As users of Microsoft Search in Bing, you are already familiar with finding Teams and Yammer conversations via the Conversations vertical. We are pleased to inform that the Conversations vertical experience in Microsoft Search in Bing will be enhanced with Email messages. Going forward the Conversations vertical will contain Teams conversations and Email Messages. We expect that this feature will bring additional value to Microsoft Search in Bing experience for the users in your organization and make it more complete search experience.
Search results from Yammer, that is currently supported within the Conversations vertical in Microsoft Search in Bing, will appear in its own vertical. A future enhancement on the Yammer vertical will bring in a richer search experience.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 68779.
Microsoft Search: Conversation search in Microsoft search in Bing, Office.com and SharePoint
Conversation search will allow you to find relevant Microsoft Teams, and Outlook conversations when searching in Microsoft search in Bing, SharePoint and Office.com.
When this will happen
We will begin rolling out in mid-January and expect to complete by mid-March.
During the rollout process, some users in your organization may see the new experience ahead of others.
How this will affect your organization
Once available, Email messages will now be returned under the Conversations vertical when using Microsoft Search in Bing. Additionally, Yammer results will be displayed under the new Yammer vertical.
Note: search results are personalized to the user and users will have access to the information they already have access to in Teams, Outlook and Yammer.
What you need to do to prepare
You do not need to do any additional preparation for this feature. You may update your training and documentation as appropriate.
