Hello together,
we have changed the start page of our SharePoint Online Tenant to a page created by us.
Now all contents of the organization can be searched on this page in the search, but no persons are displayed.
So the search for persons does not work.
This worked with the standard page.
Does anyone have experience here?

kind regards 
Silas Muth

Hello,

You will need to configure the search scope.
See this video for more information:

Hello,
I have found exactly one PowerShell command that fixes this problem.

#Set Parameters

$SiteURL = "https://crescent.sharepoint.com/sites/Marketing"

 

#Connect to SharePoint Online site

Connect-PnPOnline -Url $SiteURL -UseWebLogin

 

#change default search scope

Set-PnPSearchSettings -SearchScope Tenant
