  2. Files search results link back to Team or Channel

    When searching for a file the result will show which team / channel the file is from, but provides no direct way to go to that team / channel.

    Chat results when select show you the tabs for that team and the header provides a breadcrumb to take you to the team. This provides context for the result and a way into related team/channel content.

    File results should provide some way to establish the context for the file and to access other materials from the team/channel working with the file.

  3. 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.

  4. Search function across multiple wiki TABs within a channel

    Search function across multiple TABs within a channel

    We have multiple wiki tabs, containing various product information, within a channel. Users would like to be able to search for words across all wikis to be able to find a product that could be in any of the wikis.

  6. Filtering search results within Files by Channel

    When you search in teams, you can filter search results within Messages by Team and Channel. However, when you can only filter search results within Files by Team. Would be great to be able to filter search results within Files by Team and Channel.

  7. 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.

  8. search

    The Search function does not search WiKi pages ?!
    We had thought that Teams might provide a good location to store information on procedures for each of our teams. But the search function does not locate them. We have paused our deployment of teams until this is resolved.

  9. Join Public Teams Search Directory Failure

    What about to make the directory of Public teams display correctly for users?
    When user click on "Join or create a team" the list of public teams of the organisation appears,
    teh directory of Public teams displays randomly, for some users of the same organization they can se only 2 for others several there is no rule,
    It is a stop for our organization to join MSTeams instead of Slack

  12. meeting search

    Context Aware Search Across All Areas of Teams
    It would be really helpful if we could search specific places in teams independently. i.e. "search w/in conversation" "search meeting names" "search all meeting notes" With a company the size of the one I work for, getting results from all conversations, all channels, is overwhelming and unhelpful, and having to go to outlook and find a meeting and then carry that over to scroll backwards thru meetings is even more cumbersome than it sounds typing.

  13. Allow searching files with partial file name

    Allow file search using partial file name. I see the file when i click on Files icon but when i search for the same using partial name using the 'Search or type a command' box, it does not give any result. I have to give exact and full name of the file for the search to work.

  14. Text search option on individual chat or on a group chat

    Search options are very limited and not very helpful. Please allow to search a text in respective chatbox or respective group. Similar to how whatsapp is integrated.
    We are using Teams as a centralized chat option in our organization and its really difficult to search and traceback some of the information.

  15. 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. Enable "Changed Global Policy" in audit log search

    Enable activity "Changed Global Policy" to see what changed in global policy and who made the changes.

    Because some customers' environment requires multiple Global Administrator, while some GA make changes in global policy without authorization.

    If the audit log search is not enabled with Changed Global Policy, it would increase the difficulty of management and restore global policy settings if the policy is not archived.

  18. navigation history

    Can the < > navigation arrows have a history (right click) to jump to a specific item, instead of doing a lot of clicks to go back and forward (alike the browsers)

  19. Include Folders in Search Results

    Please Include folders in the Search results. This works in Cortana as well as File explorer but unfortunately does not inside the Teams app.

  20. Scroll/ show channel to match selected team after search

    When searching for a team and selecting the team name from the search result, the channel list on the left is not updated to 'scroll to' the team's channels. So the wrong channels are still shown/ I need to manually scroll down the team&channel list on the left to see which channels belong to the now selected team.

    Thanks in advance!
    Jeroen
