  1. Team search in iOS

    I belong to many teams. The search field doesn’t let me type in a name and go to them. It only searches on conversations and people. I just want to go to the Team site itself!

  3. Use search to quickly jump to a tab

    Similar to how you can user the search bar to quickly jump to a specific Team or Channel, it would be great to show Tab names as well. Of course it would need to show you which team and channel that tab belongs to. If you select that item it quickly takes you directly to that tab.

  4. Make the bookmark display only the bookmarked part of the conversation

    Bookmarks would be a whole lot more powerful when it would only display the bookmarked conversation - should not be too difficult, right?

    (the current setting only 'jumps' back in the timeline with all the other conversations on display, too - which isn't helpful when trying to focus only on my bookmarked conversation, really)

  5. Search engine should search on team name, like desktop version

    Somehow when you search for a team name in the iPad version, there is no results, or the wrong. I expect to get the team names.

  6. Exclude retired users from the Teams search result

    Teams user search feature finds users who retired and removed from AAD, because it looks up them through cache. It’s inconvenient that we have to clear those caches from Teams client each time, so I would like you to improve the search feature to set aside users who are not existed in AAD.

  8. Allow end users to add new external users mail address from Chat

    Currently, only registered external users in AAD are searchable in Teams. So, administrators need to register external users contact data into Azure AD in advance.
    This is a time-consuming process, so it would be great if end users themselves could register external users via Teams.

  9. Search Office 365 files with only Microsoft Teams

    It would be nice to have a feature that can search O365 files such as Outlook/SharePoint Online/Microsoft Teams files and launch each app by one click with only Microsoft Teams.

  10. People search don't use middle initial or punctuation

    When searching for people don't use middle initial as part of your matching criteria. Most people don't know what other people's middle initials are. Searching on "Jane Doe" should find "Jane X. Doe" or any other combination of Jane Doe with middle initials or none. Currently I get no matches at all.

    Additionally within our company some folks have a middle initial with a period and others don't. If I do know a middle initial it should match with or without the period. For example "Jane X. Doe" should match "Jane X Doe".

  11. 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.

  12. View my full activity history

    GDPR gives Europeans a right to ask for all the saved personal information and it seems to be the only way to get to view my personal activity history. Seriously, why we can't properly view our own activity history, it only shows few lines and doesn't offer option to search farther away? Should have a date filter as well to search for specific dates and full text search. I want full access to my own self written data.

  13. Improve the behavior which shows duplicated user name in the reach result

    Teams search result shows two duplicated user names when searching with full email address of the user via the search or type a command box in Teams. Either of them redirects me to the correct chat page, but I would like you to fix this behavior to show only one suggestion.

  14. Allow search for teams by partial names regardless of position

    When joining a new team you can search for a partial team name if it begins with the search term. It would be helpful in finding a Team if I could search for a partial name regardless of where the search term appears in the name.

  15. When searching guest users

    I would like you to add a feature that sets each guest user to be shown or hidden in the search result when searching guest users registered in Office 365.

  17. Make search filters icon more accessible

    Once you hit enter on a search, a filter icon appears on the search results tab. That filter icon exposes many filtering parameters but they are not in an intuitive/visible spot. Instead of hiding that beautiful search feature, put it on the right side of the search bar so that people can find it easily. Also, most people think that the search feature does not have filters at all. This will solve a lot of the results in the "search ideas" here

  18. Better search function

    Search should find everything. I added a folder named Label printer. With a file with Label in it's name. And a note on the Wiki that we have a Label printer. I want that search for "Label" should find all of these three...

  19. Team channel people search

    Instead of 2 search buttons that don’t work well, one search button that shows any match for people, Teams, channels? I hate that searching for a channel, if it isn’t completely spelled properly, it doesn’t show. So then you search thru all teams, point and click to open more than 5 channels, which really, really gets old...hunting for the channel.

    And, I’d really like to know who is on a team or a channel when I’m about to send a message.

  20. Improved Help Search - "Tell me what you want to do"

    In Word, PowerPoint, etc., a handy "Tell me what you want to do" help/learning feature is always available at the top and it's easily searchable. I would have assumed the Command box in Teams could've handled that task, but it just directs to the main application Help. And this Help section doesn't even have a text search...! How is Help so unhelpful? To get searchable Teams help, one must visit the Help Center online (linked below). At the very least, maybe Teams application should redirect online users there. Many users give up when faced with all these seemingly small, but…
