  1. 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

    • a-z search

      The search feature in the A-Z Contacts section of Calls does not work. I have tried typing in partial names, complete names that are exact matches of existing contacts, and phone numbers of existing contacts... but when I hit enter after typing in that field, my list of contacts is not narrowed down.

      • #Teams

        Trending "hashtags" might help Teams ability to search for common terms that we use. If we can use the # we might be able to click on the term and see all of the other times our group or other groups did the same thing!

        • 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:…

          • 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.

            • 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

              • see all teams

                Join or Create a Team should display all existing Teams in the organization. Currently the Join or Create option only allows Create. The Search field does not display teams not already in my Favourites list that I know exist. Rather it asks if I want to create a new team with the name of the existing team rather than offering me an opportunity to join the existing team.

                • Searching for personal Contacts

                  When searching from the main search can the People Tab return personal contacts ? Otherwise you have to go to "Calls, Contacts, A-Z, Search" to find them then call them.. Thanks

                  • Find/Search > Go to Chat. should take you to that point in time during the chat. Not just the chat window.

                    I want to search for a conversation within a full chat with someone. So, I use keywords in the search function. Teams will find the single message in which I used that keyword but single messages are out of context.

                    The Go to Chat feature just takes you to that chat at the latest message. It should take you to that specific point in time in the chat so that you can see the full context of the conversation.

                    Trying to scroll through days of endless chatter is cumbersome.

                    • Channel search results should open the whole thread

                      When searching for something from a channel conversation, the results returned are atomic, so I cannot find the whole context of the thread.

                      Repro steps:
                      1) Have a conversation in a channel about a complex topic (in this case, using a VPN)
                      2) Allow several other conversations to happen in channel, where scrolling is no longer a convenient way to find it
                      3) Search for your old conversation by keyword
                      4) Select the proper result in the search results pane

                      Expected: You are now at that post in the conversation
                      Currently: A lot of results are in the "main" pane,…

                              • Search has regressed

                                The Search functionality in the latest update to the Teams app seems to have regressed. If you search for something, and find a message with that phrase, when you click on it, it only shows you that exact message.

                                No context.

                                If you click the "Go to that chat" link, it puts you at the latest message in that chat stream, not where the found message is.

                                    • Fix search functionality

                                      Search is quite buggy:

                                      - disabled users are still searchable (even though their account have no license assigned)
                                      - not all people with same name are displayed in the result list
                                      - search in desktop version shows different results than in web version

                                      Please fix this, it's really hard to work without working search functionality.

                                      Thank you,

                                      • Ability to search a Team and a Channel

                                        Searching should be able to be narrowed and limited to the scope of what is currently selected. That would go for Chats, Teams level, Team level, channel level. It would also be nice to access the indexed content in OneNote and other Office files and text files.
