You have heard that SharePoint can find anything, but you are not seeing those results. You have important content that you want to find in the SharePoint Search center either in Office 365 or SharePoint on-premises. In this presentation Matthew will demonstrate how to run a search project for a specific kind of content, like Invoices, Templates, Sites, Contracts, Resumes, or whatever it is that you need to find. This session will outline the steps required for a successful search project and then demonstrate how to configure the content, the site, and the search center to deliver actionable results for your end users.
Come spend an hour and discover what you have been missing in SharePoint Search.
In today’s demanding business climate, it is common for people to get overwhelmed by the ever-growing volume of data and information. In Office 365, Microsoft Graph and intelligent Machine Learning (ML) techniques provide personalized, new-wave insights. These features make it possible not only to search and re-act, but also, do personalized search and pro-actively find and discover content.
Marc Anderson, Co-Founder and President of Sympraxis Consulting, LLC. provides a good overview of an issue (challenge?) in Office 365 (and SharePoint) search: how to identify and manage duplicates in the result set, especially when you don’t know the reason of your issues is having duplicates. Very good post, with a lot of great details and suggestions. Read more…
“Advanced Search” is a great feature, although not utilized in many cases. Out-of-the-box, it provides a default set of available options, which are too general for most businesses. However, it can be enhanced with some easy customizations.
In this post, I’m going to demonstrate one of the most powerful configurations of “Advanced Search” in SharePoint 2013/2016 and Office 365: how to add our custom property filters.
Document Information Panel (DIP) was a great and important feature, introduced in Office 2010 clients. With its help, users were able to edit the document’s properties in-context:
However, this feature is gone in Office 2016. You cannot view and edit the document properties in this panel right under the ribbon anymore.
Autumn season is here, with so many events again: the calendar is full with workshops and conferences again.
One of the sessions I am doing this season has the title “Findability in YOUR Organization”.
The reason why I highlight the word *YOUR* is that each organization is unique with different needs. Therefore each organization needs a different approach and a different solution. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to search.
To be able to serve the organization’s search needs, the first things to understand are the three search processes:
I am happy and super excited to announce Search Explained Roadshow 2017! The first stop is Amsterdam, Netherlands with a 2-day workshop SharePoint 2016 and Office 365 Search in Practice.
Search and findability have evolved over the past several years into a new form. Search is no longer simply about “Search”. While Information Overload is the new reality of our lives, findability of relevant content gets more and more critical. The “old school” Search Center experience is outdated – we need something different, something better, something that is more efficient, more user friendly and more helpful.
In this two-day workshop, I will introduce proven steps and best practices, as well as common mistakes to avoid, demonstrated by live demos and exercises. The training provides you the guidance and action plan to take if you want to succeed with Search in your organization.

Unfortunately, one of my children got sick, and his conditions have been getting worse during the last few days, therefore I had to cancel the trip to Stockholm. My heart hurts, but health first.
If you’re attending this week’s events, I am sure you’ll find great sessions there. If you planned to attend any of my sessions, I apologize, and I hope you understand my decision. However, I’ll do a live webinar next week, on November 3, 2016 on the topic “10 Steps to be Successful with Enterprise Search”. You can check the agenda, timing and all the details HERE. Read more…
Microsoft Ignite is here this week! More than 20,000 people are expected to gather in Atlanta, GA to hear Microsoft’s latest announcements about SharePoint, Office 365 and many more.
The main focus of the week is on People, Content and Process – now let’s see the keynote’s announcements from the perspective of search and findability.
Today, at the Future of SharePoint event in San Francisco, Microsoft unveils the new cloud-first, mobile-first vision and roadmap for SharePoint, along with new innovations that empower people and organizations to intelligently discover, share and collaborate.
Unfortunately, I cannot attend the event in person, but I’m sharing my thoughts in this post.
The vision for unified access and intelligent discovery are very exciting . On modern intranets, “findability” takes place of “search“, “discovery” becomes more and more valued in the age of information overload.
