    Agreed...by extension, any app should be able to be referenced this way quickly. e.g. if I type the following in Conversations
    @[Team Name] see ##[MS App e.g. "OneNote" notes on ##[specific topic text]
    where ## is hash which tells the system to query a particular app or search for data in the system.

    OR make it even more user friendly using indexing which already exists to provide data across the Teams no matter where it's stored

    @[Team Name] see ##["specific topic text"]

    For the above, when the person types in ##["specific topic text"] in Conversations, the system shows 1-3 visuals from what it thinks the user is trying to reference (e.g. similar to the hoverovers in Office 365) and then they can pick the one they were referring to.

    Over time the Machine Learning engine in Teams will be able to present search results.

    Incorporate Bing search engine code or similar code to allow the user to benefit from searching capabilities without it being so technical to reference items. Making it more like using Search Engines will drive adoption by making the tool more useful.

    In other words, get away from driving people having to learn standards for where documents / content go to reference data and drive it more to how a mind really thinks.
