Microsoft Teams - search my own chat history

New Contributor

How could I search my own team's chat history in almost 10,000 line of chat log in these 3 months?

@Simen Ødegård I can't access to that search function, below is my version ( update on 9/6/19 

What is wrong? My IT administrator has no idea :(

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!

Check out this Euro Teams users group from this month. First speaker covers how you can do some good filtering using multiple terms and results.
i can find the old message i searched that matches my criteria: in the result list appears only the single message posted, but i can't eventually find/understand the context! (that is the very previous-next messages) in a hundreds posts chat!
The new msteams help find many thing, but the problem is it almost useless.
you must remember what you've chatted, and typing in the exact keyword.

@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 



separate messages

in staccato



the search feature becomes useless for chat.
