  1. Add location AD to search capability

    Currently in Skype you can search for individuals by location from AD, then you can select a user based a search results. Very helpful to find individuals at a specific location and/or department -- would like to see this feature enabled in Teams. Currently you have to know exactly who you are trying to IM in advance.

  2. Make it easier to find named conversations

    If I search for the name of a previous conversation it will not be listed, just the messages inside the conversation. It would be nice if the names of conversations where also listed if they match the search terms. If that's not possible another tab could be added next to Messages/People/Files called conversations.

  3. 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.

  4. Make search option available for each group chat, as all chats are online so easy to search.

  5. Searchable code snippets

    It's not possible to search for the content of a code snippet.

    Would be great to be able to search for parts of the content, e.g. if you want to search for examples where a certain class or library is in use.

  6. search notebook contents

    The contents of OneNote Notebook files need to be searchable. The fact that MS has a wonderful search capability in SharePoint and such bad searching in Teams is difficult to understand.

  7. Fix search functionality

    Search is quite buggy:

    - disabled users are still searchable (even though their account have no license assigned)
    - not all people with same name are displayed in the result list
    - search in desktop version shows different results than in web version

    Please fix this, it's really hard to work without working search functionality.

    Thank you,

  8. Scroll/ show channel to match selected team after search

    When searching for a team and selecting the team name from the search result, the channel list on the left is not updated to 'scroll to' the team's channels. So the wrong channels are still shown/ I need to manually scroll down the team&channel list on the left to see which channels belong to the now selected team.

    Thanks in advance!

  9. view public team in tenant

    When user clicks "Join or create a team", public teams are listed.
    Currently, these teams are not of all public teams. Only teams that are related to me or other members are shown.

    Please add options "All public teams" are shown.

  10. double-quoted string search function

    I'd like to search with following keywords
    yammer teams
    By doing it, the search result will show the posts including both yammer and teams

    But to search with Yammer[sp]Teams, many search engine provides such function by letting user by double quoting the search keywords.
    I'd like you to provide such function.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

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

  14. Please add file searching for Guest Users

    Guest users are unable to search files in Teams. They get the "Messages" and "People" however "Files" is not present. They are able to search SharePoint no issues, just not teams.

  15. Join Public Teams Search Directory Failure

    What about to make the directory of Public teams display correctly for users?
    When user click on "Join or create a team" the list of public teams of the organisation appears,
    teh directory of Public teams displays randomly, for some users of the same organization they can se only 2 for others several there is no rule,
    It is a stop for our organization to join MSTeams instead of Slack

  17. Search function is slow

    The search functionality is slow compared to the same function in Slack. It would be very helpful to decrease the time associated with searching within the search bar.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
