  1. Improvements for User search results

    Make user search in Teams consistent

    In Teams, we are seeing different results depending on the method we use to search for a user in Teams.

    1.In Chat, if you type a user name out in the Search area and go to people, what comes back is the name ALONG with their UPN ID (Like XZXXX1@nam.corp.conteso.com)
    2. In Chat, if you go to just start a chat with someone, and type in their name you will see the name along with their USER ID only (like XZXXX1)
    3. In a channel, if you go to mention a person using…

  2. Show entire conversation on with search results

    Currently when you search for older messages and select a result Teams will only return the one result. If it's a conversation from 3 months ago where I only know a handful of words I really am looking for some context, and showing the surrounding messages (like slack or discord) would help a ton.

  3. Information Barriers for Business Premium License

    In order to control visibility between departments, executives, and users, implementing Information Barriers are the best bet. This feature is necessary for business Premium Licenses, when will it be available for this type of license?

    We are looking for a way to limit visibility between departments, as well as separation of executives and users as Address Book Policy does not work for our environment.

  6. view shared media

    when a given image or media is shared, it is hard to find. we have to scroll back until we find it. it would be helpful if there is an option to see all shared media per user shared with.

  7. Improve search feature

    Slack has the right idea when it comes to a simple and powerful search field. It allows me to search in a given channel, for a comment made by a specific individual on a given day. It uses syntax like ‘from:bob’ ‘on:yesterday’. Right now if I use search, it searches all channels, postings by everybody and I don’t find it useful. With improvements like those I’ve suggested, I would actually use it. Right now I scroll a few times. If I don’t find what I’m looking for, I go ask the author to post the information again. I’d rather be…

  8. be able to search for documents which have been uploaded to a team channel.

    It would be very helpful to be able to search for documents that have been loaded onto a channel in teams, rather than having to scroll through them all. If a key word was known, it would save so much time! Thanks.

  11. Include team private chat title in search

    When I've renamed a teams group chat I am not able to find the chat with search if I search on the group title. Searching on words in the chat does work, but I would like to search on the group chat title/name.

  12. search conversations

    The Search in Teams is not finding parts of keywords in the start of a conversation, only in the comments. If you search for the complete word, it will be found in the start of a conversation.

    You can find an example in my screenshot (sorry for German inside that screen).

    I expected that this is an error/incident. But Premier support told me, that this is "by design". So now we have to vote for a default function of every search...

  14. Search setting for guest users in Microsoft Teams

    I would like you add a specific search setting that allows below:

    1. When a user performs user search, s/he is able to search users in the same tenant.
    2. At mean time, when a guest user performs a search, s/he can search only guest users in the team (or Office 365 group) which s/he is belonging to.

  16. search redirect to find message block

    For group message search wil not take you to the block where you acutally made the converastion rather than just shows the message.

    This should be working similar to messages found for a single user.

  18. After search for a document in teams, show the folder it lives in and allow direct access to its link

    After search, for files, in Teams, one can see the list of results, but 1 a) one can not find out where (in which team/channel/folder) the found document lives.
    b) one can not get a URL link to the document (and since it is not possible to see where the document lives, can't even get it indirectly.

    Currently the workaround it so open the document, save as, and from save as see where it is proposed to be saved.

    Often we search because we need to tell someone else where to find the information and the above fixes will help…
