Ability to search files within the Files tab in a Team
One good feature would be to be able to search in the Files section within a Team. You can provide a search button so we can search through the Files section without leaving the app.

This would be very helpful within Teams. I know the workaround is to use Sharepoint Online. Not sure why this search option has not be implemented yet within Teams.
Seriously, this would be SO useful.
They implemented the feature to press ctrl + F, but this only searches for messages! For people who want to search files (and exclude messages) this function is useless.
Please, implement a search bar within the files tab so we can easily and quickly search files within the files tab!
Why is there not a proper file explorer built into Teams? You should be able to find file names, file extension, file content. There should be a full context search
The search is very weak. You should be able to search for anything including files across everything you have access to. Teams is a great place to share, but having to click through every file tab on every channel is no solution. Sharepoint search was always terrible. Teams needs to redo this functionality and take a look at Outlook rather than sharepoint as the template.
The fact that this was not an obvious, non-trivial implementation really makes me question the competance of the team behind Teams. If it aint broke, why remove the feature???????

Found that I can search for files fairly easily. The problem I am facing with this feature though is that it does not take you to the actual record, but the search results. I am needing to delete a file that was added in 11/18 and is too far back for Teams to bring up in standard listing.
Using the search does not allow for deletion of files.

would be great if this feature was developed.

My group is adding files to Teams, but we need to be able to easily search by filename

A workaround is to open the files tab in a SharePoint Online page and then search from there. Can this be integrated into Teams page & client ?
