Saw a bunch of post about search and it not searching what everyone needs it to.

My suggestion, the two biggest features of SharePoint are SEARCH and RESTORING

deleted rows (items).  


SS - C'mon man.  You gotsta prioritize this.  Admins have to sleep at night.

    I've definitely got your vote down for a way to search through an attachment and its metadata on our enhancement request list for further consideration by our Product team. I wanted to shed some light on why we don't have this in the app now: In order to be able to search through your attachments, we have to know what your attachments are and index their data. That means we'd have to open them on the backend. Smartsheet is mostly about keeping your data protected and secure, and that includes us not having knowledge of your data. (We at Smartsheet can't see your sheet data or attachments unless you share your sheets with us.)


    Regardless, I've got your vote down for this on our enhancement request list for further review by our Proudct team.


    I also wanted to mention that I've edited the tags on this discussion. Please keep tagging down to the specific revelant topics for your discussion—thanks!
