  2. A feature to search only the meetings which people outside the organization have participated in

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    組織外のユーザーが参加した会議のみ検索する機能
    A feature to search only the meetings which people outside the organization have participated in


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams の会議で、ゲストユーザーが参加した会議だけ抽出したいと考えた場合、Office 365 監査ログやコンテンツの検索機能を用いても実現できません。

    組織外のユーザーが参加した会議のみ検索する機能の拡充を要望します。

    Even if users want to retrieve only the Microsoft Teams meetings where guest users have participated in, this is not possible even with Office 365 audit logs and content search feature.

    We hope the search feature will be changed to be able to search only the meetings which people outside the organization have participated in.

  4. Allow the search bar to function like OneNote.

    So many posts, so hard to find. YES you can save them, but not as functional. People are very used to the onenote search function where it brings up every time a "Healthcare" has been mentioned. Missing this

  7. 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.

    Can you search in Chat? Why not, it would be so nice to have that option so you do no have to scroll through a million conversations

  10. I want to use contents search to retrieve information about members being added and joining in the chat

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    グループチャットへメンバーが参加、あるいは追加したという情報を、会話履歴として、コンテンツ検索から取得できるよう機能実装を要望します
    I want to use contents search to retrieve information about members being added and joining in the chat


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の機能ではグループチャットの会話履歴として IM の内容しか取得できないため、グループチャットへメンバーが参加したり、追加された情報について取得ができない動作を確認しております。
    IM の会話履歴以外にも、グループチャットへのメンバーの参加や追加の情報も取得できるよう機能拡充を要望します。
    Currently only the group chat history content for IM can be retrieved, and information like members joining in the group chat, members being added to the group chat cannot be retrieved.
    I hope that this feature can be changed to retrieve information about members being added and joining in the chat, and not just IM chat history information.

  12. makes it easy to see the search results of messages on the client.

    I want a function that makes it easy to see the search results of messages on the client.


    1. Accurately highlight keywords that are adjacent to full-width characters


    2. The search result window can be expanded and contracted for easy viewing.


    3. Enable to export search results to another file (CSV, EXL, TXT etc)

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
