  1. Add search function within each team.

    The overall search box does not allow you to search within a individual team only.

  4. Searching in Saved Messages

    We use Microsoft Teams at my workplace and we really like the opportunity to save documents, posts or photos. When there is a task and a deadline in a post, I just save it and then I can check it easily at the 'Saved messages' tab. So I won't forget it. The only one problem is with the saving posts is if there are too many posts then hard to find and manage them, so it would be essential and important that users could SEARCH only between the saved messages.

  5. Highlight the searched words on the right panel

    When we run a search on Teams, the search results displayed under the "Messages" tab will have the searched words highlighted and this is great.

    However, if we then click on the search result we were looking for, the relevant section or words of the selected result isn't highlighted on the panel on the right side, it just loads the discussion at its end. We have to scroll up and look for what we need manually to find the section/words we were looking for.

    It would be a great improvement for the Search feature to highlight directly in the right…

  6. Filter messages sent to others

    I can see all messages that I'm tagged in or someone replied to me or..... But I can't see messages where a coworker is tagged. So when someone is out sick (for instance) I can't easily filter stuff down to see what people are asking her/him for.

  8. click on filter should push the cursor in filter input

    When filtering the channels, clicking on Filter(0) opens the Filter menu. The cursor should be automatically in Filter by keyword input box. It would save a click

  9. Find/Search > Go to Chat. should take you to that point in time during the chat. Not just the chat window.

    I want to search for a conversation within a full chat with someone. So, I use keywords in the search function. Teams will find the single message in which I used that keyword but single messages are out of context.

    The Go to Chat feature just takes you to that chat at the latest message. It should take you to that specific point in time in the chat so that you can see the full context of the conversation.

    Trying to scroll through days of endless chatter is cumbersome.

  10. #Teams

    Trending "hashtags" might help Teams ability to search for common terms that we use. If we can use the # we might be able to click on the term and see all of the other times our group or other groups did the same thing!

  11. Matching Channels Should Show Up in Team Search

    Channel names that match a search in "Team Search" should show up in the search along with the team they are a part of.

    Depending on how we use the two entities they could be relatively interchangable - a user searching should not have to know ahead of time that the "abc" channel they are looking for is a part of "xyz team"

  13. search

    When you search for a team, then click on a team, the navigation pane does not move to that team so you can't see the channels. You still have to manually find the team in the list to see the channels within the team.
    Clicking search result should make the navigation pane jump to that team and expand it to see the channels.

  15. Favorite Search - Saved Searches

    Have the option to pin to favorites bar "Saved Searches", or "Virtual channels" or "Alert Channels" or whavetever the name, you get the idea.. be able to define a search and get an unread count when there are matches on it. Ideal to track common terms across all of the teams you are connected to.

  16. Searching - go to chat

    When I finally find the message that contains a phrase that I was searching, I would like to see it in a wider context. By clicking 'go to chat' I understand 'go to chat, where the phrase was found'. Now 'go to chat' leads me to the last message from the chat.

  18. search then sort by date modified

    Doing a search in explorer, waiting for it to complete, then clicking on the "Date Modified" column to sort by most recent causes Windows to start the search all over again. This is frustrating when searching a large directory, because I already wait for the search to complete, then after the results have come up, I should be able to simply sort the results that are already found by their modified date. But instead, I believe due to a bug, Windows Search thinks it has to start the search all over again.

  19. Make the search as office.com one, a global search !

    We want teams to be our digital workplace where we chat, access documents, tasks from planner, website from tabs, bots etc.

    The problem with search is that is doesn't let us search in the entire tenant content such as office.com search.

    Is there a way that could be achieved ?

    Thank you,

  20. First name search should return last name, first name in last name alphabetical order

    In people search, First name search should return first - anyone I've texted with previously, then by last name, first name in last name alphabetical order. Right now it's returning in a seemingly random order.
