  1. SharePoint Search Results does not display OneNote Page

    We’ve stored a lot of our team OneNote Notebooks on Modern Communication SharePoint site. The issue what we’re experiencing with SharePoint Search UX is that while searching for the content present within any OneNote from SharePoint, only the section name of OneNote gets displayed within the SharePoint Search results, instead of the actual OneNote page where the content resides. Thus, to get to the actual content, user needs to perform multiple searches:
    1. Search for content via SharePoint search page
    2. As the relevant information on content could be present across multiple Notebooks, lots of section names appear in search…

  2. Requesting an improvement in how Office files in search results are opened in Office Online

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    検索結果より Office ファイルを開いた場合に、Office Online でファイルが開く動作について改善を要望します
    Requesting an improvement in how Office files in search results are opened in Office Online


    ■Description(内容):
    サイト コレクションにて "既定でクライアント アプリケーションでドキュメントを開く" をアクティブ化している場合でも、ユーザー設定で既定の "ブラウザーで開く" 設定されている場合は、検索結果より Office ファイルを開くと Online で開く動作となる。
    ユーザーごとにファイルを開いた場合に動作が異なることや Online では正常に機能しない動作がある場合を考慮し、クライアント アプリケーションで Office ファイルを開くように統一したいため、サイト コレクションの設定と連動してほしい。
    また、ユーザー設定についてはユーザーごとに設定が必要であり、サイト単位で設定ができるように併せて機能の実装を要望します。
    Even if "Open in the client application" is enabled in site collections, Office files in search results will be opened using Office Online if the user setting is set to "Open using browser".
    Considering that user actions performed when the file is opened differ for every user and some actions may not be performed normally in…

  3. Regarding the SharePoint portal screen where user search is done

    SharePoint ポータル上でユーザーを検索した際の画面について
    Regarding the SharePoint portal screen where user search is done


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online ポータルの上部にある検索バーを使用してユーザーを検索すると表示されるユーザーの"自己紹介"の動作について次のように希望します。これまでは、"連絡先" に表示されるユーザーの "自己紹介" にマウスを合わせると、そのユーザーの自己紹介文が全文出ていたが、1月17日以降から現在まで表示されない。以前のように、画面を検索一覧から動かさないでユーザーの自己紹介の文章を確認できるようにしてほしい。​
    We hope that the "About Me" that is displayed when users are searched using the search bar at the top of the SharePoint Online portal can be changed in the following way. Up until now when users hover the mouse over the "About Me" part that is displayed in "Contacts", "About Me" information for that user will be shown, but this has not been shown ever since 17th of Janurary. We hope to be able to see…

  4. Please add the ability to search online for the middle or end part of a filename

    For a document with the filename "0267F243469.pdf"

    Allow searching to find the document with:
    filename:F243469.pdf
    filename:
    F243469
    filename:F2434

    Many other online solutions support the ability to search the middle or end part of a filename (not just the beginning or an isolated word) ie: Box, Dropbox, ownCloud, Datto Drive etc. Windows Explorer works fine, just not the online web search.

  7. Search management

    We think there is a pronounced need to have a way to monitor (also manage) the load on the search crawler or the index. We would like to have:


    • a monitorable queue of objects being processed by the search crawl. An admin could manage the search crawl queue thus making sure priority sites, based on business need, are indexed first, regardless of data volume contained in them.

    OR


    • a way to monitor the health of the search index. Like index statistics in SQL, we need a way to track (potentially also optimize) the load on and status of the site…

  9. Audio Search Result Preview

    Audio (mp3) files currently do not preview OR link to the audio file itself (they link to the file details page) unlike video (mp4) files in search results. This causes a poor user experience when searching for audio.

  10. Search autosuggest and results page should display the documents' Title by default

    The search autosuggest should display the documents' Title, if available. Currently, the (file) Name is displayed, which is not intuitive or legible. Displaying the document Title first is the normal pattern of all search engines.

  12. Using the "global" search box should perform a People Search regardless of current context

    The search within SharePoint should perform people searches from the organization level at all times. Users should not have to go to the search results page and traverse up to the Organization level. The autosuggest on the site search used to display people results when we first vetted SharePoint as an Intranet solution--now it doesn't.

    Currently when searching SharePoint Online’s Site Collection while granting access permissions to users, the search is only done for matching prefixes. Please improve the search function so that it works like SharePoint 2010 where other search methods will be valid as well, not just prefix searching.

  16. SharePoint Search Results - Allow "Move" and "Copy" from search results

    When searching for a document/folder, if you find it, you cannot Move/Copy it. You have to manually navigate to the exact document library path location to use the “Move/Copy” features.
    Please help improve this.

  18. Provide an ability to default the search to "Hub" level on all associated site.

    Currently in SPOnline, the search on the hub site works for both hub and its associated site. But inside an associated site, it is restricted only for that site. We need an ability to scope the search in all the associated site to its "hub" level. We found a way to elevate the search scope on all the site to tenant level. But for a client with global presence, not all intranet content to be shared globally. Some content are region specific. So they are looking for these options,
    1. Elevate the associated site default search to its "Hub" level …

  19. Ability to show new custom user profile properties in modern search results for People

    Specifically under the Contact Information section within the user profile, or alternatively could the Additional Information section be exposed like in Delve? It would be great for us to be able to show other attributes from Active Directory containing additional user information within modern search results for people.

  20. connect the modern search box on the page to pnp webpart search page

    we have a requirement to use search refiners the way it used to work in classic search. pnp modern search webpart provides that option. There should be a way to link the search box on the top of the modern site to link to the pnp webpart page. Right now the way modern search box works, it does not allow to link the search or redirect search to pnp webpart page
