  1. Allow internal users to see the list of all users in his organization via Teams

    I would like you to implement a feature that internal users could see the list of all users in his organization via Teams. When you search with surname in Teams, you couldn’t see all users who match with the surname in the search result. So, you might misunderstand the user does not exist as he is not in the result.

  3. Search filter can be added to private one-to-one chat pages

    Search option if added to private one-to-one chat pages, it would be easier to search by just the text word most related in the history of conversations had.
    so it makes easier to lookup for the previous conversations, rather having to scroll up or down

  5. Search results dont display enough relevant info

    one column wide of truncated text with the speakers name isnt enough. I need to know and filter/sort on where it was said.

  8. Saved option should be under username

    Saved option should be under username, same like chat, files, organization and activity

    And that option should reflect the things, which we have saved in the chat

  10. Make Search FASTER

    Improve performance of search. It is too slow especially for those used to search function in Skype.

  14. Ability to serach users by their 'display name'

    Right now it is not possible to serach user by their 'display name'. Some companies are adding eg. team name to user display name. Following this example it is impossible to find users using team name.

  15. Results when searching for a user

    After changing the user's settings, searching in Teams does not take effect.
    We request that you improve the function so that it is reflected immediately.

    It would be helpful,if we have filter option for messages in teams.And also it will be good if we can see the messages sent by a particular person in a group.
    A separate folder for videos, means if we send a video it should go to that folder. It will be easy to filter.

  17. find teams from main search bar

    When we do a search from the main search bar, we should get Teams as one of the result types, like we do for Message, Peoples and Files. Search for teams should find any team that has the search term in the team name, it should not be constrained by the beginning of the team name.

  18. Hashtag threads and meetings

    I would like to be able to tag threads, meeting, files and be able to use the tags for searching within a channel and also in over all search.

    Perhaps even use the save function to quickly filter a channel on items I have saved. This would make it even more efficient to get to “just that” information I am looking for.

  19. Security & Compliance Search/Legal Hold Search Function to search based on a One to Many Named Group Chat

    Currently if there is a Private One to Many Named Chat. There is no ability to search based on the Title/Subject of that chat.

    If there was a Legal Hold Request for that Named Chat an/or an Investigation where that named chat was specifically in question. It would allow for easy archival, retrieval and exporting of just that chat.

    This would assist in any sort of Investigation or allegation of in appropriate behavior in that chat.

    Currently, we are using Microsoft Teams for communication across the company, as well as communication for business purposes.
    When I access the information related to business, I type into the search bar at the top of the Microsoft Teams client screen.
    However, it often happens that search function doesn’t return any hits from the past even with filters.
    Also, in the case of the Japanese language, due to the word breaker feature, it takes a long…
