@LongNX nullUse the search feature and filter appropriately?

If you type a search term in the search bar (on top in the middle), the search results and filter options should show up on the left side.
If for some reason the search does not work... I suggest you bug your IT admin again!

@Long Nguyễn Xuân apart from this, even if you have a match, it's also rather difficult to scroll back months to get the context for your search result.
Chat search only gives you the single matching message instead of scrolling back to the point in time of the chat.
If you're dealing with folks
the search feature becomes useless for chat.

If you still have issues, taking the date of the single message you've found + the other participant in the chat, theres this workaround that gives you the entire days worth of results
But my search in the desktop client now has a button that scrolls me back to the location in the chat. This is an update from the last few months.

@Stefan Hanrath Searching UI is very broken. Took me a while to figure out a solution that would scroll the chat window up to get the context. Figured I'd post my workaround for 1.5.00.8070 (64-bit), as I do remember being able to do this directly.
Type in top bar or ctrl-F, get a list of results.
Click on Go to Message (which very unhelpfully gives you no context).
Hover over message to get reaction popup, and dots menu -> choose Pin.
Click on Conversation with <person/group> at the top, which brings you to present day chats (again, not helpful).
Now you have a top banner with your pinned message, and clicking that scrolls you up.

@sbaitz100 MS has finally been improving in this area thou. The search bar works fairly well, and if not or single search, you can hit office.com and search there for everything in one search, it's fairly slick. Not sure if you are still on old search UI/UX or not in Teams, should be the new one at this point, but it was pretty quick in Outlook, not a bunch of back and forth. The office.com search is next closest thing IMO since it stays up etc. while you nav teams via the links.
