  1. be able to search for documents which have been uploaded to a team channel.

    It would be very helpful to be able to search for documents that have been loaded onto a channel in teams, rather than having to scroll through them all. If a key word was known, it would save so much time! Thanks.

  3. Search setting for guest users in Microsoft Teams

    I would like you add a specific search setting that allows below:


    1. When a user performs user search, s/he is able to search users in the same tenant.

    2. At mean time, when a guest user performs a search, s/he can search only guest users in the team (or Office 365 group) which s/he is belonging to.

  4. search redirect to find message block

    For group message search wil not take you to the block where you acutally made the converastion rather than just shows the message.

    This should be working similar to messages found for a single user.

  6. Search tab

    Add an option to search for specific words during a conversation, the way Whatsapp highlights the word to show in what conversation has been used.

  8. When searching for a team, the drop down search doesn't show all teams I belong to

    I belong to hundreds of teams. We keep track of our projects on individual teams. The team name has the client name in it. I want to be able to find all projects belonging to the same client. But when I type the client's name in the search bar the teams found on the drop down box are not exhaustive. It only displays three or four results out of many it should be matching. This is the same behavior on the app, on the web-app and even in share point.

    Other that scrolling through the hundreds of teams I have,…

  9. Changing the way activity is displayed on the feed

    I believe that it would be helpful to be able to change the order in which activity is displayed on the feed. Personally I would prefer the most recent activity to be displayed towards the top as opposed to needing to scroll all the way down to see the newest information. Possibly having a menu option to toggle between the two so that people can change it to their preference.

  11. Go To New

    The Command/Ctrl + E feature is great, but I think it could be improved. I'd expect it to work more similarly to the Command + K feature in Slack.

    First, as soon as I press the shortcut, the first available options should be a list of the latest notifications, with the most recent notification already selected, so I can easily jump to it by pressing Enter.

    Once I start typing, instead of the selection defaulting to search, it should default to the top result, so I can easily jump to that selection using Enter.

  12. Finding people requires clicking on the people word at the top. Almost all users miss this step

    When searching for someone to chat with the default is to search within messages. You have to click on the people word at the top. However this isn't clear from the UI. Most users miss that they can click on the words at the top causing them to think that the user they are looking for doesn't exist. In 6 months I've been called by every new employee about this. Turn them into tabs or some other way to highlight that so that they are clickable.

  13. Legal hold on all Teams users even if no mailbox

    O365 does not allow putting a legal hold on teams accounts if they do not have a mailbox in O365. Teams channels by default get shared mailboxes created but if a Teams user does not have a mailbox we cannot put a legal hold on their messages.

    We expect to migrate our mailboxes to hybrid/cloud in 2019 but until this this is a shortcoming.

  15. The search tool for Messages, People and Files

    Teams has the search tool in the top for Messages, People and Files.

    I do not get it to work for Messages for my Team and Channels. But it does work for People and Files. Under Messages I always get "No results" even if I search with keywords that I'm 100% sure there is content.

    For my team members the search works but not for me as the owner. For other Teams I visit the search works. But for this particular Team I simply do not find where to enable the search. Do you have any advice or tips? Thanks…

  16. Now that Bing can connect with LinkedIn, offer data around what job functions/industries search on specific keywords

    Provide data and insights around who is searching (as in from what industries and/or job functions) for an advertisers set of keywords. Also offer intel on what users from a specific industry or job functions are actually searching across a specific topic (as a healthcare advertiser, this would mean across specific disease states).

  17. Username search fails sometimes

    Searching for people by their AD username sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. It's incredibly frustrating, especially if they fall into/out of the suggestions as you type more letters of their name.

    For example, there are certain people I consistently can never find by username, but I can find them by searching their last name. Other people can be found by username just fine.
