  2. onenote online search entire notebook

    I just finished moving onenote notebook sections to our new MS Teams notebook. problem is that search functionality is a joke. it only allows searching for keywords on a particular section or page. why can't it search the entire notebook? please make this happen. Its hard enough convincing an aging demographic of workers to accept newer technology, but it becomes a laughable task when something as Common as search is not even done correct

  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. 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.

  7. 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…

  12. Enable Searching by Cost Center (who is in cost center xxx)?

    In Skype, you could enter a cost center number and it would show you all the people that currently had that cost center assigned to them in their contact information. Unfortunately, Teams does not operate the same even though it is presented in the same manner when you hover over the person and get their contact information.

    In addition, it would be great if the AI in the Who app would be able to recognize more of the cost center or department based questions, such as who is in cost center XXX? who is the manager of cost center xxx?

    Add a feature to hide the email address that is displayed during Microsoft Teams use search when job title is entered


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams キーワード検索時にユーザー名を検索した際に、検索候補のユーザー情報内に役職名の左側に () で囲われたメールアドレスの表示が行われる。

    ログイン ID として利用しているアドレスの表示がされてしまうことがあり、個人情報保護の観点からこの部分を非表示にする機能を希望。

    () 内の表示は、AAD 上で該当ユーザーの "ジョブ情報" を編集し、"役職" に入力して保存された際にアドレスが表示されることを確認

    役職に名称を入力している状態で () 内を非表示に切り替える機能を希望

    When username is used for keyword searching in Microsoft Teams, the email address enclosed in () on the left side of the job title is displayed in the user information of the search results.

    There are situations when the address used as login IDs are displayed as well, so we hope this can be…

  14. Teams won't show status in drop-down list when calling over searchbar command

    Using commands in the searchbar is super helpfull but I really miss the small status icons in the drop-down list.

    The drop-down list appears to be the only place where the availability of users is not displayed beneath their profile pictures.

    Adding that would prevent unnecessary call attempts.

    Thx

  15. Regarding user search for Microsoft Teams

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams でのユーザー検索について
    Regarding user search for Microsoft Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Microsoft Teams の機能の調整で、姓名での検索ができなくなっている。
    日本語でユーザー名を登録している場合、苗字の 2 文字で検索することも多いため、姓名での検索ができるように調整の緩和をしてほしい。​
    Currently searching by full name has become impossible due to adjustments to Microsoft Teams features.
    If the username was registered in Japanese, it is common to search using 2 characters of a surname, so we hope that the adjustments can be changed to make it possible to search by full name.

  17. I would like to see search results in a semi-structure format

    Categorize and organize the search results by rank, chats, channels, teams, sharepoint destinations.

    This implies that the search goes across all those vectors.

  18. Block searching external users

    We would like to block searching external users. Currently, internal users can search external users. External users can search other external users who are in different team as well.
    We would like to prevent internal users from searching external users. Also, we would like to block external users from searching users externally.

  19. UPN displayed when searching for a user

    When searching for a user in the Teams app, the UPN is displayed below.
    Options should be implemented that allow you to hide or select the information to be displayed.

  20. 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.
