  2. Jump to conversation when doing a chat search

    When searching for a chat, only the literal chat bubble that has the search term comes up. From the search results, there is no obvious way to be able to jump into that conversation at that point in time, meaning that if you're looking for something months old, and you need to see the broader conversation, you need to do a lot of scrolling in the main chat to get to where the search result was. This is a very painful experience, and it would be highly preferable to just be able to jump from the search to that exact…

  4. UserVoice - Enable Sort By Votes & Date

    When trying to provide feedback on Teams you get to UserVoice where it's very likely that what you're looking for has already been submitted...rather than start a new request like this one I'm writing.

    I'm starting the request because I want to sort on the suggestions with Most 'Votes', or most recently voted on suggestions.

    I hope this garners more votes quickly to add this to UserVoice.

  6. search

    When searching for an existing Team, the search results should surface all Teams that share the keyword you used to search. Right now, you have to know the very beginning of the Team name to find it. The current search experience does not search all of the keywords in a Team name, only the first word.

  8. Regarding the search function of Microsoft Teams

    Regarding the search function of Microsoft Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams の検索機能でチャットの検索すると、キーワードによって検索がヒットしない、または、キーワードの検索でフィルターが "すべて" だと検索がヒットするが、"チャット" と "チャネル" にするとヒットしなくなる。
    検索機能が正常に動作するよう機能の改善を希望します。

    When you search for chat with the search function of Microsoft Teams, it does not work depending on the keywords. Also, it works when you set the filter as "all" in the keyword search, but it does not work when it is set as "chat and "channel".
    Please make improvements such that the search function works normally.

  10. Enable Searching by Cost Center (who is in cost center xxx)?

    In Skype, you could enter a cost center number and it would show you all the people that currently had that cost center assigned to them in their contact information. Unfortunately, Teams does not operate the same even though it is presented in the same manner when you hover over the person and get their contact information.

    In addition, it would be great if the AI in the Who app would be able to recognize more of the cost center or department based questions, such as who is in cost center XXX? who is the manager of cost center xxx?

  11. Add an in-chat search function, the general search function is too messy.

    Please add an in-chat search function, the general search function is too messy. I'd like to search a conversation for a specific keyword, without having to use the general search which takes longer and brings up the same keyword in unrelated conversations.

  15. proper search engine

    Add proper search engine. Lack of proper search in history of the conversation is the biggest problem using Microsoft Teams.

    In the past the solution for Skype was that the conversation history was available from Outlook and searching was enhanced by Outlook.

    Current implementation history browsing for Microsoft Teams means that the use of this program is just for a quick talk, and everything important needs to be done using different form of communication. That means that Teams will not be a one of a main tools but is an additional tool.

  20. Display all assignments

    When a student attempts to view their assignments they should be able to view all of them. Due to the fact that they are separate the student could have a lot of classes meaning they may have to go through each one individually. So there should be a list of all assignments starting with the one that's due first
