  1. Unable to search using short name of a person

    If I have a Teams Colleague with the name Robert Vanderplank and I search for the name Rob Vanderplank the Teams Search results return no results. I have to enter his full name as Robert Vanderplank to find his contact.

    It would be very useful if Teams could search using partial names as well as the full name.

  2. command box chat

    The new command box launched on Jan 31, 2018 is great!

       However the /chat is missing from the list of features.
    

    It would be great to /chat then enter a name or a few names. Then be able to send them a chat message instead of always having to mouse into the Chat tab, then search or add them to the list. Thanks!

  3. Add a Keyword List

    I'd like to be able to add Keywords from a list to a conversation, document etc. For example we post meeting notes in a PDF, and then notify staff to their location with a link, but it's hard to know what's IN the PDF, so we add headings from the PDF at the bottom of the post so that it becomes searchable. I just don't want to type them in every time, so it would be nice to choose them from a list.

  4. 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.

  6. Make the bookmark display only the bookmarked part of the conversation

    Bookmarks would be a whole lot more powerful when it would only display the bookmarked conversation - should not be too difficult, right?

    (the current setting only 'jumps' back in the timeline with all the other conversations on display, too - which isn't helpful when trying to focus only on my bookmarked conversation, really)

  8. Search bar- lower case, uppercase matters in search...ruins functionality.

    Search bar needs to find items w/out taking into account caps or lowercase. ex TENNIS or tennis- ruins functionality.

  10. Search engine should search on team name, like desktop version

    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.

  11. Add search engine in office 365

    For example when the conversation is very long or there is many files in some teams, it would be very usefull to have search engine to find the thing you want to find.

  12. Username search fails sometimes

    Searching for people by their AD username sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. It's incredibly frustrating, especially if they fall into/out of the suggestions as you type more letters of their name.

    For example, there are certain people I consistently can never find by username, but I can find them by searching their last name. Other people can be found by username just fine.

  16. Change the number of suggestions in users search with Microsoft Teams

    When you search users using search form in Microsoft Teams, there are 5 suggestions maximum although you want to view more than 5.
    It would be nice to have a feature that could change the maximum view of the number of suggestions when you have users more than upper limit in search. So that we can reduce the cost.

  19. People search should match transliterated names

    Searching for people should match also transliterations of national characters. E.g., not everyone has characters like "ł" or "ě" on their keyboards, it should be possible to search using "l" or "e" in their place.

    For instance, searching for "Michal" should return people named "Michał" in results.

  20. Create a glossary

    What you mean by certain terms is not obvious to all customers. What are you referring to by "channel," for example? The
    English Channel? In your usage, it is a Special Term. When a person enters one word in the search bar, if it is a Special Term, the first entry listed at the top of the search results should be the word's special definition.
