Add a search box into each channel so i can search all conversations within that channel only including all history of the channel.
This is something you can already do: Simply search for something in the Search bar and FILTER the search results by team and Channel

This would be extremely helpful as we have LARGE amounts of content in our teams and need a way to be able to filter results to specific channels.
I think this is essential as we use channels to update everyone with new features and videos. I know the channel where the content is but its now got so much useful info in it I can't actually easily find what I need. I want a quick search box at the top of that channel to search just in that channel.

Please allow search within a specific channel. When someone references a previous statement within the conversation, make it easy to find. It is not easy to find with the current search box.

Please add per-channel search function. Cross-sectional searches that are already available are also useful, but sometimes we want to search within a particular channel.
Jon Beckman commented
The current search function through the command bar feels cumbersome. A channel-specific search bar would be more efficient.
At least being able to set up a default search location as the last viewed channel would help immensely.

This is crucial because searching everything is near-useless when the search term is common. Imagine searching all of Teams (I am already in 40 or so) for the word "meeting" or the word "address". Searching within a particular channel or user chat history would let me see only what is relevant.
This is important to be able to limit to a particular Channel in the filter vs just the Team.
related / similar to https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/32431529-searching Basically we want to be able to search in a given context and not globally as we already know the context, right?
Would love this!!! Please add. Searching through One Note or general File Library requires me to move away from Teams and into the individual apps.
This would be nice on the mobile app as well. There is the search functionality on the overall team, but not in individual channels.
