  2. Add support for indexing wikis in DevOps

    We heavily use wikis in DevOps for documentation and onboarding and stuff. It would be great if we could search those as well.

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    Acronyms, bookmarks, locations, and Q&A's may become obsolete or outdated over time.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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. Online Archive needs to be able to search all folders, not just 1 at a time

    Presently to search your online archive, you have to search each individual folder for your content (this per MS is designed like that). But if you have thousands of folder and you don't know where your email is, it could take days or longer to find the right folder to search! You should be able to search ALL archive folders for your query.

  7. Dynamics 365 Connector

    It would be really helpful if Microsoft Search (esp Search for Bing) would include Dynamics 365 Accounts and Contacts in the results. For example, searching for Contoso would include a link to the Contso Account record.

    Salesforce Connectors are in progress but I haven't seen anything for D365 - makes NO sense.

  8. 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.

  9. Detect hyphen or underscore separated words

    When using the bing-powered "work" search, I cannot find files whose names are separated with hyphens or underscores. For example, assume I have three files named "MY FILE", "THIS_FILE", and "THAT-FILE". If I type into the search box FILE then only the first one, named "MY FILE", will appear.

    This is frustrating since some systems don't support spaces easily.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Re-insert the Search bar for Microsoft Forms

    There are two different types of search bars...the general search bar and the forms sear bar. The search for Forms is the one I'm talking about. You've taken it out. I use(d) Forms exclusively for all my testing and quizzing needs, and therefore have over 200 tests and quizzes. How do I go about finding a particular quiz if I can't search for it, nor is there any folders, nor is it in alphabetical order. Please replace the search bar so I can find my forms, please? By the way, classes started yesterday, so I need them starting then if…

  16. allow scoping or and categorizations when entering acronyms

    we have a large number of different companies in our tenant, in which certain acronyms / abbreviations have a different meaning. it would be nice if a scope or a cathegory could be assigned when entering / maintaining the acronyms, which would allow the user to differentiate in the results display.

  17. Outlook Search by Date and Select All

    There are Search by Date fields in the advanced search, but they do nothing unless you add another keyword in your search. People need to be able to Search by Date only. Typical MS reply is that it's by design. Please fix this an allow the search fields to actually return results when dates are entered without any other keywords. Also please provide a clearly identified "select all" results option and not just select the first 75 results when clicking the icon in the upper left corner. None of that is intuitive to the end user that you have to…

  18. Return direct links to public Microsoft Teams, not just to the SharePoint side

    Microsoft Search returns all SharePoint sites that a user has access too, however, many of these sites are now the backend of thriving Microsoft Teams sites. Having users find and land on the SharePoint home page in these cases is not useful.

    Two possible improvements. Either, make the link to the public Teams sites show up as along side the SharePoint results (with some icon to distinguish the two), or put a prominent link to the Teams site on the home page of the SharePoint site.

  19. Support multilingual query patterns for acronym searches

    Microsoft Search users can get definitions with Acronyms in Bing, SharePoint, and Office 365. In the Search box, users enter queries like these examples: What is <acronym> or Define <acronym>

    For non-English speaking organizations it is recommended to enter the query patterns in their own language.
