  1. 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.

  2. Search chat history by date, use fuzzy matching; allow navigation of chat by date

    Searching in chat history should support fuzzy matching (similar to searching in Bing). It should be possible to search in a chat with a specific user, or in a specific group / channel.

    Further, results should include the date and time of the messages. This is important to find information when you know approximately when the conversation took place.

    It should be also possible to filter chat history by date, and navigate to chat sections within a range of time.

  5. Make search filters icon more accessible

    Once you hit enter on a search, a filter icon appears on the search results tab. That filter icon exposes many filtering parameters but they are not in an intuitive/visible spot. Instead of hiding that beautiful search feature, put it on the right side of the search bar so that people can find it easily. Also, most people think that the search feature does not have filters at all. This will solve a lot of the results in the "search ideas" here

  6. Integrate Teams chat into Outlook email search so that Outlook email search results include relevant Teams chats (like Skype does)

    Integrate Teams chat into Outlook email search so that Outlook email search results include relevant Teams chats (like how relevant Skype chats are included in a search done in Outlook email).

  7. I want to be able to chat only users who want to allow chat

    Since the search of other users is enabled in the default state of the Teams, I want to be able to chat only users who want to allow chat.

  9. search for old chat in mobile app doesn't scroll to selected message

    In the mobile app (Android), search for a historical chat (old enough to not be initially visible when chatting with that individual). When clicking on that search result, the chat channel is pulled up but not scrolled to that message.

    I was searching for a chat from 11/26 today (3/4). This is a frequently used chat, so would take forever to scroll up.

    This works correctly in the app on Windows.

  10. Sorting Team members

    A small, but very useful improvement would be: To be able to sort the Members of a Team under "Manage team" menu, by Status, Name, Title, Location, Role, etc.

  11. Add Semi-Private Teams that are searchable and joining is by request

    Last February (2018), Microsoft announced that private teams would be discoverable by searching. After negative user feedback, the updated was revoked.

    To solve the problem of not being able to search for teams that are not public (which anyone can join), I would suggest that in addition to Private, Public, and Org-Wide teams, that Microsoft add Semi-Private teams. The only difference would be that they would be searchable/discoverable (like Public teams) but instead of anyone being able to join the team (like Public teams), a user would request that they be allowed to join the team. The owner of the…

  12. meeting search

    Context Aware Search Across All Areas of Teams
    It would be really helpful if we could search specific places in teams independently. i.e. "search w/in conversation" "search meeting names" "search all meeting notes" With a company the size of the one I work for, getting results from all conversations, all channels, is overwhelming and unhelpful, and having to go to outlook and find a meeting and then carry that over to scroll backwards thru meetings is even more cumbersome than it sounds typing.

  14. Retrieve only deleted chat messages by Content Search in Microsoft Teams

    Contents search allows us to find all chats, however this function does not allow to search only deleted chats.
    I need to check the only deleted chats, so the current behavior annoys me to check which ones were deleted or not.
    I request you the search function is available to specifically find the deleted chats in Teams.

  15. private teams should have option to be hidden from search or not

    Users can not search for private rooms to ask for membership approval. They can search for public teams but those can not be member approved by owners.
    We would like to have an option when creating private team whether it is hidden from search or not so users could easily find us and ask for membership.

  16. Quick Search for Teams and Channels

    Ability to do a quick search for Teams you are already joined and also for channels. Pls make just a quick text box in the upper part of the teams and channels panel on the left side. Not a big deal for you, but a big deal for us!

  17. Search on recent

    It would be very useful to be able to search by person and see any recent conversations with them in the recent area.

    At the moment the recent tab doesn't filter nor is it possible to search, which means its very hard to find any recent chat involving the contact.

  20. Improve the message search option

    You should be able to search key words in an specific channel or conversation with someone.
    Currently the search bar on the top will search for everything in every channel/conversation, which some times its not useful. You should be able to filter out the search better
