Sharepoint search for files not working

Brass Contributor



Please i need your help on this issue.


WE are experiencing an issue with SharePoint search for files.


We have uploaded multiple files into the SharePoint "PDQ Freight" a few days ago, but none of the files are appearing in the search results across different platforms such as One Drive, SharePoint in a browser, and the SharePoint Android app.

Make sure, that you have permission and that the files have bee checked in.
