With SharePoint on premise there’s plenty of search options to increase the frequency of the search crawl, to the search results show up quicker.

– Increase the incremental search periods

– Add on an app server to take on the additional search horse power

– Target sites or site collections that require quicker search crawls

The list can go on….

But with Office 365, this ability isn’t there..

Chris O’Brien has a good explanation on this: waiting-for-search-crawl-in-office-365 with some work arounds, but queries can break.

One approach I discovered was to set the server resource quota to 10,000. By default, it’s 300. This setting can be found in the SharePoint Admin Center.

Do you want Office 365 training?

When I did this I was getting search results in 5-10 mins after a document was uploaded.
