  2. Regarding the search results sort order for lists in Sharepoint app

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint アプリでのリストの検索結果の並び順について
    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…

  3. Have SharePoint search update comment and like count after increments

    SharePoint search currently does not re-crawl content when a like (LikeCount) or comment/reply (CommentCount) is added to a modern page. This means that when many people comment on a page, the search API will not show the updated number -- even after weeks, unless the page is republished or the site is manually re-crawled.

    SharePoint search should likely flag the page as dirty for the crawler to re-crawl the updated values so we can leverage these in SharePoint search results.

  4. Unable to search by contents entered in Description property of web part

    Unable to search by contents entered in Description property of the web part added to a page.

    If you want to search by contents, you need to use a query such as “description: xxxxx”, so we would like to search without queries.

  5. 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.

  6. Crawl rules unit tests

    As your set of crawl rules grows, it gets increasingly complicated to understand exactly which URLs are included or excluded. In Central Admin we can test all rules by pasting in a single, example URL. We then see which rule is trigged and what the outcome is (include or exclude).

    I'm asking for this functionality to be expanded. I would like to define a set of unit tests that we can run against our crawl rules list. The unit test can be defined as simple as a list of URLs where the outcome is either include or exclude.

    You can…

  9. Fix KQL for instances when a property value includes a hyphen

    If the property value contains a hyphen (-) together with the
    property operator equals (=) or not-equals (<>), then the
    query will not work due a bug in SharePoint
    search.

    As a workaround, we can use use contains (:) instead when we
    have a value with a hyphen. However, this can lead to unexpected results.

    Here's an example. The goal is to search for people where "Department" is "Ex-employee". If we use Department="Ex-employee", the filtering is incorrect, and returns all people. We can use Department:"Ex-employee", but this would also return values like "Ex-employee Relations".

    Note: This is a search topic,…

  10. Administrator shoud be albe to adjust / customize word-breaking in Japanese search scenario in SPO

    Currently in the SharePoint Online (SPO) tenant, customising feature for word-breaking dictionary is not offered.
    This is one of the painpoints for tenant administrators because amount of the data in the tenant is growing up day by day.

    Actually the customization feature for word-braking is offered in SharePoint Server (On premise) but it shold also be offered to the users who are using SPO.

  11. Managed Prop Mapping Type Check

    We had a People type mapping in OOB AccountName MP. We added another string crawled property mapping to AccountName.

    We discovered that, this caused miss the Update of current list item in next Continious Crawl cycle. When a new item added, crawl finds and ports to index, but in an update event, crawl does not fetch this update.

    When we removed the mapping menitoned above, the issue disappeared and crawl worked without problem.

    So came to a point that, having a type check for an MP-CP mapping can be a good idea to be assured of the integrity of the…

  12. Please improve the accuracy of SharePoint Online file search feature

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Onlineのファイル検索機能精度の向上を要望します。
    Please improve the accuracy of SharePoint Online file search feature


    ■Description(内容):
    現在のSharePoint Onlineの検索ではファイル名に日本語が含まれていると検索の精度が低いものとなっております。また、検索時にダブルクォーテーションやアスタリスクを指定する検索を行っても検索の精度が向上しません。そのため、日本語が含まれるファイル名を検索する機能の向上を要望します。
    Currently the accuracy of SharePoint Online file search feature is low when searching for filenames that include Japanese characters. In addition, the accuracy of the search will not be improved even if the search is performed by specifying double quotation marks or asterisks. Thus, we hope that the feature can be improved when searching for filenames that include Japanese characters.

  13. search scheme api

    I have some apps that reqire updates to the search scheme at either the tenant or site-collection level. When deploying these apps the updates to the search scheme must be done manually in an archaic UI.

  18. Improve the behavior that reloading the search result when opening a file after searching SharePoint Online library

    I request not to reload the search result page when searching and sorting Office files, such as Word documents in the SharePoint Online library. Because if I click a file to open on Internet Explorer 11 in document mode 10 by using Windows 7 PCs, search page would be reloaded and results are disappeared.

    For Windows 10 PCs, the page wouldn’t be reloaded if I selected Name (linked to document with edit menu) as Column name in Settings, Edit View. I would request the same behavior for using Windows 7 PC.

  20. 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;
