BACKGROUND - I will be conducting a tutorial for SharePoint users on How to use the Search Box effectively, to use Keywords Queries in the search box to filter their search results and making files searching much easier for the users i.e.:

1) author:"John Smith" author:"Jane Smith"
2) author:Shakesp*
3) filetype:docx

One question, is there a Restriction Keyword Queries that can search ONLY in Specific Document Library and Custom List.

e.g. SearchIn'America'DocumentLibrary: Food

This will find all Food mentions in the 'America' Document Library.

  • You can use the "path:" parameter – Robert Lindgren Nov 29 '17 at 10:13
  • @Robert Lindgren ah, that's a good idea! However the path can be really long, are there any ways to shorten it? – John Lee Nov 29 '17 at 10:56

You can use query rules to achieve this. Look at using specific "Action Terms" and convert those terms to specific queries.
