Redirect link for modern search in modern team sites to classic search center
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.
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 have a similar Use Case. We would like to use our existing Enterprise Search Center with all Customization. So at the moment it is not possible to send all requests to a Central Search Center. Despite the Customization Options in Site Settings (Search Settings) are still available
Our client wants to use the modern experience to better support its mobile workforce, but not being able to get to classic search consistently mean we are having to move back to classic experience for lists.
It would be much better if;
1. the library could be set to use classic search
2. the modern experience included an option to view results in classic search next to the existing "See more results for..." that appears when you begin entering a phrase.
Search is becoming increasing confusing in O365 and specifically SPO.
Hi SharePoint Team. If a user is searching within a document library and is using the modern page experience, he gets a link on the bottom of the document library "Expand search to all of SharePoint". And this link can be changed by the site collection settings to a classic search center.
Also if a user is searching on the new SharePoint landing page, he also gets a link to use the classic search center on the bottom.
This functionality is not available everywhere in site collections and groups with a modern page experience. When you are searching from the home page of a modern team site, you won’t get the link "Expand search to all of SharePoint" or the link “Go to classic results page”
If such a link would be available everywhere, the user experience for search would be improved a lot.
If you want, it is also possible that we do a short call to discuss my suggestion in detail.
