  1. meeting search

    Context Aware Search Across All Areas of Teams
    It would be really helpful if we could search specific places in teams independently. i.e. "search w/in conversation" "search meeting names" "search all meeting notes" With a company the size of the one I work for, getting results from all conversations, all channels, is overwhelming and unhelpful, and having to go to outlook and find a meeting and then carry that over to scroll backwards thru meetings is even more cumbersome than it sounds typing.

  2. Retrieve only deleted chat messages by Content Search in Microsoft Teams

    Contents search allows us to find all chats, however this function does not allow to search only deleted chats.
    I need to check the only deleted chats, so the current behavior annoys me to check which ones were deleted or not.
    I request you the search function is available to specifically find the deleted chats in Teams.

  3. private teams should have option to be hidden from search or not

    Users can not search for private rooms to ask for membership approval. They can search for public teams but those can not be member approved by owners.
    We would like to have an option when creating private team whether it is hidden from search or not so users could easily find us and ask for membership.

  4. Quick Search for Teams and Channels

    Ability to do a quick search for Teams you are already joined and also for channels. Pls make just a quick text box in the upper part of the teams and channels panel on the left side. Not a big deal for you, but a big deal for us!

  5. Search on recent

    It would be very useful to be able to search by person and see any recent conversations with them in the recent area.

    At the moment the recent tab doesn't filter nor is it possible to search, which means its very hard to find any recent chat involving the contact.

  8. Improve the message search option

    You should be able to search key words in an specific channel or conversation with someone.
    Currently the search bar on the top will search for everything in every channel/conversation, which some times its not useful. You should be able to filter out the search better

  9. Allow search by date, showing all relevant messages and uploaded files on that date

    A great way to chunk information out is by chronological order. Teams is so useful but feels like a nonstop stream of information. Regular keyword searching is helpful, but being able to go back through our days and weeks and see defined lines (possibly a vertical layout of the flow, with dotted lines to separate days?).

  11. When searching for a team, the drop down search doesn't show all teams I belong to

    I belong to hundreds of teams. We keep track of our projects on individual teams. The team name has the client name in it. I want to be able to find all projects belonging to the same client. But when I type the client's name in the search bar the teams found on the drop down box are not exhaustive. It only displays three or four results out of many it should be matching. This is the same behavior on the app, on the web-app and even in share point.

    Other that scrolling through the hundreds of teams I have,…

  12. Changing the way activity is displayed on the feed

    I believe that it would be helpful to be able to change the order in which activity is displayed on the feed. Personally I would prefer the most recent activity to be displayed towards the top as opposed to needing to scroll all the way down to see the newest information. Possibly having a menu option to toggle between the two so that people can change it to their preference.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Go To New

    The Command/Ctrl + E feature is great, but I think it could be improved. I'd expect it to work more similarly to the Command + K feature in Slack.

    First, as soon as I press the shortcut, the first available options should be a list of the latest notifications, with the most recent notification already selected, so I can easily jump to it by pressing Enter.

    Once I start typing, instead of the selection defaulting to search, it should default to the top result, so I can easily jump to that selection using Enter.

  17. Teams does not find files in folders

    When I search for a file, Teams finds the files that are stored at the root level, but not the files that are inside folders.

  18. Legal hold on all Teams users even if no mailbox

    O365 does not allow putting a legal hold on teams accounts if they do not have a mailbox in O365. Teams channels by default get shared mailboxes created but if a Teams user does not have a mailbox we cannot put a legal hold on their messages.

    We expect to migrate our mailboxes to hybrid/cloud in 2019 but until this this is a shortcoming.
