Improve to search users, groups ...
We have a lot of users, groups ... and we'll apreciate the improvement of the possibity to find results in differents views
Allow the use of wildcards on the search box, use of costumize filters, sort and group by differents fields.

It is really appalling that search defaults with "Starts with" - I am shocked that this made it past QA. I have to believe that MOST people would have assumed that the search behaviour was "Contains" I feel that UserVoice should be for enhancements. I feel this request is a complete oversight. I'd like to see their be an IMMEDIATE change of default behaviour to "Contains" then add the Advanced search as a UserVoice item for prioritization.
It would also be nice to list the members of a group in alphabetical order!

Wildcards in search is the thing I miss the most
Any kind of fuzzy search would be amazing. Having to type in group names word for word is very onerous.
Also, to simply search by last name would be a nice start.
This is not just an issue in the O365 admin interface but with the OnPrem Exchange 2016 web interface as well. A wildcard search is a must for a company like ours with 25,000+ mailboxes, 17,000+ groups, 500+ resources, and 7,000+ contacts.
And MS wonders why nobody takes them serious as a Search company (i.e. Bing).

Really it is a no-brainer and is not difficult to implement. How can it not be in place already. Get it done Microsoft.

Yeah, I was told by the support person to do this:
1. export all my contacts in a csv
2. open in Excel
3. Search there.
This is a very basic and lacking "feature", much like the lack of Tables in Outlook (for Mac). Really MS?

Wildcard searching is a must, both in the web interface and admin mobile app
Paul Youngberg commented
Pretty basic functionality to be missing. Why is it that when I got to O365 Admin > Groups that all my groups are sorted by creation date? Why can't I sort them alphabetically???
Paul Dredge commented
This would be brilliant. Come on MS sort it out :)

Yup, absolutely a fantastic idea! We have around 3500 ACL-groups synced from AAD-sync, and finding regular Office 365 Groups in the "groups" view is difficult, even with naming standard (which works for ACL-groups, but no user-generated groups). One filter or "tab" for Office 365 groups would be perfect. Until Powershell works great, but some admins in our org prefers gui.

It would be wonderful the possibility to export the items to excel!
