Default search box in a site not giving searches output RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am setting up a new site and there is a list which I have created using import spreadsheet method.

    This list has many columns along with data in it.

    However, when I am trying to search anything - it is saying that "Nothing here matches your search". though I have this present as text in one of the columns of the list.

    Can anybody let me know why is this not working as expected ?

    Thanks and Regards,

  • Hi Riya,

    Make sure your New Site is Crawled recently If you just created just wait for a day to get crawled if not go to Search Service Application -> Content Sources -> And check for Next Crawl run time and if you want you can start a Incremental crawl manually right away but i would say don't do that. Once crawl is finished you should be able to see search items from the search box.

    Go to Site -> Site Settings -> Under Search check for Search and Offline Availability -> and click on Reindex Site and click OK. So, when the crawl runs it makes sure that this Site is Crawled. You can also do this for Specific List as well by going to List Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Reindex List.

    Thanks & Regards,
