Provide same functionality as in Sharepoint 2007 to search on libraries on sites
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.
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?

I'd like to scope my search to a particular library on a specific site please.
This was standard functionality in SP 2007 but apparently not in SP online. Your technical team said it would now be customisation?
