  1. Search Messages by User Profile Property

    My customer (in GCC) is a large agency with multiple locations. The BAs at each location would like to be able to search for all messages across al teams by users at their location in, say, the past day to ensure all needs are being met. Their location is a profile property. Please add the capability to perform a global advanced search for messages where a user property matches given text (wildcard). Alternatively, perform a global advanced search for messages where a user is in a given O365 Group or Security Group. They have security groups which have all location…

  2. Filter on Task description, Checklist Items and Comments

    Enhance the Filter feature in the Teams Planner tab in the following ways:
    1. Typing in a filter/search term should find words in a Task description (not just the Task title)
    2. Typing in a filter/search term should find words in Task Checklist Items and Comments as well
    3. Typing in a persons name should filter the people in the list so you don't have to scroll through people to find the person you want to filter by.

    *Note: Trello already does this.

  3. 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.

  4. Make search return messages in context of the conversation again!

    This used to be a feature, but now you've removed it?

    If I want to find a conversation I had with someone 6 months ago, my only option is to scroll up, wait for messages to load, scroll up some more, wait some more and so on until I finally reach that part of the conversation timeline.

    Search used to return messages that, when clicked on, took me to the place on the timeline where we had the discussion I'm looking for. Now clicking on the message only shows the message in isolation with no way of seeing it in…

  5. Search in iOS/iPadOS should work as web and/or desktop version

    The search experience now is not up to par.

    It behaves quite different compared to the desktop version. Also missing the possibility to navigate fast between teams and/or channels and performing commands in the mobile version.

    Pls make it a coherent experience between the platforms. At the moment I can’t use Teams as efficient on my iPad app. Often find myself forced to use the web version instead. Although that one works quite well since iPadOS have full desktop web experience now.

  6. Search needs the same abilities as SharePoint and Search needs to be reworked

    No one likes the results provided by Search. People are looking to use # tags and other markers to be able to find their content. People love SharePoint's searchability, works fantastic for files and file content, that needs to be brought to Teams. Some people also get lost of what they are searching for as Teams seems to default to categories of search and not even realize it. There needs to be searching for Team Names, Channel names, channel chat content, IM's, files and clearly marked as such. Believe it or not, this single thing is keeping my company from…

  8. Searching team members with their designation

    In a huge Organization usually, there is a lot of hiring and many people leave often. there is a rotation of people changing their designations every now and then. Hence, if a person/ team member can be searched by her/his designation, it will be a lot easier to find team members.

  9. Expand the highlighted message from search results

    1. search for a string found in a long message
    2. find message in messages tab
    3. click message
    4. see message collapsed in conversations tab

    This happened to me, while looking for a URL, I couldn’t tell I was looking at the right message because the message it was in was collapsed.

  10. Filter recent contact under the Chats>Recent Tab

    Chats>Recent Tab, it would be very efficient to have a filter to search/filter as you type the recent contacts you had a conversation with!

  12. Manage the searching result for users

    It would be great if you could add options to narrow down the searching result for users in the search box/bar in Teams.

  13. 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.

  14. Search for People BUG

    Actually this is a bug. I can not search for people because Teams can not find people based on fractions of their names, ex:
    "Rodrigez Yazvedo, Juan Maria" can not be found by typing "Juan Yazvedo" nor "Juan Rodrigez".

    Teams is unable to find a person, unless I know the person's made-up Teams name (family name comma first name), and start typing a string that is contained as an exact sub-string within the made-up name.

  15. Search Office 365 files with only Microsoft Teams

    It would be nice to have a feature that can search O365 files such as Outlook/SharePoint Online/Microsoft Teams files and launch each app by one click with only Microsoft Teams.

  16. Search function across multiple wiki TABs within a channel

    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.

  17. 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".
