Allow search for files in the current folder instead of searching files in all folders onedrive.
Wanted to provide an update here: this is something we’re planning on doing, but don’t have a timeframe to share yet
I agree that it is ridiculous that you can't search in one particular folder on OneDrive "Business" .... (I read somewhere, that you CAN search in one particular folder with the "Personal" version...??...)..
HOWEVER, the way I am getting around it is by doing my searches on the file folder that are downloaded/synched to my laptop. I just tried this, and it seems to be working the way I need it to... (knock on wood...). I'd be interested to know if that does what the rest of you are trying to do...
Just one more vote for getting making this request a reality... Any update Microsoft?? How do you not have a timeframe?? "Hello", are you there???
Microsoft became tribble. you will find it when you call them for support too.
Thinking about it for 3+ years, planning it for 1+, what up? Hopefully mentioned below, there is a hack for limiting search to just OneDrive For Business Files: Users can go to https://[TENANT].sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx
and use this query: [QueryTerm] site:https://[TENANT]-my.sharepoint.com/personal/[USERNAME]/

For the life of Bill Gates, fix this!
this is a big inconvenience? ANy workaround.
This is here since 2015!!!
You can't specify the folder and you can't sort the files by date...

This is crazy. I really can't believe this isn't available. Awful.

Is there any update on this?

I thought this was a joke...cannot be serious?
Can't believe this isn't available. "search everything" is like finding a needle in a haystack! not good.
This is really, really stupid. May I just say, I hate OneDrive, 365.
Would be great to see this feature appear on the roadmap https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?&filters=OneDrive%20for%20Business&searchterms=search
This is a severely needed feature ... come on Microsoft !!!!

"In the Plans" Really? It's over a year and still OD search is virtually unusable. And clearly this is already doable if it is in the personal OneDrive account, but not in a company account. For the search reason alone Google Drive is definitely a better choice.
This is available in a personal OneDrive account, but not in a company account... Over a year "in the plans" now, for a feature that already exist.
the fact this cannot be done is astonishing
"In the Plans" really? Wow, It's over a year and OD search still is one of the worst.

I can't believe that I can't search within the current folder. This is a major flaw and very dissapointing
Auto correct and spell check do not work efficiently, this is a very basic function that adds time to every email - very frustrating not to feature in the web version of Outlook 365.
It is also very frustrating that you cannot search alphabetically within files, instead you have to scroll down until you find the right file.

Its beyond funny not being able to search a specific folder since 2015.
