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 request is still on the backlog.
This would be a great way for our team to be able to post a #bestpractice as it comes up and for our members to be able to read the newest #bestpractice as it is posted on the channel. To be able to quick look back at ALL #bestpractices posted this would be an extremely helpful feature.
We're not moving from Yammer until Teams can at least equal it in terms of practical use and not having hashtags makes it unusable for me at the moment.
For instance, throughout the year as we think of items for next years budget, on any group, users simply post their suggestion (in the context of the group/conversation they are in) and add a # "2020 Budget" . Then, come October/November it is childs play for me to do a quick search and pick up all the items across all the groups in the company to make sure I've captured everything that's been considered and asked for throughout the year. MS Teams...not so much, very poor.
#hashtags............ please! it's 2019 bruh 👋
Any update? Even onenote does not have this feature for mac :P
James Truxon commented
just came across this because I assumed this was already a feature... definitely need #tags, please!
Absolutely one of the key updates that could sharply increase usability and enhance user experience. Our team is looking for an easy way to retrieve all conversations cross-channel related to a specific topic. I am actually surprised that this feature is not supported yet. Go #tags!

+1 and I'm speaking on behalf of a team of 100 people here in our organization...
Being able to search by #hashtag or to filter messages in a room and/or team and/or across all teams/rooms that contain a certain #hashtag is absolutely necessary.
Agreed. Without this feature the use of chats has been limited in a business context.
This would be great for searching
adding my vote for the use of tags in MS Teams.
Pins or flags would be good option. It is hard to be up to date with all tasks and deadline, without posiibility to mark tchem as important or undone. Now I need to to set up new task in Outlook and paste a link to the task inside if I want to follow the deadlines. It's time consuming.
Dear MS, any update on # functionality in Teams?

Hi, I would like to add my interest in this feature. Using hastags would be very usefull for us as well.
Is it possible to get any update on this one ?
Kay Peah commented
How long does this have to stay on the backlog without any action taken? It has been nearly 2 years.
Any progress ? Other product in your market already have this and it's a functionality which is industry standard.

My agency has been using Teams for a couple of months. We now have hundreds of conversations & channels – Teams has become a black hole in terms of organization. Without searchable tags, it's impossible to navigate back to information even a few days old.
No tags, no archive functionality, no pins... we're switching back to Slack.

Where is the Vote No button?
Agreed, hasjtags that are searchable would be good
E. Eggelaar commented
Badly needed. We used Synology chat and that can do hashtags.
Teams works good, but no hostages?? Really?
When will it be available?
