  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Make the search as office.com one, a global search !

    We want teams to be our digital workplace where we chat, access documents, tasks from planner, website from tabs, bots etc.

    The problem with search is that is doesn't let us search in the entire tenant content such as office.com search.

    Is there a way that could be achieved ?

    Thank you,

  7. Ability to search a Team and a Channel

    Searching should be able to be narrowed and limited to the scope of what is currently selected. That would go for Chats, Teams level, Team level, channel level. It would also be nice to access the indexed content in OneNote and other Office files and text files.

  8. Team search in iOS

    I belong to many teams. The search field doesn’t let me type in a name and go to them. It only searches on conversations and people. I just want to go to the Team site itself!

  11. Connector search support

    Content posted by Connectors (e.g. RSS Feeds, VSTS, Jira, Yammer, etc.) should be included in search results. Having this show up in "messages" is fine/expected but right now searches for things that we know are in conversations do not show up.

    Many of us use Teams to aggregate information from multiple places and without search working for connectors, it makes the goal of making Teams the only place one needs to go more difficult.

  12. Extend Application Search

    It would be great if the search would also search content of Microsoft services as a start (tabs specifically). For example, search Stream video titles, Planner tasks, VSTS items, or PowerBI Dashboards. I would not expect this to work for "Website" of course. These would be an additional category next to the current messages, people, and files choices. To support 3rd party, perhaps there could be some way for a developer to specify that their app also has search and then you could include a GitHub or category in the future.

  13. Add slash command to start chat with somone

    You already have /call -- what about /chat? A much more common use case for me.

  14. Integration Delve Profiles in Teams

    Make Delve Profiles (own Profile and that of others) available in Teams and include profile content in Teams-Search.

    Delve Profiles are good fo showing skills and projects of our employees.

    But the Profiles and there information are not accessible in Teams which breaks our usecase.

  16. search then sort by date modified

    Doing a search in explorer, waiting for it to complete, then clicking on the "Date Modified" column to sort by most recent causes Windows to start the search all over again. This is frustrating when searching a large directory, because I already wait for the search to complete, then after the results have come up, I should be able to simply sort the results that are already found by their modified date. But instead, I believe due to a bug, Windows Search thinks it has to start the search all over again.

  18. "Best match" category for search results

    Similar to how search works in Windows 10, I would like search results to show me all search results first in a "best result" tab then allow me to browse those results by using "messages", "people", and "files" tabs.

    Right now if I search on a term that is only present in a file the results window shows nothing because its defaulting to the messages tab. At the very least show the number of results on each tab.

  20. Add a navigation pane for conversations

    Can we have a pane for conversations tab that would show all the subjects?

    It would look like a navigation pane in MS Word, but instead of showing headers in a document it would show conversation subjects.

    This would allow you to quickly browse the conversation tab by subjects in a similar way you do that with a word document.
