Microsoft Edge search bar now suggests bookmarks, contacts for enterprise users

Microsoft this week announced that it's bolstering Bing search in Microsoft Edge for its business users. Now, enterprise users will be able to search for company bookmarks and contacts directly within the search bar, with results appearing right alongside the more general results that already appear there (via OnMSFT).

"This should make finding and navigating to internal resources, sites, and bookmarks just as easy as going to a public webpage," Microsoft said in a blog post. "People suggestions will land users on a Microsoft Search in Bing (MSB) results page where they can explore the people card and more."

There are several requirements that users will have to meet before company resources begin popping up in search results, however. Those include;

  • Be a member of a MSB public preview tenant
  • Signed in to a Windows machine with their AAD credentials
  • Edge version 1709 Fall 2017 Creator's update or newer installed
  • Bing is set as default search provider in Edge

Overall, Microsoft is also looking at this addition as a way to help it "better rank which bookmarks and people show up for which queries within a tenant." Going forward, Microsoft says it is working on bringing more autosuggestion support for content like Q&As and locations.
