Use Who to find info about people in Teams

Who is a bot in Teams that's designed to help you find information about anyone in your organization. Who comes in handy if you're in a conversation with someone and need a list of everyone who reports to them, or when you receive an email from someone unfamiliar and want to find out who they are and what they're working on.

Find information about people with Who

To use Who, click New chat New chat button at the top of the app then type who in the To field. Or you can go to the command box at the top of Teams, type /who, then enter your question.

Note: Who can only chat one-on-one, not in channels or group chats.

Who can provide info on who a person reports to, who reports to them, what they know about, and what they've been doing. To get more specific, we've created a complete list of all the questions Who can answer.

Since Who pulls a lot of its information from Exchange Online (your company directory), the more information included in that directory, the smarter Who will be.
