  1. Microsoft is updating Office to make Bing the Default Search Engine in Chrome!!?

    Is this a joke? How is this even legal. This will confuse people, inconvenience everyone, and cost our company money.

    Beginning with Version 2002 of Office 365 ProPlus, Microsoft will install a browser extension that makes Bing the default search engine for Google Chrome, providing the benefits of Microsoft Search in the browser to those end users.
    • This browser extension is scheduled to be available in Monthly Channel (Targeted) in February 2020.
    • It is expected to be released to Monthly Channel in early March 2020.
    • It will be included in the upcoming releases for Semi-Channel (Targeted) and…

  2. Improve Country list in Bookmarks

    The country list for bookmarks is currently based on the Bing Marketplace values, but this list of countries is limited. Sourcing the country list from Azure Active Directory would provide a much more comprehensive list to choose from.

  3. Allow adminstrators to manage Microsoft Search through PowerShell and APIs

    While the search adminstration tasks all have import and export options, they currently require an administrator to sit in front of the admin center and complete them manually. As far as I can tell there are no PowerShell modules or REST APIs that allow you to update things like bookmarks, acronyms Q&As and locations programatically. Please add these options in order to allow us to automate some parts of the management.

  4. Extend Bing Search into more O365 Apps

    I find this new Bing Search in the new Edge version 79 just gorgeous - what a great help in my daily work.

    Currently the Bing Search gives me results from People, Sites, Files, Teams, and Yammer.

    Do I assume correctly that the search will expand into all Office 365 apps? I am especially looking for seeing results from Outlook, Sway, Stream, Flow, Forms, OneNote, and Planner.

  6. Allow content to be pulled through from other services

    For example we have a Knowledge base built in wordpress. It would be helpful if we could pull this content into Microsoft search results. This would give us a uniform location for users to search for help topics relating to our workplace.

  7. Allow the uploading of Visio Floor Plans as well as AutoCad

    The current implementation allows the importing of dwg files with tags set for room numbers: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftsearch/floorplans-bestpractices. We have visio diagrams of our building layouts and no Autocad or dwg version or any idea how to tag them using the Autocad software. So hopefully there will be a method in the future of uploading visio floorplans instead.

  8. Outlook permission-based shared-mailbox searches

    Currently with a permission-based shared-mailbox, searches find only items within the current folder. That is, a search can search only a current shared-mailbox folder, or it will search the owner’s “all mailboxes,” and “all Outlook items”—not including the shared-mailbox folders. Outlook cannot search all of the shared-mailbox folders—each shared-mailbox subfolder must be searched individually. We understand that your engineers have reproduced this consequence, but the engineers have stated it is “by design.”

    We request that a global change be made to allow searches of permission-based shared-mailbox folders when searching “all mailboxes.” Alternatively, we request a global change that would allow…

  9. Create a professional Search App for Windows

    Windows XP had this "expert" view for Explorer search. One could decide to search within Filenames or content by unsing different forms. Nowadays all options/filters are hidden and nobody knows them.
    Please provide a better GUI or a professional looking search app, so no all users wanting a good search have to install 3rd party tools and one doesn't have to search for docs before searching for files ...

  10. When searching in the Outlook client (or on the web), the forward/reply icons disappear

    When searching in the Outlook client (or on the web), the forward/reply icons disappear. Can it be updated so that when a search is done, the forward/reply icon is still showing?

  11. Add ability to add custom refiners to modern search page

    Using the refiners managed properties it was so valuable to add the refiners to the search page. IE RefinablString 01 It is crucial to any decent search page to refine from thousands of documents to the few that you are really interested in.

  13. need complete sample/documentation to setup floor plansearches.

    currently the documentation is very very weak.

    I dont know what to put in the different prompts asked during the configuration on the web

  14. add ability to search Admin Center pages

    There is no way to search for content that exists on the various admin center pages which can make it difficult to find after changes have been made. For example, i wanted to find the Attach Surface Reduction rules and could not remember which security center they were located in. There is no way to do a Search to find them. we have to know how to navigate to them. This is a common issue for all of the admin pages.

  15. Increase SharePoint Online index

    The SharePoint Online search crawler currently has a 10,000 unique word limit per file in a library. This limit can run out quickly if a file contains lots of unique strings, and sometimes within the first 10 pages of a document. It would be useful to be able to expand this limit so large documents can be store, and importantly have their contents searchable using the site search function.

  16. Quick search for filename patterns

    There are tools like "Everything", "Locate32" which find every file in a local NTFS drive within a second by using the NTFS-MFT. Please integrate a feature like this an Windows 10 Clients as well as in Windows 10 fileserver!
