I have a Highlighted Content web-part embedded on my Modern SharePoint Online page, and have it configured to show files from a document library.

The problem I have is: if I modify the Title of a document directly in the document library - the new Title does not get updated in the Highlighed Content web-part. It continues to show the old Title, regardless of how much time passes (days, months, etc). Am I missing something?

We noticed the same behaviour yesterday. It's working for PDF just not Word Documents.

The only way I could get the title to change was to upload the document with a new filename but obviously this is not a solution.

  • You might be on to something there with the Word documents - after further testing, it seems the Title is only correctly shown for other filetypes (including Excel, for example). However, Word documents seem to show the first line of the files contents, and not the title or file name. I'll have to do further testing, and may end up needing to raise with Microsoft support...

  • We managed to resolve it with Microsoft's guidance, see my self-accepted answer on this page :)

I got in touch with Microsoft Support, and they suggested modifying the mapping for the 'Title' Managed Property in our site, and moving "Office:2" to the top:

  1. Go to 'Site Settings', and click 'Search Schema'.
  2. Search for "Title", and then right-click/edit the Managed Property for 'Title'
  3. Scroll down to 'Mappings to crawled properties' and move 'Office:2' to the top of the list, and then save the change.
  4. Go to the affetced document library settings, click 'Advanced Settings' > click 'Reindex Document Library'.

I can confirm this resolved our issue, and the highlighted content now displays the Title field for all documents accurately.

Are you changing title or name column? They are different columns and per my knowledge the Highlight content web part shall display document name column as the file name.
