So much #3 and #5! I am a more recent Teams adopter, and I just assumed that search results would be contextual like every other chat product out there. I lost tons of time trying to figure out what I was doing wrong, attempting to scroll up through 8 months of daily chats until that froze, and even contacting support (more than a dozen messages exchanged with the rep over two weeks before he was able to tell me that this is "by design"). All I needed to know was some time-sensitive info discussed in a previous chat! Please fix!
