I had google for awhile now and did not manage to find much info regards to Search functionality in New Experience.

Does New Experience have search functionality yet? As I seen request for others for search function.

enter image description here

If there is search function, how do I add it?

search does exist on the modern page. You currently dont have any search apps but you do have a search area. Its located on the left hand side just above the menu and below the "office 365" menu. This is also filterable once searched for a given term.

another option would be to create a client app (SPFx) that gives a custom look and feel to search within an app.

  • That was hard to find for me... totally miss that area

  • i know typical microsoft moving stuff around from right to left ;) apparently its a better UX for end users and for the look and feel.

  • Is it possible to modify the position of the search box? Other than modifying the html.(If that's an option)
