  2. 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.

  4. Make it easier to find named conversations

    If I search for the name of a previous conversation it will not be listed, just the messages inside the conversation. It would be nice if the names of conversations where also listed if they match the search terms. If that's not possible another tab could be added next to Messages/People/Files called conversations.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Please implement a feature that can display and output a list of past thread titles using Team, channel, thread subject, and sender paramete

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Teamsの検索条件として引数でTeam、チャネル、スレッド件名、発信者がで過去のスレッドタイトルの一覧を表示・出力できる機能を実装していほしい。
    Please implement a feature that can display and output a list of past thread titles using Team, channel, thread subject, and sender parameters as Teams search conditions


    ■Description(内容):
    過去の会話を検索するとチャットや、他のチャネルでの記録も検索されて、ピンポイントで該当の会話にたどり着けないため、Teamsの検索条件として引数でTeam、チャネル、スレッド件名、発信者がで過去のスレッドタイトルの一覧を表示・出力できる機能を実装していほしい。
    When a search is done on past conversations, records of chat and other channels are searched as well, which makes it hard to find the exact conversation. Thus we hope that a feature that can display and output a list of past thread titles using Team, channel, thread subject, and sender parameters as Teams search conditions will be implemented.

  9. There is no way to differenciate between posted messages, edited messages, deleted messages, deleted files etc when doing a contents search

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    コンテンツ検索でチャット履歴を検索する際、削除したメッセージ・編集したメッセージ・混ざって表示されてしまい分かりにくい
    There is no way to differenciate between posted messages, edited messages, deleted messages, deleted files etc when doing a contents search


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、コンテンツ検索でチャットメッセージを検索した場合は、投稿されたメッセージ、編集されたメッセージ、削除されたメッセージ、削除されたファイル等の、情報が見分けがつかない状態で混在している。

    メッセージの削除、編集や、ファイルの削除等のイベントが、明確に区別できる形でコンテンツ検索の結果を表示、エクスポートできるように希望する。​
    If contents search is used to look for chat messages, everything is shown and there is no way to differenciate between posted messages, edited messages, deleted messages, deleted files etc.

    Thus I hope a way to to differenciate and export the search results displayed will be implemented.

  10. Retrieve deleted or edited chat messages by Content Search in Microsoft Teams.

    Content Search can't search a deleted chat and edited chat.
    It is very inconvenient.
    In a way that is easy to understand, I want to search separately for each event.

  11. User search suggestions extension

    Search for users to see suggestions.
    If you only know your last name, you want to find that user from the candidate.
    However, this feature only displays 20 people.
    If there are many candidates, they will be missed and cannot be contacted.
    I'd like to see an extension to show more than 20 users.

  13. Enable eDiscovery to search chats and files which have been edited or deleted

    We currently cannot audit chats and files which have been deleted or edited in Microsoft Teams unless we enable the retention policy. It would be great if we could use eDiscovery function to search them without using the retention policy.

  14. Text search option on individual chat or on a group chat

    Search options are very limited and not very helpful. Please allow to search a text in respective chatbox or respective group. Similar to how whatsapp is integrated.
    We are using Teams as a centralized chat option in our organization and its really difficult to search and traceback some of the information.

  15. 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.

  17. Search text within in-line chat image

    When images with text in them are posted to a channel or thread within a channel it would be nice if they could be indexed and thus searchable.

    Images are currently searchable if they are added as files within a MS teams channel, just not if they are pasted in as in-line images.

  18. Search email from Teams

    I would like to search email(outlook) from Teams. Maybe as another search results tab like "files" or "People."
    As we transition away from email I regularly encounter situations where I have to refer to an old email or deal with the occasional colleague who still emails information. Being able to search on that info in one place, Teams, would be awesome.

  19. 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…
