  2. 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. Move Outlook Search Box

    The latest version of Outlook 365 forces the Search Box to appear in the Title Bar. Looks clunky and hard to move the window. It would be good if users had the option to move this to where it used to be (just above emails).

  5. 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.

  8. Add Microsoft Search to GCC and GCCH

    Microsoft Search is unavailable to O365 users in GCC and GCCH clouds. This significantly reduces the usability and desirability of O365 for most organizations moving to the government cloud.

  9. Outlook search bar

    This should be a choice per user to keep original view or new current view.. word and excel have option to turn it off but Outlook doesn’t, viewing should option should be included as a choice rather then just on or off..

  10. Categories for Bookmarks and Q&A

    The bookmarks and Q&A lists get large quickly. As we are planning to distribute the management on these resources to their individual owners (HR, IT, etc.) it would be helpful to be able to provide category filters so those admins can easily locate all of their bookmarks and Q&A entries without having to hunt.

  11. Auto import updates to Search Acronyms

    Our Acronyms are managed via a separate system (Collibra). It would be helpful to have a way to create a Flow or API/PowerShell that imports updates from that system to Search Acronyms.

  12. Please add New Zealand as a region in the Admin centre - region settings

    NZ is missing as a region setting. If we expect our NZ empoyees to adopt SharePoint Online, being able to make NZ content more relevant would help.

  13. Allow bookmarks to be scoped

    Scoped so you can decide if they should appear on all search results - such as when searching sites in SPO. Or the default behavior, when searching at the organizational level

  14. Acronyms not appearing in search

    Acronyms not appearing in search. I can easily add Acronyms to Microsoft Search admin, but after waiting three weeks, I still do not get results when I search an acronym in Bing.

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

    currently the documentation is very very weak.
    we need a full sample, with sample autocad file to be able to go through the entire setup process.
    I'm not sure what I have to pout in AAD
    I dont know how to create the autocad file (specialy when we have visio and no autocad)
    I dont know what to put in the different prompts asked during the configuration on the web
    etc...

  17. Unassigned seating in floor plans

    We have several locations that have open seating on each floor, rather than designated seats. Currently, those users show up in Bing Search with no link to floor plans. It would be useful if search results would show the floor plan for the floor the employee resides on (minus the pin). This would allow users to see where the open seating areas of the floor are, so they know approximately where to find the person they are looking for. Additionally, it would provide a similar experience across different user queries, rather than having some that have an office link (and…

  18. 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.

  19. Improve error messages for bookmarks, fields are not highlighted

    The error messages are unclear when you try to publish a bookmark. Here is an error message I see often: "There are some errors on the page. Please review and update any highlighted fields. If no fields are highlighted please try again later." However, no fields are highlighted, so I do not know if there is a formatting issue, or whether I actually need to just try again later. I also waited a day and tried to publish again. I reached out to Microsoft directly and they said no one had reported this issue yet. Please update the error messages…

  20. Make it so that external users also get redirected by the “Which search results page should queries be sent to?” function

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    外部ユーザーも "クエリの送信先にする検索結果ページ" の機能によりページ遷移するようにしたい
    Make it so that external users also get redirected by the “Which search results page should queries be sent to?” function


    ■Description(内容):
    テナントのユーザーの場合は Microsoft Search を利用できるため、"クエリの送信先にする検索結果ページ" の機能が利用できるが、外部ユーザーは Microsoft Search を利用できないため、 "クエリの送信先にする検索結果ページ" の機能を利用できない。外部ユーザーが Microsoft Search を利用できるように機能を拡充、もしくは "クエリの送信先にする検索結果ページ" 機能そのものの機能拡充を希望します。

    Since users in your tenant can use Microsoft Search, they can use the “Which search results page should queries be sent to?” function, but since external users cannot use Microsoft Search, they also cannot use “Which search results page should queries be sent to?”. Please make it so that external users can use Microsoft Search, or…
