  1. Allow acronym searches to work by only entering the abbreviation

    The new Answers/Acronym search function in SharePoint Online appears to require the user to phrase their search as a question, like "What is ABC" - and searching "ABC" by itself does not work. Please allow users to enter abbreviations as a single-word search query.

  2. outlook search

    As soon as you click into the search bar to bring up the search options, it covers those options with a drop down… Please put search back where it was or make it a fixed item (e.g., between View and Help)

  3. 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…

  4. Outlook search on Office 365 is ineffective.

    Old outlook searches worked well, but the current version doesn't return all emails that contain query terms. It makes outlook basically worthless. There have been numerous posts on this, but apparently no response/resolution. i have copied text from an email, dropped it in the search bar, and had that email be missed in the search. Please put a team on to fix this.

  5. 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).

  6. Floorplan Search also in Microsoft Search in Office 365?

    The Floorplan
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftsearch/manage-floorplans
    is only searchable in Microsoft Search in Bing, but not in Office 365 or SharePoint Online. Also not clickable in People Profile Cards in Microsoft 365. Inconsistent UX!

  10. Provide option to remove/relocate "SEARCH" field from title bar of Outlook window.

    There is plenty of wasted space in Outlook GUI, but placing a live SEARCH field in the middle of the window title bar defeats the purpose of having something to move, select, or drag the window with. If the user has multiple windows open, the title bar gets more narrow and having the SEARCH feature fill that space makes it difficult to 'grab' the window to move it or to dock it to one side of the screen. Word, Excel, and other Office apps have the ability to collapse this; provide the same for Outlook.

  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. Improve error messages for bulk publishing in Microsoft Search

    I was unable to publish multiple results at one time because I would get a default error message that did not indicate which result contained the error. It would be helpful to have an indication of which result contains the error so we do not have to go through them individually. Right now, the only way to see which item has an error is to individually open each one and then try to publish.

  14. Allow end users to provide feedback (or suggested updates) to Acronyms, Bookmarks, Locations, and Q&A

    Acronyms, bookmarks, locations, and Q&A's may become obsolete or outdated over time. As users come across these types of results, provide a way for them to submit feedback to a specific mailbox, search admin, or search editor. Or, a way to flag the item for review.

  15. 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

  16. 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..

  17. one note

    Please improve OneNote search results.

    Right now, Search will find items inside of OneNote, BUT when you click open the OneNote, the search does NOT take you to the correct section and page where the result was found. This makes OneNote searching extremely ineffective. Result must take you to the correct section, page, and then the result.

  19. Dictate order of Bookmarks with same trigger Keyword, and have all appear the same

    Right now up to three Bookmarks can be displayed in the search results pages if they share the same Keyword as a trigger. One appears as "primary" with hyperlinked title, URL and description, while the other(s) appear under Related with only a hyperlinked title in tiny font. I would like all to be displayed the same as the "primary" and would like to be able to set which appears first, second, and third.
