Issue with Search Function in BILaunchPad

Hi Experts,

we are having some issue with Search function in BILaunchPad. Using the search function within the BILaunchpad. The search function is searching all the user’s personal folders for files but is not searching the public folder.

The search function is operating in the exact opposite manner as expected. Even if I click on the Public Folders folder then initiate a search the system still returns the files in user’s personal folders.

Additionally, once the search results are returned, the user who searched for the file can open the returned file that resides in another user’s personal folder.

    As Amit suggested - looks like your permission/rights setting are not set properly.
