Hi.

 

In our intranet SPO modern landing page, we have a search box just below the "Share"-button on the right part of the screen. When I type in a name and hit enter, I get redirected to a search screen (https://acme.sharepoint.com/sites/mysite/_layouts/15/search.aspx), and get the "We found 0 results for John Doe." message. When I press the "Search all content for John Doe" link at the bottom, I get the expected result. 

 

Is there a way to configure the search box to search our user directory the first time I search for a user, rather than having to search twice before locating the user? Can I have a dedicated search box for user searches only?

Hello,

Just make sure you are turning on "Search and offline availability" and waiting at least 24 hours.

Please find the link below:

Hope this resolve your issue.

@Alireza Rahimifarid Thanks for your input. Maybe I'm missing something, but the links you provided doesn't seem to be related to my particular issue - I'm not missing search results from particular sites, but rather missing people altogether in the search results, and I have to do two searches before the people directory is searched and the "people" tab appears in the search result.
