  1. provide an online, written, operators manual.

    Provide a written operators manual that can be accessed online. for those of us who don't learn as well by watching a video this would be a tremendous help. It also provides a reference that we can return to as needed when having trouble navigating the stystem.

  2. search options

    Search functionality:
    1. Limit Search To:
    * All of Microsoft Teams
    * All Chats
    * Only chats including [select input]
    * All Teams
    * Only Team(s) [select]
    * All channels in a team
    * Only channel(s) [select]

    The search function is currently very poorly received across our area because it is just a massive search string.

    I would like the ability to restrict a search by Team and/or Channel and/or Individual
    In order to have a more targeted search result
    So that I can more quickly and efficiently find the correct result.

    Additionally - searching in User Feedback Forums is…

  3. Obtain more @mentions by running /mentions in Teams

    I would like to obtain more @mentions by running /mentions in Teams. Currently we can get @mentions sent within the last one month.It would be great if I can customize days/months which Teams looks up from, and I want to get more results from more than last one month.

  5. Search result should not show the deleted user in Teams

    Once you delete user A and recreate the same user in Teams, search result shows both deleted and recreated user when you try to find (search) user A.
    Therefore, you might send a message to the deleted user and it can cause miscommunication with the active user. I strongly request you to improve this behavior immediately. The deleted user should not be searchable in Teams.

  7. User search in Teams

    With the user search in Teams and its behavior followed by ABP, it would be great that we could exceptionally search a certain domain.

  8. Customize settings in user search in Teams

    It would be great to set exceptional view settings for user search functionality in Teams. Ideally, the view format would be similar as ABP.

  11. Consolidated search of links and attachments that can be filtered by chat/channel.

    File search exists, but would be improved by having chat/channel filters.

    More importantly is that we need to be able to search all documents, even those that weren't put in the files section, but we're just attachments in threads. Additionally all links and docs should be captured and referenceable from a straightforward UI container element that consolidates all of them.

  13. Index HTML files content within the search engine

    Content of the HTML files hosted in Teams should be indexed by the search engine.

  14. Enable to delete the cache data of chat actions for users

    To hide users who do not use Microsoft Teams from the search result, we turn on the option, Scope directory search using an Exchange address book policy. This option helps to hide users from the search result, who do not have SIP address or who are hidden from GAL.
    However, if users who had chatted before or been belonged to any organization-wide team, those cache data in the cloud makes users be visible in the search result.
    There is no feature to delete the cache data at this time, so it is impossible to hide those users from the search…

  15. Search for anything over all teams (also public team I'm not member)

    I'd like to find anything I'm looking for even I'm not a member of a public team. Maybe there should be a possibility do decide if I like to search only within teams I'm member or teams I'm member and all public teams.

  19. Create a search function for past chats and past files

    I think it would be a good idea to add a search function for the past chats and past files. This would enhance efficiency significantly.

  20. Can't share a search result with a teammate

    Sometimes I search for a file for someone else. Once I find that file, I can't share it!
    1. The "Start Conversation" button is not available! MS Teams is all about conversations yet you can't converse on a search result! It is odd that that would go away just because I used search instead of browse to find the file.

    2. There is no sign of a file pathname. If I could at least see the pathname, I could then navigate to the asset and use start conversation there. Or if there was a "copy link" I could go old…
