  1. Default to searching for people

    The search is kind of cumbersome. I would like it to automatically include contacts when I search, that's only what I use the search for. But currently it defaults to searching messages. It should default to searching contacts like the Skype for Business Search does.

  2. 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.

  4. It would be helpful to be able to search Subject Lines or # identified words

    It would be helpful to be able to search by Subject Line or to be able to mark key words with a # to search later. When I search for #, any words that I have marked with # would show up.

  5. 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,…

  6. Run a search by a link/ url

    I would like the possibility to run a search in Teams by a link.
    Example run a search in a Team or Channel
    https://teams.microsoft.com/l/channel/19%3a68accb59058b4f6aa64d261f0d7bbcc8%40thread.skype/Uservoices?groupId=56bc81d8-db27-487c-8e4f-8d5ea9058663&tenantId=8d4b558f-7b2e-40ba-ad1f-e04d79e6265a maybe a s type link for search
    Add a query parameter for search by keyword
    Also a type parameter to filter by type e.g. conversation or file or one ...
    This would be great to quickly fire a Teams search from outside also to provide quick shortcuts to common search.
    Currently the filter option can be quite cumbersome and you can not save a preferred search.

  7. Search for meeting by name

    When you use the top search bar in teams, it doesn't appear to return the names of meetings or of the recordings associated with them. That makes it really difficult to find a previous meeting on a specific topic.

  8. improved search functions.

    searching channel specific wiki and file contents for key words does not appear to be implemented. An advanced search dialogue would be appreciated.

  9. #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!

  11. Recover library files searcher on SharePoint site from Teams disappeared with the last actualization.

    Now to search by words in Teams we need to go to the SharePoint page. It’s not logical, since, if the two applications (SharePoint and Teams) are integrated it's not natural you have to use both. Moreover, the general search bar that appears at the top of the SharePoint page is not as useful as it doesn’t specifically search for words within the library documents, but does it in all Teams Pages.

  12. #Hashtags - for better search capabilities

    Hi.
    I'm often getting cunfused by the many teams I'm part of, when trying to find a document. To be able to add a #hashtag on documents, would make them easier to find. In addition, it would be possible to look.up all documents related to one "topic" (ex. a project), quick and easy.

  13. Search for anything over all teams (also public team I'm not member)

    I'd like to find anything I'm looking for even I'm not a member of a public team. Maybe there should be a possibility do decide if I like to search only within teams I'm member or teams I'm member and all public teams.

  14. Enable to output content search log for each channel

    When outputting a log from content search, the channel can not be specified and it becomes a team unit.
    Since it is a huge amount of information to output only the log of a specific channel, I want you to be able to specify for each channel you want to output.

  15. Highlight the searched words on the right panel

    When we run a search on Teams, the search results displayed under the "Messages" tab will have the searched words highlighted and this is great.

    However, if we then click on the search result we were looking for, the relevant section or words of the selected result isn't highlighted on the panel on the right side, it just loads the discussion at its end. We have to scroll up and look for what we need manually to find the section/words we were looking for.

    It would be a great improvement for the Search feature to highlight directly in the right…

  17. Search within each chat / conversation

    Search should be enabled within each chat/conversation instead of a single generalized search.

  19. I want to output content-search data to CSV.

    Currently, content-search has only a way to output to a PST file.
    This is very inconvenient to use data.
    We request the implementation of the function to output content-search as CSV data.

  20. Disable app suggestions in search bar

    I have literally never wanted to access/add/interact with OpsGenie, Informacast, App Studio, or any of the apps that appear in the search suggestions. What's worse, someone decided that app suggestions should float to the top of search results, which actively obstructs results I'm actually interested in.

    Please provide an option to turn this off!
