  1. File search of SharePoint Online document libraries added as "Cloud Storage"

    I have added separate SP libraries to MS Teams as " Add Cloud Storage". When I try to search for files that are located in one of these document libraries which are not associated to MS Teams, no items appear. The only way to search these libraries tis to go into SP online to use the search from there.

        • No way to find saved messages in chat

          You can save a message in a chat, but there's no way to easily find them after.

            • Open folder from search results

              Often we need to access a folder that a file is located within. Search only allows opening the file, not opening the folder location. At a minimum, it should display the folder location so that we can browse there manually.

              • Ability to Search within Saved Chats Only

                There is the ability to save chat conversations, however, need the ability to only search within those saved chats and not across all chats.

                • Markers on recording to identify chat messages

                  When meeting is recorded, it would be great if the chat marker is available on the recording. i.e. when clicking on chat message, it can provide a link to the recording time when the message was posted. The user can easily gain the context of the conversation if such functionality is available.

                  When a meeting is recorded, chat feels very disconnected if reviewing the meeting content after the meeting has concluded. Looking at the chat history, the messages may seem very disconnected and without context. I recently had to reach out to folks on the chat and ask them to…

                    • Make it easier to find named conversations

                      If I search for the name of a previous conversation it will not be listed, just the messages inside the conversation. It would be nice if the names of conversations where also listed if they match the search terms. If that's not possible another tab could be added next to Messages/People/Files called conversations.

                      • People search should match transliterated names

                        Searching for people should match also transliterations of national characters. E.g., not everyone has characters like "ł" or "ě" on their keyboards, it should be possible to search using "l" or "e" in their place.

                        For instance, searching for "Michal" should return people named "Michał" in results.

                        • Filter messages sent to others

                          I can see all messages that I'm tagged in or someone replied to me or..... But I can't see messages where a coworker is tagged. So when someone is out sick (for instance) I can't easily filter stuff down to see what people are asking her/him for.

                                  Hi! How do I dismiss the search results column after I get to the conversation or item I was searching for? Right now I can't just dismiss the search column after I get to the conversation. It takes up valuable screen real estate.

                                  I'm using the Microsoft Teams Windows app by the way.

                                  • Mobile App Search - Indistinguishable Results

                                    Chat messages and messages in Team threads are very difficult to distinguish between in the mobile search. This leads to poor UX. If a user (me) is not careful when deliberating between results in the early morning hours then they (me) might send a message into a public thread whilst having intended to send a message to a private chat.

                                    Please think about adjusting the prominence of the chat type or including a more distinguishable characteristic between Team messages and Chat messages within search results.

                                      please add a Go to... feature that allows you to go to a date within a chat thread rather than having to scroll up from Now to 6 months ago because that is when the conversation happened. if a user could at least GO to June 1, 2017 and start scrolling from there it would be much better.

                                      • Fast search without clicking into search input field

                                        Right now when i just activate TEAMS window and start typing, nothing happens. It would be good if default behavior in such case is contact search. So use scenario is:
                                        * user opens teams window
                                        * users start typing part of name of user, that he want to chat with
                                        * teams in search bar shows results
                                        * i can use keyboard arrows to navigate through results
                                        * by clicking enter i go directly to chat with focus in text input field

                                        • First name search should return last name, first name in last name alphabetical order

                                          In people search, First name search should return first - anyone I've texted with previously, then by last name, first name in last name alphabetical order. Right now it's returning in a seemingly random order.
