  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Search in sections in a specific channel

    Can we get a search opportunity that can search after specific words that are written directly in a certain section in a channel (eg in a section in a wiki)

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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!

  19. 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

  20. 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?).
