  1. Search Option on file

    As a user i would like to search for a specific file on the list of files uploaded on the system so that I can efficiently work.

    I currently have hundreds of files uploaded on my Teams profile and I need to access specific ones in different times. I spend a lot of time looking through the list.

  2. I want to search names from chat list

    sometimes it's hard to find an older chat from the chat list. It would be great if I could search for chats by chat name or anything related

  3. Chart search field at top

    On the Chat screen, rather than click on the filter icon, please place a blank space above the list of names that you can actively search names and words.

  4. Change the name of the product

    The name Teams is such a generic name, it is very difficult to Google any issues related to it without having to sift thru a million other hits that pertain to teams, the generic word. I have to always include Microsoft in front of Teams and that complicates search more. Always, always use a unique name for products so it stands out as a keyword on its own

  6. for "new chat" searching for department abbreviation -> display related employees

    I am searching for the abbreviation of my team and none of my colleagues get displayed.

    e.g. entering "BEG/ESC4" i am expecting that all employees which are tagged with or have this abbreviation next to their name get displayed in popup search result.

  10. Search in Teams should search text in URL. Example if anyone type

    Teams should be able to search against an URL.

    Example, If someone had share an url in a chat https://aka.ms/mfasetup
    later on you want to search for MFA or aka.ms.
    The result for the chat that has the url will not show up.

    If the user type aka.ms/mfasetup <-- which is not an url, it will show up in the search result.

    Team Search should treat url as text and return the result when search.

  11. Please provide the Search/Find option in the chat window, so it will help us to identify the particular messages over a period.

  12. About the user search for us to start a new group

    I have added users from chat, and when group chat, I feel the inconvenience of "more than 3 characters" when searching for a user.

    I would like to see better search conditions, such as forward matching.

  14. Keep Up

    I just want to goose this topic a little bit. I see it is in the "working on it" stage.

    Seriously? no search? none? This product was released without being able to use CTRL+F? Are you all soft? It's one thing to release a Microsoft version of some other popular communication system like slack or discord, but that isn't any kind of an excuse to do such a bad job. Just use Slack or Discord, and think hmmm, how can I do the same thing on this program people will pay too much money for. It's not that hard, everybody…

  15. Allow the search bar to function like OneNote.

    So many posts, so hard to find. YES you can save them, but not as functional. People are very used to the onenote search function where it brings up every time a "Healthcare" has been mentioned. Missing this

  16. Ability to search the section you are in instead of the whole application. (Same goes for SharePoint)

    Right now when you search Teams or SharePoint, you search the entire thing. I do realize there is a filtering section, but it is very inefficient and time consuming. Thanks.

  17. Specify a team to see the contributor’s details for the message we received in a certain period

    It would be great if we could specify a team to see the message contributor’s details for the message we received in a certain period. This function would be helpful to see who and when the message was posted if there are many team members.

  18. Add meeting to the list of filters available for Activity feed

    It is difficult to sort through a channel conversation thread to find past meeting to be able to find notes/chat for a specific meeting

    Better yet, roll up those meeting notes into a notebook for the channel, adding pages for each meeting's notes

  19. Show all users who have the same surname you searched with

    It would be great if the search result could show all suggested users who have the same surname you searched with. When you search with the surname, up to 10 suggested users will be shown in the result, even if there were actually 20 users who match with the surname. We could get misunderstood the user doesn’t exist as he won’t be shown in the result.
    It is inconvenient to search users with full name or email address.

  20. Allow internal users to see the list of all users in his organization via Teams

    I would like you to implement a feature that internal users could see the list of all users in his organization via Teams. When you search with surname in Teams, you couldn’t see all users who match with the surname in the search result. So, you might misunderstand the user does not exist as he is not in the result.
