  1. see all teams

    Join or Create a Team should display all existing Teams in the organization. Currently the Join or Create option only allows Create. The Search field does not display teams not already in my Favourites list that I know exist. Rather it asks if I want to create a new team with the name of the existing team rather than offering me an opportunity to join the existing team.

  3. Dismiss search results after selecting an item

    Hi! How do I dismiss the search results column after I get to the conversation or item I was searching for? Right now I can't just dismiss the search column after I get to the conversation. It takes up valuable screen real estate.

    I'm using the Microsoft Teams Windows app by the way.

  4. Mobile App Search - Indistinguishable Results

    Chat messages and messages in Team threads are very difficult to distinguish between in the mobile search. This leads to poor UX. If a user (me) is not careful when deliberating between results in the early morning hours then they (me) might send a message into a public thread whilst having intended to send a message to a private chat.

    Please think about adjusting the prominence of the chat type or including a more distinguishable characteristic between Team messages and Chat messages within search results.

  6. Need the ability to search for files within specific Teams

    Need the ability to search for files within specific channels, rather then the entirety of files in Teams

  8. Make Tasks Keyword Searchable

    Currently Planner Tasks are not searchable in Planner or in Teams. Please make keyword searches in Team apply to Tasks as well and add search-ability to Planner.

  9. "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.

  10. 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.

  11. microsoft teams search feature sucks.

    When you search MicrosoftTeams you should be able to go to that point in a particular conversation rather than just see the single chat message that contains your search item. Without this, there is no point and it makes me want to never use Teams again.

  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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Fast search without clicking into search input field

    Right now when i just activate TEAMS window and start typing, nothing happens. It would be good if default behavior in such case is contact search. So use scenario is:
    * user opens teams window
    * users start typing part of name of user, that he want to chat with
    * teams in search bar shows results
    * i can use keyboard arrows to navigate through results
    * by clicking enter i go directly to chat with focus in text input field

  17. Search for (and/or Call) Office 365 Contacts, Exchange Mail Users/Contacts

    Our organisation has many external users (mail users) and Office 365 Contacts in our Global Address List. Skype for Business has the ability to search for these contacts in the GAL and we can easily make calls to them.

    We need this same functionality in Teams.

  18. Highlight the searched words on the right panel

    When we run a search on Teams, the search results displayed under the "Messages" tab will have the searched words highlighted and this is great.

    However, if we then click on the search result we were looking for, the relevant section or words of the selected result isn't highlighted on the panel on the right side, it just loads the discussion at its end. We have to scroll up and look for what we need manually to find the section/words we were looking for.

    It would be a great improvement for the Search feature to highlight directly in the right…

  19. Searching chat history, possibility to jump to selected/filtered result

    Searching chat history, possibility to jump to selected/filtered result.
    The search today is not very useful, i.e. if not all information is in the same post as the searched phrase. Most ofthen you rember talking about something, but also need to read the related chat posts, i.e. not only the post with the exact search phrase.

    Add possibility to jump to a post in search result and see the chat post in chat thread context.

  20. 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!
