  1. Help us SEARCH and FIND things in Teams

    We want improvements to search:

    CTRL+F SHORTCUT
    I wanto to find messages inside a chat or channel with CTRL+F.
    It’ll allow me to quick search messages in a specific conversation.

    PARITY TO SKYPE SEARCH
    Like in Skype chat, we need to be able to search text strings from conversations

    IMPROVE SEARCH RESULTS VIEW
    I feel as though the conversation view looks a bit cluttered as is, and conversation threads are not as readily identifiable as I had hoped they would be. Some suggestions are: Add the ability to include a Topic Header for a conversation so that you can easily…

        You can search inside a specific channel by going to the channel, putting your search term in the search bar, then pressing enter on your keyboard. Then, you’ll see below the search bar a little tab that says “In this channel”. If you click that, you’ll see all the search results for the term in that specific channel.

        If you have any questions, just tweet me at @skprufo.

        The search tool needs to provide results from content within wiki saved to the Teams site.

        • Take me to the target message: Search performance in chats

          Searching for something works (mostly), however if the thing you're search for is sufficiently far back in time, then it's nigh impossible to actually get results back. Clicking the message says "go to chat to see the rest", but clicking on that does nothing but take you back to the chat at the current time, rather than the target message. If you bookmark the message and try to get at the location in chat via that, then the client just lags and eventually crashes. (while chewing up 100% CPU) Tried the desktop client (developer preview), web client Chrome, web client…

            • Search on Partial Names

              I'd like to be able to search on partial names. For instance, if I'm looking for "Robert Smith", when I type in "Rob" I may get 20 people proposed. I want to be able to type in "Rob S" and get Roberts with a last name starting with S. However, the search currently does an exact match. So "Robert" != "Rob" and "Robert Smith" falls out of the results.

              Given names in Teams:
              "Robert Adams", "Rob Dean", "Robert Nice", "Robert Smith"

              As is:
              "Rob" matches "Robert Adams", "Rob Dean", "Robert Nice", "Robert Smith"
              "Rob S" matches no results

              Would like: …

              • Find in Conversation

                Ideally there'd be a way to search / find / filter directly in conversation pane. The search on the upper left of chat just shows me conversations where it appears but I want to navigate and highlight each occurrence of a search string within a conversation thread - particularly long ones with long comments where my name is mentioned.

                    • Add search on every chat session not just a common one

                      Add search on every chat session not just a common one. Its really hard to search globally. Adding a search option under each chat session would help a lot.

                            Somehow when you search for a team name in the iPad version, there is no results, or the wrong. I expect to get the team names.
