  4. 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.

  5. Please add file searching for Guest Users

    Guest users are unable to search files in Teams. They get the "Messages" and "People" however "Files" is not present. They are able to search SharePoint no issues, just not teams.

  8. 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.

  9. Conversation subject in chat search

    Chat Search results to include Conversation Subject

    It would be very useful if the search results would include / display the conversation subject. currently search only shows the content.

  11. Searching - go to chat

    When I finally find the message that contains a phrase that I was searching, I would like to see it in a wider context. By clicking 'go to chat' I understand 'go to chat, where the phrase was found'. Now 'go to chat' leads me to the last message from the chat.

  12. Search function is slow

    The search functionality is slow compared to the same function in Slack. It would be very helpful to decrease the time associated with searching within the search bar.

  13. microsoft teams search feature sucks.

    When you search MicrosoftTeams you should be able to go to that point in a particular conversation rather than just see the single chat message that contains your search item. Without this, there is no point and it makes me want to never use Teams again.

  14. search

    When you search for a team, then click on a team, the navigation pane does not move to that team so you can't see the channels. You still have to manually find the team in the list to see the channels within the team.
    Clicking search result should make the navigation pane jump to that team and expand it to see the channels.

  16. 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.

  17. Matching Channels Should Show Up in Team Search

    Channel names that match a search in "Team Search" should show up in the search along with the team they are a part of.

    Depending on how we use the two entities they could be relatively interchangable - a user searching should not have to know ahead of time that the "abc" channel they are looking for is a part of "xyz team"

  18. Favorite Search - Saved Searches

    Have the option to pin to favorites bar "Saved Searches", or "Virtual channels" or "Alert Channels" or whavetever the name, you get the idea.. be able to define a search and get an unread count when there are matches on it. Ideal to track common terms across all of the teams you are connected to.

  19. Wiki search results display

    When searching for a string using the top search/command bar the Wiki pages are included in the search with is good.
    Unfortunately the results can’t be displayed within Teams. you have to download an mht file and open it locally with a web browser.
    It sounds strange that documents created and edited within teams can’t be displayed when part of search results...
    It makes it almost useless

  20. It would be helpful to be able to search Subject Lines or # identified words

    It would be helpful to be able to search by Subject Line or to be able to mark key words with a # to search later. When I search for #, any words that I have marked with # would show up.
