  1. Search chat

    Ability to search a chat. Sometimes the need arises to go through a previous chat but getting to the chat just by scrolling is hectic. An option to search for a specific chat in the chat window would be helpful.

  2. search options

    Search functionality:
    1. Limit Search To:
    * All of Microsoft Teams
    * All Chats
    * Only chats including [select input]
    * All Teams
    * Only Team(s) [select]
    * All channels in a team
    * Only channel(s) [select]

    The search function is currently very poorly received across our area because it is just a massive search string.

    I would like the ability to restrict a search by Team and/or Channel and/or Individual
    In order to have a more targeted search result
    So that I can more quickly and efficiently find the correct result.

    Additionally - searching in User Feedback Forums is…

  3. Enhance the "Search" feature to search the comment fields AND "" search options

    It seems that the search feature does not include the comment fields. At least when I attempted to search for a name that I remembered placing in a team card comment, it wouldn't come up - so it must only search the "Task Name" field. Please consider expanding the search fields to include comments - and while at it, consider allowing specific searches using "" so it ONLY searches for a given search string

  4. Recover library files searcher on SharePoint site from Teams disappeared with the last actualization.

    Now to search by words in Teams we need to go to the SharePoint page. It’s not logical, since, if the two applications (SharePoint and Teams) are integrated it's not natural you have to use both. Moreover, the general search bar that appears at the top of the SharePoint page is not as useful as it doesn’t specifically search for words within the library documents, but does it in all Teams Pages.

    Regarding request case: 20206972

  6. Search Teams chat

    I use Teams very intensively these days and I am included in many teams. But, there is an option which is missing me a lot - searching chat by some word.
    So, can you please add search option to Teams Chat to be able to find topic which we discussed.

  8. Filtering search results within Files by Channel

    When you search in teams, you can filter search results within Messages by Team and Channel. However, when you can only filter search results within Files by Team. Would be great to be able to filter search results within Files by Team and Channel.

  9. Enable "Changed Global Policy" in audit log search

    Enable activity "Changed Global Policy" to see what changed in global policy and who made the changes.

    Because some customers' environment requires multiple Global Administrator, while some GA make changes in global policy without authorization.

    If the audit log search is not enabled with Changed Global Policy, it would increase the difficulty of management and restore global policy settings if the policy is not archived.

    ■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。

    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…

  13. We want to be able to use department names and furigana for searching users in Microsoft Teams search

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams 内の検索にて、部署名やフリガナを利用したユーザー検索をできるようにしたい
    We want to be able to use department names and furigana for searching users in Microsoft Teams search


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams を利用していますが、検索ボックスにユーザーの部署名やフリガナを入れても、該当のユーザーが検索結果に表示されません。
    Skype for Business ではユーザーの部署名やフリガナを入れた場合にユーザー検索が可能であったため、同様の機能を Microsoft Teams でも実装希望です。​
    We are using Microsoft Teams, but even if we enter the user's department name and furigana, that user does not get displayed in the search results.
    As user search can be done in Skype for Business even when the user's department name and furigana is used, we hope that the same feature can be implemented in Microsoft Teams.

  15. 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.

  16. 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).

  18. Display all assignments

    When a student attempts to view their assignments they should be able to view all of them. Due to the fact that they are separate the student could have a lot of classes meaning they may have to go through each one individually. So there should be a list of all assignments starting with the one that's due first

  19. 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.
