Create and manage verticals in Microsoft Search

Reference ID: MC294745 | Effective: January 1, 2022

MC294745 – Microsoft is making changes to Microsoft Search. This update will allow Microsoft Search administrators to create and modify out-of-the-box and custom search verticals in Microsoft Search.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 85657.

When this will happen:

This feature will begin rolling out to Targeted Release (select users) beginning in late November 2021.

Microsoft expects the Standard Release rollout to begin in early January 2022 and they expect that rollout to be completed by late January 2022.

How this will affect your organization:

You will be able to modify search verticals(tabs on top of search result page) and add new verticals with SharePoint content for your tenant search page.

These new customization capabilities will be accessed in the Search & intelligence admin center under the Customizations tab.

What you need to do to prepare:

Review Customize the search results page (see additional information) if you wish to create custom search verticals.

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
