  1. Search within Chat window

    functionality to search the string within the chat window between two individuals. For example: I have chatted with my colleague about some project say "abc". Now after few months if i go back to chat window to look for the project discussion, I should be able to search with "abc" string and get my chat what we discussed long back.

  3. Need search function on Posts page

    The posts page for our team is heavily used and due to its non-linear display, it's hard to find conversations. Need a search function for this page.

  4. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Restrict guest users' search function

    Guest users are able to search internal users that are not in the same team by type in their full address into the search bar.

    We want to restrict this search functionality from guest users.

  14. when searching for a term, it only takes you to the line of text it was mentioned

    When i search for a term, i only get the actual mention of the phrase in the individual chat bubble, instead of the ability to go to the place in your chat thread where it's mentioned. For example, if have a long running group chat and in that chat, i asked someone for an apple pie recipe 6 months ago, if i search apple pie-- it'll just take me to my question if no one else used the term "apple pie" in their response. So i can just tell what date i asked but then would have to scroll all…

  15. Ctrl-F should allow search in the current wiki page or inthe whole wiki or in the whole Team

    Searching is a basic feature people are used to and is missing in Teams... The only search I can find search the whole teams thus producing results irrelevant to what I am currently looking for. The search should be contextual: if I am editing a page, it should search that page... and it should alow selecting efficiently if we want case sensitive or whole word only or not... similar to what Mozilla Ctrl-f provides.

  16. The ability to search for text.

    I use this for work and sometimes I need to go back and look for a conversation but there is no search option so I spend a lot of time scrolling through hundreds of messages.

  17. Provide search results that find chats involving multiple people when one of those people is the search input

    Please make sure the Search is able to find Chats involving 3+ people when one of those people is the Search Input.

    When I search a person's name today, the Chat tab only includes my 1-on-1 direct chats with that person. Frequently, to replace email per my understanding of the MS concept of Loops, I communicate with multiple internal colleagues who don't overlap on any single team through Teams Chat. I currently have to find those threads by scrolling through my long list of Chats.

    Loops reference: Matt W blog post series Which Tool When at

  19. Make groups within teams searchable

    I spent two weeks trying to find a team I needed to be attending outside our larger organization, and it turned out the “team” was actually a “group” within a team that nobody had the name for because it had changed several times. The group DID NOT appear in searches. WHY??!! And why are team name changes so easy?? And if I have the weblink, why can’t I just paste it in the search and immediately find the team, discussion, group, or meeting I’m desperately searching for??!! Finding meetings are nearly impossible if you don’t know precisely how to navigate…

  20. A better ms sway.

    It will be better if we can post a sway so that anyone can access our sway with the help of a search engine. For ex, If I post a Sway titled Save Nature then anyone will be able to access it by searching for "save nature" on bing, google, etc.
