Fulltextsearch for Wiki
It seems like the wiki content is not searchable with the global search
A wiki you cannot search for entries is useless...
This feature is now on the backlog. I will update you when we have more details to share.
Is there an ETA for this feature?
Trying to pitch to my leads to get all of our countless PDF, word docs, and process files into our Team's Wiki but will be shot down quickly without a workable search function. Please make this a priority, as most of the country working remote will make VPN navigation on our servers incredibly slow.
Imagine using Wikipedia without a search function.
Why would anyone fully adopt this without search?
Very important and useful feature.

This feature is absolutely vital for better collaboration and sharing knowledge within teams. Without this feature, Wiki fails it purpose.
We need this feature.

The idea to have a searchable wiki was posted on March 15, 2017 - whoa!
On May 22, 2017 it was moved to "Working On It".
Over 3 years later and this thing is still in backlog - whaaaaat?
As of this post, there are just shy of 6,000 votes and 785 comments for this feature!
Do we need to create a GoFundMe page for it and pay the development team directly?
I vote for this to be pushed up. Many organizations are using the wiki as Process & Procedure areas to get rid of hundreds of word documents in SharePoint.
This has all been said 782 times, but I feel compelled to pile on - who thought it was a good idea to de-prioritize a Wiki search feature? I would be curious to see what you think is more important.
My company is getting ready to go all-in in on Teams but I see no way of adopting it without a Wiki search. I will stick with SharePoint until this is corrected.
Status was « working on this » in 2017, then « on the backlog », then « planned » from July to September 2018, and now March 2020 back to « on the backlog » ?
Come on, please fix.
A knowledge base that is not searchable, seriously ?

We want to use Wiki to build a brainstorming document. But at this point, we'll be sticking to OneNote until we can be sure that Wiki is searchable. Looking forward to the development...

A member of my team was investigating the use of Teams as a collaboration option due to the COVID-19 outbreak. So when I saw there was a Wiki option I thought "Well maybe we can capture decisions in the Wiki?" After creating a test page, searching is the first thing I tried to do. After all I need to be able to find information when I have dozens or hundreds of pages. Obviously this failed, which is disappointing and likely ends any interest I have in using Teams as a collaboration platform.
I'll look again once this fundamental feature is added.
The absence of this feature will delay my proposal for our team to adopt Microsoft Teams.
Patrick Redmon commented
I'm shocked this feature has been on the back burner for almost 3 years. This is such a basic and essential function. Please fix.
wast this an oversight? We starting porting over information from our other wiki and now need to seriously consider if this is the right product to use, what is the use of a knowledge base if you can't do a search?
Content searching will be very useful.
Lukas Kuhs commented
Might as well have a spreadsheet that cant do any calculations!
I don't want to sound ignorant but... this is Microsoft. It's a simple text page. Why can't the search be implemented?
