  1. Sorting Team members

    A small, but very useful improvement would be: To be able to sort the Members of a Team under "Manage team" menu, by Status, Name, Title, Location, Role, etc.

  2. Return a whole conversation when using Content Search in Security & Compliance

    When we were using Skype for Business and we did a content search an entire conversation would be returned. With Teams only one message in the conversation may be returned. Without the context the returned result is almost useless. We need an easy way to return the whole conversation when a match is found for a content search of message type IM.

  3. 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.

  4. Specific search

    Search inside specific chats with other people and the ability to jump to the message so that the surrounding messages can be read and not just that message.
    not all searches can be pinpointed like a phone number. I remember the context but not the specific message. I can find the message in the general search then have to go into that chat and scroll to that date. Searching within a specific chat with another individual would be much more useful than searching all my chats.

  5. Integration Delve Profiles in Teams

    Make Delve Profiles (own Profile and that of others) available in Teams and include profile content in Teams-Search.

    Delve Profiles are good fo showing skills and projects of our employees.

    But the Profiles and there information are not accessible in Teams which breaks our usecase.

  6. Diacritic insensitive text search

    Currently the message search is diacritic sensitive. Fox example, if you type a phrase like "naive" or "resume", the result set on the Messages tab will contain the exact matches only, therefore the alternative forms like "naïve" or "résumé" will be missing, and vice versa.

    This behaviour particularly affects non-English languages where accents are frequently used and it makes text search inaccurate.

    It would be nice if all versions matched regardless of whether diacritics were typed or not.

  8. Integrate Teams chat into Outlook email search so that Outlook email search results include relevant Teams chats (like Skype does)

  9. Help us SEARCH and FIND things in Teams

    We want improvements to search:

    CTRL+F SHORTCUT
    I wanto to find messages inside a chat or channel with CTRL+F.
    It’ll allow me to quick search messages in a specific conversation.

    PARITY TO SKYPE SEARCH
    Like in Skype chat, we need to be able to search text strings from conversations

    IMPROVE SEARCH RESULTS VIEW
    I feel as though the conversation view looks a bit cluttered as is, and conversation threads are not as readily identifiable as I had hoped they would be. Some suggestions are: Add the ability to include a Topic Header for a conversation so that you can easily…

    This feature request has moved to the planning stage. There have also been several small updates that have gone out already, as well.

    I’ll keep you posted as I hear more about coming updates.

  10. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. Files search results link back to Team or Channel

    When searching for a file the result will show which team / channel the file is from, but provides no direct way to go to that team / channel.

    Chat results when select show you the tabs for that team and the header provides a breadcrumb to take you to the team. This provides context for the result and a way into related team/channel content.

    File results should provide some way to establish the context for the file and to access other materials from the team/channel working with the file.

  18. a-z search

    The search feature in the A-Z Contacts section of Calls does not work. I have tried typing in partial names, complete names that are exact matches of existing contacts, and phone numbers of existing contacts... but when I hit enter after typing in that field, my list of contacts is not narrowed down.
