  1. Include Outlook Contacts in Calls Contact list

    Include Office 365 Outlook Contacts (local) in the Contacts of calls in a way that the data displayed can be changed to fit the needs of the user.

    Outlook contacts are displayed (Thank you) but it is a 1985 display with no customization. Let us control the fields displayed and the size of each field to make this something other than an irritation.

  2. Files search results link back to Team or Channel

    When searching for a file the result will show which team / channel the file is from, but provides no direct way to go to that team / channel.

    Chat results when select show you the tabs for that team and the header provides a breadcrumb to take you to the team. This provides context for the result and a way into related team/channel content.

    File results should provide some way to establish the context for the file and to access other materials from the team/channel working with the file.

  3. Include team private chat title in search

    When I've renamed a teams group chat I am not able to find the chat with search if I search on the group title. Searching on words in the chat does work, but I would like to search on the group chat title/name.

  4. search conversations

    The Search in Teams is not finding parts of keywords in the start of a conversation, only in the comments. If you search for the complete word, it will be found in the start of a conversation.

    You can find an example in my screenshot (sorry for German inside that screen).

    I expected that this is an error/incident. But Premier support told me, that this is "by design". So now we have to vote for a default function of every search...

  7. see all available teams to join

    New employees want to find an join teams of interest in the organisation. as they are new the suggestions are empty so unless they are told what to join they are in the dark as to what is available. We also get duplicate teams set up simply because employees are unaware of the existence of teams.
    Please can we have a way on the join a team page to list all teams so people can request access to private or join public teams that look interesting.
    This lack of visibility is creating silos of data and pushing people to alternate…

  8. Search setting for guest users in Microsoft Teams

    I would like you add a specific search setting that allows below:

    1. When a user performs user search, s/he is able to search users in the same tenant.
    2. At mean time, when a guest user performs a search, s/he can search only guest users in the team (or Office 365 group) which s/he is belonging to.

  9. I would like you to add search methods such as Soft-match and suffix search when finding user in Teams

    I would like you to implement Soft-match and suffix search feature when searching users in Teams. Because the partial suffix search doesn’t perfectly work and sometimes we can’t retrieve expected search results unless using prefix or full keywords.

  12. onenote online search entire notebook

    I just finished moving onenote notebook sections to our new MS Teams notebook. problem is that search functionality is a joke. it only allows searching for keywords on a particular section or page. why can't it search the entire notebook? please make this happen. Its hard enough convincing an aging demographic of workers to accept newer technology, but it becomes a laughable task when something as Common as search is not even done correct

  13. search redirect to find message block

    For group message search wil not take you to the block where you acutally made the converastion rather than just shows the message.

    This should be working similar to messages found for a single user.

  15. Search by position in company

    Because of the high flow of workers in some departments, it would be really useful if the search would have capabilitiy to find people by their job title since there are people who need to communicate but often only have a knowledge of the title, not the name.

  17. After search for a document in teams, show the folder it lives in and allow direct access to its link

    After search, for files, in Teams, one can see the list of results, but 1 a) one can not find out where (in which team/channel/folder) the found document lives.
    b) one can not get a URL link to the document (and since it is not possible to see where the document lives, can't even get it indirectly.

    Currently the workaround it so open the document, save as, and from save as see where it is proposed to be saved.

    Often we search because we need to tell someone else where to find the information and the above fixes will help…

  18. filter/sort non-channel unread chat messages

    "/unread" should also reveal unread non-channel chat conversations.

    "Feed" should also include non-channel chat activity.

    Also, implement (or create option to) sort unread non-channel chat messages to above pinned messages that are not also unread.

  19. Diacritic insensitive text search

    Currently the message search is diacritic sensitive. Fox example, if you type a phrase like "naive" or "resume", the result set on the Messages tab will contain the exact matches only, therefore the alternative forms like "naïve" or "résumé" will be missing, and vice versa.

    This behaviour particularly affects non-English languages where accents are frequently used and it makes text search inaccurate.

    It would be nice if all versions matched regardless of whether diacritics were typed or not.

  20. Search tab

    Add an option to search for specific words during a conversation, the way Whatsapp highlights the word to show in what conversation has been used.
