  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Me gustaría que sea mas fácil el ver las tareas. Y en lugar de ir de grupo por grupo poder verlas todas ya clasificadas en sus secciones

    Que hagan como una sección donde ya puedas ver todas las tareas para facilitar y agilizar las cosas, y así no tener que estar buscando en cual tienes deberes y en cual no

  10. 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,…

  12. Word search function for chat conversations so that a month's worth (or more) can be searched for topics instead of scrolling

    Right now, I have more than a month's conversation with any one person. But, if I needed to look for a particular topic that we talked about, I can't find it because I have to scroll through every single response or topic of conversation. The search function should allow me to search for key words or phrases that will look for the information needed quickly.

  14. Restrict guest users' search function

    Guest users are able to search internal users that are not in the same team by type in their full address into the search bar.

    We want to restrict this search functionality from guest users.

  16. Search in Chatbox should be available

    Currently, in the chatbox, it shows the entire chat history but if we want to search a particular thing in that chat history, it is not possible. It would be good if we have such feature in Microsoft Teams,

  19. Ability to search chat for text strings with Control-F

    I can’t even do a Control-F in the chat window in the Teams app to find the survey link in the Microsoft class I’m taking. I mean, maybe if I open it up in a browser I can use the browser to do it, but give me a break.

    This should be basic functionality!

  20. ediscovery

    There is a limitation when searching for guests as it only shows a teams user id guid rather than showing the name which was typed while entering the meeting lobby. This can be retrieved from the meeting itself by navigating to chat, which includes which user joined along with its name.

    This creates additional unnecessary effort when needing to audit meeintgs and attendance.
