Hi @Michelle Oswell ，
I tested according to your description, I encountered the same situation as you, added Indexed columns and then searched, but didn't get any results. But if using another column that is indexed, everything works fine. This is because sharepoint needs to automatically crawl to update the searched results, but Microsoft has no clear definition for the crawling time, and the completion time will be determined according to the amount of content on your website. For example, on my test site, I observed it all afternoon, but my search results were still not updated. It is recommended that you wait patiently for the crawl to complete to ensure the freshness of the search results.
