  1. 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.

  3. Search content by partial strings

    We are not able to use a partial string when searching in conversations or for names of files shared in conversations. Example: file name is "Collaboration Productivity Overview." I can use one of these words and find the file, but I cannot use part of a word such as "collab" or "Prod" and locate the file. It finds onlt references that used these exact characters. This becomes a problem when we are looking for reference to a client, whose name is spelled in several different ways by different users. If we could enter just the first few letters, or use…

  7. Allow activity, chat and channels to be filtered by date only, no search text

    Allow activity, chat and channels to be filtered by date only, no search text. In the current implementation you are required to enter search text before the date filter is available. Users should be allowed to filter by date without the need to enter other search criterial. Teams enables a large of communication to take place and is easy to fall behind, especially after being away from the office for vacations, training, or other reasons. Having the ability to filter by date without additional criteria would allow you to more easily catch up by showing a list of communication for…

  8. Favorite Search - Saved Searches

    Have the option to pin to favorites bar "Saved Searches", or "Virtual channels" or "Alert Channels" or whavetever the name, you get the idea.. be able to define a search and get an unread count when there are matches on it. Ideal to track common terms across all of the teams you are connected to.

  10. Searching - go to chat

    When I finally find the message that contains a phrase that I was searching, I would like to see it in a wider context. By clicking 'go to chat' I understand 'go to chat, where the phrase was found'. Now 'go to chat' leads me to the last message from the chat.

  11. Search bar- lower case, uppercase matters in search...ruins functionality.

    Search bar needs to find items w/out taking into account caps or lowercase. ex TENNIS or tennis- ruins functionality.

  12. search auto-populate best option

    When you search, it would be great if the search tool started to automatically populate what it thinks is the best option. This would allow you to just hit Enter if it is on the right search choice instead of being forced to use the mouse or arrows to select the right option.

  13. Improved search that searches through everything

    If I´m trying to use Teams as my main hub of communications it would be handy if teams search can search for anything and everything.

    It would search my emails, files, chats, team discussions, groups, sharepoint etc. Basically the extent of my O365 reach.

    To many times a file can´t be found as you can´t remember where you put it, to many times you can´t remember if the discussion was via teams, email or chat etc.

  14. search twitter feed

    It would be great if it was possible to search for specific # and @ in the Twitter Connector. This is especially useful if you follow several tags/mentioned.

  15. Channel search results should open the whole thread

    When searching for something from a channel conversation, the results returned are atomic, so I cannot find the whole context of the thread.

    Repro steps:
    1) Have a conversation in a channel about a complex topic (in this case, using a VPN)
    2) Allow several other conversations to happen in channel, where scrolling is no longer a convenient way to find it
    3) Search for your old conversation by keyword
    4) Select the proper result in the search results pane

    Expected: You are now at that post in the conversation
    Currently: A lot of results are in the "main" pane,…

  16. comtence

    Hi,
    Just a quick suggestion as we have decided to go all-in on Teams in my company, which means leaving our SharePoint Intranet platform as well.

    I was just considering if, Microsoft is planning to visualize competences on user profiles better in teams than it is today - it would be great. I was just thinking about a situation where I receive a call and in a hurry must find a ressource with this competence

    Today:
    Search for user in team > I see basic information like address; phone number, etc. No competences.

    If Microsoft is planning to use Teams…

  18. Matching Channels Should Show Up in Team Search

    Channel names that match a search in "Team Search" should show up in the search along with the team they are a part of.

    Depending on how we use the two entities they could be relatively interchangable - a user searching should not have to know ahead of time that the "abc" channel they are looking for is a part of "xyz team"

  19. Ctrl-F support (Focus on "Search")

    Ctrl-F should focus on the search field, like Skype.

  20. Selecting Team from Team Search Results Should Highlight and Expand Team on Left

    I have a few hundred teams. When I use the search under Teams to find the Team I want, and click it, it does show the correct team on the right, but suppose I didn't want the General channel, suppose I wanted another channel, now I must click the team name at the top ("Team_Name > General"), then click "Channels" and click the channel I wanted.

    This is because in my list of a few hundred teams, I cannot be bothered to scroll through the long list of team names on the left navigation tree.

    It would be better if,…
