Search function is slow
The search functionality is slow compared to the same function in Slack. It would be very helpful to decrease the time associated with searching within the search bar.
It's so slow to look up old chat. I liked how it would send me an email so I could at least recall it faster in later time. This is horrible

I know this is an old one but it's still an issue and came up highly in a Google search for "microsoft teams search very slow". The search itself is fairly quick on the desktop app, but opening a result to see the content is ridiculously slow and usually locks everything up. I've found that using the website instead (teams.microsoft.com) is much better - try that if you're having issues.
wish there was an option to optimize the cache. when i search something, the whole Teams goes lagging for an hour. even if im not scrolling through search results anymore.
After I found a somewhat related search result, I am now scrolling the messages to the exact message I was searching for. It's been 20 minutes. The chat history is that slow.

Chats, file lists and previous search indexes are small and easily cached locally. They should be kept locally for speed reasons and for search. Search should check the cache first, present results, and then go to the server for additional information.
