  1. double-quoted string search function

    I'd like to search with following keywords
    yammer teams
    By doing it, the search result will show the posts including both yammer and teams

    But to search with Yammer[sp]Teams, many search engine provides such function by letting user by double quoting the search keywords.
    I'd like you to provide such function.

  2. 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.

  4. I want to be able to select whether to apply the Exchange address book policy on a domain basis

    Since it is controlled by domain, I want the administrator to be able to set whether to apply the Exchange address book policy.

  5. Please implement a feature that can display and output a list of past thread titles using Team, channel, thread subject, and sender paramete

    ■Title(件名):
    Teamsの検索条件として引数でTeam、チャネル、スレッド件名、発信者がで過去のスレッドタイトルの一覧を表示・出力できる機能を実装していほしい。
    Please implement a feature that can display and output a list of past thread titles using Team, channel, thread subject, and sender parameters as Teams search conditions


    ■Description(内容):
    過去の会話を検索するとチャットや、他のチャネルでの記録も検索されて、ピンポイントで該当の会話にたどり着けないため、Teamsの検索条件として引数でTeam、チャネル、スレッド件名、発信者がで過去のスレッドタイトルの一覧を表示・出力できる機能を実装していほしい。
    When a search is done on past conversations, records of chat and other channels are searched as well, which makes it hard to find the exact conversation. Thus we hope that a feature that can display and output a list of past thread titles using Team, channel, thread subject, and sender parameters as Teams search conditions will be implemented.

  6. Search using a full email address for users not included in Address Book Policy (APB)

    アドレス帳ポリシー(ABP)適用範囲外のユーザーの検索結果について
    Search using a full email address for users not included in Address Book Policy (APB)


    ■Description(内容):
    以前は、アドレス帳ポリシー(ABP)適用範囲外のユーザーは、フルアドレス入力することで、検索およびチャット・チーム追加などが可能であったが、現在は動作が変更され、フルアドレス入力での検索ができなくなっている。
    自テナントでは、フルアドレス入力での検索が必要なため、動作が変更となったことに非常に不便を感じています。
    今後、アドレス帳ポリシー(ABP) の設定または、Teams 管理センターなどでフルアドレス入力での検索のオン・オフを切り替えられる機能の実装を希望します。
    In the past, users that were not included in the Address Book Policy (APB) could input a full email address for searching and adding chats/teams, but that has now been changed; users cannot enter a full email address to do searching anymore.
    In our tenant, we need to enter a full email address for searching, so we feel very inconvenienced by this change.
    Thus we hope that a feature to enable/disable full email address…

  8. There is no way to differenciate between posted messages, edited messages, deleted messages, deleted files etc when doing a contents search

    If contents search is used to look for chat messages, everything is shown and there is no way to differenciate between posted messages, edited messages, deleted messages, deleted files etc.

    Thus I hope a way to to differenciate and export the search results displayed will be implemented.

  9. User search suggestions extension

    Search for users to see suggestions.
    If you only know your last name, you want to find that user from the candidate.
    However, this feature only displays 20 people.
    If there are many candidates, they will be missed and cannot be contacted.
    I'd like to see an extension to show more than 20 users.

  10. 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.

  11. include more Active directory information

    include active directory information in the search.
    like location, so if I type a city it will show all the members in that city.
    also include the other fields of information from active directory in the contact space, like cell phone numbers

  12. Enable eDiscovery to search chats and files which have been edited or deleted

    We currently cannot audit chats and files which have been deleted or edited in Microsoft Teams unless we enable the retention policy. It would be great if we could use eDiscovery function to search them without using the retention policy.

  14. Search text within in-line chat image

    When images with text in them are posted to a channel or thread within a channel it would be nice if they could be indexed and thus searchable.

    Images are currently searchable if they are added as files within a MS teams channel, just not if they are pasted in as in-line images.

  15. Search email from Teams

    I would like to search email(outlook) from Teams. Maybe as another search results tab like "files" or "People."
    As we transition away from email I regularly encounter situations where I have to refer to an old email or deal with the occasional colleague who still emails information. Being able to search on that info in one place, Teams, would be awesome.

  17. After search for a document in teams, show the folder it lives in and allow direct access to its link

    After search, for files, in Teams, one can see the list of results, but 1 a) one can not find out where (in which team/channel/folder) the found document lives.
    b) one can not get a URL link to the document (and since it is not possible to see where the document lives, can't even get it indirectly.

    Currently the workaround it so open the document, save as, and from save as see where it is proposed to be saved.

    Often we search because we need to tell someone else where to find the information and the above fixes will help…

  18. 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

  19. filter

    Moving over to Teams from the Conversation History in Skype I have lost the ability to search my chat history my date. I see the capability of filtering based on date, but you can't enter a specific date. The filter option also seems to require you searching for something first.

    I would like to see the search be modified to include an option to search by date, or the filter option be available without searching for something first.
