How does search work?
Search has two main components:
Suggested Results: As you search, Box will provide you a list of suggested results in a drop down menu. These results are items Box thinks are a close match to your search term. Suggested results are returned to you as fast as possible and are updated with each character you add.It’s important to note that suggested results are based primarily on file and folder names only.
