  1. Open folder from search results

    Often we need to access a folder that a file is located within. Search only allows opening the file, not opening the folder location. At a minimum, it should display the folder location so that we can browse there manually.

  2. Now that Bing can connect with LinkedIn, offer data around what job functions/industries search on specific keywords

    Provide data and insights around who is searching (as in from what industries and/or job functions) for an advertisers set of keywords. Also offer intel on what users from a specific industry or job functions are actually searching across a specific topic (as a healthcare advertiser, this would mean across specific disease states).

  3. Search function on mobile app should also show files.

    When you search on desktop team app the results ‚messages‘ ‚members‘ and ‚files‘. When you search on mobile app (iOS) the search result is only ‚messages‘ and ‚ members‘. You should also search files on mobile apps.

  4. a-z search

    The search feature in the A-Z Contacts section of Calls does not work. I have tried typing in partial names, complete names that are exact matches of existing contacts, and phone numbers of existing contacts... but when I hit enter after typing in that field, my list of contacts is not narrowed down.

  6. Search teams in mobile app

    Search in the iOS mobile app does not return teams names, so the only way to find a specific team seems to be scrolling through the whole teams list. Could you please add this feature?

  7. navigation history

    Can the < > navigation arrows have a history (right click) to jump to a specific item, instead of doing a lot of clicks to go back and forward (alike the browsers)

  8. Invariant Culture User Search

    When searching for users the search should be in an invariant culture. Since there are many ways to type a name in different regions it's very uncomfortable having to find the correct spelling for a name. Ej. "José" should be a result for search "Jose" as I don't know if the name has a mark or not or whether it was even created correctly in Active Directory.

  9. Support the use of hashtags to be criteria for a Channel, like Search Folders

    Support the use of hashtags to be criteria for a Channel, kind of like Search Folders. That way, you can be made aware of all conversations about #topicofinterest

  10. Username search fails sometimes

    Searching for people by their AD username sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. It's incredibly frustrating, especially if they fall into/out of the suggestions as you type more letters of their name.

    For example, there are certain people I consistently can never find by username, but I can find them by searching their last name. Other people can be found by username just fine.

  11. Position unread chats on top of search box

    When I am in search box, before I start typing contact name or chat name I would like to see chats/channels with unread messages in the list and be able to select them with tabulator before hitting Enter to select.

  12. Search bar searching within connected cloud folders

    I use the box cloud sync to house files. While it is convenient to access the files in my box folders from the teams menu it is silly that the search bar does not search within connected folders.

  14. Sort your feedback space by votes

    Your feedback issues have a vote count associated with them. Make that the default sorting method, favoring newer submissions in the case of a tie.

    They appear to currently be unsorted?

  18. Include Folders in Search Results

    Please Include folders in the Search results. This works in Cortana as well as File explorer but unfortunately does not inside the Teams app.

  19. improved search functions.

    searching channel specific wiki and file contents for key words does not appear to be implemented. An advanced search dialogue would be appreciated.

  20. Search button scoped to the current active screen

    Everywhere you go in Teams, you should have a search button that automatically filters to the scope of the active screen. Then, whent he search is executed, an option to widen the search to beyond the initial scope.

    So in summary:
    1. Search command bar continues as it does today
    2. New Search button at the bottom of the conversation tab which pre-filters the search results to just that channel
    3. New Search button at the top of Files in the Files tab to search just that location
    4. New Search button at the bottom of the chat window to…
