SharePoint's document index allows you to search for content inside documents, and in document/item metadata.
To search for documents/items or for content in documents/items:
In the harmon.ie sidebar, click the Search icon () in the navigation/search omnibox.
Optionally, select the column in which you want to search. The default columns you can search in are Author, File Name, File Extension, Title, and Size. Your administrator can configure searching by email columns as well.
Optionally, select the search scope:
Current Folder to search for content in the current folder or document set (this option is only available if the current location is one of those).
Current Library to search for content in the current/containing library.
Current List to search for content in the current list (this option is only available if the current location is a list).
Current Channel to search for content in the Files location of the current Teams channel (this option is only available if the current location is a channel).
Current Team to search for content in all Files locations of the current/containing Team.
All Teams and Groups to search for content in all Files locations of all Teams and Groups.
Current Site to search for content in the current/containing site.
All Locations to search for content across all site collections.
Type a word or a phrase that you want to search for in the navigation/search omnibox.
Click the Go icon (), or press Enter, to search for your phrase.
To repeat a recent search, click the navigation/search omnibox while it is empty to see the last 3 search terms. Select a search term to repeat the search.
Limitation: When searching for content using the Current Site / All Locations of Site search scopes, the information for the returned documents may be partial (for example, the document name may be shown with no extension). In such cases the Copy command is not available. As a work around, right-click the document and click Open Containing Folder. From there you can copy the document.
To view the search results:
Search results are displayed in the sidebar's document list. The sidebar sorts the matching items in order of relevance, as defined by SharePoint.
You can use the Visible Columns dialog to determine which columns are displayed in the search results. By default, the Icon, Name, and Path of each search result item are shown.
When selecting an item from the search results, the search context pane displays where in the document/item the searched phrase was found. The navigation search omnibox, at the top of the sidebar, shows the breadcrumbs of where the selected item is located on the SharePoint server.
