  1. 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.

    • Add CSOM support for setting Search visibility settings

      The setting "Always index all Web Parts on this site", is not yet exposed trough CSOM.

      This setting can be found in site settings > Search and Offline Availability > Indexing ASPX Page Content

      This is usefull when using sites with broken permissions, which are then not indexed as needed.

      Please add this functionality to CSOM.
      It is this property: web.ASPXPageIndexMode = WebASPXPageIndexMode.Always;

      • Enable crawling file contents with no extension in URL when the Content-Type is properly set

        [Content Source Type: Web site]
        Files even with no extension in URL (like "http://xxxx.com/files/12345") should be crawled successfully when the Content-Type in the HTTP response header is properly set.

        When we crawl (docx, xlsx, pptx, pdf) files which include no extension in URL, the following crawl log was output and failed to identify the file format.
        "The filtering process could not load the item. This is possibly caused by an unrecognized item format or item corruption."
        The same result is obtained when the Content-Type in the HTTP response header is properly set.

        In the Diagnostic logging, we can…

        • Improve the accuracy of search in Chinese or allow administrator to adjust / customize word-breaking in Chinese search scenario in SOP

          In SharePoint O365, the search engine 's Performance is not always satisfactory,especially in Chinese. Sometimes, the search result does not match the search criteria. This issue was analyzed by MS SPO Support team and the root cause should be the incompleted word-breaking.

          User expected a better search engine in Chinese Search so that the expected result could be find out directly.

          As an alternative, user also expected that the customising feature for word-breaking dictionary could be offerred in SPO.

          • 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.

                • 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.

                  • Give option for search on _layouts/15/viewlsts.aspx to function as normal search

                    Using the search at the top left of the site contents page has a filtering impact on the contents and subsites listings. This functionality is a complete divergence from the search experience in other parts of SharePoint. There should be a way to send all search boxes to the same search results page, instead of this rather confusing setup.

                    • 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.

                      • 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

                        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…

                                    • An easy way to create modern pre defined search views when using hub sites

                                      A bit like highlighted content webbpart but better.

                                      A link could be created - that opens a page or a webpart that its easy to define layout and views of a pre defined search. So link says find all policy docs, or all forms. And as libraries across multiple hubbsites have a managed metadata for document type set up it would then be possible to define that when the search runs how these are displayed - so it would say group the found policy documents under each hub site it found them.

                                      So look like this

                                      Refiners policy | forms…

                                      • Provide feedback on Search Results

                                        Enable some mechanism that allows a consumer to provide feedback on the results they get in search (e.g. not getting expected results or feedback tied directly to a specific content item). General feedback would be routed to one place while content item level feedback would be automatically routed to the assigned author.

                                        • Need to enhance reports beyond the current OOTB Popularity Trend report

                                          The current report (Popularity Trend reports) is inadequate. Need basic report generation for the following data with user defined time range daily, weekly, monthly etc):
                                          a. Total unique user views of wiki articles per subsite
                                          b. Total unique user views per article
                                          c. 0235Search Effectiveness (How many searches before content is viewed by an user)
                                          d. List of articles by authoring and workflow status per subsite
