It actually turns out that when searching documents in the Content tab of the shared space (Place B) results from the shared documents do not come up.
For example if I share a document called "Colin's Document" from Place A to Place B and then I use the "Type to filter by text" in the Content tab of Place B to search by "Colin's" I get no results.
This is a big issue.
You are correct - that is the way that it works. And those same items also do not come up if you do a search and restrict the results to the location they were shared to.
This is known behavior and has been there from when the feature was designed. I wouldn't say that it is "correct" behavior from a usability or user experience standpoint. But it is working "as designed", and so any tickets likely need to be raised as improvement rather than bug.
Hi Colin McLeod
If you share content from placeA -> placeB, you can see content in the content tab of placeB:
But, when you filter the content using 'Type to filter by text' it does not appear. Thankyou Tracy Maurer for your inputs. As Tracy mentioned this needs to be improved, you can request for improvement. That's the reason why contents shared with an action item does not appear in the 'action tile'.
Interestingly, even if we enable this flag 'Filter by shared content' and filter by action, content does not show up. It appears to be a code issue here, most likely a bug but once you make a request, Engineer can validate it accordingly.
