  1. Keep Up

    I just want to goose this topic a little bit. I see it is in the "working on it" stage.

    Seriously? no search? none? This product was released without being able to use CTRL+F? Are you all soft? It's one thing to release a Microsoft version of some other popular communication system like slack or discord, but that isn't any kind of an excuse to do such a bad job. Just use Slack or Discord, and think hmmm, how can I do the same thing on this program people will pay too much money for. It's not that hard, everybody…

  2. Ability to search the section you are in instead of the whole application. (Same goes for SharePoint)

    Right now when you search Teams or SharePoint, you search the entire thing. I do realize there is a filtering section, but it is very inefficient and time consuming. Thanks.

  3. Specify a team to see the contributor’s details for the message we received in a certain period

    It would be great if we could specify a team to see the message contributor’s details for the message we received in a certain period. This function would be helpful to see who and when the message was posted if there are many team members.

  4. Add meeting to the list of filters available for Activity feed

    It is difficult to sort through a channel conversation thread to find past meeting to be able to find notes/chat for a specific meeting

    Better yet, roll up those meeting notes into a notebook for the channel, adding pages for each meeting's notes

  5. Show all users who have the same surname you searched with

    It would be great if the search result could show all suggested users who have the same surname you searched with. When you search with the surname, up to 10 suggested users will be shown in the result, even if there were actually 20 users who match with the surname. We could get misunderstood the user doesn’t exist as he won’t be shown in the result.
    It is inconvenient to search users with full name or email address.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  10. 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

  13. 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.

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. About the search function in Microsoft Teams

    *English follows Japanese

    About the search function in Microsoft Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    現在社内全体でのコミュニケーション、業務内容の連絡に Microsoft Teams を利用しております。
    そのため業務関連の情報にアクセスしたい場合は、Microsoft Teams クライアント上部の検索より検索を行い確認しております。
    しかしながら、フィルターを利用してもうまくヒットしない場合や、日本語の場合ワードブレイカーが働き任意の内容のアクセスまでに時間がかかります。
    作業効率の向上のため、ハッシュタグなどのタグ付けができるよう機能の拡張を要望します。
    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…

  17. When searching files allow going directly to the team or folder rather than just viewing the file

    I am looking for a file or related files. I don't know the exact file or name, but I know a term that should hit on a file that is near the information I am looking for.
    I enter a search term at the top of the page and click on file results. At this point, I can see the file names and the teams. However, I can only click on the file and view it. I want to be able to both click on the team and navigate directly or on the folder and go there directly.
    One implementation…

  20. Make Who answer anything and make a real person control it.

    It is so annoying when it doesn't answer anything. And I want a real person doing it.
