  2. Allow refinable managed properties to be stored in the People Full-text index (PeopleIdx)

    Currently unable to change one of the pre-defined refinable managed properties to be stored in the People full-text Index (PeopleIdx).

    This means that we're unable to refine people results (ContentClass=urn:content-class:SPSPeople) based on the values in the User Profile Properties reliably as the values are not stored in the index.

    This is possible in SharePoint on-premises and it'd be great if SPO supported this as well.

  4. Reveal/Use pdf metadata in sharepoint library

    PDF has fill-in forms but the input data can't populate a fieldname in a sharepoint library as with a word document?

  5. SharePoint Online search functionality

    I would like you to improve the search behavior that file name more than two consecutive Chinese characters are out of search scope when searching it in lists/libraries of SharePoint Online.

  6. Export Search Results to CSV/Excel

    To the Microsoft Team: Thanks for keeping up the good work while listening thru the "user voice"!

    If you have to believe this, there have been at least 10 of my customers who have requested an "EXPORT to CSV" feature on the People Results page. I have seen a lot of other products having the export functionality, and would love to see this added in the SharePoint Online platform.

  7. filter pane

    When performing a modern Search of a document library (upper left corner) the 'Open the filters pane' icon disappears and you can't filter the search result. Please include the filter pane in the search result of document library also.

  10. Viewing items in the Content Search Web part

    In the Content Search Web part, it takes few hours for updated items to be searchable.
    So, I would like to ask the search functionality improvement that items would be searched with the immediate index reconfiguration right after items are updated.

  11. We need to be able to add custom refiners to the default modern hub site search experience.

    We have several business needs which rely on easily searching and consuming information across our sites. While we appreciate the work so far that's gone into modern hub and site structures, we would like to be able to customize the default hub site search part. Particularly, we want to be able to add additional Refiners. We already have the required refiners in our site's defined search schema, why not allow us to add additional refiners to the search experience?

  12. Allow users to open modern search results in Client App

    Classic search pages allow users to define preferences to open (MS Office) results in the client app.
    As the online version of Office is a 'light' version of the corresponding product, it is not optimised for large files and does not provide functionality for some features.
    Please consider adding the ability to open documents in the client app from the modern search results (not download).

  13. Search in embedded files

    We get regularly from our users that a search in embedded files should also be possible. According our MS contact this isn't possible.

  14. Set search scope from the search box

    It'd be handy for users to be able to change the scope of searches conveniently before submitting a query (e.g. a drop-down option in the search box to toggle between Search | Search this site | Search [within this Document Library])

  15. Sort Blog Search Results by Modified Date

    In WSS 3.0 (SharePoint 2007), when we searched a blog, it gave us the option to sort results by Relevance (the default) or by Modified Date. Now in SharePoint Online, when you search a blog, it gives you no sort options, but seems to list the search results in random order. This is a step backwards in my opinion. We need to be able to sort by Modified Date again.

  16. Keyword Search Problem

    There is a document "SharePoint Introduction.docx" in a library, when I input "Share" or "Point", it can't be searched, but input "SharePoint" that I can find the document in search results.

  18. Dynamic update of sharepoint task list and timeline

    Me and probably a lot more people are looking for an update for sharepint task list and the timeline that you can use. I really think that this is something to continue improving since a lot of organizations are struggeling with their planning and the structure around it. Sharepoint task list and the timeline is a step for a better future and would improve a lot of organizations and teams with their planning.

    I would like Microsoft to enable sharepoint task list and timeline to be able to support filtering of tasks (goals and activities) which also updates the timeline…

  19. Modern Search for Events should point to modern event page

    When searching in the modern search for events posted using the modern event experience, the event is returned in search but the link points to the classic event list item, and not the modern experience. This makes it useless as the link and other fields that are part of the modern experience are not shown. There seems to be no way to get the modern event experience as part of the modern search.

    For example the URL I would want to return would be https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/site/_layouts/15/Event.aspx?ListGuid=a550d0ea-2ff2-4fdc-acd0-e59e2ad78ceb&ItemId=144 but what I am getting back is the classic dispform link https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/site/Lists/Events/DispForm.aspx?ID=144

    This is very…
