For example, they can search by just first name to quickly find the people they work with most and connect with them instantly. Another example is that an user can search for documents that are stored in OneDrive or a group in SharePoint along side the documents that are stored locally. Microsoft will also support natural language queries for email search. For example, an user can search for emails form specific user with attachments with this search query, “emails from Satya with attachment”.
