all users have to be licensed in every case, but it is measured how many are active in parallel. If a user obtains a license (by using the app), then the license is booked for 30 days for this user. If he does not use the app anymore, the claimed license is released after 30 days. This topic is explained in more detail in the FAQs.
Compliance and data protection
The data and contacts always remain in your Exchange Online and thus never leave your tenant. This means that we do not store any contact data, but only provide the app logic.
To function properly, Easy Directory requires the following Microsoft Graph permissions:
The Easy Directory web services are operated in Microsoft data centers (Western Europe, Netherlands).
For more information on compliance and data protection, see the documentation.
