  1. Add location AD to search capability

    Currently in Skype you can search for individuals by location from AD, then you can select a user based a search results. Very helpful to find individuals at a specific location and/or department -- would like to see this feature enabled in Teams. Currently you have to know exactly who you are trying to IM in advance.

  2. Search for (and/or Call) Office 365 Contacts, Exchange Mail Users/Contacts

    Our organisation has many external users (mail users) and Office 365 Contacts in our Global Address List. Skype for Business has the ability to search for these contacts in the GAL and we can easily make calls to them.

    We need this same functionality in Teams.

  5. Search on Partial Names

    I'd like to be able to search on partial names. For instance, if I'm looking for "Robert Smith", when I type in "Rob" I may get 20 people proposed. I want to be able to type in "Rob S" and get Roberts with a last name starting with S. However, the search currently does an exact match. So "Robert" != "Rob" and "Robert Smith" falls out of the results.

    Given names in Teams:
    "Robert Adams", "Rob Dean", "Robert Nice", "Robert Smith"

    As is:
    "Rob" matches "Robert Adams", "Rob Dean", "Robert Nice", "Robert Smith"
    "Rob S" matches no results

    Would like: …

  6. Find in Conversation

    Ideally there'd be a way to search / find / filter directly in conversation pane. The search on the upper left of chat just shows me conversations where it appears but I want to navigate and highlight each occurrence of a search string within a conversation thread - particularly long ones with long comments where my name is mentioned.

  7. view public team in tenant

    When user clicks "Join or create a team", public teams are listed.
    Currently, these teams are not of all public teams. Only teams that are related to me or other members are shown.

    Please add options "All public teams" are shown.

  8. Sorting Team members

    A small, but very useful improvement would be: To be able to sort the Members of a Team under "Manage team" menu, by Status, Name, Title, Location, Role, etc.

    Integrate Teams chat into Outlook email search so that Outlook email search results include relevant Teams chats (like how relevant Skype chats are included in a search done in Outlook email).

  12. Add search function within each team.

    The overall search box does not allow you to search within a individual team only.

  13. Search teams in mobile app

    Search in the iOS mobile app does not return teams names, so the only way to find a specific team seems to be scrolling through the whole teams list. Could you please add this feature?

  16. Search Results "Go to the chat" link should take you to the result entry within the relevant chat

    currently the "Go to the chat" link when you're viewing a Search Result takes you to the end of the chat.
    It should bring you to the right date and time, so that you can see the search result in the context of the conversation.

  17. filter date

    In a big organization environment, we have a lot of chats, Teams channel going on. When trying to search certain thread/conversations, filter options built in Teams work fine for the most. But when trying to search certain dates to see the whole thread, it is kind of impossible, without having an option to select date range with calendar pop up to choose the date ranges. without this feature, I am having to go scroll up and down to find the exact date, time etc. Real pain....
    So far with date range filter, it is set to certain period of time:…

  20. Searching chat history, possibility to jump to selected/filtered result

    Searching chat history, possibility to jump to selected/filtered result.
    The search today is not very useful, i.e. if not all information is in the same post as the searched phrase. Most ofthen you rember talking about something, but also need to read the related chat posts, i.e. not only the post with the exact search phrase.

    Add possibility to jump to a post in search result and see the chat post in chat thread context.
