Searching or Joining Public Teams
As part of our Teams deployment we are trying to find a way within the Teams client or a Teams policy/configuration setting to enable a better user experience for joining/searching for public Teams. I have done extensive searching online and have not been able to find anything to modify the join/search behavior for public Teams.
The "Join or create a team" option in the desktop application will only display 16 public Teams that can be joined. Using the /join team code will only display the same 16 public teams that can be joined.
The "Search teams" function is limited because any search performed will only return public Teams if the first name of the team matches the search string. For example we have a "User Experience Research" public Team. The only way to have the Team returned in a search is if you use a "user" type string. If you search using a "experience" or "research" type string, no results are returned.
