  1. Filtering by Team does not show all the channels

    Recent updates to the MicrosoftTeams client make finding a channel in a Team difficult if you know the name of the Team but not the channel.

    In the latest Teams client update, you changed the way users search/filter on Teams and channels. It makes it EXTREMELY difficult to find or browse a channel in a Team.

    The process now for finding a channel in Teams is as follows:
    1) Filter on Team (it only Shows the General Channel)
    2) Click on the ellipses "..."
    3) Click on "Manage Team"
    4) Click on "Channels"
    5) Click on the Channel...

    That's FIVE…

  3. Searching for messages across all teams returns "No matches found."

    If you try to search via the Global Search bar for a specific text string, which appeared in a message which was posted in one of the teams you are a member of, it returns "No matches found." It only returns the right result, when I manually go into "More filters" and specify in which team the message was originally posted. The problem is: I am a member of many teams and often I can't remember, in which team the message was posted. I would expect the global search to search for messages across all the teams I am a…

  6. Search only searches for matching messages, but there is no way to see nearby messages in timeline.

    When using search in chat history, the search only shows specific messages that match the search, but most of the time you are looking for messages that led up to or followed the message 'hit'. There is no workable way from chat search to see this other context, you have to look at date & time of hits and then scroll (forever) to the appropriate context. If either (a) you could click the time on the message and it took you to the message in the timeline, or (b) you could immediately see surrounding messages, it would be better. I…

  7. Search does not search SharePoint site pages

    The Microsoft Teams UI search functionality does not seem to search site pages created on the SharePoint sites associated with the teams. However, it does search, according to the file type menu, Office files (Excel, PowerPoint, Word), images, text files and PDFs. Given that SharePoint, itself, does search site pages, it seems a bug that the Teams UI does not provide this.

  8. Searching messages for a known IP address returns zero hits

    I'd like to search messages for a specific IP address. I already have some messages containing the text 10.99.20.1

    If I search for "10." then I get some hits,

    but if I search for "10.9" I get no hits.

    How can I search for IP addresses? Or numeric values in general?

  9. Teams will send chat messages to mailboxes that don't have Teams

    The issue is that users in our tenant are able search for and send Teams chat messages to mailboxes and users that don't have Teams. This includes shared mailboxes and users with Exchange only license. (O1) Neither of those have the ability to log into Teams.

  11. [Bug] auto attendant dial by name search

    Nature of the bug seems to be that the dbn system converts the keypad numbers to alphabetical names, and if the alphabetical names match up to first three letters, then multiple names are correctly outputted as options for the caller to select. However if the keypad numbers for the names are the same, but the alphabetical names are not, then the name with the highest alphabetized precedence is listed, and any other lower alphabetized name is not. This applies to first or last names, same problem with both. Instead what the system should be doing is also checking if the…

  12. Address book policy take upto 30 days to be refreshed

    Currently, Address book policy take up to 30 days to be refreshed to the existing users which don't meet most of the customer requirement. I request Microsoft to either reduce this time period to the acceptable amount or to provide a way to apply the same to the existing user.

  13. User not appearing when name is searched in Teams, but appear in Chat and Team groups

    We still have users working with S4B for the time being. Most have adopted Teams completely and no longer rely on S4B. I have noticed that in the Teams search field at the top, that some users do not appear unless their email address is entered, their first last or even full name doesn't find them. They are showing in various Teams groups when you Manage Team, and their name appears when added to the contacts in Chat as well. Is this a design problem or a domain issue?
