  1. search

    Wildcard search!
    When searching in chat messages i will not get a hit on 'test' when a message contains 'testing'. Exact matches should be first, and wildcard matches later.

  2. Unable to search using short name of a person

    If I have a Teams Colleague with the name Robert Vanderplank and I search for the name Rob Vanderplank the Teams Search results return no results. I have to enter his full name as Robert Vanderplank to find his contact.

    It would be very useful if Teams could search using partial names as well as the full name.

  3. Make Teams more like garbage can, less like landfill

    The more I use Teams, the messier it gets. It's like a landfill that just keeps growing. Email is like a garbage can, at least I'm able to clean out old junk that's no longer relevant.
    Today I tried to find a conversation I had with someone from May, without knowing a specific word to "search" for. I had to repeatedly press the "Home" button to go to the short-term top of the chat with that person, and repeat for a few minutes. Or if I knew a word to search, it would have taken me only to an individual…

  4. Searching

    Would like to be able to search within a chat and across chats easily. Searching within a chat is not possible and searching across chats is

  7. When pressing Alt + E

    When pressing Alt + E to search for college. On direct hit so would it be nice to get that user first so I can just press enter. Now "Search (More)" is appearing first so I have to arrow down to the college I wanted to chat with.

  8. Specific search

    Search inside specific chats with other people and the ability to jump to the message so that the surrounding messages can be read and not just that message.
    not all searches can be pinpointed like a phone number. I remember the context but not the specific message. I can find the message in the general search then have to go into that chat and scroll to that date. Searching within a specific chat with another individual would be much more useful than searching all my chats.

  9. Conversation subject in chat search

    Chat Search results to include Conversation Subject

    It would be very useful if the search results would include / display the conversation subject. currently search only shows the content.

  11. filter date

    In a big organization environment, we have a lot of chats, Teams channel going on. When trying to search certain thread/conversations, filter options built in Teams work fine for the most. But when trying to search certain dates to see the whole thread, it is kind of impossible, without having an option to select date range with calendar pop up to choose the date ranges. without this feature, I am having to go scroll up and down to find the exact date, time etc. Real pain....
    So far with date range filter, it is set to certain period of time:…

  14. Kick your development team **********

    How is it you can release a commercial product that has wiki functionality and yet your search does not cover wiki pages properly.

    Utterly stupid or magnificently arrogant.

    Pick one.

  15. Make the bookmark display only the bookmarked part of the conversation

    Bookmarks would be a whole lot more powerful when it would only display the bookmarked conversation - should not be too difficult, right?

    (the current setting only 'jumps' back in the timeline with all the other conversations on display, too - which isn't helpful when trying to focus only on my bookmarked conversation, really)

  16. search

    When you search for a team, then click on a team, the navigation pane does not move to that team so you can't see the channels. You still have to manually find the team in the list to see the channels within the team.
    Clicking search result should make the navigation pane jump to that team and expand it to see the channels.

  19. Sharepoint central search center and teams

    Teams data are secure trimmed so SP central search should offer results for public and private teams include main classifications, scopes like documents , channels , etc because the SP Intranet is the starting point for everyone, if not alternate vendor for central search required.

  20. It would be helpful to be able to search Subject Lines or # identified words

    It would be helpful to be able to search by Subject Line or to be able to mark key words with a # to search later. When I search for #, any words that I have marked with # would show up.
