  1. Show entire conversation on with search results

    Currently when you search for older messages and select a result Teams will only return the one result. If it's a conversation from 3 months ago where I only know a handful of words I really am looking for some context, and showing the surrounding messages (like slack or discord) would help a ton.

  2. View my full activity history

    GDPR gives Europeans a right to ask for all the saved personal information and it seems to be the only way to get to view my personal activity history. Seriously, why we can't properly view our own activity history, it only shows few lines and doesn't offer option to search farther away? Should have a date filter as well to search for specific dates and full text search. I want full access to my own self written data.

  4. 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.

  5. Information Barriers for Business Premium License

    In order to control visibility between departments, executives, and users, implementing Information Barriers are the best bet. This feature is necessary for business Premium Licenses, when will it be available for this type of license?

    We are looking for a way to limit visibility between departments, as well as separation of executives and users as Address Book Policy does not work for our environment.

  7. User search in Microsoft Teams

    I would like you to improve the searching feature to exclude users who have not been assigned Microsoft Teams license from the search result.

  8. User search by SMTP address when accessing externally. View external users as user names.

    Enable search for external users by SMTP address in Teams for the external access. Currently, you have to search external users by UPN for the external access.

    Also, I would like to view external users to be user names (or specifying optional names). Currently, you can see external users as UPN so that you cannot identify user name when starting chat with external users.

  9. view shared media

    when a given image or media is shared, it is hard to find. we have to scroll back until we find it. it would be helpful if there is an option to see all shared media per user shared with.

  10. Go to secific time in message history after search

    Go to a specific time in message history after having search a string in messages.
    Sometimes only the date of the message is displayed without the context of the message (previous messages)

  11. Improve search feature

    Slack has the right idea when it comes to a simple and powerful search field. It allows me to search in a given channel, for a comment made by a specific individual on a given day. It uses syntax like ‘from:bob’ ‘on:yesterday’. Right now if I use search, it searches all channels, postings by everybody and I don’t find it useful. With improvements like those I’ve suggested, I would actually use it. Right now I scroll a few times. If I don’t find what I’m looking for, I go ask the author to post the information again. I’d rather be…

  12. be able to search for documents which have been uploaded to a team channel.

    It would be very helpful to be able to search for documents that have been loaded onto a channel in teams, rather than having to scroll through them all. If a key word was known, it would save so much time! Thanks.

  13. Improve the behavior which shows duplicated user name in the reach result

    Teams search result shows two duplicated user names when searching with full email address of the user via the search or type a command box in Teams. Either of them redirects me to the correct chat page, but I would like you to fix this behavior to show only one suggestion.

  14. Search should include special characters

    Searching for a person called "René", I can't just type "Rene" - it has to be "René". This works in other Office products, but not Teams.

    So, please make search a little smarter on that point.

  15. 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.

  17. Search email from Teams

    I would like to search email(outlook) from Teams. Maybe as another search results tab like "files" or "People."
    As we transition away from email I regularly encounter situations where I have to refer to an old email or deal with the occasional colleague who still emails information. Being able to search on that info in one place, Teams, would be awesome.

  19. Implement other Boolean operators than AND for Teams search

    I would like you to implement more Boolean operators such as OR to use search in Teams. Currently, we can use AND operator only.

  20. Allow search for teams by partial names regardless of position

    When joining a new team you can search for a partial team name if it begins with the search term. It would be helpful in finding a Team if I could search for a partial name regardless of where the search term appears in the name.
