  2. 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…

  3. Search tab

    Add an option to search for specific words during a conversation, the way Whatsapp highlights the word to show in what conversation has been used.

  5. 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!

  6. Search on recent

    It would be very useful to be able to search by person and see any recent conversations with them in the recent area.

    At the moment the recent tab doesn't filter nor is it possible to search, which means its very hard to find any recent chat involving the contact.

  8. Improve the message search option

    You should be able to search key words in an specific channel or conversation with someone.
    Currently the search bar on the top will search for everything in every channel/conversation, which some times its not useful. You should be able to filter out the search better

  9. Allow search by date, showing all relevant messages and uploaded files on that date

    A great way to chunk information out is by chronological order. Teams is so useful but feels like a nonstop stream of information. Regular keyword searching is helpful, but being able to go back through our days and weeks and see defined lines (possibly a vertical layout of the flow, with dotted lines to separate days?).

  10. When searching for a team, the drop down search doesn't show all teams I belong to

    I belong to hundreds of teams. We keep track of our projects on individual teams. The team name has the client name in it. I want to be able to find all projects belonging to the same client. But when I type the client's name in the search bar the teams found on the drop down box are not exhaustive. It only displays three or four results out of many it should be matching. This is the same behavior on the app, on the web-app and even in share point.

    Other that scrolling through the hundreds of teams I have,…

  11. Changing the way activity is displayed on the feed

    I believe that it would be helpful to be able to change the order in which activity is displayed on the feed. Personally I would prefer the most recent activity to be displayed towards the top as opposed to needing to scroll all the way down to see the newest information. Possibly having a menu option to toggle between the two so that people can change it to their preference.

  13. Go To New

    The Command/Ctrl + E feature is great, but I think it could be improved. I'd expect it to work more similarly to the Command + K feature in Slack.

    First, as soon as I press the shortcut, the first available options should be a list of the latest notifications, with the most recent notification already selected, so I can easily jump to it by pressing Enter.

    Once I start typing, instead of the selection defaulting to search, it should default to the top result, so I can easily jump to that selection using Enter.

  15. Finding people requires clicking on the people word at the top. Almost all users miss this step

    When searching for someone to chat with the default is to search within messages. You have to click on the people word at the top. However this isn't clear from the UI. Most users miss that they can click on the words at the top causing them to think that the user they are looking for doesn't exist. In 6 months I've been called by every new employee about this. Turn them into tabs or some other way to highlight that so that they are clickable.

  16. Legal hold on all Teams users even if no mailbox

    O365 does not allow putting a legal hold on teams accounts if they do not have a mailbox in O365. Teams channels by default get shared mailboxes created but if a Teams user does not have a mailbox we cannot put a legal hold on their messages.

    We expect to migrate our mailboxes to hybrid/cloud in 2019 but until this this is a shortcoming.

  19. Search teams’ content from external sharepoint sites.

    Allow external sharepoint sites search capabilities to index teams’content, so the main intranet site using sharepoint can also find data within different teams. Also, support that team data be found on GDPR compliance (if not, I am still figuring out the compliance center).
