  1. Provide "Open File Location" option in search

    When i search for files, i am unable to tell the location of the file from the search results. All it shows under file name in search results is "<<Team Name>>/Shared Documents". So we are unable to tell which channel it is and which sub-folder in the channel it is in.

    Can we have a "Open file location" option in context menu or have the file location shown in search results under the file?

  2. Ability to see only active users (filter our inactive)

    Currently, I can see all the users in a Chat view (Recent, Contacts), with a status icon indicating whether user is active, inactive or not connected, etc. Having hundreds of users in your chats and contacts, it is very difficult to navigate through those that are currently active and I can chat to right now. The filter or sorting by active / availability status (e.g. show me those active and inactive for less than 5 minutes, filter out or inactive or away, sort by showing active first, etc.). This feature for me is essential in chat applications, and most apps…

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  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. 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.

  14. Search Feature

    Teams should have a search feature. If it logs all the chat then it should allow the users to search keywords on all chats too.

  16. Include Folders in Search Results

  17. 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.

  18. Searching in Saved Messages

    We use Microsoft Teams at my workplace and we really like the opportunity to save documents, posts or photos. When there is a task and a deadline in a post, I just save it and then I can check it easily at the 'Saved messages' tab. So I won't forget it. The only one problem is with the saving posts is if there are too many posts then hard to find and manage them, so it would be essential and important that users could SEARCH only between the saved messages.

  19. 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!
