  1. Channel search results should open the whole thread

    When searching for something from a channel conversation, the results returned are atomic, so I cannot find the whole context of the thread.

    Repro steps:
    1) Have a conversation in a channel about a complex topic (in this case, using a VPN)
    2) Allow several other conversations to happen in channel, where scrolling is no longer a convenient way to find it
    3) Search for your old conversation by keyword
    4) Select the proper result in the search results pane

    Expected: You are now at that post in the conversation
    Currently: A lot of results are in the "main" pane,…

  2. Save chat history

    Please provide a way to save chat history. The search function only appears with the chat box with the searched word in it and not the whole conversation.

  4. filter/sort non-channel unread chat messages

    "/unread" should also reveal unread non-channel chat conversations.

    "Feed" should also include non-channel chat activity.

    Also, implement (or create option to) sort unread non-channel chat messages to above pinned messages that are not also unread.

  5. #Teams

    Trending "hashtags" might help Teams ability to search for common terms that we use. If we can use the # we might be able to click on the term and see all of the other times our group or other groups did the same thing!

  7. Recover library files searcher on SharePoint site from Teams disappeared with the last actualization.

    Now to search by words in Teams we need to go to the SharePoint page. It’s not logical, since, if the two applications (SharePoint and Teams) are integrated it's not natural you have to use both. Moreover, the general search bar that appears at the top of the SharePoint page is not as useful as it doesn’t specifically search for words within the library documents, but does it in all Teams Pages.

  9. Search for meeting by name

    When you use the top search bar in teams, it doesn't appear to return the names of meetings or of the recordings associated with them. That makes it really difficult to find a previous meeting on a specific topic.

  10. Enable to output content search log for each channel

    When outputting a log from content search, the channel can not be specified and it becomes a team unit.
    Since it is a huge amount of information to output only the log of a specific channel, I want you to be able to specify for each channel you want to output.

  11. 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.

  12. improved search functions.

    searching channel specific wiki and file contents for key words does not appear to be implemented. An advanced search dialogue would be appreciated.

  14. Run a search by a link/ url

    I would like the possibility to run a search in Teams by a link.
    Example run a search in a Team or Channel
    https://teams.microsoft.com/l/channel/19%3a68accb59058b4f6aa64d261f0d7bbcc8%40thread.skype/Uservoices?groupId=56bc81d8-db27-487c-8e4f-8d5ea9058663&tenantId=8d4b558f-7b2e-40ba-ad1f-e04d79e6265a maybe a s type link for search
    Add a query parameter for search by keyword
    Also a type parameter to filter by type e.g. conversation or file or one ...
    This would be great to quickly fire a Teams search from outside also to provide quick shortcuts to common search.
    Currently the filter option can be quite cumbersome and you can not save a preferred search.

  15. I want to output content-search data to CSV.

    Currently, content-search has only a way to output to a PST file.
    This is very inconvenient to use data.
    We request the implementation of the function to output content-search as CSV data.

  16. see all available teams to join

    New employees want to find an join teams of interest in the organisation. as they are new the suggestions are empty so unless they are told what to join they are in the dark as to what is available. We also get duplicate teams set up simply because employees are unaware of the existence of teams.
    Please can we have a way on the join a team page to list all teams so people can request access to private or join public teams that look interesting.
    This lack of visibility is creating silos of data and pushing people to alternate…

  17. 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.

  18. Filter search results by private chat

    When filtering search results it's possible to filter by Team, Channel, and From. It would be great to have the option to filter my search results to all private chats.
