  1. Regarding the user search function in Microsoft Teams

    Regarding the user search function in Microsoft Teams

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams において、"人、キーワードの検索、またはコマンド入力" セクションにユーザー名を入力した際に、プライベート チャットの内容しか表示されず使い勝手が悪いため、チームでの会話内容をユーザーで絞込検索が可能な機能の実装を希望します。
    併せて、ユーザー選択時の "最新情報" セクションに、チーム チャットの "件名" を表示する機能の実装を希望します。

    In Microsoft Teams, when you enter a user name into the “Search for or type a command” section, only the most recent content of the private chat with them is shown, which is difficult to use. I would like the option of having the content of the team chat with the users displayed instead. It would also be useful to have the chat title be available in the “Recent” tab contents for…

  2. Get user's details directly from results in search bar without starting chat draft

    Hello,
    it would be great to implement a feature to show the user's details (like in SfB) directly from the search bar without opening a new chat draft with the user and switching to chat and back.

    Thank you for considering.
    JH

  3. #Hashtags - for better search capabilities

    Hi.
    I'm often getting cunfused by the many teams I'm part of, when trying to find a document. To be able to add a #hashtag on documents, would make them easier to find. In addition, it would be possible to look.up all documents related to one "topic" (ex. a project), quick and easy.

  6. Searching within Files: "CTRL F" as a funtional feature.

    This is CLEARLY an issue.

    We have a Team that our companies contribute and combine files internationally, and for each country.

    We created this as an "EASY" way to find files for our clients, especially for on Service Techs in the field.

    These specific folders strictly contain PDF files.
    In order to "search" one must open in SharePoint, then convert into an Excel file. Files are continuously added and overwritten updated paperwork, deeming the Excel spreadsheets in perpetuity obsolete.

    This is so unnecessary, and as many have suggested before me - CRTL F - is the optimal way to go.…

  7. include more Active directory information

    include active directory information in the search.
    like location, so if I type a city it will show all the members in that city.
    also include the other fields of information from active directory in the contact space, like cell phone numbers

  8. Campus maps in teams

    I work is a large campus (multiple floors, large building). All rooms are in Teams so we can book them for an appointment. today i needed to find a room and I thought it would be great if I could just type in the room number and then see a map where the room is and how to get there.... So which building, which floor, which corner of the building and perhaps (mapped to Bing Maps) show me a route to get there.

  9. Make an activity report - what was sent @ me and what I typed over last X days

    Make an activity report - what was sent @ me and what I typed over last X days. During my weekly reviews - what I did and what people asked me to do, I use my calendar and sent items from email - would be nice to see what I answered and asked in chats to know if I forgot to follow up etc.

  10. Search for meeting by name

    When you use the top search bar in teams, it doesn't appear to return the names of meetings or of the recordings associated with them. That makes it really difficult to find a previous meeting on a specific topic.

  11. Search by employee username via Teams chat

    Would be fantastic if Teams gave us the ability to store a unique user ID to be searchable in Teams chat along with the user's name (e.g. "Denver, John, DEN66834").Our company uses usernames, often as the only identifier on a marked-up document or an article. If I do not know the person's first and last name, I cannot look them up on Teams to ask for clarifications.

  13. Search Feature

    Teams should have a search feature. If it logs all the chat then it should allow the users to search keywords on all chats too.

  14. MS Teams Search only finds recent items in channels. It is not working for anything older.

    The search functionality used to work far better, but it now only finds items from the past 90 days or so when looking for the keyword(s) within Teams channels. It's a significant limitation, and we are not sure why this has happened.

  15. Enable eDiscovery to search chats and files which have been edited or deleted

    We currently cannot audit chats and files which have been deleted or edited in Microsoft Teams unless we enable the retention policy. It would be great if we could use eDiscovery function to search them without using the retention policy.

    Outlook email messages saved into a channel can be previewed, but the content does not appear to be included in search results for files.

  18. Teams Seach Extending to Team Names, Channel Names, Tab Names, and Planner Tasks

    Right now when you search in Teams you get 3 search result options: Messages, People, and Files. I like these, but I wish there was a way for you to search and also have it come up with Team Names, Channel names, tab names, and planner tasks. We are trying to use Teams as an Engineering firm and it would be great to search for a project number and find literally everything within Teams associated with that project number come up.

  19. Visual cue for search results

    Search is excellent at hiding results. The problem is pre-sorting everything by tabs. This may seem intuitive to developers, but without some kind of visual cue that there's even a result in a tab, it's not obvious at all to users. The results are effectively hidden, or, you need to perform extra clicks to the tabs you want in order to see if there's anything there. I would suggest putting all the results into a single list, grouped by type, rather than hidden behind tabs (which may be empty, for all you know before you click them). Failing that, at…

  20. Search within Chat window

    Functionality to search the string within the chat window between two individuals. For example: I have chatted with my colleague about some project say "abc". Now after few months if i go back to chat window to look for the project discussion, I should be able to search with "abc" string and get my chat what we discussed long back.
