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

    Integrate Teams chat into Outlook email search so that Outlook email search results include relevant Teams chats (like how relevant Skype chats are included in a search done in Outlook email).

  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Get a better feedback system. This is total rubbish.

    This is a waste of space. I come to this site to help and it is a maelstrom of mess. I won’t be back.

  7. 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.

  9. Exclude retired users from the Teams search result

    Teams user search feature finds users who retired and removed from AAD, because it looks up them through cache. It’s inconvenient that we have to clear those caches from Teams client each time, so I would like you to improve the search feature to set aside users who are not existed in AAD.

    When searching the files shared in Teams within our organization, we are not able to find those files smoothly because the search accuracy is not good enough.
    To improve work efficiency, we hope the search feature in Teams will be more accurate.

  13. 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.

  14. Allow end users to add new external users mail address from Chat

    Currently, only registered external users in AAD are searchable in Teams. So, administrators need to register external users contact data into Azure AD in advance.
    This is a time-consuming process, so it would be great if end users themselves could register external users via Teams.

  15. 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.

    Search function across multiple TABs within a channel

    We have multiple wiki tabs, containing various product information, within a channel. Users would like to be able to search for words across all wikis to be able to find a product that could be in any of the wikis.

  18. People search don't use middle initial or punctuation

    When searching for people don't use middle initial as part of your matching criteria. Most people don't know what other people's middle initials are. Searching on "Jane Doe" should find "Jane X. Doe" or any other combination of Jane Doe with middle initials or none. Currently I get no matches at all.

    Additionally within our company some folks have a middle initial with a period and others don't. If I do know a middle initial it should match with or without the period. For example "Jane X. Doe" should match "Jane X Doe".

  19. 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…

    planned  ·  Warren responded

    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.

  20. 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.
