Sharepoint Online/2013 - way to add members and auto-populate a list with contact info?

I am working on creating a template for a Project site in SharePoint online, so that when it's created, you "select" or "choose" a list of people from a department group, and then it automatically makes them Contributors to the site.
And then in the site, there is a contacts app that has everyone's name and columns about them (like e-mail and phone#) listed.

Is that possible?

Because, the way it's setup now seems like it will be tedious. For every new project site, I'd have to just fill in the "Team contacts" list with everyone's full name and type out their e-mail and phone #.

Just wondering where I can at least start if not find a guide that holds my hand in creating this.

You select or choose the people to the site via the site actions button, then site permissions. You can determine what level of access to grant. You can also optionally send them an invitation to the site with the site url.

Then you can add a web part to the page that shows the user with access to the site.

Hope that helps....

Is that the Site Users web part? I don't think it has any columns for e-mail and phone #

The displayed name will be a hyper link that will open the users "User Information" page, which contains all the information you are looking for, plus other useful information.

This is a quick and efficient way to provide user information.

Good luck...
