  1. Retrieve only deleted chat messages by Content Search in Microsoft Teams

    Contents search allows us to find all chats, however this function does not allow to search only deleted chats.
    I need to check the only deleted chats, so the current behavior annoys me to check which ones were deleted or not.
    I request you the search function is available to specifically find the deleted chats in Teams.

  2. Filter search results by private chat

    When filtering search results it's possible to filter by Team, Channel, and From. It would be great to have the option to filter my search results to all private chats.

  5. Display all assignments

    When a student attempts to view their assignments they should be able to view all of them. Due to the fact that they are separate the student could have a lot of classes meaning they may have to go through each one individually. So there should be a list of all assignments starting with the one that's due first

  6. We want to be able to use department names and furigana for searching users in Microsoft Teams search

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams 内の検索にて、部署名やフリガナを利用したユーザー検索をできるようにしたい
    We want to be able to use department names and furigana for searching users in Microsoft Teams search


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams を利用していますが、検索ボックスにユーザーの部署名やフリガナを入れても、該当のユーザーが検索結果に表示されません。
    Skype for Business ではユーザーの部署名やフリガナを入れた場合にユーザー検索が可能であったため、同様の機能を Microsoft Teams でも実装希望です。​
    We are using Microsoft Teams, but even if we enter the user's department name and furigana, that user does not get displayed in the search results.
    As user search can be done in Skype for Business even when the user's department name and furigana is used, we hope that the same feature can be implemented in Microsoft Teams.

  7. Create a search function for past chats and past files

    I think it would be a good idea to add a search function for the past chats and past files. This would enhance efficiency significantly.

  8. 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!

  10. Search button scoped to the current active screen

    Everywhere you go in Teams, you should have a search button that automatically filters to the scope of the active screen. Then, whent he search is executed, an option to widen the search to beyond the initial scope.

    So in summary:
    1. Search command bar continues as it does today
    2. New Search button at the bottom of the conversation tab which pre-filters the search results to just that channel
    3. New Search button at the top of Files in the Files tab to search just that location
    4. New Search button at the bottom of the chat window to…

  12. 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…

  13. Search within each chat / conversation

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

  14. Search for previous conversation full listing

    It would be better if the search of conversation would show the full conversation at the point of time instead of just showing that specific line of search. We would need to scroll way back again just to see the subsequent reply.

  15. Function to customize the user search in Teams

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams ユーザー検索をカスタマイズする機能
    Function to customize the user search in Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Microsoft Teams ではユーザー検索の際に、"Exchange アドレス帳ポリシーを利用したユーザー検索制限" しか検索を制限する機能がなく誰でも検索できてしまう。ユーザーにより、検索可能な範囲を詳細に設定できる機能(特定ユーザーのみ検索可能等の検索範囲を制限するなどの調整)の実装を希望します。

    Currently when searching for users in Teams, instead of the search function “Using Exchange address book policies to limit user search”, you can search for anyone. We would like a function where the scope of searching that is possible can be set in detail for different users (restrictions such as only specific users being able to search).

  17. Allow search for users based on organisation or role as Skype does.

    Allow search for users based on organisation or role as Skype does.

    Skype allows you to search for words associated with users, this is very useful for multiple members in large organisations. This is not available in Teams in any way as of yet and this is big oversight which should be added in!

  19. Display the department name when adding a member

    There is not enough information when adding a member to the team.
    The title is displayed, but the department name is not displayed.
    When searching, it is inconvenient.
    I hope that the department name is also displayed.

  20. Implement other Boolean operators than AND for Teams search

    I would like you to implement more Boolean operators such as OR to use search in Teams. Currently, we can use AND operator only.
