  1. 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.

  2. User search in Microsoft Teams

    I would like you to improve the searching feature to exclude users who have not been assigned Microsoft Teams license from the search result.

  3. Improve the behavior which shows duplicated user name in the reach result

    Teams search result shows two duplicated user names when searching with full email address of the user via the search or type a command box in Teams. Either of them redirects me to the correct chat page, but I would like you to fix this behavior to show only one suggestion.

  4. Search should include special characters

    Searching for a person called "René", I can't just type "Rene" - it has to be "René". This works in other Office products, but not Teams.

    So, please make search a little smarter on that point.

  5. search for old chat in mobile app doesn't scroll to selected message

    In the mobile app (Android), search for a historical chat (old enough to not be initially visible when chatting with that individual). When clicking on that search result, the chat channel is pulled up but not scrolled to that message.

    I was searching for a chat from 11/26 today (3/4). This is a frequently used chat, so would take forever to scroll up.

    This works correctly in the app on Windows.

  7. Quick Search for Teams and Channels

    Ability to do a quick search for Teams you are already joined and also for channels. Pls make just a quick text box in the upper part of the teams and channels panel on the left side. Not a big deal for you, but a big deal for us!

  10. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Search and filter through tasks/assignments

    It's a must for us considering to use Team channels as groups with different assignments

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Add Metatags at the Team level

    Need to be able to metatag at the Team, Channel, Folder and Doc levels, so metatags are inherited at the highest level.

  19. 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.

  20. Add slash command to start chat with somone

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