scope a search to the current chat
Searching in teams is useful but it would be nice to be able to limit what actually gets searched.
I often find myself needing to scope my search to just a single chat. i.e. "I know <thing-i'm-looking-for> has been typed in the current chat, go and find it"
Please could you add this capability? i.e. Specify the scope of a search to just be the current chat.

It is already implemented AFAIK.
Here is the main topic with 500+ votes on this topic: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/31074775 Suggest to consolidate feedback there
Ah, I see. It isn't just 6, it's just, only 6 people searched the UserVoice using the word "scope" in their search! A deeper look into the feedback results with a more generic search i.e. "search" revealed 1000s of votes for searcing issues and that highlights a problem with this UserVoice system of reporting issues/ideas.
If Microsoft is using some sort of AI to group together the votes for similar submitted ideas then OK but then they should show the collective votes somewhere so we can see there's attention being brought to an issue/idea. And if indeed there is some sort of grouping together of the votes. Why is this issue not getting any Microsoft development time? Or is it?!

I'm baffled by this reporting method. I can't believe only 6 people (at the time of posting) have had issues finding things because there is no way to scope the search!! As with most MS products, the current container should be the default scope and then an option to widen the scope. As it is, it's almost impossible to find anything unless you're lucky enough that the thing you remember or know about the info you're trying to find just happens to be something obscure.
