Support hashtags in channels and DMs
Allow clickable links on #hashtagged items ... in a channel or group, perform a search within that group.
For DMs and conversations, search all of your conversations
This feature is on the backlog. I will update you when we have more details to share.
document tagging would also be a very goog improvement
Adding Tags to channels would compliment this nicely.
In other words, tagging channels for searchability
Ryan Graham commented
We need this as well.
Can the Search by #tag be activated as is working in yammer to find files, threads, topics, ...
Ada Galilea commented
Do you know when it would be available this feature? I have a customer who is waiting to this feature to start to use MS Teams. (1000 users)
Yes, this would be a great feature to allow users to revisit (see all conversations/messages with a specific #tag) a.la. Yammer - Voted!
This is one of the things I like about Yammer- please allow a similar experience here. I would love the functionality to search for # across all channels and individual channels.
Would be great! As would the Slack like possibility to "Highlight Words".

Yes please :) Can we have them work in Wiki Tabs too?
Daniel Kisa commented
Yes, please. This would make Team considerably more useful for us.
This combined with the ability to create a Conversation Topic or Converation Title/Header would be really powerful.
This was in fact the first thing I tried when I tested MS Teams!
Please also make the possibility to have a list of my favorite #tags. Perhaps build a separate tab like chat or files.

glad this is planned, hope its soon.
Minor point, I'm already using hashtags. Can you make sure that when this feature gets introduced that any existing hashtags also get turned into a hyperlink to a search
Sid Grover commented
#tags are very useful in marking conversation topics. These should be clickable to see all conversations on these tags. We are already using this in teams but after that we have to search for a #tag. Clicking it will enable more people to use it like it should be naturally in today's world
Diarmuid Delaney commented
This is a must have, ideally just like Yammer's implementation
I'd like to add to this the ability to follow, be notified by, a hashtag.

a must-have for this kind of tools
I agree that clickable #hashtags are a musthave. This was a fully integrated feature of my team's work process when we used Newsgator
