I am currently trying to implement a Recent Documents Web part in SharePoint Online using the Modern Experience, however, I don't yet understand how it works. The main documents i want to show up are PDFs located in a document library that the user recently viewed.
Right now, on a site where I've only accessed PDFs, the web part doesn't pull anything. On another site where i accessed PDFs frequently, it only pulled word documents that i have edited.
How exactly does this web part work? Does it only pull documents I've edited? Does it not pull PDFs at all?
Any explanation as to what might be happening is appreciated. Thanks.
