User wants to search list items in the search box on the upper left of the [site page] for modern UI.19 votes
Thanks for your feedback! Let’s make sure I’ve understood your feedback correctly. Your user is on the home page of a site, and then uses the upper, left search box to search for a list item that exists on the site. But, doesn’t get list items in the search results?
I would like to be able to narrow my search to a specific document library or folder so that the search returns results only from the doc library or folder and any folders or subfolders below them.13 votes
Thanks for your feedback! We’d like to understand better. Are you thinking of searching from a site, or from a document library?
Currently we have a large amount of file share and SharePoint data that contains Personally Identifiable Information and Sensitive Data. It would be ideal to be able to auto tag documents at the index level to filter out those documents in Search results. Additionally, it would also allow for tagging documents in a positive way, for more refined searching.4 votes
Thank you for your feedback! Your idea sounds interesting, but we would like more information to better understand, What changes to you suggest to improve the admin experience for sensitive documents? To improve the end user experience?
Hello. Can you please add a redirect link to the modern team sites, as well as the classic team sites with modern page experience, that the users can also use the classic search center which is customizable to fit the users’ needs?
You have already added a redirect link to the classic search center within the document libraries when you search for something. But this link is not everywhere available in a modern team site.3 votes
Thanks for your feedback! Your idea sounds interesting, but we need more information. We’re thinking about extending search on sites and are interested in learning what functionality you’re missing.
We find out that sometimes the contents of files which has been attached to Custom List can be searched and sometimes cannot.
I want to know which one is correct in the specification of SharePoint Online, is the capable of searching correct or the incapable of searching correct.3 votes
Thanks for your feedback! We understand that is can be confusing. Search in SharePoint has some documented limits that have to be considered when explaining the issues that you see.
First, the supported file types: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219530.aspx
Second, the limits of the parsed content of a file: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Search-limits-for-SharePoint-Online-7c06e9ed-98b6-4304-a900-14773a8fa32f
If the files you have in the Custom List exceed these limits, or are of a different filetype that what is supported, then the content is not searchable.
I hope this explains why you are not seeing search results from these files. If your files are within the limits and of the correct filetype, please give us more information, so we can consider if this is a bug or by design.
We logged a call earlier this week regarding searches for users and were disappointed to discover there is less functionality in SharePoint online to the point where development/customisation is now required to allow searches on libraries?? Please can you consider putting this back in? If a user is searching a library for documents with specific context, they dont want to be presented with a list of over 500 documents from every library on their team site, especially if they are a technical author for a specific software development area.1 vote
Thanks for your feedback! I’m not sure I’ve understood completely. Your experience is that in SharePoint Online, when you search for content that’s in a library, you don’t get results? Or, is it that you’d like to scope your search to a particular library?
