Please add file searching for Guest Users
Guest users are unable to search files in Teams. They get the "Messages" and "People" however "Files" is not present. They are able to search SharePoint no issues, just not teams.
Would be nice to know if MS is working on this at all, or even aware of this need.
This would be a huge help. We were surprised this was not part of the standard feature set. WE have thousands of files to search, and only people with an O365 account can see the search results. Bummer - please add very, very soon !!
Search works in SharePoint. This is really hard to explain to an end user.
Microsoft please confirm your further actions
Unbelievable - even the guest user has technical permissions to the files he is not able to search for files in MS Teams - June 2019. :-(
Please move on Microsoft Dev Team for MS Teams!
We need it to use TEAMS

Vote! It is a key functionality!
Lets get some votes going on this crucial feature
Currently if they have been provided access to the Team site via group settings they should have access to search files in that location. If they "Open in SharePoint" they can search without issue. Doesn't make sense, the feature is missing from Teams not SharePoint. Since a channel is basically a folder we can set granular permissions now if necessary. We just need the "Search" Tab in Teams.

The permissions granted to guest users should be set to a sensible default, but should be settable by the admin for the channel/team.
