  4. Filter out Messages that have been replied to

    Looking for the ability to see only messages in a teams channel that have not been replied to. We rely heavily on teams as a way to track items. It would be handy to have a way to show our other coworkers what still needs to be done.

    ■Description(内容):
    現在社内のやりとりを Teams で網羅しています。
    その中で業務に関するファイルのやり取りなどを確認する際、Teams 内で検索を行いファイルにアクセスしておりますが、検索の制度が悪く非常に使いにくいです。
    さらなる効率化を図るためにも、機能の拡張を要望します。

    When searching the files shared in Teams within our organization, we are not able to find those files smoothly because the search accuracy is not good enough.
    To improve work efficiency, we hope the search feature in Teams will be more accurate.

  9. Highlight search results in the MS Teams file viewer

    The search function in Teams is great, but I would like Teams to highlight search results not only in chats or conversations but also in the files tab. Currently, when searching for a term, it will find all files (docx, pdf, etc...) that include this term somewhere in the file, but one has to open each file manually in its application and use CRTL+F to actually find the term within the file.

    It would be great to have all mentions of the search term highlighted in the file viewer directly in teams. Possibly with a little bar, allowing to jump…

  10. Optional disable of 'read more', allowing unrolled scroll back over older messages

    On similar apps (eg Slack..) I can quickly review old chats by, well, scrolling back. Teams inhibits me from doing this as it appears to insist on 'folding' any form of extended chat. It would be great if this 'folding' was user configurable.

  11. I want to search a file provided in private chat

    Currently, I cannot search a file provided in private chat.
    The search area seems only "Teams" and excepted private chat.
    We sometimes upload files through both Team and private chat, so please expand the search area of Teams APP to private chat files.

  12. Disable app suggestions in search bar

    I have literally never wanted to access/add/interact with OpsGenie, Informacast, App Studio, or any of the apps that appear in the search suggestions. What's worse, someone decided that app suggestions should float to the top of search results, which actively obstructs results I'm actually interested in.

    Please provide an option to turn this off!

  13. The search for /saved seems to have been made worse recently making it harder to scroll through and action

    The /saved search results panel isn't as user friendly. For example it doesn't always highlight the selection, it doesn't visually indicate it either with the purple flag. There for you have to potentially click on multiple items to find the saved item. It also doesn't appear to have as much context on where the search is in your teams/channels.

  14. when will wiki articles be searchable?

    I have a lot of content stored in wiki articles in teams and it is extremely difficult for other users to find the content they want. It's very hard to believe this has not been built into the top search function in teams.

  15. Enable to output content search log for each channel

    When outputting a log from content search, the channel can not be specified and it becomes a team unit.
    Since it is a huge amount of information to output only the log of a specific channel, I want you to be able to specify for each channel you want to output.

  17. Search in sections in a specific channel

    Can we get a search opportunity that can search after specific words that are written directly in a certain section in a channel (eg in a section in a wiki)

  18. Improvements for User search results

    Make user search in Teams consistent

    In Teams, we are seeing different results depending on the method we use to search for a user in Teams.

    1.In Chat, if you type a user name out in the Search area and go to people, what comes back is the name ALONG with their UPN ID (Like XZXXX1@nam.corp.conteso.com)
    2. In Chat, if you go to just start a chat with someone, and type in their name you will see the name along with their USER ID only (like XZXXX1)
    3. In a channel, if you go to mention a person using…

  19. Show entire conversation on with search results

    Currently when you search for older messages and select a result Teams will only return the one result. If it's a conversation from 3 months ago where I only know a handful of words I really am looking for some context, and showing the surrounding messages (like slack or discord) would help a ton.

  20. View my full activity history

    GDPR gives Europeans a right to ask for all the saved personal information and it seems to be the only way to get to view my personal activity history. Seriously, why we can't properly view our own activity history, it only shows few lines and doesn't offer option to search farther away? Should have a date filter as well to search for specific dates and full text search. I want full access to my own self written data.
