Advanced search capabilities in Webex Teams to do absolutely exact match and handle special characters

I want to propose an enhancement in Webex Teams, so that the user can user the search to find a string with more than one word so that it can be the exact match. A similar feature Google offers when we add quotes (i.e. "my exact phrase" or "my string with . and # and other special chars")

There are many cases where users remember a sequence of words and they want to quickly find it. Today, with the search options available, it results on all messages with any of the words, and it seems the search is not taking in account special chars.

    I would also like support for special characters. For example, if I search for "c++", it finds any message that happen to have a word that starts with "c". That is not very helpful. I tried quoting the search term, escaping the "+" with slashes, doubling the characters, etc. Nothing seems to work.

    would love to encourage the use of # (hashtags) to quickly find things tagged.

    • Possibility to add others persons into the chat conversation without create a new space for this.

    • For any chat call on going, possibility to dial to a cellphone and include them in the call.
