  1. 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.

  2. Implement other Boolean operators than AND for Teams search

    I would like you to implement more Boolean operators such as OR to use search in Teams. Currently, we can use AND operator only.

    I would like you to add a feature that sets each guest user to be shown or hidden in the search result when searching guest users registered in Office 365.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Search tab for each group chat

    Introducing a separate search tab for each group chat. The search will be limited to the respective group, without showing results from other conversations.

  11. On the [Share with Outlook] screen, remove the display restriction during search.

    On the [Share with Outlook] screen, remove the display restriction during search.

    In the past, when I was searching for email address recipients, my address was also shown, so it used to be easy to find, but now I have to enter a string for every address.

    It is very inconvenient, but I would like you to realize comfortable operation as before.

  12. Add an in-chat search function, the general search function is too messy.

    Please add an in-chat search function, the general search function is too messy. I'd like to search a conversation for a specific keyword, without having to use the general search which takes longer and brings up the same keyword in unrelated conversations.

  13. Function to customize the user search in Teams

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams ユーザー検索をカスタマイズする機能
    Function to customize the user search in Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Microsoft Teams ではユーザー検索の際に、"Exchange アドレス帳ポリシーを利用したユーザー検索制限" しか検索を制限する機能がなく誰でも検索できてしまう。ユーザーにより、検索可能な範囲を詳細に設定できる機能(特定ユーザーのみ検索可能等の検索範囲を制限するなどの調整)の実装を希望します。

    Currently when searching for users in Teams, instead of the search function “Using Exchange address book policies to limit user search”, you can search for anyone. We would like a function where the scope of searching that is possible can be set in detail for different users (restrictions such as only specific users being able to search).

  15. Provide "Open File Location" option in search

    When i search for files, i am unable to tell the location of the file from the search results. All it shows under file name in search results is "<<Team Name>>/Shared Documents". So we are unable to tell which channel it is and which sub-folder in the channel it is in.

    Can we have a "Open file location" option in context menu or have the file location shown in search results under the file?

  16. Faceted Search

    Please provide Faceted Search so that we can filter by various aspects similar to outlook search such as:
    *categories, important/tags, people, time sent/received, group, drafts/unsent messages, seen/not seen, conversations with attachments/links/screenshots, saved messages, type of message (announcement, reply, message, etc) and other types of data & metadata.

    This combined with smart text searches that can have exact quotes, exclude terms, etc

    "Other terms such as hierarchical faceted metadata, faceted search and browsing, and dynamic taxonomies refer to similar concepts."

  17. Enable the content search to find images only

    It would be great if the content search can find images only from the conversation in Teams, as the current content search cannot.

  18. Save message with a tag

    Allow specifying a tag when saving a message, which can then be used later for easy retrieving of the message. Consequently, allow searching a saved message by a given tag.

  19. include more Active directory information

    include active directory information in the search.
    like location, so if I type a city it will show all the members in that city.
    also include the other fields of information from active directory in the contact space, like cell phone numbers

  20. 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.
