  1. Team name search does not work as expected.

    When I search team name using search bar, ONLY general channel in the team will show up. I would like to see all channels in the team I search.

  2. Enhanced Searching

    Enhanced Searching

    We try to use M.teams instead of skype but i could not find one usefull specification for us. Please enlighten me if i use it wrong. Usually people use search button for just names but i also use it for finding their phone numbers or vice versa from the phone numbers who calls us, i could have found the owner. Because of we have radiotelephone which shows only the numbers you entered before, we could not learn who called us before we called it. But in other app's we could did that. You saved our data into your…

  4. Search for comments including web links

    In our daily conversations, we almost always share weblinks (to documentation, third-party sites, etc.)...but it's incredibly laborious to go find "that link Bill shared last week".

    Let's add the ability to search for comments containing a web link (http/https).

  5. Recover library files searcher on SharePoint site from Teams disappeared with the last actualization.

    Now to search by words in Teams we need to go to the SharePoint page. It’s not logical, since, if the two applications (SharePoint and Teams) are integrated it's not natural you have to use both. Moreover, the general search bar that appears at the top of the SharePoint page is not as useful as it doesn’t specifically search for words within the library documents, but does it in all Teams Pages.

    Regarding request case: 20206972

  8. Searching for files should show files AND folders just like SharePoint

    When you use the search bar in SharePoint, it finds file results but also folders where you can click a folder result and open that folder. Teams for some reason only shows a list of files as a result, with the folder name printed small below it, but as far as I can tell there's no way to just open that folder vs the file.

  9. Searchable Transcript in Teams

    My Boss and I have playing around with an idea to be able to make your stream video transcripts searchable within teams so you could go straight to that point in the video just using Teams. You would be able to put a keyword in the search bar and go right to that point in the Teams environment.

  10. Customize function for user search results

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ユーザー検索の検索結果をカスタマイズする機能が欲しい
    Customize function for user search results


    ■Description(内容):
    ユーザーの検索結果で、次の例のように表示される項目をカスタマイズする機能が欲しい
    例1. ユーザー名だけ表示させる
    例2. ユーザー名とメールアドレスを表示させる など
    機能実装された場合個人情報保護の観点からも役立つと思います。

    We would like to be able to customize user search results to be displayed in the following ways:
    1) Only the users' names are shown
    2) Users' names and emails are shown
    Etc.
    We think this would also be useful from a personal information security standpoint as well.

  11. Searching in Chat

    It would be really useful if we can search something in a particular chat since it is really hard to scroll up to find the relevant string.
    The same feature which whatsapp gave.

  12. Search function is missing external company name search

    Search is not even looking into the email address in contacts to surface information. External contact is essential for us. Can we find this in Outlook? Of course, but that requires users to go there. Noticed some desire in the suggestions for restricting external contact search but that should be done by the company admin, not the Teams app.

  15. Search filter

    Having an option to search through group chats and being able to filter by user and by time frame (and maybe file type). So if you wanted to go back and find a message but unsure what it was and you only have aa rough timeframe then you would be able to filter messages by that person.

  19. Advanced Search

    Give me a separate "Advanced Search" button. Make it open a dialog.

    The dialog should allow me to limit the search to only one Team (or a set), or only one Channel (or a set), or by other criteria.

    It should allow me to do a regular expression search, if I want. If you want to be REALLY nice, it should help me write and test a regular expression prior to searching with it.

    I also want to specify whether I'm looking for the title of a message, or something in the message body, or the name of a file,…
