  1. 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…

  3. Search within each chat / conversation

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  7. #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.

  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!

  9. Include team private chat title in search

    When I've renamed a teams group chat I am not able to find the chat with search if I search on the group title. Searching on words in the chat does work, but I would like to search on the group chat title/name.

  10. Fix search functionality

    Search is quite buggy:


    • disabled users are still searchable (even though their account have no license assigned)

    • not all people with same name are displayed in the result list

    • search in desktop version shows different results than in web version

    Please fix this, it's really hard to work without working search functionality.

    Thank you,

  11. see all teams

    Join or Create a Team should display all existing Teams in the organization. Currently the Join or Create option only allows Create. The Search field does not display teams not already in my Favourites list that I know exist. Rather it asks if I want to create a new team with the name of the existing team rather than offering me an opportunity to join the existing team.

  12. 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.

  14. Add search on every chat session not just a common one

    Add search on every chat session not just a common one. Its really hard to search globally. Adding a search option under each chat session would help a lot.

  15. Prevent specific guest accounts appearing when searching for people in Teams chats etc.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のチャットなどで、メンバー検索の際に特定のゲスト アカウントの表示が不可となるようにしたい。
    Prevent specific guest accounts appearing when searching for people in Teams chats etc.


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の動作では、Microsoft Teams のチャットなどで、メンバー検索をするとゲスト アカウントも検索対象となっております。
    ゲスト アカウントによっては、全従業員から検索不可となったほうが良いケースもあるため、メンバー検索の際に特定のゲスト アカウントの表示が不可となるような機能を希望します。

    Currently in Teams chats etc., searching for people also returns guest users.
    There are cases where we would rather prevent certain guest users from being searchable by employees, so please make it possible to prevent specified guest accounts from appearing in search results.

  17. I want to search a file provided in private chat

    Currently, I cannot search a file provided in private chat.
    The search area seems only "Teams" and excepted private chat.
    We sometimes upload files through both Team and private chat, so please expand the search area of Teams APP to private chat files.

  18. 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.

  20. Search within Teams needs improving

    The ability to search in Teams for a Public team is only successful if you type the first letters of the name of the Team. If I search for a Team using a word or letters that are in the latter part of the name if does not work e.g. we have lots of Public Teams starting with i3 - POD - <specific name>. I can search using i3, but if i just type POD into search it does not work.
