Seach in TFS Team Room
Enable search in Team Room on www.visualstudio.com, or attach the message in Team Room to Work Item (By Id, #<Id>) generate a record on the log of Work Item.
We have announced earlier that we are deprecating the Team Rooms later this year.
Because of this, I will decline this suggestion as we are not making any investments in this area anymore.

Compete with Slack and GitHub by adding this feature!
This is an obvious feature missing from team rooms. It should be top of the list.
Michael Caron commented
This feature alone is why we are considering a move to HipChat onPremise over Team Rooms. I can't believe this is not in the pipeline already... just thinking we'll have to wait for it.
Ken Jones commented
This should definitely be done to enable history of chat around PBIs / bugs
I don't care if there's a skype integration or anything. The result is what counts. And I need a searchable chat just like Slack.
Need another argument? Github has it.
search, hashtag link please...

I was excited about the prospect if moving all our team discussions out of Skype/Lync into TFS, to not lose all that knowledge .. until I realized there's no search ...
We're using a multi-tenant Lync instance, so we don't have persistent chat as an option - and we're now having to head down the road of adopting Hipchat for our team IM conversations.
I know it's difficult making software - but it really shouldn't be so difficult to mash together something usable between the massive IP's of Lync and Skype, Live messenger etc.
this would be fantastic, similar to the conversation feature in VersionOne

Voted this one up. Ideally this would roll into the on prem version as well.
Tim Schaeps commented
would love it! (e.g.: I know somebody asked me let's say 30 days ago, but I want to check it without knowing the date and/or approximate date, a search would be great!
