Add ability to search groups in Stream

Add ability to search groups in Stream

Not sure if this is a bug or a missing feature, but is the worst thing ever: Stream does not let me search for a specific group name. When I use the search box on the top, it only let me change between video, channels, and people, if I click on "Groups" the search box goes away. The only option I have in the groups is to sort, which is extremely inefficient in my company since all the office 365 groups are listed under groups. 

The workaround now is to sort by name and look for it in alphabetic order, which sometimes takes up to 20min!


How it should be:

- The search on top should also work for groups

- Not all the office 365 groups should be listed under Discover > Groups. We should rather have an option like "Activate your Office 365 stream group" - so that page doesn't get overcrowded with many empty groups that may never be used.


Please have an open text field for browsing groups.  It is so hard to find a group with the current drop down options based on date created, # videos, # channels.  


I meant a request to add an open text fields to search groups.  thanks

Would also be consistant with the remaining "Browse" experience (Videos, Channels, People).

Yes, I just noticed this yesterday during testing.


Starting to add lots of groups and it has become impossible to find anything now.

Really strange not to be able to search groups.


Also, displaying every single O365 group is horrible.

We want this to look nice and simple to find and organize videos and it looks like a mess.

I agree with all comments thus far.

Features to change the search method and make "Group" searchable
グループを選択し、動画の検索する際にキーワード検索をするとビデオからの検索となってしまいうまく検索できないので、検索方法の変更や、Microsoft Stream のグループの表示方法を変更できる機能がほしい。
If users select a group and search for a video by using keyword search, they will not be able to do the search correctly because it will be a search from videos, so we hope for features to change the search method and change the display method of Microsoft Stream groups.

Microsoft Stream のグループ検索機能を充実させてほしい

Add a way to search for groups on Stream



​​​​​​Microsoft Stream の検索の "グル-" の項目では並び替えしかできないので使いにくい。
このため Office 365 Video から移行したグループを探すのが難しく、移行したビデオの管理に支障をきたしている。
グル-" の検索でも "ビデオ" "チャンネル" "ユーザー" の項目のように、名前で検索ができるように機能を拡充してほしい。


また、並び替えで簡単に "Stream Only グループ" が表示されるように機能を追加してほしい。
並び替えの項目にグループの種類公開の状態” を追加してほしい。


It’s difficult to use the “Groups” item in the Microsoft Stream search because it can only be used to re-order the results.

It makes it difficult to find groups moved over from Office 365 Video, and makes it hard to manage the videos migrated over.


Please allow searching by name in searches for “Group”, in the same way as can be done for “Video”, “Channel” and “User” items.


Also, please add a way to show “Stream Only Groups” in the sort options.

Add “Group type” and “Publication status” items to the sorting options.

Every other tab has search...  With all the groups in existence, the groups tab is useless w/o search.

Agree. The lack of a search button for groups in Stream is a nuisance. Why? Because I want to make sure that a group I want to create does not already exist within our organization. Browsing through all stream groups, when only 8 groups per click are shown, takes me "hours".

Agree with the above.  All of our MS Teams groups have been migrated and it is virtually impossible to locate the relevant group amongst the noise.

or migration from O365 video to Stream is complete, now we have over 600 groups and can not find a specif group. Please add the ability to search for a group by name

My company just completed the migration and also have several hundred groups. It is very time consuming to search for groups. We also need the ability to search for a group by name. My team supports 7000 users, so any time saved is greatly appreciated.

We have thousands of M365 groups after we migrated to Yammer native mode. Not being able to search for a group in Stream is critical. Please add this basic functionality.
