  1. see all teams

    Join or Create a Team should display all existing Teams in the organization. Currently the Join or Create option only allows Create. The Search field does not display teams not already in my Favourites list that I know exist. Rather it asks if I want to create a new team with the name of the existing team rather than offering me an opportunity to join the existing team.

  4. Return a whole conversation when using Content Search in Security & Compliance

    When we were using Skype for Business and we did a content search an entire conversation would be returned. With Teams only one message in the conversation may be returned. Without the context the returned result is almost useless. We need an easy way to return the whole conversation when a match is found for a content search of message type IM.

  5. Diacritic insensitive text search

    Currently the message search is diacritic sensitive. Fox example, if you type a phrase like "naive" or "resume", the result set on the Messages tab will contain the exact matches only, therefore the alternative forms like "naïve" or "résumé" will be missing, and vice versa.

    This behaviour particularly affects non-English languages where accents are frequently used and it makes text search inaccurate.

    It would be nice if all versions matched regardless of whether diacritics were typed or not.

  6. Support the use of hashtags to be criteria for a Channel, like Search Folders

    Support the use of hashtags to be criteria for a Channel, kind of like Search Folders. That way, you can be made aware of all conversations about #topicofinterest

  7. Apparently, the search function does not scan over integrated planner items.

    planner items should be integrated into the global search function

  8. Fix search functionality

    Search is quite buggy:

    - disabled users are still searchable (even though their account have no license assigned)
    - not all people with same name are displayed in the result list
    - search in desktop version shows different results than in web version

    Please fix this, it's really hard to work without working search functionality.

    Thank you,

  9. Ability to search a Team and a Channel

    Searching should be able to be narrowed and limited to the scope of what is currently selected. That would go for Chats, Teams level, Team level, channel level. It would also be nice to access the indexed content in OneNote and other Office files and text files.

  10. Highlight the searched words on the right panel

    When we run a search on Teams, the search results displayed under the "Messages" tab will have the searched words highlighted and this is great.

    However, if we then click on the search result we were looking for, the relevant section or words of the selected result isn't highlighted on the panel on the right side, it just loads the discussion at its end. We have to scroll up and look for what we need manually to find the section/words we were looking for.

    It would be a great improvement for the Search feature to highlight directly in the right…

  11. Searching in Saved Messages

    We use Microsoft Teams at my workplace and we really like the opportunity to save documents, posts or photos. When there is a task and a deadline in a post, I just save it and then I can check it easily at the 'Saved messages' tab. So I won't forget it. The only one problem is with the saving posts is if there are too many posts then hard to find and manage them, so it would be essential and important that users could SEARCH only between the saved messages.

  14. Search teams in mobile app

    Search in the iOS mobile app does not return teams names, so the only way to find a specific team seems to be scrolling through the whole teams list. Could you please add this feature?

  15. Search has regressed

    The Search functionality in the latest update to the Teams app seems to have regressed. If you search for something, and find a message with that phrase, when you click on it, it only shows you that exact message.

    No context.

    If you click the "Go to that chat" link, it puts you at the latest message in that chat stream, not where the found message is.

  19. Default to searching for people

    The search is kind of cumbersome. I would like it to automatically include contacts when I search, that's only what I use the search for. But currently it defaults to searching messages. It should default to searching contacts like the Skype for Business Search does.
