Video Walk-Through

Microsoft Teams messages are rendered to appear as emails in the Logikcull document viewer. Threading for Microsoft Teams messages is not currently supported by Logikcull. This workaround depends on the presence of Email Entry ID metadata and depends on how Teams messages were collected. Given the presence of the required metadata, this method allows you to isolate a message thread and sort it chronologically.

  1. In the search bar, enter file_path:*teams* to return any items in which "teams" appears as part of the file path of the collected data.

  2. Toggle your search view to Table View

  3. Customize Table View to include the Email Entry ID field.

  4. Sort your search results in ascending order to organize messages into threads.

⚠️ Please note that you may need to adjust the file path search file_path:*teams* to match the naming convention for Teams data in your specific data set.

In this example, the Email Entry ID looks like this: 00000000B4ABCBC8F32E4B488D5A0A98E504C0F9E4022000     Where everything after f9 indicates the uniqueness of the message.

In this example, the Email Entry ID looks like this: 00000000B4ABCBC8F32E4B488D5A0A98E504C0F9E4022000

Where everything after f9 indicates the uniqueness of the message.

You can then search on the Email Entry ID metadata field email_fields.entry_id: to isolate only the messages in a specific thread like so:

email_fields.entry_id:00000000B4ABCBC8F32E4B488D5A0A98E504C0F9*

Once a specific thread is isolated, you can sort your results by the Email Time Sent field to arrange the conversation chronologically.

Things to keep in mind

  1. There may be variations on this workaround depending on the export settings of the Teams data, or the version of Teams that the data was collected from.

  2. Currently, inline pictures will not render as part of the import. Attachments will still be imported, however.
