  2. 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. 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…

  5. Improve Mandarin(Traditional Chinese) keywords search within Channel

    Mandarin(Traditional Chinese) keywords search within Channel is not functioning well. We could see some words are there, but when we try to search for that keyword, it shows [no matches found].

  7. Enhance the Microsoft Teams search filter

    Currently we are only able to search by entering keywords and strings. But I think it would be more efficient if there are search filter to categorize messages by using AI to detect words or content in the message. For example categorize the message as announcement, awareness etc… and let users use the filter menu to search messages by each category.

  8. Show context around search results such as adjacent messages in and around the same time

    When searching, it would be nice if more messages in and around that conversation are visible, not just a single message.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Only part of the search results displayed, not the entire thread

    Search results only show a portion of the team.

    The search results do not show the whole thread, but only a part of it.

    If only part of the thread is displayed, it's inconvenient because you have to go back to it if you want to post a new one.

    Currently in Teams chats etc., searching for people also returns guest users.
    There are cases where we would rather prevent certain guest users from being searchable by employees, so please make it possible to prevent specified guest accounts from appearing in search results.

  15. Teams Search Results default to General Channel Only When Chosen from the Search Results

    Searching from within Teams and looking for a specific Team is simple, but when you locate the Team and select it from the search results, you cannot navigate to another channel in that Team. It does not list the other channels as well. Users can't simply search for a Team, select from the search results, which takes the user only to the General channel view. And no other option to navigate to the other channels that are part of that Team.

  16. Search within each chat / conversation

    Search should be enabled within each chat/conversation instead of a single generalized search.

    Please provide a way to save chat history. The search function only appears with the chat box with the searched word in it and not the whole conversation.

  18. 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.

  20. Security group list is not same between Teams and SPO

    The group search results are different in Team and SPO. Specifically, in SPO when searching the SG to set access permission for the group, and in Teams when adding a user in the security group. I’d like to delegate access setting to other user in the future, and to teach the process to that user, so I want those search results to be shown in the same way.
