  1. Filtering/Searching using Teams

    We use your Teams as our daily log for information that we'd need to refer back to should there be any issues, but we may need to go back 6 months for example. I need a way of easily looking at specific dates or filtering to a certain period going back, but there doesn't seem to be this feature.

  2. I hope to increase the number of users searched.

    When searching for a user from the search field, only 5 people are displayed.
    Please implement a function to increase the number of users to search.

  3. Search by employee username via Teams chat

    Would be fantastic if Teams gave us the ability to store a unique user ID to be searchable in Teams chat along with the user's name (e.g. "Denver, John, DEN66834").Our company uses usernames, often as the only identifier on a marked-up document or an article. If I do not know the person's first and last name, I cannot look them up on Teams to ask for clarifications.

  4. MS Teams Search only finds recent items in channels. It is not working for anything older.

    The search functionality used to work far better, but it now only finds items from the past 90 days or so when looking for the keyword(s) within Teams channels. It's a significant limitation, and we are not sure why this has happened.

  5. Teams Seach Extending to Team Names, Channel Names, Tab Names, and Planner Tasks

    Right now when you search in Teams you get 3 search result options: Messages, People, and Files. I like these, but I wish there was a way for you to search and also have it come up with Team Names, Channel names, tab names, and planner tasks. We are trying to use Teams as an Engineering firm and it would be great to search for a project number and find literally everything within Teams associated with that project number come up.

  6. Visual cue for search results

    Search is excellent at hiding results. The problem is pre-sorting everything by tabs. This may seem intuitive to developers, but without some kind of visual cue that there's even a result in a tab, it's not obvious at all to users. The results are effectively hidden, or, you need to perform extra clicks to the tabs you want in order to see if there's anything there. I would suggest putting all the results into a single list, grouped by type, rather than hidden behind tabs (which may be empty, for all you know before you click them). Failing that, at…

  7. provide an online, written, operators manual.

    Provide a written operators manual that can be accessed online. for those of us who don't learn as well by watching a video this would be a tremendous help. It also provides a reference that we can return to as needed when having trouble navigating the stystem.

  8. Obtain more @mentions by running /mentions in Teams

    I would like to obtain more @mentions by running /mentions in Teams. Currently we can get @mentions sent within the last one month.It would be great if I can customize days/months which Teams looks up from, and I want to get more results from more than last one month.

  9. User search in Teams

    With the user search in Teams and its behavior followed by ABP, it would be great that we could exceptionally search a certain domain.

  10. Customize settings in user search in Teams

    It would be great to set exceptional view settings for user search functionality in Teams. Ideally, the view format would be similar as ABP.

  11. Consolidated search of links and attachments that can be filtered by chat/channel.

    File search exists, but would be improved by having chat/channel filters.

    More importantly is that we need to be able to search all documents, even those that weren't put in the files section, but we're just attachments in threads. Additionally all links and docs should be captured and referenceable from a straightforward UI container element that consolidates all of them.

  12. Search option on top of all chats and Teams channel for easy reference

    A search field similar in Outlook when we type names, subject, or body contents. Please let's have this as soon as possible. Thank you!

  14. Search capability in dialog box for adding cloud storage to Files tab.

    Search capability in dialog box for adding cloud storage to Files tab. Not sure that the list order is at this time. Alpha order would be better. A quick search box, better.

  15. Search Messages by User Profile Property

    My customer (in GCC) is a large agency with multiple locations. The BAs at each location would like to be able to search for all messages across al teams by users at their location in, say, the past day to ensure all needs are being met. Their location is a profile property. Please add the capability to perform a global advanced search for messages where a user property matches given text (wildcard). Alternatively, perform a global advanced search for messages where a user is in a given O365 Group or Security Group. They have security groups which have all location…

  16. Filter on Task description, Checklist Items and Comments

    Enhance the Filter feature in the Teams Planner tab in the following ways:
    1. Typing in a filter/search term should find words in a Task description (not just the Task title)
    2. Typing in a filter/search term should find words in Task Checklist Items and Comments as well
    3. Typing in a persons name should filter the people in the list so you don't have to scroll through people to find the person you want to filter by.

    *Note: Trello already does this.

  17. Search needs the same abilities as SharePoint and Search needs to be reworked

    No one likes the results provided by Search. People are looking to use # tags and other markers to be able to find their content. People love SharePoint's searchability, works fantastic for files and file content, that needs to be brought to Teams. Some people also get lost of what they are searching for as Teams seems to default to categories of search and not even realize it. There needs to be searching for Team Names, Channel names, channel chat content, IM's, files and clearly marked as such. Believe it or not, this single thing is keeping my company from…

  18. Expand the highlighted message from search results


    1. search for a string found in a long message

    2. find message in messages tab

    3. click message

    4. see message collapsed in conversations tab

    This happened to me, while looking for a URL, I couldn’t tell I was looking at the right message because the message it was in was collapsed.

  19. Manage the searching result for users

    It would be great if you could add options to narrow down the searching result for users in the search box/bar in Teams.

  20. 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.
