  1. Improve chat history search

    It looks like those designing the Chat are not really using it. Searching the chat history is still an awful experience:
    1. When you are in a conversation with a person and want to search for something, you want BY DEFAULT the results from the conversation with THAT person. But no, the smart designer of Chat was thinking to flood you first with a lot of results and then to ask you for few additional clicks to filter what you need...
    Please change the default to show the results for the current conversation or add another quick find or provide…

  3. Search results should show the full thread

    Searching for something works (mostly), however if the thing you're search for is sufficiently far back in time, then it's nigh impossible to actually get results back. Clicking the message says "go to chat to see the rest", but clicking on that does nothing but take you back to the chat at the current time, rather than the target message. If you bookmark the message and try to get at the location in chat via that, then the client just lags and eventually crashes. (while chewing up 100% CPU) Tried the desktop client (developer preview), web client Chrome, web client…

  6. Search Results "Go to the chat" link should take you to the result entry within the relevant chat

    currently the "Go to the chat" link when you're viewing a Search Result takes you to the end of the chat.

    It should bring you to the right date and time, so that you can see the search result in the context of the conversation.

  7. 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…

  8. Integrate 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.

  9. Add location AD to search capability

    Currently in Skype you can search for individuals by location from AD, then you can select a user based a search results. Very helpful to find individuals at a specific location and/or department -- would like to see this feature enabled in Teams. Currently you have to know exactly who you are trying to IM in advance.

  11. Please add file searching for Guest Users

    Guest users are unable to search files in Teams. They get the "Messages" and "People" however "Files" is not present. They are able to search SharePoint no issues, just not teams.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  20. filter date

    In a big organization environment, we have a lot of chats, Teams channel going on. When trying to search certain thread/conversations, filter options built in Teams work fine for the most. But when trying to search certain dates to see the whole thread, it is kind of impossible, without having an option to select date range with calendar pop up to choose the date ranges. without this feature, I am having to go scroll up and down to find the exact date, time etc. Real pain....
    So far with date range filter, it is set to certain period of time:…
