Using Microsoft Search

Microsoft Search effortlessly brings searching work and the web together in one experience. Use Microsoft Search for a simple, fast, powerful, and safer way to get the right information at the right time in any browser and on any device.

Whether you're searching for people, files, org charts, internal sites and resources, or answers to common questions, you can use Microsoft Search throughout your work day to get answers faster, be more productive, and work smarter. To get work results, just go to, sign in with your work or school account, and search.

What you can find

Use Microsoft Search to find:

  • People

    Easily find contact info, upcoming meetings you have together, org chart details, group memberships, and other files

  • Groups

    Find a group by its name or members, explore groups a person belongs, and browse their shared content

  • Resources and tools

    Easily locate internal resources, tools, and more

  • SharePoint sites

    Find your SharePoint sites or SharePoint sites created by groups or co-workers that you have permission to view

  • Files

    Quickly find your own files, or content created by co-workers that you have permission to view or edit

  • Conversations

    Find your private Microsoft Teams or Microsoft Yammer conversations or conversations between co-workers you have permission to view

  • Locations

    Find map results and addresses for buildings, offices, campuses, and more, easily get directions, and see what's nearby

You can only see work results when you're signed in to Bing with your work or school account. This is the same account you use to sign in to Outlook on the web, SharePoint, and other Office 365 apps.

Microsoft Search will only return information and files that you have permission to see. You may have permission because you created the files or information, they've been shared with you or with a larger group that includes you, or they're stored in folders or locations that you have permission to access.
