Everything you need to know about Microsoft Search

An Expert's guide to maximize information findability with Microsoft 365

You are responsible for Search in Office 365, and providing an optimized search experience is essential for daily business operations in your organization. However, out-of-the-box Microsoft Search does not deliver the relevant results that your users expect.

Moreover, you don’t have time or budget to hire a team to fix it for you – you have to rely on your own knowledge.

The good news is, our new Microsoft Search courses are here. Level up your knowledge by learning detailed step-by-step instructions, best practices as well as tips and tricks from a recognized expert.

Your Instructor: Agnes Molnar,
Microsoft RD, MVP, and Managing Consultant of Search Explained

If you’re a search manager, search administrator, or the Office 365 guru who is responsible for search, and you want to know how to become the “search champion” in your organization, I am here to help.

With over a decade of search consulting experience, I have seen all kinds of organizations: large and small, local and global, profit-oriented, nonprofit and NGO, conservative and very agile – all facing the challenges of content findability.

I’ve founded Search Explained in 2014, and since then, I have been helping organizations around the globe become more productive and efficient so they can succeed in today’s increasingly competitive world.


My passion has always been sharing my knowledge
– this is why I am super excited about our online courses.


“Good information, great to hear from how you use it, as well as how other attendees do things. Good examples”

“Well put together, strong teaching approach, live Q&A was cool.”

“The “learn as you have the time” aspect of this training was unique, in a very good way.”

“The format was great! I appreciated the opportunity to chat and talk about issues facing my own organization, and hear about what others are doing as well.”

“I liked most the use of videos regarding to “how to do sth” and the possibility to ask questions and communicate with chat.”

“Wow! Finally a meaningful explanation about Office 365 Search! Thanks Agnes!”

“Good inspiration on how to ensure better search.”

“Brilliant workshop explaining lots of pitfalls of modern Search”

“Top dollar value. The method Agnes uses to give the participants deep search knowledge is brilliant.”

Frequently Asked Questions:

While the search principles discussed during the workshop can be applied to any search engine (including SharePoint on-prem versions, of course), the technical topics, discussions, and hands-on exercises will be all specific to SharePoint Online / Microsoft 365.

We limit the number of attendees in order to be able to help everyone, regardless of their level of previous experience. You consume the pre-recorded videos and written materials in your own pace. During the live calls Agnes responds all questions – being it deep technical or high-level strategic or conceptual. Also, Agnes is online for 12 hours every day during the workshop, and helps everyone 1:1 on Teams as needed (chat as well as 1:1 calls).
In the previous workshops, we had attendees with various job roles and backgrounds:


Yes, we’re discussing all the application landscape in Microsoft 365, their search features.

Our online courses are for you! We’ll discuss what you can achieve (and how you can achieve it) with the out-of-the-box toolset, and also where the boundaries and limitations are. Also, we’ll guide you on what to do if you need custom search pages or complex search applications in SharePoint Online.
