  2. Connector search support

    Content posted by Connectors (e.g. RSS Feeds, VSTS, Jira, Yammer, etc.) should be included in search results. Having this show up in "messages" is fine/expected but right now searches for things that we know are in conversations do not show up.

    Many of us use Teams to aggregate information from multiple places and without search working for connectors, it makes the goal of making Teams the only place one needs to go more difficult.

  3. "Best match" category for search results

    Similar to how search works in Windows 10, I would like search results to show me all search results first in a "best result" tab then allow me to browse those results by using "messages", "people", and "files" tabs.

    Right now if I search on a term that is only present in a file the results window shows nothing because its defaulting to the messages tab. At the very least show the number of results on each tab.

  4. Unable to search using short name of a person

    If I have a Teams Colleague with the name Robert Vanderplank and I search for the name Rob Vanderplank the Teams Search results return no results. I have to enter his full name as Robert Vanderplank to find his contact.

    It would be very useful if Teams could search using partial names as well as the full name.

  5. search auto-populate best option

    When you search, it would be great if the search tool started to automatically populate what it thinks is the best option. This would allow you to just hit Enter if it is on the right search choice instead of being forced to use the mouse or arrows to select the right option.

  7. Finer control of user search function

    Finer control of user search function
    Search by user ID is OK, search by name is NG, etc.
    It would be good if the search function could be controlled according to the purpose.

  8. Sort completed assignments by most recent

    A 'sort by' button in Assignments (or a search bar),
    so that recently handed-in / recently returned assignments are at the top.
    Currently, the oldest assignments are at the top.

    Also, there was no obvious category for this improvement to be listed as.

  9. Search feature also searches and returns pictures that were posted

    The search function also searches pictures for the text + object and returns it in the search results. For example, I'm looking for a picture that someone uploaded... and I can go on the search bar and type "hot dog" and the search results also returns pictures of hot dogs.

  10. Search functionality for Conversation

    Team, It would be very helpful to everyone if you could provide a search option to search required conversation instead of finding it
    manually. Provide a option to change Microsoft theme.

  11. search posts i started

    Need a filter to show me all the posts I started. At times people will answer my question, forget to @ me and I miss the response. Perhaps even a filter to show posts I started without a response or reaction.

  12. search results should take you to the message within the channel/group chat

    When search results come up for chat conversations, only the single message appears. It would be better to take the user to the place within the chat that contains the positive search result, so the user can see more of the conversation.

  13. Save message with a tag

    Allow specifying a tag when saving a message, which can then be used later for easy retrieving of the message. Consequently, allow searching a saved message by a given tag.

  14. Run a search by a link/ url

    I would like the possibility to run a search in Teams by a link.
    Example run a search in a Team or Channel
    https://teams.microsoft.com/l/channel/19%3a68accb59058b4f6aa64d261f0d7bbcc8%40thread.skype/Uservoices?groupId=56bc81d8-db27-487c-8e4f-8d5ea9058663&tenantId=8d4b558f-7b2e-40ba-ad1f-e04d79e6265a maybe a s type link for search
    Add a query parameter for search by keyword
    Also a type parameter to filter by type e.g. conversation or file or one ...
    This would be great to quickly fire a Teams search from outside also to provide quick shortcuts to common search.
    Currently the filter option can be quite cumbersome and you can not save a preferred search.

  15. Allow full content search!

    Can't search notes, chats, anything. This is an incredibly basic feature.

  16. Searching for the same terms on different devices returns different results

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Teams の検索窓に同じワードを入力しても、デバイスによって検索結果が異なるため、統一してほしい。
    Searching for the same terms on different devices returns different results


    ■Description(内容):
    同じワードで検索したところ、Teams クライアント アプリと Teams Web アプリでは、検索結果に "本来ヒットするべき文言" が表示されなかったが、ワードを分割して検索すると "本来ヒットするべき文言" が表示された。
    しかし、iPhone だと、完全なワードで検索しても、ワードを分割して検索しても、"本来ヒットするべき文言" が表示された。
    When searching for a given string in Japanese, the Teams client and the Teams Web app won’t return any hits if the string is not split up with a space or hyphen, however they will return results when it is split into parts. However on iPhone, the correct results are returned whether or not the string is split up or not. Please make this behavior consistent.

  17. Get user's details directly from results in search bar without starting chat draft

    Hello,
    it would be great to implement a feature to show the user's details (like in SfB) directly from the search bar without opening a new chat draft with the user and switching to chat and back.

    Thank you for considering.
    JH

  19. Filter recent contact under the Chats>Recent Tab

    Chats>Recent Tab, it would be very efficient to have a filter to search/filter as you type the recent contacts you had a conversation with!

  20. Show entire conversation on with search results

    Currently when you search for older messages and select a result Teams will only return the one result. If it's a conversation from 3 months ago where I only know a handful of words I really am looking for some context, and showing the surrounding messages (like slack or discord) would help a ton.
