  1. About user search

    When using Microsoft Teams, it is possible to search for 365 users within the same company.
    I want to work with Outlook contacts, not just 365 users in the same company.
    I want to display external users registered in Outlook in the user search of Microsoft Teams.

  3. Chat content searchable by keyword

    Currently it is not possible to search meeting/people chats' content and attachments with a keyword. It is only enabled to look for keywords in the title of chat. Will be useful to make entire content of chats/meetings searchable.

  4. Teams won't show status in drop-down list when calling over searchbar command

    Using commands in the searchbar is super helpfull but I really miss the small status icons in the drop-down list.

    The drop-down list appears to be the only place where the availability of users is not displayed beneath their profile pictures.

    Adding that would prevent unnecessary call attempts.

    Thx

  5. Search box for list and library

    It is not possible search content in list or library tab in Teams. I can use filter or change view but I can't search. It is very important to have search box for list or libraries. Please add the search box to list/library action panel. Thanks a lot

  6. Function to customize the user search in Teams

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams ユーザー検索をカスタマイズする機能
    Function to customize the user search in Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Microsoft Teams ではユーザー検索の際に、"Exchange アドレス帳ポリシーを利用したユーザー検索制限" しか検索を制限する機能がなく誰でも検索できてしまう。ユーザーにより、検索可能な範囲を詳細に設定できる機能(特定ユーザーのみ検索可能等の検索範囲を制限するなどの調整)の実装を希望します。

    Currently when searching for users in Teams, instead of the search function “Using Exchange address book policies to limit user search”, you can search for anyone. We would like a function where the scope of searching that is possible can be set in detail for different users (restrictions such as only specific users being able to search).

    Display count of all types of successful search results in search area:

    Now: Messages People Files

           We did not find any matches.

  8. Extremely slow search process

    The MS Teams search process so slow it kills me to search any keywords from previous chats. It hangs MS Teams momentarily. This is across all our company users, not just me,

  10. Make the retention of chats, files and any other shared information within a Team or Channel limitless

    I was hoping that MS Teams would be a functional collaboration tool that would allow non-time-limited searching of the chats we have had as a go-to resource and L&D tool. My team were using Yammer in this way, but it got flagged as a security issue, and SharePoint offers no solution so I'd hoped that MS Teams would. But I've just found that chats within teams and channels are only retained for 12 months and also I can't find a way of keyword searching which is what we would want. Yammer worked fine and it's social media-type functionality with search…

  12. Teams Search Results default to General Channel Only When Chosen from the Search Results

    Searching from within Teams and looking for a specific Team is simple, but when you locate the Team and select it from the search results, you cannot navigate to another channel in that Team. It does not list the other channels as well. Users can't simply search for a Team, select from the search results, which takes the user only to the General channel view. And no other option to navigate to the other channels that are part of that Team.

  14. I would like to see search results in a semi-structure format

    Categorize and organize the search results by rank, chats, channels, teams, sharepoint destinations.

    This implies that the search goes across all those vectors.

    The Wiki tab should have a search function, otherwise it loses much of its usefulness

  16. About the search function

    Only users in domains registered in the "Target Domain" of the Azure Active Directory admin center can be invited as guests.
    For each user, I want to check if the target user's domain is already registered in the "target domain".
    I would like you to add a function that allows you to search for domain registrations using the search function of the Microsoft Teams client.

  19. We want to be able to use department names and furigana for searching users in Microsoft Teams search

    Microsoft Teams 内の検索にて、部署名やフリガナを利用したユーザー検索をできるようにしたい
    We want to be able to use department names and furigana for searching users in Microsoft Teams search


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams を利用していますが、検索ボックスにユーザーの部署名やフリガナを入れても、該当のユーザーが検索結果に表示されません。
    Skype for Business ではユーザーの部署名やフリガナを入れた場合にユーザー検索が可能であったため、同様の機能を Microsoft Teams でも実装希望です。​
    We are using Microsoft Teams, but even if we enter the user's department name and furigana, that user does not get displayed in the search results.
    As user search can be done in Skype for Business even when the user's department name and furigana is used, we hope that the same feature can be implemented in Microsoft Teams.
