Respected Contributor

When we conduct a Search in a SPO Communication site, the results don't include people, (the same search in a Team site does). Is this a known bug?

Is there any way to workaround this?

Ey Dean, I think is the way it works now: it only search for content and not people...to search for people you need to go the SharePoint Home page or the Ofice 365 Home page
Solution
You can change the search scope of the site to default to organization which will search for people. More info. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/Configure-modern-search-results-to-search-all-of-y...

Thanks, i had missed that announcement
