  1. filter

    Moving over to Teams from the Conversation History in Skype I have lost the ability to search my chat history my date. I see the capability of filtering based on date, but you can't enter a specific date. The filter option also seems to require you searching for something first.

    I would like to see the search be modified to include an option to search by date, or the filter option be available without searching for something first.

  2. Team channel people search

    Instead of 2 search buttons that don’t work well, one search button that shows any match for people, Teams, channels? I hate that searching for a channel, if it isn’t completely spelled properly, it doesn’t show. So then you search thru all teams, point and click to open more than 5 channels, which really, really gets old...hunting for the channel.

    And, I’d really like to know who is on a team or a channel when I’m about to send a message.

  3. Search within Teams needs improving

    The ability to search in Teams for a Public team is only successful if you type the first letters of the name of the Team. If I search for a Team using a word or letters that are in the latter part of the name if does not work e.g. we have lots of Public Teams starting with i3 - POD - <specific name>. I can search using i3, but if i just type POD into search it does not work.

  4. "Best match" category for search results

    Similar to how search works in Windows 10, I would like search results to show me all search results first in a "best result" tab then allow me to browse those results by using "messages", "people", and "files" tabs.

    Right now if I search on a term that is only present in a file the results window shows nothing because its defaulting to the messages tab. At the very least show the number of results on each tab.

  5. First name search should return last name, first name in last name alphabetical order

    In people search, First name search should return first - anyone I've texted with previously, then by last name, first name in last name alphabetical order. Right now it's returning in a seemingly random order.

  6. Unable to search using short name of a person

    If I have a Teams Colleague with the name Robert Vanderplank and I search for the name Rob Vanderplank the Teams Search results return no results. I have to enter his full name as Robert Vanderplank to find his contact.

    It would be very useful if Teams could search using partial names as well as the full name.

  7. search auto-populate best option

    When you search, it would be great if the search tool started to automatically populate what it thinks is the best option. This would allow you to just hit Enter if it is on the right search choice instead of being forced to use the mouse or arrows to select the right option.

  8. Search using a full email address for users not included in Address Book Policy (APB)

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    アドレス帳ポリシー(ABP)適用範囲外のユーザーの検索結果について
    Search using a full email address for users not included in Address Book Policy (APB)


    ■Description(内容):
    以前は、アドレス帳ポリシー(ABP)適用範囲外のユーザーは、フルアドレス入力することで、検索およびチャット・チーム追加などが可能であったが、現在は動作が変更され、フルアドレス入力での検索ができなくなっている。
    自テナントでは、フルアドレス入力での検索が必要なため、動作が変更となったことに非常に不便を感じています。
    今後、アドレス帳ポリシー(ABP) の設定または、Teams 管理センターなどでフルアドレス入力での検索のオン・オフを切り替えられる機能の実装を希望します。
    In the past, users that were not included in the Address Book Policy (APB) could input a full email address for searching and adding chats/teams, but that has now been changed; users cannot enter a full email address to do searching anymore.
    In our tenant, we need to enter a full email address for searching, so we feel very inconvenienced by this change.
    Thus we hope that a feature to enable/disable full email address…

  9. Display the department name when adding a member

    There is not enough information when adding a member to the team.
    The title is displayed, but the department name is not displayed.
    When searching, it is inconvenient.
    I hope that the department name is also displayed.

  11. Searching for the same terms on different devices returns different results

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Teams の検索窓に同じワードを入力しても、デバイスによって検索結果が異なるため、統一してほしい。
    Searching for the same terms on different devices returns different results


    ■Description(内容):
    同じワードで検索したところ、Teams クライアント アプリと Teams Web アプリでは、検索結果に "本来ヒットするべき文言" が表示されなかったが、ワードを分割して検索すると "本来ヒットするべき文言" が表示された。
    しかし、iPhone だと、完全なワードで検索しても、ワードを分割して検索しても、"本来ヒットするべき文言" が表示された。
    When searching for a given string in Japanese, the Teams client and the Teams Web app won’t return any hits if the string is not split up with a space or hyphen, however they will return results when it is split into parts. However on iPhone, the correct results are returned whether or not the string is split up or not. Please make this behavior consistent.

  12. Search for anything over all teams (also public team I'm not member)

    I'd like to find anything I'm looking for even I'm not a member of a public team. Maybe there should be a possibility do decide if I like to search only within teams I'm member or teams I'm member and all public teams.

  14. Create a search function for past chats and past files

    I think it would be a good idea to add a search function for the past chats and past files. This would enhance efficiency significantly.

  15. Please add a search feature within chats.

    Please add a search feature within chats, to allow for finding particular conversations etc more convenient. It can be quite difficult scrolling through weeks of conversation, simply to find a quote from someone.

  16. when will wiki articles be searchable?

    I have a lot of content stored in wiki articles in teams and it is extremely difficult for other users to find the content they want. It's very hard to believe this has not been built into the top search function in teams.

  17. search conversations

    The Search in Teams is not finding parts of keywords in the start of a conversation, only in the comments. If you search for the complete word, it will be found in the start of a conversation.

    You can find an example in my screenshot (sorry for German inside that screen).

    I expected that this is an error/incident. But Premier support told me, that this is "by design". So now we have to vote for a default function of every search...

  18. Search by position in company

    Because of the high flow of workers in some departments, it would be really useful if the search would have capabilitiy to find people by their job title since there are people who need to communicate but often only have a knowledge of the title, not the name.

  19. I want to be able to chat only users who want to allow chat

    Since the search of other users is enabled in the default state of the Teams, I want to be able to chat only users who want to allow chat.

  20. meeting search

    Context Aware Search Across All Areas of Teams
    It would be really helpful if we could search specific places in teams independently. i.e. "search w/in conversation" "search meeting names" "search all meeting notes" With a company the size of the one I work for, getting results from all conversations, all channels, is overwhelming and unhelpful, and having to go to outlook and find a meeting and then carry that over to scroll backwards thru meetings is even more cumbersome than it sounds typing.
