My SharePoint Log

SharePoint 101 – O365 search results “Filename”

As default SharePoint Search results displays the “Title” of a document instead of the “Filename“.

searchfilename01

This behavior is sometimes really annoying and doesn’t work for the end users.

The easiest way to change this behavior is to change the “Search Schema”

Navigate to your Central Administration or O365 Search Administration | “Manage Search Schema”

searchfilename02

Search for the managed property “Title

searchfilename03

Add the crawled property ” ows_LinkFilename” as “a Mapping” to this property and move it to the top | OK | and re-crawl your content

searchfilename04

Search Results should now display the Filename before the Title

searchfilename05
