Search Meeting notes function
Having a search feature that searches all the pages under meeting notes for a certain topic or area so I don't have to spend ages looking through past notes for a certain thing.

What is the point of putting notes in the meeting notes if they cannot be easily searched and found? I see that I can use Bing but that is still very awkward and inefficient (doesn't even redirect you to back to the teams notes if you wanted to add something.
Replace Meeting notes with OneNote notes. You can add members, meeting invite notes, more easily shared and doesn't matter if someone was on the meeting invite.
OneNote is far better for search, sharing and transparency.

So you can search meeting notes - by looking in the "Files" filter in the search results.
It shows a link to the .mht file where the content is: of course this should really be a link to open the actual meeting notes!
Please Microsoft fix this issue.
Come on! RLY? Still no search in Meeting notes?!? Gogo feature pull request!

We add a Teamshared Onenote notebook as tab. That lets us use the entire Onenote capability including search.

It's crazy that you can't search meeting notes. Please get this in right away
Original post in July 2018 for such a critical need and still nothing? Tsk tsk MS

Very surprised there is actually no search possibility in the meeting notes

This is essential, and confusing for users to understand why search doesn't cover all of teams
Without this basic search ability this meeting notes feature is not usable / completely useless.
I'm confused about why this wasn't implemented into OneNote.
There seems to be too much overlap here.
If I am in Outlook, I have an option for Meeting Notes on an invite, and that integrates with OneNote. I can then use the Search features of OneNote.
Not sure where teams is going. Not only is it not integrated, but I can't even use TEAMS search to find something at the moment.

If there is some technical reason this doesn't work, please instead allow us to swap out the wike for One Note which is at least searchable.

How is this not a base feature?
We were considering to switch our team to Teams, including saving all internal meeting notes there. But if we cannot use 'search' for meeting notes then it's a huge disadvantage

It is a bit nuts that in the 21st century we can't search for a keyword and find it anywhere on the Teams channel. Manually searching through notes makes no sense. Time to go back to Slack?
Greg Tilford commented
This is absolutely needed! A previous thread (had 56 comments) claimed this feature exists, and the thread was closed. This is NOT the case. Also, the ability to show a time index notes will be invaluable. I'll create a separate thread on this topic.

When you have a reoccurring meeting and you are looking for something 8 weeks ago that might be a bit time consuming looking for that content.
"When did they talk about X subject? What did they decide about X subject?"
These are simple, common questions. I'm surprised we actually have to request this functionality.
Yes, we must be able to search for content contained within meeting notes. Office 365, OneDrive, SharePoint, etc. do a great job of allowing us to do universal searches; however, Meeting Notes are not included. That does not make sense. Within the Teams application, we should at least be able to search for content in the meeting notes.
