  1. meeting search

    Context Aware Search Across All Areas of Teams
    It would be really helpful if we could search specific places in teams independently. i.e. "search w/in conversation" "search meeting names" "search all meeting notes" With a company the size of the one I work for, getting results from all conversations, all channels, is overwhelming and unhelpful, and having to go to outlook and find a meeting and then carry that over to scroll backwards thru meetings is even more cumbersome than it sounds typing.

  3. private teams should have option to be hidden from search or not

    Users can not search for private rooms to ask for membership approval. They can search for public teams but those can not be member approved by owners.
    We would like to have an option when creating private team whether it is hidden from search or not so users could easily find us and ask for membership.

  6. Teams does not find files in folders

    When I search for a file, Teams finds the files that are stored at the root level, but not the files that are inside folders.

  9. Searching contacts using partial names

    Searching using a first name (e.g. Thomas) usually results in a list of several people with that name (with different last names). Then you need to use TAB to select the right one. Slow and not very convenient.

    Alternatively and it's the way some other apps to it, you could search using the first letters of the first name (e.g. Tho) and beginning of the last name (e.g. Jef for Jefferson).

    This way you'll usually get a unique result using only 2-3 letters of the first and last name. e.g. th je usually finds the right Thomas Jefferson ;)y

  10. Search function on mobile app should also show files.

    When you search on desktop team app the results ‚messages‘ ‚members‘ and ‚files‘. When you search on mobile app (iOS) the search result is only ‚messages‘ and ‚ members‘. You should also search files on mobile apps.

  11. Invariant Culture User Search

    When searching for users the search should be in an invariant culture. Since there are many ways to type a name in different regions it's very uncomfortable having to find the correct spelling for a name. Ej. "José" should be a result for search "Jose" as I don't know if the name has a mark or not or whether it was even created correctly in Active Directory.

  12. Search bar searching within connected cloud folders

    I use the box cloud sync to house files. While it is convenient to access the files in my box folders from the teams menu it is silly that the search bar does not search within connected folders.

  13. Search doesn't default to people

    I expect to search people in teams to find who they are, or start a conversation with them. Every time I search I see no results and then I remember that I have to switch to "people" tab. I recommend having a global search; why have two tabs and an extra click to find people results? Reduces efficiency and creates user frustration.

  14. search notebook contents

    The contents of OneNote Notebook files need to be searchable. The fact that MS has a wonderful search capability in SharePoint and such bad searching in Teams is difficult to understand.

  18. Extend Application Search

    It would be great if the search would also search content of Microsoft services as a start (tabs specifically). For example, search Stream video titles, Planner tasks, VSTS items, or PowerBI Dashboards. I would not expect this to work for "Website" of course. These would be an additional category next to the current messages, people, and files choices. To support 3rd party, perhaps there could be some way for a developer to specify that their app also has search and then you could include a GitHub or category in the future.

  19. Add slash command to start chat with somone

    You already have /call -- what about /chat? A much more common use case for me.
