    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)

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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    Acronyms, bookmarks, locations, and Q&A's may become obsolete or outdated over time.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.

  7. Sharing of search results

    Hi all,
    We'd like to utilize MS Search for a collection of content in SharePoint and making it searchable. We have cases where a search shows good results and the user would like to share the found results already from the search result list with a little "share icon".
    Right-click and "Copy link" is not the best solution.

    Can this be taken on the list?

  8. Q&A: usage of registered keywords to Q&As in search results

    If the editors added keywords to the published Q&As and several Q&As share the same keyword, then it would be useful to search for this keyword from end user perspective and get all published Q&As with this keyword as search result and not only one Q&A (present behavior)

  9. 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.

  11. Add additional building info to Answers / Location

    For some locations, the GPS generated method of travel isn't always correct so it would be helpful to be able to provide written directions, or you'll want to recommend a nearest railway station or parking. Other useful options would be to show a photo of the building, give the office switchboard number, specify the floor to go to, confirm building opening hours, controlled entry requirements, etc

  12. Exclude spscific folders from Outlook Search

    I would like to remove the "Trash" folder that my email provider uses as Deleted Items from Outlook Search.

    As I use Search to clean my Inbox and delete emails, Search finds them in the "Trash" folder before I get a chance to fully delete them.

  13. Searches & Categories

    I use categories to organize & sort my Outlook Inbox. Searches need to show email category assignments.
