  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Search bar location

            The search/command bar in the middle of the very top of the window is not a very good location. Decades of UI/UX work to train users to click there to DRAG the window and now it's a giant search box. Perhaps the ability to move it to a different place or make it expandable if you want to would be nice. Or option to hide it. But right in the middle of the top of the window is a terrible place.

            • view public team in tenant

              When user clicks "Join or create a team", public teams are listed.
              Currently, these teams are not of all public teams. Only teams that are related to me or other members are shown.

              Please add options "All public teams" are shown.

                Can the < > navigation arrows have a history (right click) to jump to a specific item, instead of doing a lot of clicks to go back and forward (alike the browsers)

                • Wiki search results display

                  When searching for a string using the top search/command bar the Wiki pages are included in the search with is good.
                  Unfortunately the results can’t be displayed within Teams. you have to download an mht file and open it locally with a web browser.
                  It sounds strange that documents created and edited within teams can’t be displayed when part of search results...
                  It makes it almost useless

                    Support the use of hashtags to be criteria for a Channel, kind of like Search Folders. That way, you can be made aware of all conversations about #topicofinterest

                      Guest users are unable to search files in Teams. They get the "Messages" and "People" however "Files" is not present. They are able to search SharePoint no issues, just not teams.

                        Wildcard search!
                        When searching in chat messages i will not get a hit on 'test' when a message contains 'testing'. Exact matches should be first, and wildcard matches later.

                          • Add location AD to search capability

                            Currently in Skype you can search for individuals by location from AD, then you can select a user based a search results. Very helpful to find individuals at a specific location and/or department -- would like to see this feature enabled in Teams. Currently you have to know exactly who you are trying to IM in advance.

                              Often we need to access a folder that a file is located within. Search only allows opening the file, not opening the folder location. At a minimum, it should display the folder location so that we can browse there manually.

                                      It's not possible to search for the content of a code snippet.

                                      Would be great to be able to search for parts of the content, e.g. if you want to search for examples where a certain class or library is in use.

                                      • Allow searching files with partial file name

                                        Allow file search using partial file name. I see the file when i click on Files icon but when i search for the same using partial name using the 'Search or type a command' box, it does not give any result. I have to give exact and full name of the file for the search to work.

                                        • Improved search that searches through everything

                                          If I´m trying to use Teams as my main hub of communications it would be handy if teams search can search for anything and everything.

                                          It would search my emails, files, chats, team discussions, groups, sharepoint etc. Basically the extent of my O365 reach.

                                          To many times a file can´t be found as you can´t remember where you put it, to many times you can´t remember if the discussion was via teams, email or chat etc.
