Unable to search conversation for multiple words in different messages

Copper Contributor

When I'm hunting for a thread of conversation, I often need to search for more then one keyword. However, I have learned that if these keywords are in different messages in the same group chat or private conversations the search returns no results. Since messages in teams tend to be much shorter than in email, the details of a conversation are often spread over multiple messages. In addition, emails tend to have the whole thread included so searches are very effective.


The searches in Teams should consider looking at messages that are in "close" proximity of time (hours/minutes for private/group chat or the entire thread for channels). It should then pick out the multiple lines that match ANY of the keywords.
