  4. Connector search support

    Content posted by Connectors (e.g. RSS Feeds, VSTS, Jira, Yammer, etc.) should be included in search results. Having this show up in "messages" is fine/expected but right now searches for things that we know are in conversations do not show up.

    Many of us use Teams to aggregate information from multiple places and without search working for connectors, it makes the goal of making Teams the only place one needs to go more difficult.

  5. search then sort by date modified

    Doing a search in explorer, waiting for it to complete, then clicking on the "Date Modified" column to sort by most recent causes Windows to start the search all over again. This is frustrating when searching a large directory, because I already wait for the search to complete, then after the results have come up, I should be able to simply sort the results that are already found by their modified date. But instead, I believe due to a bug, Windows Search thinks it has to start the search all over again.

  6. Mobile App Search - Indistinguishable Results

    Chat messages and messages in Team threads are very difficult to distinguish between in the mobile search. This leads to poor UX. If a user (me) is not careful when deliberating between results in the early morning hours then they (me) might send a message into a public thread whilst having intended to send a message to a private chat.

    Please think about adjusting the prominence of the chat type or including a more distinguishable characteristic between Team messages and Chat messages within search results.

  7. Use search to quickly jump to a tab

    Similar to how you can user the search bar to quickly jump to a specific Team or Channel, it would be great to show Tab names as well. Of course it would need to show you which team and channel that tab belongs to. If you select that item it quickly takes you directly to that tab.

  8. Make the bookmark display only the bookmarked part of the conversation

    Bookmarks would be a whole lot more powerful when it would only display the bookmarked conversation - should not be too difficult, right?

    (the current setting only 'jumps' back in the timeline with all the other conversations on display, too - which isn't helpful when trying to focus only on my bookmarked conversation, really)

  9. Search engine should search on team name, like desktop version

    Somehow when you search for a team name in the iPad version, there is no results, or the wrong. I expect to get the team names.

  10. search posts i started

    Need a filter to show me all the posts I started. At times people will answer my question, forget to @ me and I miss the response. Perhaps even a filter to show posts I started without a response or reaction.

  11. Add a feature that can view audio messages with content search

    If you post an audio message of mobile app and retrieve a log by content search, content is left blank, and it is hard to recognize it as audio message.
    So, we need a feature that can view audio messages as they are. Also, we need a feature that can see content of audio files from the log view.

  12. Show the same search results for Teams desktop and for mobile app

    When entering one multibyte character in the search bar via desktop client, the search result will be shown.
    However, with mobile devices, we need to type two or more multibyte characters to show search results.
    Therefore, I think the both apps should provide us exactly same results.

  13. Run a search by a link/ url

    I would like the possibility to run a search in Teams by a link.
    Example run a search in a Team or Channel
    https://teams.microsoft.com/l/channel/19%3a68accb59058b4f6aa64d261f0d7bbcc8%40thread.skype/Uservoices?groupId=56bc81d8-db27-487c-8e4f-8d5ea9058663&tenantId=8d4b558f-7b2e-40ba-ad1f-e04d79e6265a maybe a s type link for search
    Add a query parameter for search by keyword
    Also a type parameter to filter by type e.g. conversation or file or one ...
    This would be great to quickly fire a Teams search from outside also to provide quick shortcuts to common search.
    Currently the filter option can be quite cumbersome and you can not save a preferred search.

  14. Search results differ depending on which app you are using

    Unsearchable keywords in Microsoft Teams desktop or web clients can be successfully searched if you use Teams iOS app. I would like you to standardize the search function to provide the same experience between desktop/web app and iOS app.

  15. Get user's details directly from results in search bar without starting chat draft

    Hello,
    it would be great to implement a feature to show the user's details (like in SfB) directly from the search bar without opening a new chat draft with the user and switching to chat and back.

    Thank you for considering.
    JH

  17. 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
