    It would be beneficial to be able to search the entire site/portal. I cannot find a location on the site/portal to do this.

  4. Remove osssearchresults.aspx / WSS Search

    Since WSS is an SKU is dead, can you remove the WSS Search results page?
    Currently it appears to be the default option which causes a lot of grief.

  6. More ADA / Screen Reader Context on the Search Page

    When using a screen reader and navigating from the SharePoint search page to another page and back to the search page the SharePoint search page does not read out which result source (All, Sites, Files, People, or News) that it is currently on and it has caused come confusion.

    If we could add more context for what exactly a user has on the search page that would be very much appreciated. If you need help in testing usability / function of the page please feel free to reach out.

    Thank you.

  7. Has something changed in regards to Search Suggestions for SharePoint Online?

    Recently we noticed our list of search suggestions are not appearing as individuals enter search terms, that normally trigger the search suggestions to appear, in our SharePoint online search query input boxes. Has something changed with Search suggestions?

  8. Search Optimization

    As an ambassador navigating to find my escalation ticket can be time consuming. Having my name listed on the ticket would greatly decrease the time needed to find it. As of now I have to scroll and hope I recall the description for my ticket or hope that a keyword in the browser finder will cut the time down.

  9. Add the option to customize the notifications generated by Sharepoint (noreply@sharepoint.com)

    If a user is deleted, the sharepoint notification center generates an email indicating that another user will be able to continue accessing the site. It also generates a message that indicates that you have to communicate with the administrators to make the change.

    I want to be able to customize this mail.

  11. Select search results checkbox

    Allow global search results to be selected and actionable. e.g I search site for "thumbs.db" and i get 100 results. I cannot delete them.

  12. Show (also) email attachments in SharePoint people search (like in Delve)

    Our colleagues are used to work with SharePoint Search and do not want to use antother app for this purpose. Unfortunately people search in SharePoint doesn't bring up any Email attachments but only files stored in SharePoint or shared within OneDrive. I really hope that this is going to be changed soon...

  13. Support authentication for OpenSearch integration at SharePoint Online

    We would like to extend SharePoint Online search result by implementing OpenSearch protocol. One thing is that it doesn't support authentication right now: https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/201521/authentication-is-disabled-in-opensearch-result-source-on-sharepoint-online/213775. Since the data we are exposing are from customer on premises environment, authentication protection is required. Thanks.

  14. Choosing default ranking model in query rule management breaks date sorting

    Per this documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/search/manage-query-rules

    This section: Change ranked search results

    This specific action -- choosing an alternate ranking model for the default sort

    If you chose to sort by rank, you can optionally:

    Select which model to use for ranking search results (this selection is optional). Use the Ranking Model drop-down list.

    Issue is: are MSFT search product managers aware that if this sort option is chosen (to default sorting to a specified ranking model), it 'breaks' any other provided sort options on the results page (i.e., date sorting, ascending or descending no longer works -- the picklist option for…

  18. SharePoint Online search connector to Azure Data Lake

    This idea is to create a SharePoint Online search connector to Azure Data Lake. This should be similar to the file share connector we have in hybrid search, but connect directly from the SharePoint Online search engine to Azure Data Lake. This will allow us to include files stored in Azure Data Lake in the enterprise search solution.

  19. "query rule"

    Please add the SharePoint On-Premises feature to SharePoint Online to create Query Rules with the Query Condition: "Query matches this regular expression". This would enable us to target query rules based on our organisations reference format.
