Search Office 365 Contents

  • Now, head into “Cortana” and type the search query that you would like to be served from “Office 365”.
  • But you need to simplify the query so that “Cortana” can easily retrieve the result and hence, click the “Filters” like “documents”, “email”, “calendar”, based on your content and “Cortana” will exhibit the result.

  • When you clarify your search, it will be easier for “Cortana” to return back with appropriate “Office 365” results.

The latest build 14332 carried few but very significant modifications with it and once such is the ability to unearth the contents of Office 365 on your machine through the digital assistant Cortana.

The Cortana filters in the preceding build were not as many as we spotted in this build which includes email, calendar and maybe, these filters will work wonder in fetching the Office 365 contents.

For the time being it is outlined that this capability might work a little slow due to some “server-side” issues but the team said they are on their way to fix it and will be reported to the users very expeditiously.
