    Search function across multiple TABs within a channel

    We have multiple wiki tabs, containing various product information, within a channel. Users would like to be able to search for words across all wikis to be able to find a product that could be in any of the wikis.

  2. People search don't use middle initial or punctuation

    When searching for people don't use middle initial as part of your matching criteria. Most people don't know what other people's middle initials are. Searching on "Jane Doe" should find "Jane X. Doe" or any other combination of Jane Doe with middle initials or none. Currently I get no matches at all.

    Additionally within our company some folks have a middle initial with a period and others don't. If I do know a middle initial it should match with or without the period. For example "Jane X. Doe" should match "Jane X Doe".

  6. Please add a search feature within chats.

    Please add a search feature within chats, to allow for finding particular conversations etc more convenient. It can be quite difficult scrolling through weeks of conversation, simply to find a quote from someone.

  8. Improve breadcrumbs in search results to show thread title

    The breadcrumb trail only shows the team conversation area. It should also show the title if there is a title to the thread. That way you can quickly tell if you're in the right area before you respond about a topic that you need to update. Keyword does not always give much filtering, so there may be a lot of results showing.

  10. Include hidden conversations in search results

    After hiding a conversation, Search does not get results from that conversation. Please add a toggle or setting to allow us to search across hidden posts.

  13. 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.

    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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
