  1. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. Text search option on individual chat or on a group chat

    Search options are very limited and not very helpful. Please allow to search a text in respective chatbox or respective group. Similar to how whatsapp is integrated.
    We are using Teams as a centralized chat option in our organization and its really difficult to search and traceback some of the information.

  9. Have each folder sort A-Z

    Every time I create a new folder it stays at the top, but I need them to sort A-Z or at least have the option to sort.

  11. Search capability in dialog box for adding cloud storage to Files tab.

    Search capability in dialog box for adding cloud storage to Files tab. Not sure that the list order is at this time. Alpha order would be better. A quick search box, better.

  12. Exclude retired users from the Teams search result

    Teams user search feature finds users who retired and removed from AAD, because it looks up them through cache. It’s inconvenient that we have to clear those caches from Teams client each time, so I would like you to improve the search feature to set aside users who are not existed in AAD.

  13. Search Messages by User Profile Property

    My customer (in GCC) is a large agency with multiple locations. The BAs at each location would like to be able to search for all messages across al teams by users at their location in, say, the past day to ensure all needs are being met. Their location is a profile property. Please add the capability to perform a global advanced search for messages where a user property matches given text (wildcard). Alternatively, perform a global advanced search for messages where a user is in a given O365 Group or Security Group. They have security groups which have all location…

  14. Filter on Task description, Checklist Items and Comments

    Enhance the Filter feature in the Teams Planner tab in the following ways:
    1. Typing in a filter/search term should find words in a Task description (not just the Task title)
    2. Typing in a filter/search term should find words in Task Checklist Items and Comments as well
    3. Typing in a persons name should filter the people in the list so you don't have to scroll through people to find the person you want to filter by.

    *Note: Trello already does this.

  15. Get a better feedback system. This is total rubbish.

    This is a waste of space. I come to this site to help and it is a maelstrom of mess. I won’t be back.

  16. Make search return messages in context of the conversation again!

    This used to be a feature, but now you've removed it?

    If I want to find a conversation I had with someone 6 months ago, my only option is to scroll up, wait for messages to load, scroll up some more, wait some more and so on until I finally reach that part of the conversation timeline.

    Search used to return messages that, when clicked on, took me to the place on the timeline where we had the discussion I'm looking for. Now clicking on the message only shows the message in isolation with no way of seeing it in…

  17. Search in iOS/iPadOS should work as web and/or desktop version

    The search experience now is not up to par.

    It behaves quite different compared to the desktop version. Also missing the possibility to navigate fast between teams and/or channels and performing commands in the mobile version.

    Pls make it a coherent experience between the platforms. At the moment I can’t use Teams as efficient on my iPad app. Often find myself forced to use the web version instead. Although that one works quite well since iPadOS have full desktop web experience now.

  18. Search needs the same abilities as SharePoint and Search needs to be reworked

    No one likes the results provided by Search. People are looking to use # tags and other markers to be able to find their content. People love SharePoint's searchability, works fantastic for files and file content, that needs to be brought to Teams. Some people also get lost of what they are searching for as Teams seems to default to categories of search and not even realize it. There needs to be searching for Team Names, Channel names, channel chat content, IM's, files and clearly marked as such. Believe it or not, this single thing is keeping my company from…

  19. Searching team members with their designation

    In a huge Organization usually, there is a lot of hiring and many people leave often. there is a rotation of people changing their designations every now and then. Hence, if a person/ team member can be searched by her/his designation, it will be a lot easier to find team members.

  20. Expand the highlighted message from search results

    1. search for a string found in a long message
    2. find message in messages tab
    3. click message
    4. see message collapsed in conversations tab

    This happened to me, while looking for a URL, I couldn’t tell I was looking at the right message because the message it was in was collapsed.
