Support hashtags in channels and DMs
Allow clickable links on #hashtagged items ... in a channel or group, perform a search within that group.
For DMs and conversations, search all of your conversations
This feature is on the backlog. I will update you when we have more details to share.
I need a hashtag features in Teams for messages and links sent in channels. As a research group, we just started to use Teams, and it is our third day, and already without this tool, it isn't easy to organize the kind of work we do...

Hashtags would be great. Additionally, there should be a possibility for a user to follow a hashtag to get an activity stream (which might help to find teams/channels where a special topic is discussed) or to create calculated channels/columns comparable to tweetdeck.

Search for a Hashtag in the search bar searches globally in Teams for all posts with this hashtag.
Klicking a Hashtag in a Conversation or Private Chat, searches in exactaly this scope.
That would be so awesome!
I am surprised that this feature has not yet been implemented. i would use it with my own tags to easily search some kinds of conversation.

If we started to # posts now, would they work once this feature is active? That way we could start using # for topics now and plan for the future.
Joe Susag commented
We would use this feature on a daily basis, I'm very surprised this was not an option form the very beginning. I'm hoping for an update on this soon and hoping that this feature will also offer the ability to search hashtags and see analytics. We're hoping to use MS Teams they way other organizations use Salesforce Chatter or Slack.
I would also like to send a conversation part to a to Do (planner f.e.) in an easy way

We need to vote for this feature ? Really ??? How Product Owner priorize ?? Animated gif and sticker is more important ? more valuable than this core feature for collaborative business ?
It works in ADS/TFS and Sharepoint...
Build a Teams room with your internal dev. teams ;-)

I am surprised as well that this feature has not yet been implemented. This would greatly improve content structure and is a must in the "tagging era"

That's sad, we're wating 4 years for that functionality and at least from 2 years it's in backlog. :(
With many schools and businesses using Teams now for distance learning during COVID19, hashtags would be extremely helpful for managing all the files, topics, etc. Many of our files have multiple topics and having hashtags would help make filing more intuitive.
It is not very pleasant to see which features Microsoft currently prioritizes.
It seems to be much more important to make the background image customizable than this one.
Stuart McBain commented
Plus include in Team analytics e.g. see most used hashtags in a team or channel and be able to select a particular hastag and see it's usage over time...
This helps measure the excitement a topic is generating within a Team (which is one of our usecases for hashtags)
Samuel Oliver commented
Yes please important feature to be able to use teams as a file repository.
This is a very important feature to structure business channels - please prioritize soon ;)
this feature is much needed.
Hi Alex, It's now 2 months after the last update. We've lived in a #hashtag world for at least a decade now. How about getting this one #committed to a #sprint and a #release?
Teams is putting in all this work to make Teams for Home users, Teams for Schools, Teams for Frontline works. It'd be nice if they'd work on Teams for Teams users and stop spreading so thin.
Daniel Weir commented
Boy does this need to be added immediately. Teams was a great solution for small things before COVID, but now all my colleagues are climbing on my back about Teams feature lack relative to things like Zoom or, in this case, Slack.
Joey G commented
3 years later such a simple feature is in 'backlog'?
