I've seen a number of explanations for how this works in SharePoint 2013 but nothing specific to SharePoint 365.
I've got 2 separate folders within my document library, one of which contains draft documents and the other contains final documents. These documents (of which there are hundreds) are duplicated from the draft to the final submission (with various minor changes made within them) and so have the same names.
The issue is, when searching for e.g. "Health and Safety Report" the results show both the draft and the final documents. The client has requested that only the final documents show in the results. We still need the draft documents available in the library if needed, so can't remove them.
There are many other folders within the document library which need to still show in the search results and so I need to be able to exclude the draft documents folder specifically.
