    Our real world staffing focus is very fluid. Not just moving people, but changing WHAT the groups are and what they are focused on. This means we have to re-org Teams every 9-12 months. Sometimes a bit more often.

    We've been asking for this feature for about 3 years now. The last time Microsoft has even bothered to respond here (or in https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/31629481-move-a-wiki-page-to-a-different-channel) was 2 YEARS 4 MONTHS AGO.

    This is clearly very low on Microsoft's priority list, if it is on it at all.

    We reorganize our actual real-world teams yearly, and we try to keep Microsoft Teams matching how we are really organized. So that means moving things around. Yearly. COME ON MICROSOFT -- if I could advise my superiors to abandon your product, I would, just for this one HUGE time waster.

    It's not difficult to do in a real wiki or in other groupware systems... why do you keep ignoring this?

    Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.

    If you are still having issues, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with device info and detailed repro steps to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks all!

    Don't drop the wiki... BUT...

    1. Rename it to "Pages." It's just a set of editable pages with a few minor formatting options thrown in. (We happen to use this heavily but it is NOT a wiki.)

    2. Give the owners of each Team or Channel the option of easily removing this tab. As seen below, there are organizations that already have real wikis (or at least are using SharePoint... also NOT a wiki !!) and they don't want colleagues putting stuff here instead.

    3. How about giving us easy integration with a REAL WIKI? One that is searchable, easily editable, supports full markup, and MOST IMPORTANTLY.... the ability to write dangling links!

    REAL Wikis are super easy to edit and super easy to move content around. And most importantly you can write a dangling link in the page you're editing, then you can go back later, click on that link, and create the page it points to.

    This is really a NECESSARY addition.

    Generally, when you are looking for information, the answers are not within a single chat: they're distributed across several replies in the chat stream.

    The way it is done now (showing ONLY the message found and NO context) is WORSE than a missing feature... it is the equivalent of taunting the user! You don't want to do that!

    "Ha ha, I found a specific message that contains what you're searching for, but it's several months old and you'll just have to try to scroll through hundreds of messages and try to find the place in the message stream where I'm pointing to!"

    I know this isn't Microsoft's intent.

    But it sure FEELS that way every time I forget and try to search for something, only to have the software taunt me that IT "knows" where my information is but that I don't.

    Feature originally shared August 2017. It is October 2020. Microsoft: perhaps I was wrong?
    Maybe you DO intend to taunt us, your users? There's not even an "under consideration" tag on this!

    There are over 200 different user ideas for search... maybe more than 300 (I'm just estimating on the basis of the number of pages available via this web interface, plus a rough calculation of the number of duplicate requests).

    About 2/3 of these stories can be addressed all at the same time with an Advanced Search facility.

    * One person wants searches across ALL content (files, wiki, posts, etc) but only in a single Channel.

    * One person wants searches ONLY in the code snippets of posts, but across all channels in a single Team.

    * Another person wants the same thing but across all teams, but not other chats.

    * Yet another wants the same thing but only in a single chat with a single person.

    Microsoft is going to run out of key combinations or places to put screen controls if they try to do all of these everywhere for everybody.

    Whereas they can put the most popular items quickly accessible, and for everything else, an "Advanced Search" button... which takes the user to a web dialog (or popup) with all sorts of filters and search options. Microsoft can't hope to provide every combination of search criteria with a direct "one off" item, but they CAN provide MILLIONS of combinations with a set of advanced search controls.

    I believe the reason why my idea has so few votes is that the typical user wants "just the one or two things they need." They're asking very specifically and very concretely. They don't care what other users may want or need, they want THEIR feature and they want it NOW.

    On the other hand, even if Microsoft had the power to give everyone their individual features, they'd start getting complaints that the UI is "too cluttered." Users not only want THEIR feature(s), but they also DO NOT want to see everyone else's feature that they aren't using.

    I think what many of these users want is ACTUALLY an advanced search feature, with either "sticky" settings, or else a way they can SAVE *groups* of settings.

    Please strongly consider this as a good way of solving the problem of 200-300 feature requests.
