    Regarding the SharePoint portal screen where user search is done

    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…

    ■Description(内容):
    サイト上 (モダン UI) の検索欄より検索を行い、検索結果に表示される Office ファイルを開く場合、[サイト コレクションの機能] - [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] の設定や、[ライブラリの設定] - [詳細設定] - [クライアント アプリケーションで開く] の設定に依存せず、既定で Office Online で開く動作となる。

    When a search is done using the search bar on the Modern UI site and users want to open the Office files that are displayed in the search results, it will be opened using Office Online by default instead of referring to the "Open Documents in Client Applications…

    Please implement a function that can search by excluding or specifying a specific column in the list column


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点では、リスト内検索をするとすべての列及び添付ファイル内の文字も対象に検索となり期待した結果とならない。

    Currently, all rows, columns, and words inside attached files are search targets when searching within a list and thus we do not get our desired results.
    Therefore, we hope that a feature to display search results by specifying or excluding the desired rows/columns to be searched will be implemented.

  7. Search function in Recycle Bin

    Currently you cannot search for any files in the recycle bin. It is incredibly frustrating. Especially when a large number of files have been deleted and you need to find a specific file to restore. Any other file storing system generally has this feature.

    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…

  11. Search statistics

    We have SharePoint Online and would like to measure our search using some statistics. Can you guys introduce some statistics which can be used to measure search performamce in particular site collection. The usage reports and popularity trends are indeed good for item level but if we want to measure for entire site then there we don't have anything. It would be really helpful if you guys can introduce a site level search health report or a report that would guide us in right direction for having a search with much more hits and relevant data

    Regarding Modern UI search settings


    ■Description(内容):
    クラシック UI のサイトのページであれば、検索結果のクエリを編集して特定のリストやライブラリを除外することができるが、モダン UI の検索結果は編集ができない。
    モダン UI の検索結果にて、特定のリストを表示しないようにする機能を希望します。
    Search queries can be edited and specific lists and libraries can be removed for Classic UI site pages, but Modern UI search results cannot be edited.
    Thus I hope that a feature can be implemented to hide specific lists for Modern UI search results.

  13. Excel indexing boundry

    Our organization has numerous Excel files that are larger than the 3 Mb. search index boundary. It would be ideal to increase the boundary to match that of other office files, or make it settable to higher values.

    This would allow for more accurate key word searches of Excel files.

  14. search word count

    Enhance Search results. Display a count of hits for each search term (word) in the results. This would be invaluable for scientific and medical documents. Allow this feature to be enabled/disabled by the user.

  15. Support for search via synonyms for a particular term in Modern Search.

    For eg If i have managed metadata column called Keywords, which has a term called Research, which has following synonyms study,investigate,examination.

    Now when i search Keywords:Research everything works fine.
    But modern search should also support this Keywords:Study

  16. External Users should be able to Search Pages and Documents

    External Users can not search for Documents and Pages - only Images and Lists/Libraries - on shared Sites.
    Please Add Pages and Documents to their Search Results as well.

    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.

    When displaying search results in SharePoint Online site search box, only the first 2 pages can be chosen, and if we want to view any other pages there are more steps that must be taken. Please change the search feature so that search results from the first to the last page are displayed, and a way to navigate to a desired page number.

    Regarding the search results sort order for lists in Sharepoint app


    ■Description(内容):
    リストで検索した場合、PC やモバイル端末のブラウザーでは、[リストの設定] から既定のビューの編集画面で [並べ替え] で指定した並び順にもとづいて検索結果が表示される。
    しかしながら、SharePoint アプリの場合、検索結果に該当するアイテムが、初期の設定である ID 順で表示される動作となる。
    この点について、PC などと表示順が異なるとアイテムの確認に手間がかかるため、PC などの動作と同様に、指定した並び順にもとづいて検索結果を表示させることができるようにしてほしい。
    When searching using a list, the search results are shown accordingly to what has been set in the Sort option in the List Settings for browsers on the PC and mobile devices.
    However for the Sharepoint app, search results are shown according to the default setting, which is ID.
    This ends up in using up time to check what results have been returned as the order is different from what…

  20. For the Communication 'modern' Site there should be a WebPart that links to Azure Active Directory so users can do an employee search.

    For the Communication 'modern' Site there should be a WebPart that links to Azure Active Directory so users can do an employee search from the homepage of the organization's SharePoint Intranet site. Apparently this only works for the classic site and has not been implemented in the modern Communication Site.
