  2. 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.

  3. File search of SharePoint Online document libraries added as "Cloud Storage"

    I have added separate SP libraries to MS Teams as " Add Cloud Storage". When I try to search for files that are located in one of these document libraries which are not associated to MS Teams, no items appear. The only way to search these libraries tis to go into SP online to use the search from there.

  5. Search hits leads to a file, I would like to see the folder it is in

    When I do a search I ofted find a file (i.e. a pdf), and when clicking the file is opened. But I would like to have the ability to go to the folder where the file is, either after viewing it, and deciding it was not the right one, or directly in the search results.

    Right now I have zero ability to go to WHERE the file was found, because only the team and channel is shown under the file name.

  6. Make Teams more like garbage can, less like landfill

    The more I use Teams, the messier it gets. It's like a landfill that just keeps growing. Email is like a garbage can, at least I'm able to clean out old junk that's no longer relevant.
    Today I tried to find a conversation I had with someone from May, without knowing a specific word to "search" for. I had to repeatedly press the "Home" button to go to the short-term top of the chat with that person, and repeat for a few minutes. Or if I knew a word to search, it would have taken me only to an individual…

    You can save a message in a chat, but there's no way to easily find them after.

  9. Include Outlook Contacts in Calls Contact list

    Include Office 365 Outlook Contacts (local) in the Contacts of calls in a way that the data displayed can be changed to fit the needs of the user.

    Outlook contacts are displayed (Thank you) but it is a 1985 display with no customization. Let us control the fields displayed and the size of each field to make this something other than an irritation.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Search button scoped to the current active screen

    Everywhere you go in Teams, you should have a search button that automatically filters to the scope of the active screen. Then, whent he search is executed, an option to widen the search to beyond the initial scope.

    So in summary:
    1. Search command bar continues as it does today
    2. New Search button at the bottom of the conversation tab which pre-filters the search results to just that channel
    3. New Search button at the top of Files in the Files tab to search just that location
    4. New Search button at the bottom of the chat window to…

  15. double-quoted string search function

    I'd like to search with following keywords
    yammer teams
    By doing it, the search result will show the posts including both yammer and teams

    But to search with Yammer[sp]Teams, many search engine provides such function by letting user by double quoting the search keywords.
    I'd like you to provide such function.

  16. Search inside the text of Word docs, PDFs, PowerPoints, Excel files, etc.

    The search feature should pull results from inside attachments, like Outlook currently does. This is invaluable when files are frequently labeled poorly. Also, allowing you to choose to only search attachments would add a lot of value.

    For example, a search for a company name that might be in the signature line of a legal document, but not in the file name would still allow you to find the document you were looking for.

  17. Add search on every chat session not just a common one

    Add search on every chat session not just a common one. Its really hard to search globally. Adding a search option under each chat session would help a lot.
