  4. Create a search function for past chats and past files

    I think it would be a good idea to add a search function for the past chats and past files. This would enhance efficiency significantly.

  5. Can't share a search result with a teammate

    Sometimes I search for a file for someone else. Once I find that file, I can't share it!
    1. The "Start Conversation" button is not available! MS Teams is all about conversations yet you can't converse on a search result! It is odd that that would go away just because I used search instead of browse to find the file.

    2. There is no sign of a file pathname. If I could at least see the pathname, I could then navigate to the asset and use start conversation there. Or if there was a "copy link" I could go old…

  7. Have each folder sort A-Z

    Every time I create a new folder it stays at the top, but I need them to sort A-Z or at least have the option to sort.

  8. Search capability in dialog box for adding cloud storage to Files tab.

    Search capability in dialog box for adding cloud storage to Files tab. Not sure that the list order is at this time. Alpha order would be better. A quick search box, better.

  9. Filter on Task description, Checklist Items and Comments

    Enhance the Filter feature in the Teams Planner tab in the following ways:
    1. Typing in a filter/search term should find words in a Task description (not just the Task title)
    2. Typing in a filter/search term should find words in Task Checklist Items and Comments as well
    3. Typing in a persons name should filter the people in the list so you don't have to scroll through people to find the person you want to filter by.

    *Note: Trello already does this.

  10. Search in iOS/iPadOS should work as web and/or desktop version

    The search experience now is not up to par.

    It behaves quite different compared to the desktop version. Also missing the possibility to navigate fast between teams and/or channels and performing commands in the mobile version.

    Pls make it a coherent experience between the platforms. At the moment I can’t use Teams as efficient on my iPad app. Often find myself forced to use the web version instead. Although that one works quite well since iPadOS have full desktop web experience now.

  11. Search needs the same abilities as SharePoint and Search needs to be reworked

    No one likes the results provided by Search. People are looking to use # tags and other markers to be able to find their content. People love SharePoint's searchability, works fantastic for files and file content, that needs to be brought to Teams. Some people also get lost of what they are searching for as Teams seems to default to categories of search and not even realize it. There needs to be searching for Team Names, Channel names, channel chat content, IM's, files and clearly marked as such. Believe it or not, this single thing is keeping my company from…

  13. Manage the searching result for users

    It would be great if you could add options to narrow down the searching result for users in the search box/bar in Teams.

  14. Search for People BUG

    Actually this is a bug. I can not search for people because Teams can not find people based on fractions of their names, ex:
    "Rodrigez Yazvedo, Juan Maria" can not be found by typing "Juan Yazvedo" nor "Juan Rodrigez".

    Teams is unable to find a person, unless I know the person's made-up Teams name (family name comma first name), and start typing a string that is contained as an exact sub-string within the made-up name.

  16. Please add a search feature within chats.

    Please add a search feature within chats, to allow for finding particular conversations etc more convenient. It can be quite difficult scrolling through weeks of conversation, simply to find a quote from someone.

  18. Improve breadcrumbs in search results to show thread title

    The breadcrumb trail only shows the team conversation area. It should also show the title if there is a title to the thread. That way you can quickly tell if you're in the right area before you respond about a topic that you need to update. Keyword does not always give much filtering, so there may be a lot of results showing.
