New SharePoint Search Capabilities

blog0 comments

At Microsoft Ignite in September, Microsoft announced new search capabilities in SharePoint Online that enable the discovery of people, information, and expertise from across your organisation.

The search is personal, and the search results are even easier to explore. Another user will see different results than you, even when you both search for the same words.

You’ll only see results that you already have access to, and other users can’t find your private documents.

Even before you start typing, you’ll see results based on your previous activity in Office 365. The results update as you start typing.

Now, Microsoft has announced this personalised experience is rolling out to all Office 365 customers!

This means, wherever you start your search in SharePoint or, you’ll see consistent, personalized results powered by the Microsoft Graph.
The search results are arranged into sections:
• Sites
• Files
• People
• News

You can expand the search results to see more information before opening the item, and you have the choice of opening the item or going to the location where the file is stored!

When you exit a search results page, you return to the page where you started your search.
