Matching Channels Should Show Up in Team Search
Channel names that match a search in "Team Search" should show up in the search along with the team they are a part of.
Depending on how we use the two entities they could be relatively interchangable - a user searching should not have to know ahead of time that the "abc" channel they are looking for is a part of "xyz team"
Our large Enterprise company recently began transitioning from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams, and we already have over 2,000 active Teams users, ~100 Teams (Public and Private) and a few hundred Channels. Ultimately, over 18K "knowledge workers" will switch to Teams, and we are already running into a headache: How do we avoid duplicate Channels which share the same purpose?
One way to help solve this problem would be to list Channel names with their description in the MS Teams search results, but currently only Channel CONTENT appears in search results.
I am surprised this doesn't have more votes, but as companies begin to experience the headaches of having to manage 1,000's of Channels, people will begin asking for this feature.
Ditto on this - we include bug numbers in our channel names - to search by bug numbers to find a channel would be very beneficial.
Teams would be a great tool for us. We could have a team for each of our clients but since there is no way to search channel names this will not work.
That is a shame because Teams checks the box for everything else we need.

We have just started using MS Teams and find it very challenging that you cannot search for channel names. I am surprised there are not more votes for this functionality. Is there another discussion on this function?
I should have qualified this with "For public teams" as that is the scenario I tested that does not work. For discoverability and onboarding to MS teams purposes this is similar to: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/19081024-links-to-channels-in-public-teams-don-t-work
