When you search in Teams you get results from files in SharePoint but not pages or news. What is up with that?

@Cloud-Pia valid request, previously I would recommend submitting a uservoice with Microsoft but Microsoft finally realized that portal was ignored on purpose so they are moving away and just accepting feedback now. What you really need to do to make your voice heard at Microsoft, get in touch with your TAM (Technical Account Manager) or your Customer Engineer or whatever Microsoft called them nowadays and submit a DCR (Design Change Request), this will open a ticket for you with Microsoft and will be assigned to a support engineer that will continue to follow up with you and keep you posted till the Teams product managers provide a feedback with either yes they are moving with your request or no.

Hello @AwsAyad Not sure what you mean by your comment that Uservoice was "ignored on purpose;" my experience has been that votes of the users from the previous Uservoice site - and now the new Feedback Portal - factored greatly into where Teams Engineering focused their limited resources (along with many other factors, of course). We highly encourage users to go to the Feedback Portal to enter new requests or vote on the ones that are already there.

@AwsAyad it's a numbers game, if thousands of people upvote your idea it gets more attention, and might get built at some point. Lots of features have been added to the product due to Uservoice/Feedback portal comments, as you can see when you look at the top requested features.
The Teams product group and leadership do review the most popular ideas regularly, I've even heard of Satya Nadella getting involved when a popular feature wasn't on the development timeline.

@Steven Collier @AwsAyad @Therese_Solimeno Thanks for dropping a note. Most of the time when I add something here, old uservoice or other places it just... <crickets> I have added it to the feedback hub. It's somewhat exhausting to be a SharePoint admin/lover because it always feels like such an afterthought most of the time.
