I created a OneNote Document in Teams. There's no option to search in that document. It requires to open document in OneNote online or OneNote application to be able to search.
Please Fix this issue!
Totally agree it is a must. While it is nice to be able to search on a page or a section, the entire notebook needs to be searchable. This is critically important, because without it, we are having to teach our users to not use the default viewer in teams, but to launch the notebook in the app in order to have a usable search function. Many of our users are not regular OneNote users and this is causing confusion and support work. "I searched and didn't find anything." "Did you use the Teams OneNote viewer or the app?" We want to keep people in the teams environment and make it simple, but if it doesn't support the work, it's actually adding steps. Please add the search capability to the entire notebook inside teams.
I agree with everyone else. In "Teams application" you need to be able to search all notes at once. I have the regular "onenote" from Microsoft but wanted to switch to Teams but this is absurd how you can not search all of your notes. The regular onenote you have no issue search the entire notebook.
The search function for the entire Note book is a must.
Without it, OneNote becomes almost useless!
We have a big database with lots of sections. It is designed to allow people to search the information by them-self and to teach them-self (to learn and jump from one topic to the other ( à la Wikipedia). If they can't search the whole note-book, it's useless.
Sometimes, I wonder what the developer think. This is the most useful function of Onenote and they drop it. Crazy!
This is a requirement for my company's purposes. Work arounds (such as opening the app) is a layer of complication and confusion. This is a no brainer, we should be able to search the whole notebook.

It a big issue that you can't search in Wiki or OneNote!

I made notes in OneNote in an MS Teams meeting and could not find them at all!

I'm advocating for OneNote in my unit, but just discovered that within Teams, which is becoming a hub for us, the Teams search function pulls up the section, but not the page with the hit. And then if you link to a OneNote notebook in a channel tab, the search there only searches page/section, but not the notebook. So disappointing! Please make the Teams search display the OneNote pages with the hits and please make the whole notebook searchable as well.

If you are using Internet Explorer to view your OneNote page, you should see "OPEN IN ONENOTE" near the top next to FILE, HOME, INSERT, VIEW. Once you have the notebook open in OneNote, the search field is in the upper right corner and can be used to search the ENTIRE notebook.
This is a must
This is a must, uservoice is useless by the way

If I can't search my OneNotes they're almost useless. we have so many things documented in there you have to be able to search. especially since there's no sorting of tabs, no auto-ordering, etc. it's too free-wheel. def a need!

My department is new to TEAMS and I'm a OneNote advocate. However, the ability to only search within a section, or within a page in a section is not as helpful as being able to search the entire notebook. I see this was requested over a year ago from the comments below. Is there a workaround?

That would be so great and awesome!

I agree, onenote in teams needs a search function. Tha is one of the great features in onenote.
CTRL + F only allows search of present page. Really need to be able to search "this notebook" to match functionality in OneNote

When in OneNote I can search all of my OneNote document. Even after including several of the OneNotes into a Team Project the search still only searched the Open OneNote. I would like to see the search span all the OneNotes I can access.
Also, if you use the general Teams search bar, and get OneNote results back in the 'Files' section, it only links to the section. If it linked to the actual page, then you wouldn't have to do the search again from the OneNote section itself.

Search of OneNote is available via Delve. it would be great to have the Teams search to hook into the same APIs.
Yes, I want to create a knowledge base pointing to key conversations in channel with comments and searchable keywords, and planned to do this in the Notes feature, but then the items are not searchable. This is very poor functionality
If you press ctrl + f while on one note where you can select which page it will show you a search bar. This is broken and I hope it gets fixed soon
