  1. 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…

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Search all the different historical Malware or Ransomware or PUA files or emails that exist in our environment

    We recently picked ransomware in one of the old emails, it was alerted through Defender. Is it possible to search all the different historical Malware or Ransomware or PUA files or emails that exist in our environment (Exchange Online, Sharepoint, etc...) and we've not been alerted or aware of them. The malware/PUA/Ransomware can be of any type or any name or any extension or any format and we are not aware of the details and would consider as concealed or archived in the user’s mailbox as an example.

  7. Please provide way to find Word files with compatibility mode associated

    Some Word .docx files open as Read Only on my iPad Pro. Discovered on laptop they open in [compatibility] mode. I want to find and fix them on laptop, not discover them when on iPad I find they are read only! Office 365 on iPad, Office 2019 on laptop.

  9. 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.

  10. 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. Include the same customization capability that has always been in SharePoint search.

    For years we have had the ability to successfully customize SharePoint search with managed properties, crawl rules, query rules, result sources, it goes on and on. With MS Search you have taken that flexibility away. So now half of our tenant gets one search experience and the other half (Modern sites) get what they get. Put the two together with full functionality or give us an option to use classic search in Modern sites. It's getting really frustrating explaining to users that a Best Bet is now a Promoted Result or it could be a Bookmark depending on where you…

  12. 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)

  13. outlook search not working right

    when i search outlook the results did not come up. Your tech support helped me and the guy gave the following reason:- "Sometimes, when the Outlook is trying to finish the sync process, which is run frequently to keep your mailbox updated, the search function could be delayed a bit."
    my response was as follows:-
    "ok I suppose I will just need to give it more time if it happens again but it was strange that I could see the june invoice email in that folder and it wasn't coming up on the search. I think this is an issue…

  14. Index Microsoft Office Tags as metadata

    Microsoft Office files allows you to add tags to a document from the document information panel. You can also view and update the tags column in File Explorer. However, if the document is saved to SharePoint Online, the tags content is not indexed by Microsoft Search.

    It would be useful for this text to be indexed and also to support searching on this attribute (e.g. where tags contains 'proposal')

  15. In Outlook search results, can you please tell me what mailbox the item came from?

    It can be hard to tell what mailbox an item is in because if you go to the file->current folder, the mailbox is not listed. It just says "contacts" for example. I have 4 or 5 mailboxes in my Outlook, so I have no idea which contacts folder it is talking about.

  16. Outlook search terms should not erase when changing folders or mailboxes

    Can you please make the search terms in the "search at top" feature survive a folder or mailbox change? That way I can search in various folders and mailboxes without having to re-type the terms.

    I use Outlook at work. I recently noticed in the upper right hand corner of the screen the "Coming Soon" button. So, I flipped it on. When trying the new Search field at the top to search my email, you CAN'T Copy and Paste into it. That is something I wish you guys would fix. Thanks.
