Is there an API to pre-populate contacts & speed dials into a Teams user profile?

We are looking to pre-populate individual Teams setups - specifically within the Calls / Contacts & Calls / Contacts / Speed Dials sections within user's profiles. The way we are currently doing it is to log into that user's account individually, manually enter the contacts, and then manually add them to speed dials. This is a very time consuming procedure.

On the same topic, when a contact is added manually into the Teams / Calls / Contacts interface, where is that contact information actually stored on the back-end? I can't find those contacts via Outlook nor by any API definitions that I can find.

I have looked into the graph API looking within the https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me hierarchy, but I have been unable to find anything relevant. Is there something that I am missing within the graph API or otherwise where we can make these updates programmatically?

    Hello @Silverman, Alan ,

    There is a Graph API Beta endpoint that provides more information for user profile:
    https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/profile

    It returns user details with more information then below API:
    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/

    We have a patch call API to update the user contact details
    PATCH: https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/profile

    Could you please try with these.
