  1. User search suggestions extension

    Search for users to see suggestions.
    If you only know your last name, you want to find that user from the candidate.
    However, this feature only displays 20 people.
    If there are many candidates, they will be missed and cannot be contacted.
    I'd like to see an extension to show more than 20 users.

  2. Show the same search results for Teams desktop and for mobile app

    When entering one multibyte character in the search bar via desktop client, the search result will be shown.
    However, with mobile devices, we need to type two or more multibyte characters to show search results.
    Therefore, I think the both apps should provide us exactly same results.

  4. Add Teams and Channel search in mobile (iOS, iPadOS, Android)

    A user cannot currently search for Teams or Channels directly in mobile apps today. You can only search for People, Messages or Files - so, you basically have to either navigate directly to the Team or Channel in the navigation menu (which is incredibly inefficient with large quantities of either and especially inefficient on a mobile device) or you have to remember a file name, message or person in one of those Teams or Channels and hope that it appears in the search results so that you can then navigate to that Team or Channel.

  5. Save message with a tag

    Allow specifying a tag when saving a message, which can then be used later for easy retrieving of the message. Consequently, allow searching a saved message by a given tag.

  6. Search for status of any member of the organization - not only of a specific team

    It seems I need to have someone already added as a contact - or I need to initiate a chat in order to see someone's status. Would be nice to be able to search on a name to see their status (similar to Skype for Business)

  8. Run a search by a link/ url

    I would like the possibility to run a search in Teams by a link.
    Example run a search in a Team or Channel
    https://teams.microsoft.com/l/channel/19%3a68accb59058b4f6aa64d261f0d7bbcc8%40thread.skype/Uservoices?groupId=56bc81d8-db27-487c-8e4f-8d5ea9058663&tenantId=8d4b558f-7b2e-40ba-ad1f-e04d79e6265a maybe a s type link for search
    Add a query parameter for search by keyword
    Also a type parameter to filter by type e.g. conversation or file or one ...
    This would be great to quickly fire a Teams search from outside also to provide quick shortcuts to common search.
    Currently the filter option can be quite cumbersome and you can not save a preferred search.

  9. Display the department name when adding a member

    There is not enough information when adding a member to the team.
    The title is displayed, but the department name is not displayed.
    When searching, it is inconvenient.
    I hope that the department name is also displayed.

  10. Allow full content search!

    Can't search notes, chats, anything. This is an incredibly basic feature.

  14. Microsoft Teams need a searchable function for OneNote and WiKi. It is a great platform for documentation and task assignments but it lacks

    Microsoft Teams need a searchable function for OneNote and WiKi. It is a great platform for documentation and task assignments but it lacks on the search.

  15. search

    The Search function does not search WiKi pages ?!
    We had thought that Teams might provide a good location to store information on procedures for each of our teams. But the search function does not locate them. We have paused our deployment of teams until this is resolved.

  16. makes it easy to see the search results of messages on the client.

    I want a function that makes it easy to see the search results of messages on the client.


    1. Accurately highlight keywords that are adjacent to full-width characters


    2. The search result window can be expanded and contracted for easy viewing.


    3. Enable to export search results to another file (CSV, EXL, TXT etc)

  17. Searching for the same terms on different devices returns different results

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Teams の検索窓に同じワードを入力しても、デバイスによって検索結果が異なるため、統一してほしい。
    Searching for the same terms on different devices returns different results


    ■Description(内容):
    同じワードで検索したところ、Teams クライアント アプリと Teams Web アプリでは、検索結果に "本来ヒットするべき文言" が表示されなかったが、ワードを分割して検索すると "本来ヒットするべき文言" が表示された。
    しかし、iPhone だと、完全なワードで検索しても、ワードを分割して検索しても、"本来ヒットするべき文言" が表示された。
    When searching for a given string in Japanese, the Teams client and the Teams Web app won’t return any hits if the string is not split up with a space or hyphen, however they will return results when it is split into parts. However on iPhone, the correct results are returned whether or not the string is split up or not. Please make this behavior consistent.

  18. I want to output content-search data to CSV.

    Currently, content-search has only a way to output to a PST file.
    This is very inconvenient to use data.
    We request the implementation of the function to output content-search as CSV data.

  19. Filtering/Searching using Teams

    We use your Teams as our daily log for information that we'd need to refer back to should there be any issues, but we may need to go back 6 months for example. I need a way of easily looking at specific dates or filtering to a certain period going back, but there doesn't seem to be this feature.
