  1. provide an online, written, operators manual.

    Provide a written operators manual that can be accessed online. for those of us who don't learn as well by watching a video this would be a tremendous help. It also provides a reference that we can return to as needed when having trouble navigating the stystem.

  2. Obtain more @mentions by running /mentions in Teams

    I would like to obtain more @mentions by running /mentions in Teams. Currently we can get @mentions sent within the last one month.It would be great if I can customize days/months which Teams looks up from, and I want to get more results from more than last one month.

  3. User search in Teams

    With the user search in Teams and its behavior followed by ABP, it would be great that we could exceptionally search a certain domain.

  4. Consolidated search of links and attachments that can be filtered by chat/channel.

    File search exists, but would be improved by having chat/channel filters.

    More importantly is that we need to be able to search all documents, even those that weren't put in the files section, but we're just attachments in threads. Additionally all links and docs should be captured and referenceable from a straightforward UI container element that consolidates all of them.

  5. Search option on top of all chats and Teams channel for easy reference

    A search field similar in Outlook when we type names, subject, or body contents. Please let's have this as soon as possible. Thank you!

  7. 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.

  8. Exclude retired users from the Teams search result

    Teams user search feature finds users who retired and removed from AAD, because it looks up them through cache. It’s inconvenient that we have to clear those caches from Teams client each time, so I would like you to improve the search feature to set aside users who are not existed in AAD.

  9. Search Messages by User Profile Property

    My customer (in GCC) is a large agency with multiple locations. The BAs at each location would like to be able to search for all messages across al teams by users at their location in, say, the past day to ensure all needs are being met. Their location is a profile property. Please add the capability to perform a global advanced search for messages where a user property matches given text (wildcard). Alternatively, perform a global advanced search for messages where a user is in a given O365 Group or Security Group. They have security groups which have all location…

  10. 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.

  11. Get a better feedback system. This is total rubbish.

    This is a waste of space. I come to this site to help and it is a maelstrom of mess. I won’t be back.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Searching team members with their designation

    In a huge Organization usually, there is a lot of hiring and many people leave often. there is a rotation of people changing their designations every now and then. Hence, if a person/ team member can be searched by her/his designation, it will be a lot easier to find team members.

  15. Expand the highlighted message from search results


    1. search for a string found in a long message

    2. find message in messages tab

    3. click message

    4. see message collapsed in conversations tab

    This happened to me, while looking for a URL, I couldn’t tell I was looking at the right message because the message it was in was collapsed.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Copy To Function Searching

    When moving a file or folder location from team structure to team structure or sharepoint to sharepoint allow for Searching in the side bar, and sort teams by number/name instead of just randomly.

    See the attached photo.

  19. Highlight search results in the MS Teams file viewer

    The search function in Teams is great, but I would like Teams to highlight search results not only in chats or conversations but also in the files tab. Currently, when searching for a term, it will find all files (docx, pdf, etc...) that include this term somewhere in the file, but one has to open each file manually in its application and use CRTL+F to actually find the term within the file.

    It would be great to have all mentions of the search term highlighted in the file viewer directly in teams. Possibly with a little bar, allowing to jump…

  20. Optional disable of 'read more', allowing unrolled scroll back over older messages

    On similar apps (eg Slack..) I can quickly review old chats by, well, scrolling back. Teams inhibits me from doing this as it appears to insist on 'folding' any form of extended chat. It would be great if this 'folding' was user configurable.
