  2. Dismiss search results after selecting an item

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. "go to"

    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.

  5. 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

  7. When pressing Alt + E

    When pressing Alt + E to search for college. On direct hit so would it be nice to get that user first so I can just press enter. Now "Search (More)" is appearing first so I have to arrow down to the college I wanted to chat with.

  8. Kick your development team **********

    How is it you can release a commercial product that has wiki functionality and yet your search does not cover wiki pages properly.

    Utterly stupid or magnificently arrogant.

    Pick one.

  9. 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)

  10. Sorting by names like MS outlook will help in identifying messages by person in Chat section

    Like mails, sorting by names of persons in Chat section will help identifying messages quickly.

  11. comtence

    Hi,
    Just a quick suggestion as we have decided to go all-in on Teams in my company, which means leaving our SharePoint Intranet platform as well.

    I was just considering if, Microsoft is planning to visualize competences on user profiles better in teams than it is today - it would be great. I was just thinking about a situation where I receive a call and in a hurry must find a ressource with this competence

    Today:
    Search for user in team > I see basic information like address; phone number, etc. No competences.

    If Microsoft is planning to use Teams…

  12. Add search engine in office 365

    For example when the conversation is very long or there is many files in some teams, it would be very usefull to have search engine to find the thing you want to find.

  13. Copy To Function Searching

    When moving a file or folder location from team structure to team structure or sharepoint to sharepoint allow for Searching in the side bar, and sort teams by number/name instead of just randomly.

    See the attached photo.

  14. Highlight search results in the MS Teams file viewer

    The search function in Teams is great, but I would like Teams to highlight search results not only in chats or conversations but also in the files tab. Currently, when searching for a term, it will find all files (docx, pdf, etc...) that include this term somewhere in the file, but one has to open each file manually in its application and use CRTL+F to actually find the term within the file.

    It would be great to have all mentions of the search term highlighted in the file viewer directly in teams. Possibly with a little bar, allowing to jump…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. User search by SMTP address when accessing externally. View external users as user names.

    Enable search for external users by SMTP address in Teams for the external access. Currently, you have to search external users by UPN for the external access.

    Also, I would like to view external users to be user names (or specifying optional names). Currently, you can see external users as UPN so that you cannot identify user name when starting chat with external users.

  19. Go to secific time in message history after search

    Go to a specific time in message history after having search a string in messages.
    Sometimes only the date of the message is displayed without the context of the message (previous messages)

  20. Search should include special characters

    Searching for a person called "René", I can't just type "Rene" - it has to be "René". This works in other Office products, but not Teams.

    So, please make search a little smarter on that point.
