Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Search in SharePoint Online, part of SharePoint Online Essential Training: The Basics.
- [Instructor] One of the criticisms of early versions…of SharePoint was that search did not work well.…Search works very well now.…Let me tell you some things about search.…First, search will only return results…that you have permission to see.…So imagine that you're sitting in a meeting…with two or three people, all of you go into…search SharePoint at the same time.…You are likely to get different search results…because different people have access to different sites,…different lists, different libraries.…Second, search is customizable…by your SharePoint administrator.…
For example, it might be that you have…a library that doesn't return search results…because it's been setup not to.…So it's possible that if the administrator says,…when people search, don't return results from this library,…that you'll look at a document, you'll see it there…and you'll search for it, and it will never appear.…That's because that library is setup…not to respond to search.…When I search I click up in the upper right-hand corner…
