Teams search functionality
Please add a search-only feature for currently opened tab in Teams search functionality.
Thank you for your feedback.
We are excited to share that search within a specific chat or channel is now available via Ctrl+F/Cmd+F. To learn more, see: https://support.microsoft.com/office/search-for-messages-and-more-in-teams-4a351520-33f4-42ab-a5ee-5fc0ab88b263.
The ability to search tabs in a chat remains on the backlog. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
Over 300 threads opened regarding the search functionality of MS Teams.
The search features in Teams is abysmal. If you don't know the first few letters of the search item, it finds nothing.
Wildcards do nothing.
Partial string search does nothing.
Localized search?? on in chats - nothing else.
How was this VITAL feature overlooked?
It also does not search in the conversation like Skype did. Being able to search easily would be great!
It's very frustrating when you are in a files tab in a channel, and want to find a specific document and you don't have a search field that allows you to search for a filename or filter for file extensions or a chain of characters.
I can't believe this feature doesn't already exist: I know the message I'm looking for is probably on this channel/chat -- but because of hiding/folding, etc, I can't use my browser's search to find it.
This has come up from many users in our organisation. They would like to search for files within an opened Team, instead of the global search.
I support this suggestion
