  1. Search doesn't default to people

    I expect to search people in teams to find who they are, or start a conversation with them. Every time I search I see no results and then I remember that I have to switch to "people" tab. I recommend having a global search; why have two tabs and an extra click to find people results? Reduces efficiency and creates user frustration.

  3. Wiki search results display

    When searching for a string using the top search/command bar the Wiki pages are included in the search with is good.
    Unfortunately the results can’t be displayed within Teams. you have to download an mht file and open it locally with a web browser.
    It sounds strange that documents created and edited within teams can’t be displayed when part of search results...
    It makes it almost useless

  5. Improved Search Categories

    It would be a nice QoL improvement when you searched and the window was narrow enough to have the left sidebar hidden, the left sidebar un-hid itself automatically.

  6. Allow searching files with partial file name

    Allow file search using partial file name. I see the file when i click on Files icon but when i search for the same using partial name using the 'Search or type a command' box, it does not give any result. I have to give exact and full name of the file for the search to work.

  7. Markers on recording to identify chat messages

    When meeting is recorded, it would be great if the chat marker is available on the recording. i.e. when clicking on chat message, it can provide a link to the recording time when the message was posted. The user can easily gain the context of the conversation if such functionality is available.

    When a meeting is recorded, chat feels very disconnected if reviewing the meeting content after the meeting has concluded. Looking at the chat history, the messages may seem very disconnected and without context. I recently had to reach out to folks on the chat and ask them to…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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,

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
