  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Add Metatags at the Team level

    Need to be able to metatag at the Team, Channel, Folder and Doc levels, so metatags are inherited at the highest level.

  4. Allow users to group and search for team names and content like PC client.t

    Allow the mobile client to search for team names instead of just chats.

  6. Search result finds dead links

    Search results within the app point to files on SP Online which have either been moved or no longer exist. The TEAMS app does not seem to be updating these when it does its link/crawl.

  8. "Best match" category for search results

    Similar to how search works in Windows 10, I would like search results to show me all search results first in a "best result" tab then allow me to browse those results by using "messages", "people", and "files" tabs.

    Right now if I search on a term that is only present in a file the results window shows nothing because its defaulting to the messages tab. At the very least show the number of results on each tab.

  11. Search has regressed

    The Search functionality in the latest update to the Teams app seems to have regressed. If you search for something, and find a message with that phrase, when you click on it, it only shows you that exact message.

    No context.

    If you click the "Go to that chat" link, it puts you at the latest message in that chat stream, not where the found message is.

  12. Use search to quickly jump to a tab

    Similar to how you can user the search bar to quickly jump to a specific Team or Channel, it would be great to show Tab names as well. Of course it would need to show you which team and channel that tab belongs to. If you select that item it quickly takes you directly to that tab.

  13. "go to"

    please add a Go to... feature that allows you to go to a date within a chat thread rather than having to scroll up from Now to 6 months ago because that is when the conversation happened. if a user could at least GO to June 1, 2017 and start scrolling from there it would be much better.

  14. search result mac little by little

    Client app on Mac shows the search result little by little.
    - Hope it shows up the whole result at one time.
    - If impossible, any loading sign/icon should appear to inform it's still working on.

  17. Please move the search bar back to the left and not at the top of the window..

    I'm not sure why the search bar was moved to the top of the window b/c it really doesn't make any sense or serve any new purpose. I can't see why that was ever a priority or a thought. It's just awful. Please move it back.

  18. People Search - Wrong Chat Bug

    Steps:
    1. People Search to a new person whom you've never chatted with (perhaps it's a person who does not have Teams installed?)
    2. Double click the name to initiate a new chat
    3. Note that Teams randomly selects an existing/recent chat and brings that one forward instead.

    This behavior could be deadly if you don't notice that the wrong person's chat window is now enabled.

    The only way I have to start a new conversation is to click the "new" button on the top of the current chats list, which is fine, but the other way is more intuitive…

  20. Clicking on a found message does not take me back to where it is in the channel anymore.

    What happened to this? It used to work when I search for a message, find it, click it and it would take me to the exact place in the channel that it was posted. Now, it takes me to random areas in the channel. This isn't useful anymore, and makes it hard to use this tool for collaboration now.
